Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows
Santa Monica, California, USA
In a Nutshell:
Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows sits on the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Ocean Drive in Santa Monica, just across the street from the beach and four blocks from the Santa Monica Pier. It’s a SoCal urban resort and beach retreat with great ocean views, culinary offerings, and a little bit of nightlife, that works for leisure or business travelers.
EDITOR'S TIP: Ask for an ocean or pool facing room (not East or South). If you are interested in a bungalow, #24 and #26 have the best view of the ocean and each boasts an outdoor terrace.
The Style: Southern California beach house with a touch of mid-century glamor
Why We Love It:
- Luxury accommodations and service with a low-key California vibe
- The Bungalow Bar & Restaurant is the only West Hollywood scene in Santa Monica
- Onsite barber shop that serves drinks called Lloyd’s. And a Glam & Go offering if you’re headed out for the evening
- Downtown Santa Monica shopping and restaurants are all walkable
- Exhale Spa and a state of the art fitness center with outdoor space
The Unmissable Experience:
The Miramar Beach Club is a real treat. You’re escorted to the beach in a vehicle and set up with a luxury sand and sea experience. If you forgot to pack your swimsuit, the hotel has a partnership with Vilebrequin and plenty of options for all tastes. On the dining front, it’s a short walk to the Santa Monica classic, Chez Jay, where you’ll find the surf and Hollywood crowds having casual drinks and dinner.
