From the moment we arrived at The Shore Hotel we felt special. Registration was painless and we were offered champagne as a welcoming gesture along with many non- alcoholic options! The room- was amazing! Don't be shy with the glass wall between bathroom and sleeping area- there is a privacy shade available at the push of a button! We were...

I have stayed at this hotel regularly for business trips, nearly 1x/3mos and find it comfortable, well managed, fun to stay at and while not a traditional luxury hotel, has many elements that are well above average. A huge bonus is the proximity to the beach to go for a run - it's awesome - just put on your shoes...

First the pros: -Location, location, location- if you want to be centrally located on the beach in Santa Monica, I don't think it gets better than this. -Rooms are really nicely appointed. Sleek, modern, clean. And, of course, environmentally friendly. -I ended up getting in a bit earlier than expected on my check-in date, and they were able to get...

If you're going to stay in Santa Monica, you may as well stay on the beach! Our room looked out over Ocean Avenue, and the east exit drops out right in the middle of Santa Monica. There is a pool area and a relaxing courtyard.

Located right across from the pier the double queen room slept four adults quite ok. The rooms were nice and clean. Staying in the area it is a bit pricier then some other parts of Los Angeles.

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.
