Beautiful hotel with fantastic amenities. The pool, spa and bar area was gorgeous and comfortable even in winter. The room had an excellent view and was quiet. Beds could have been bigger and more comfortable. We ate breakfast there and Mike and Astrid were extremely friendly and helpful. Mike had fantastic advice re: public transport etc.

The staff at the Shore hotel is outstanding. Checking in Karla and Kim both helped me with smiles on their face and great conversation. We were offered champagne upon arrival and said maybe later.

This hotel tries to be a hip one, but it does not work, for some reason. It's very clean, location is great. Though surely overpriced. Hope airbnb and other innovations and new competition will tame hotels like this. Front desk was friendly, though understaffed. I had to wait for the other people to be served, no second back-up person to...

Great modern hotel across road from Santa Monica beach and pier. Well appointed rooms, a little on the small size, but with balcony with lovely views of the pier.

We booked this hotel at the last minute after a change of plans for our last night in the US. The hotel is well located with views over the Santa Monica Pier and the foreshore (we had an ocean view room). The bed is comfortable and the water pressure in the shower good but otherwise the room is quite basic....

Dear carolemK7065LR, I'm so glad that we are able to provide some solace after a long day. Did you know our high efficiency shower heads use between 1.75 and 2.0 gallons per minute, which is 20% to 30% less than mandated by law. The rainfall effect definitely adds to the relaxation! We hope to host you as our guest again...

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
