My first time in Cali but not my first travel experience. My daughters and I planned a fun weekend itinerary to celebrate a milestone birthday. I was not happy about the limited services provided for the high cost of the stay...no birthday wishes (towels formed into a cake, or chocolates in the room, complimentary wine...) No airport transport to/from hotel (not even recommendations to assist) and mostly disappointed in paying for parking. The staff was not very friendly and rather cold and unwelcoming to boot. I will not come back to Loews nor will I recommend to anyone to pay exorbitant prices for simply a nice room with a bed in it. People pay for an experience and Loews certainly did not deliver.

Good stay - not 5 star in my opinion. Lack of service at the pool area. Rooms were nice and roomy but nothing special. Pillows were terrible. We did not get a welcome drink but I saw others did. Most staff were friendly. Gym is great and has everything you need. Pool could use some improvements by having better service and changing old towels/chairs. Just didn’t seem like a 5 star.

Amazing location right on the beach, friendly staff. Feels like a safe cocoon in the midst of Santa Monica tourist frenzy.
