Relaxing, Beautiful surroundings A review of Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows

Me, my wife and 6 year-old son stayed at the hotel for a week in March 2002. For my son, the high points were Nintendo in the suite room, the extremely comfortable bedding, the pool (he spent hours there) and the easy access to Santa Monica Pier and the beach. The hotel is lovely and the staff is excellent. You actually "feel" like you're on vacation here, as if time has slowed down to let you enjoy life. My big appreciation for the staff came one day after exercising. I was in my sweat pants and hooded jacket when I stopped by the front desk to ask a question. There was a well dressed man behind me along with his wife-date-whatever, taking in the hotel. In any event, he felt the implied importance to cut in front of me to address the hotel clerk. The clerk, recognizing this, told him to hold on a minute while he attended to my needs, pointing out that I was ahead of him in line. I smiled to myself and told the clerk that I appreciated his professionalism. I love this place! I hope to stay here again if the prices don't get in the George Clooney range. And no, that wasn't George trying to cut in front of me. But keep up the good work Fairmont. This is a wonderfully located hotel, well maintained and an address that makes you feel important. Alan
