Conveniently located in Santa Monica, CA, the Miramar offers the best of LA: old-world Hollywood bungalows, a location near the beach and the Santa Monica Pier, and great restaurants and shops within walking distance. Kids will love the hotel’s central pool, complete with all kinds of toys, while parents will love the spacious suites and Exhale Spa featuring yoga, fitness facilities, and spa treatments galore.
