My husband and I stopped at the Fairmont while on our honeymoon. As soon as we arrived, we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff at the valet. When we arrived in our room, it was spectacular- Modern with a classic feel and great views of the pacific. About an hour later, a staff member arrived at our door with complimentary champagne and chocolate covered strawberries for our honeymoon. They were also helpful in getting us dinner reservations and recommending breakfast and options for going out after dinner. They even have complimentary on-site bikes, which are prefect for Santa Monica. We took the bikes out and rode around for hours at no extra charge. Overall amazing experience, would highly recommend for any occasion, or just for a nice getaway!
Staff is excellent. Room was new and tidy. There was a broken ironing board in the room that we called to have replaced when we checked in, and they sent up another right away. Excellent location, and valet parking is a nice touch, even though the garage is nice and clean. My only complaint is the amount of items in the room they charge you for if you touch them. Special towels, and a sprawling mini bar that takes up almost all the counter space in the bedroom, and a crowded mini fridge I had a hard time fitting a taco into. $4 for a can of pop, $9 for the snacks, and $30 for the towels if I remember correctly. Mini bar idea ok, but maybe less of it in the room, as it took up so much valuable space. I would stay again, but maybe request the extras be removed from the room before check-in.
I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It is a small place without the amenities such as restaurants and pools but it is tastefully appointed, intimate and well located. Noticed that the TV is a bit old and there is no movie menu but I am fine with that. Some people may be bothered by this. I do not need to be in my room watching movies when Santa Monica is right outside my door. Great neighborhood, nice baked treats in the morning buffet, friendly check-in staff.
