Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows

101 Wilshire Blvd. (Ocean Ave.) Santa Monica CA

This historic hotel is tucked away in a quiet Santa Monica setting.

The posh Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows started life as a private mansion owned by the founder of Santa Monica, Senator John P. Jones. For more than a century it has welcomed such illustrious guests as Howard Hughes, Marilyn Monroe, Eleanor Roosevelt, Senator and Mrs. John F. Kennedy and former President William Jefferson Clinton. It is a place of legend, beginning with the awesome Moreton Bay fig tree in the beautiful courtyard at the entrance. A broke Australian sailor left the sapling for this tree with a local bartender to pay for his bar tab. Today it is a centerpiece, as well as a reminder of the hotel's great respect for its historic past.

The guest rooms are divided between the older, six-story brick Palisades Wing and the contemporary, ten-story Ocean Tower. Many rooms on the upper levels have superb ocean views. As well, the grounds host a collection of 32 bungalows, which are the only accommodation of their kind in Santa Monica. They are separated from the main buildings by beautifully landscaped gardens and fountains, and their French doors open onto private patios overlooking the Pacific. Revamped in collaboration with Robb Report Home & Style, Bungalow One is a coveted sanctuary, with three bedrooms, making it ideal for families and groups. Décor throughout the accommodations is stunning, combining a casual, beachy aesthetic with classic mid-century modern design

House restaurant FIG relies heavily on the local Santa Monica Farmer's Market for menu ingredients. Both the Lobby Lounge and The Bungalow (with an outdoor terrace) offer relaxing settings for evening drinks. The property’s Exhale Spa welcomes guests with a full range of treatments. And for meetings and social events, this is one of the top choices in the L.A. area. The 25,000 square feet of function space includes gardens, executive boardrooms and the largest ballroom in Santa Monica. A signature, Eco-Meet, green conference planning program is available.
