Nestled on the top of beachfront bluffs, the Fairmont Miramar in Los Angeles stands over the Santa Monica Beach at the Wilshire Boulevard’s tip from where the Third Street Promenade known for shops, entertainment, and restaurants; Santa Monica Pier; LA International Airport, and Palisades Park are very near. This one is for those who love simple and modest luxury accommodations that are located within the ambling distance of the tourist highlights. Despite this and in contrast, since 1921, the Fairmont Miramar Santa Monica has been the holiday address of several celebrities of Hollywood.

The ancient, big rooms in the Palisades are just made keeping in mind the family guests, while the modern ones in the higher tower are meant for all, especially those on the 8th to 10th floor corners with the vistas.
