Hotel Reviews: Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows is a pet-friendly hotel located at 101 Wilshire Boulevard in Santa Monica, California just steps from the Pacific Ocean. The hotel includes a 10-story tower and 6-story wing with guest rooms and suites, as well as 32 private garden bungalow accommodations. For this stay, we opted to stay in bungalow #166, a Signature King Bungalow unit which was 335 sq feet with a private entrance and small private dining patio. The hotel also has larger more expensive, two-story bungalows which we did not check out for this stay.
For onsite dining, Fairmont Miramar has Fig Restaurant, however dogs aren't allowed to dine on the patio. Fortunately, the hotel has outstanding 24-hour room service so we had our meals delivered to our bungalow patio. And the hotel is located in a perfect area of Santa Monica for walking to hundreds of other dining options. For simple casual dining, Tender Greens is right down the block and had a nice dog friendly patio area.
The bungalow units were very private and quiet which made for a relaxing stay for me and my people. The hotel was comfortable for me with plenty of nice grassy areas outside of my room for walking around and also in the neighborhood along Ocean Avenue. The neighborhood vibe is hip and filled with many people riding bicycles and dogs. The Fairmont Miramar is truly notable in that it allows dogs to stay with their people through their Pets Always Welcome (PAW) program with no fee. High-paw! At check-in you are asked to sign the pet policy and are supposed to be provided with complimentary pet amenities, including bowls, bed. etc. We signed the pet policy, but weren't offered any special amenities, so be sure to ask if you need something. I was also in Santa Monica back in September 2012 which you can check out Santa Monica.
