The hotel was beautiful, it had amazing views of the ocean and the pier, the pool was heated and felt fantastic, and there was fireplaces on the deck to watch the pier. Staff were all great, th only downside was the small fridge filled with amenities, there was no room to put your own water or food.

The only complaint I had was that the first morning of my stay it was very very noisy due to a business conference. That woke us up on the first morning of our trip and was less than ideal.

This hotel was close to so many sites.

The Santa Monica Pier and Pavillion was within walking distance. The hotel had a free shuttle to these areas free of charge. The hotel's concierge was extremly helpful. This was the first hotel that met or exceeds their website. Will highly recommend this hotel.

Southern California Weekend

Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing
Location: Great location!!
We traveled to Santa Monica from Tennessee to visit family and our experience at Loews Santa Monica was so much more than we expected!! All the staff was so friendly and accommodating. We will definitely recommend Loews to everyone we know and we'll stay there anytime we are in Southern California! Thank you Loews for making our quick weekend trip one we will always remember.

Hotel Room next to an Alley

Pros: The hotel staff service.
Cons: Be more specific when someone pays winter rates for a room that has nothing to do with the name of the hotel.
Location: I only stayed one night. I was in Santa Monica to see my grandchildren in the Posada at St. Anne's School.
At this point, I will not book with Travelocity again. When I booked the room, I was under the impression that I could at least see part of the ocean and beach. The room was next to an alley with buildings across the way where people were regularly walking. That was the view!! I had to close the wooden window shades for privacy. I paid $ 331.09 for this room. I am extremely disappointed because I wanted my grandchildren who were visiting me to see the ocean from another view. I believe I am due a refund for this room. You might want to be more specific in your booking information.

Discounted Rooms

Placement of the room was quite a disappointment!! After paying for a room at winter rates which touted ocean views, I walk into a room where the view is a back alley!! False advertising??
