Nestled above Santa Monica State Beach, the historic oceanfront Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows boasts spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and over the years has played host to a number of high-profile guests, including Marilyn Monroe, Jean Harlow and Eleanor Roosevelt, who all loved the seclusion and privacy of the hotel's thirty-two gorgeous bungalows, which are dotted throughout its fragrant gardens. For almost a hundred years this award-winning property has offered its guests superbly efficient and unobtrusive service and today features award-winning therapies at its Exhale Spa, casually elegant cuisine at its two dining venues, a fabulous outdoor swimming pool and a 24-hour fitness centre with the latest equipment, while newly renovated guest rooms and suites exude relaxed Californian chic and are located in the historic Palisades Wing and ten-storey Ocean Tower - many also enjoy beach views from their private balconies. Just a complimentary transfer away (or a five-minute walk) is the hotel's Miramar Beach Club, which allows guests to enjoy the services of beach butlers proffering drinks, snacks and a dining menu throughout the day, with complimentary games and activities available for all the family to enjoy on the beach. Those guests with shopaholic tendencies, however, will be delighted to learn that the fashionable boutiques and restaurants of Beverly Hills are less than half an hour away, while Santa Monica itself has its own fair share of upmarket shopping opportunities at Santa Monica Place.
