A great hotel for a stay in los angeles! You are right at the sea in Santa Monica, i would definitely book the rooms with a partial ocean view. The ' normal rooms' face the street. Within 5 minutes walking you can reach the 3. avenue with its numerous shopping. Restaurants are likewise in the proximity, a great view you have of course Santa Monica Pier. Wi-fi is available in the lobby included. read hotel review

The hotel is relatively big located on 4 floors. It made us really everything a very clean impression. Only had the suite ($480,00 a night) reserve in advance and paid (without any meals). Wi-fi was not included, but on demand during check-in, there was, after a e-mail address and a (free) ' löws membership 'hinreissen' left, these also free of charge and receive. Guest structure seems really everything in, noticed many business conferences seem instead to find. You can directly in front of the hotel entrance and immediately one worries about a, key into your hand press, bags into ... your hand press and in peace check in.

    So the room, respectively we had a suite with sea view (separate living and sleeping areas) was perfect! Since it was missing to really nothing. Kafé, minibar, hair dryer, 3 tvs (also in the bathroom!) , ironing board and iron, all also very clean and the furnishing very well-kept and very good level.

    We had as already mentioned 'without any mahlzeiten' booked. Lack restaurants nearby then nevertheless once in the hotel dinner. There was a large to seaside gelgegenes restaurant, which every evening, different (but very expensive)' menus' offers, however only until about 2130. Then you eat but the 'standard card' (the typical american hotel offers just) either in the room or bar area. We provided us a portion fries and two different pastagerichte plus 1 bottle of mineral water, and 2 open glasses of red wine. Cost: 86 dollalalla... Quantity very generous, fries io, pasta very overcooked... Oh well...

    Service at the front desk (check-in/check-out) correct, but quite a little significant accumulation friendliness. Room service was excellent, the Latino-cleaning lady very friendly and tried hard. Car-parking, and concierge also warm and friendly. 1 downside was however then nevertheless: one managed despite several attempts not, the kaffekapseln in the room tissues. Also upon arrival it took 2 attempts, the sofa bed for our child to get. To the charwoman all impeccable english speaking.

    There is a pool, as well as a jacuzzi, both the exterior of the hotel and both heated. Once used, okay, something even start chlorifiziert the water... The concierge offers all information which one for jegwelche trips need, otherwise it gives somewhere also a gym (not seen not used). Other services safe available, but not used.

    The hotel is located right next to sea, about 15 minutes' walk away from Santa Monica Pier, which in things fast food and children amusement which sells everything. One of the few hotels in Santa Monica which was not on the freeway, and yet via a bridge must be crossed if you to the beach want. Further purchase possibilities or ' better restaurants' not without a car easily accessible.

The hotel is located directly on the beach of Santa Monica with views of the pier and the ferris wheel. The beach here is beautiful. Right at the hotel there is a bicycle rental and from here you can great boardwalk along until Venice drive. Get a room overlooking the pool, not to the road. The rooms are very beautifully furnished and large. wlan gives it in the hotel only for a fee, in the lobby is possible but free i-pads available. The gym cost for adequate 1 0 $entrance, i thought that was a ridiculous. Parking at the hotel ... is very, very expensive (then 3 6 $per day). We have simply our car in the garage of the Santa Monica shopping center parking. The parking garage has 24 hours and costs per day 1 8 $. You walk about 10 minutes to get there. General i found the hotel beautiful, perfect location, i would stay there again, when i return to la or Santa Monica am. read hotel review

Hotel has a brilliant location - directly on the beach Santa Monica. Shops and restaurants and cafes there are during the day at the beach respectively during the day and in the evening in the pedestrian area (300 meters on foot). Pool is relatively shallow, but ok. Chairs are not the whole day in the sun - shade by the hotel. Beach is very nice-towels for the beach there are in the hotel. Furthermore there is free wi-fi. read hotel review

    Mostly clean. We had unfortunately a (standard -) room to the street back. With closed balcony from the noise forth not a problem. As soon as you but opens: noise -> 4 lane street, construction site opposite. The dirt on the balcony railing is from the site. The balcony not really big. People, the expensive cars love, but the view of the driving by to get your moneys worth. All other should seaside book. The usual test-once with the finger over the picture frames to dust control-the loews here definitely also not pass (but you have fairly say, that 80% of the 4-and five star hotels bomb would). Sloppy job unfortunately run-down and stained. Room really spacious with massive beds with 4 pillows. Mini bar subject to a charge, there was a coffee machine with excellent coffee ( tabs) free of charge. The tabs even refilled daily. Furthermore, lots of storage, large closet, desk and more seating possibility. Lcd flat -tv with many channels. Spacious, modern bathroom with double -washbasin, separated shower -toilet-area, large mirror and even a further tv in the bathroom! With the bathtub, at the same time, shower is, you see, at least this refurbished recently is. Toilet-paper american-typical a touch of nothing.

    The hotel lies very prominent between street and beach. On the street it is on the ground floor inside. From there there is 4 floors up and down. From the elevator issue, especially if you at the top to the beach will I above already reported. On the other side the hotel lies, by a small side street separated, directly at the beach. By a hotel's own estate with lawn and possibilities to lie down takes you directly to the sand. Location= top Very good: you can from the beach only with room card back to the hotel, entrance furthermore cameras. From the hotel one is in 5 minutes at the pier respectively 5 to 10 minutes the shopping streets of santa monica away. A bicycle etc. - rental is directly in front of the hotel at the beach. Evenings it is recommended however, above on the road along to/ from the hotel the direction of the centre to go and not at the beach, since nightfall there many windy make romp around and the orange lit boardwalk to night everything but welcoming. The hotel pool we didn't use, during the day it seems however quite crowded.

Hotel in preferred, if not directly at the beach on Santa Monica Pier. It found would stay different events in the hotel instead, why the staff overwhelmed. Overall not a 5 star service.

Great hotel in the best location, but you have to the hidden expenses mention! Parking costs about 2 0 €the night and the wi-fi network must be per device pay. So if you for example in iPad and 2 syphons has, that is really expensive. In the lobby wi-fi internet access is free of charge. Price/performance ratio is well.

We had a very commodious suite with a large terrace and a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean and the pier. The hotel is a bit old, but the service is excellent. To make you feel welcome and at home. The Loews was one of our stops on our trip to the United States and Hawaii and will remain in very good memories. It is to be recommended at any time. read hotel review

The location and views to the beach were brilliant. However the hotel is primarily for business reserved. The hotel is almost daily as a place for business used. Here one noticed a clear 'preference for business'. The prices the food is very high. We preferred it, at the beach our snack to go ☺ all in all is the value for money for a holiday hotel ideal. The hotel has a very good fitness area (Spinning bikes, treadmill and various fitness equipment). In the sauna was every day fresh fruit to find, as well as various toiletries. read hotel review

The loews Santa Monica is super at the beach and is characterized mainly guests from. Of of the lobby you are about minutes at the beach and sea. Attention should be paid to this however, that the beach not is private. Here always lots of people and partly is the beach not always clean. There are in the hotel but still a pool, however rather to celebrate as for a family vacation is suitable. Lots of young people from the greater los angeles it here at the weekends to use. To the rest of the hotel is not lots to ... say. The rooms and whole area corresponds to the style of loews and is of a good standard. In the rooms could be a little bit modernised (tv, bathroom.). read hotel review

No apology given. but us only times threatened, the Loews with the mini bar 'cheat' can, as in every mini bar a camera is installed, the recording, who had stolen.

If you want to stay in LA, you should choose Santa Monica. The Loews has a good price/performance ratio. The rooms are not new, but well equipped. The location is ideal and especially to be highlighted is the happy hour on the terrace. The service was great and the prices are okay. Guest parking expensive, but great service. We have felt ourselves extremely comfortable and would stay here again in a heartbeat. read hotel review

Impossible, when you are on holiday and want a good nights sleep. Valet parking for $34 much too expensive. You can next door in the garage much cheaper parking. $9 per day.

    Location right next to the Santa Monica Pier right on the beach. Great. Restaurants and shopping center in the immediate area. Shopping center only with luxury brands - for the regular vacationers inaccesible. Location wise restaurants in the area from the price. Easy access to Beverly Hills Hollywood in short distance. Location to the beach is amazing.

Tastefully designed (interior), expensive hotel almost right on Santa Monica Beach. Nice, spacious, with palm trees stocked glass-fronted lobby toward the Pacific Ocean.

    We had a very nice room overlooking the pool in the courtyard and a partial view of the ocean and the Pier - terrific! The room was might not be in the top-CONSERVATION (carpet musty), but the location of the room and view were more important for us. Very good in-room coffee maker. Free WiFi in the reception area. Theoretically also available in the room, but it didn't work. Concierge and IT professionals of the hotel were helpless.

    About 250 meters to the beach, to the Santa Monica Pier 500m, there is a better location in regards access in Santa Monica. Walking distance to the shopping center and 3rd Street passage about 10 minutes up the immediate area around the Löws is not only maintained but that is the reality in L. A. We felt there during the day, the pier, beach, the 3rd Street of Santa Monica, always comfortable and safe.

    The room just blew us away. We booked a deluxe room. A huge bed, a colossal flat screen TV, a small sofa, a sitting area, bathroom with television. What more could you ask for. The view was terrific. We had a view of the pool and a partial view of the ocean. The partial ocean view but is an understatement. If you are on a small balcony down, you had a wonderful view of the beach. One couldn't overrate the balcony, since it is only a small ledge, perhaps to dry your towel.

    There is a very nice restaurant, in which you can take breakfast, from the menu or a buffet. We found the buffet which but with 27.00 dollar is quite expensive, but it was really delicious. But you can also in the hall on a small bar crossants and bagels and also so you can get very nice place to just sit with all the ammenities such as jam, cream cheese. There you can pay immediately or be delivered to the room bill.

    The service is great. In this hotel is the slogan "the guest is a Star". So you got. I needed an extra blanket, promptly delivered in 5 minutes. At the front desk can post, then you have to care about their guests. You have to ask, as there is no Mailboxes are.

    The pool is not very big and not very deep. You can anywhere. Towels available. However, it was a little bit annoying, that on some beach chairs already towels, even though we have been there is none. The view to the beach from the pool is stunning. You couldn't see enough. It is such a nice. To get to the beach one with a lift and then have to cross a small street. Back to the hotel only by its room card. Or you have to the main entrance. There is a gym, but we didn't use it.

    The hotel is located right on the beach in Santa Monica with incredible view of the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Monica pier, that at night with the rides beautifully lit up. The new open shopping mall and the Third Street (pedestrian zone) is about 10 minutes walking distance Lots of cafes, shops and cinemas you can visit. The entertainment like Hollywood, Universal Studios, Venice Beach, Malibu and more are a short drive away.
