Offering a full-service spa and rooms with a 42-inch flat-screen TV, this oceanfront hotel is 3 minutes' drive from Santa Monica Beach Park. It features an outdoor pool and hot tub. The Fairmont Miramar is a top notch property. Our room was comfortable, clean, and had premium amenities - including a good-sized balcony and an ocean view. It was a great spot in Santa Monica to be close to the action, but not too much in the busiest part, so we could walk to/from the hot spots but still have some peace & quiet. The facility overall goes out of their way to ensure you feel comfortable.
