We are current guests of the hotel. Upon arrival our bellman Rubin (Scottish person I believe) was so nice and gracious. The hotel itself is lovely, modern and has a great location.

If you're heading to Santa Monica, you should definitely stay at Shore Hotel. Staff - the staff makes this place. Ruben took us from car to room, giving us champagne and even sparkling cider and sunglasses for the kids. Every time we walked into the hotel he took the time to say hi and make us feel special. That's the...

The rooms were very clean and modern. The location was perfect - walking distance to the beach/pier, 3rd St Prom and so many great restaurants. Views of the beach were beautiful. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, especially the bellman, Randall. Highly recommended!

Excellent service, everyone was very friendly, we weren't sure our AC was blowing cold enough in an engineer came up right away and fixed it, TC and Gabriella were fabulous. Mexican restaurant attached was delish. A bit pricey but was expected.

Had a wonderful time at this hotel! It was a super friendly staff, Mike was very kind to our family, and the amenities, pool and room were modern, clean and green. The location is ideal - right across from the pier and within walking distance to great shops and restaurants on Main Street.

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.
