Hotel Report

Why Stay At Fairmont Miramar Hotel and Bungalows

This Santa Monica, CA, beachside inn epitomizes classic Hollywood glamour, thanks to the sweeping, palm-studded entrance, a large, umbrella-clad pool deck, and FIG restaurant, where a polished crowd dines on seasonal dishes such as quinoa with apples and roasted carrots.

The Scoop

Since the 1920s, privacy-seeking Hollywood starlets—among them Greta Garbo and Marilyn Monroe—have found refuge at this bluff-perched resort overlooking Santa Monica beach. The property's 32 stand-alone bungalows, with patios surrounded by thick tropical greenery, are still coveted by A-listers today—but plenty of nonfamous luxury-seekers appreciate the 302 Edwardian-meets-California-cottage rooms set in the 1924 Palisades Building or the newer 10-story Ocean Tower. Snob appeal is blissfully absent here: service is warm rather than white-gloved; the scene around the pool and at the Exhale spa is laid-back, and the cuisine at the inventive, farm-to-table FIG restaurant is unfussy. It's a perfect mix of Beverly Hills luxe and barefoot Santa Monica.

Insider Tips

If you're staying for a weekend, arrange to stop by the nearby Santa Monica Farmers' Market on Sunday morning to pick up local produce, flowers, and more.

Mingle with fellow guests over hand-pressed blueberry and thyme cocktails courtesy of mixologist Charlotte Voisey, who serves drinks next to the Lobby Lounge's waterfall at dusk.

Preferred Airport

Arrive at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) which is approximately 8 miles (25-45 minutes depending on traffic) from the hotel.

101 Wilshire Boulevard, Santa Monica, California, United States
