Spend the Holidays With Us

It’s time to come and celebrate with us. After such a challenging year, don’t you feel like wrapping your arms around family, friends, festivities and fun?

The Miramar has been a glamorous second home for locals and long-distance travelers for 100 years–this is our Centennial Anniversary–and we have a fantastic calendar of events that will help you break loose a bit and bask in the warmth of the holiday season.

Remember what Katharine Hepburn so famously said: “If you obey all of the rules, you miss all of the fun.” Raise a glass to the gorgeousness of the season and enjoy our special holiday events: Only at the Miramar.

Meet Me Under the Fig Tree

December 3-24

The Miramar has a long and cherished history of giving back to the local community. Stop by our iconic Moreton Bay Fig Tree for our annual Meet Me Under the Fig Tree drive, where you can drop off canned food and clothing (new or gently worn) for Santa MoniCARES, a partnership with Miramar that benefits the local nonprofits Westside Food Bank and Chrysalis. Pick up hot chocolate daily from 5-7 pm and join us under the Tree for a festive photo op under the tree of lights and life-size gifts.

100 Years of Miramar – Limited Edition Centennial Posters

The Miramar opened as a hotel in 1921, and we’ve had a long and storied history over these past 100 years, with guests like Marilyn Monroe, Greta Garbo, President John F. Kennedy and more.

To honor our 100th anniversary, we’ve commissioned a set of two limited-edition silk-screen printed posters, because who doesn’t love a collectible? We are excited to be working with Studio Number One, the iconic agency founded by artist and activist Shepard Fairey.                                   

The Centennial Posters will be available for sale to locals and guests beginning December 1, who hold a special place in their hearts for the Miramar and want to give back. A portion of the proceeds will benefit local social justice nonprofit and hotel partner, Liberty Hill.
