For families seeking a dose of sun, sand, and surf, there’s a special place tucked along the California coast known for its broad beaches, stunning pink and gold sunsets, and endless array of activities. Offering a Southern California escape that seems an entire world away from the metropolitan bustle of Los Angeles, there’s no question about it: Santa Monica is a total catch.
As family accommodations go, Santa Monica’s Fairmont Miramar is not your average bear. Set on a palm-lined bluff overlooking the boundless Pacific, it’s more than an elegant urban roost perfectly situated for exploring the city. It’s an inviting hideaway that pays attention to the little details — the ones that make a vacation truly extraordinary for adults and kids alike.
When a family first steps into their accommodations, kids ages 4 to 12 years old can find their own Wild Republic plush animal, child-sized robe, and a courtesy hello platter filled with healthy snacks (or for a sweet treat, a sand bucket filled with candy, available as an additional amenity for purchase). And those ages 2 to 8 years old are personally welcomed with their names spelled out in colorful bath sponge letters.
