  • Le Merigot, A JW Marriott Beach Hotel and Spa

    I wasn’t sure what partial beach access meant when I booked, and was worried it would turn out to be an understatement. However all it meant was that a small apartment building stands between the hotel and the beach, which did not limit access at all. I was in town for the E3 conference, and the hotel had shuttles running all the way down town every twenty minutes! That’s service if I ever saw it. My fav part of the hotel was the outdoor workout machine setup. Its like a private Muscle Beach, which I saw on the Venice Boardwalk. Overall, nice but not somewhere I feel compelled to return.

    I very much enjoyed my stay at Le Merigot. The location is perfect, with easy access to the beach and downtown Santa Monica. Our room was very comfortable, but smelled like a combo of eggs and cleaning chemicals…a huge balcony with a view of the Santa Monica Pier made up for that! Didn’t try the restaurant, but they did have afternoon appetizers on the pool patio that I sampled. The staff was helpful and timely across the board, which made our stay easy. Aside from the construction, which I assume will be done soon, I can safely recommend this hotel to anyone heading out west for some time in the sun.
