I have never actually stayed at this hotel but whilst I was travelling in California, I became lost and had no battery on my phone so couldn't find my own hotel. I went into this beautiful hotel and asked at the reception if the man could help me. He led me to their computer room and helped me with the...

We loved the contemporary design (the bathroom shade, colors, cleanliness, sophistication), the location, the "YES" nature of the staff. Parking was so helpful and not astronomical. We liked the LEED certification. Great recommendations for dinner. Would change nothing. Will tell everyone to go!

This LEED Gold Hotel was nice, but felt like something was missing. The courtyard and the pool were nice, but still, it felt somehow too sterile. I didn't like the hotel art. There were homeless people sleeping in the covered area to the left of the hotel. I wasn't approached by any person or asked for money during my three-night...

Stayed here for our anniversary and it was amazing. The Premium ocean view room was so great! Drank champagne on the balcony and watched the sunset. Front desk staff was wonderful. Room was super clean and comfy and modern! Will be back for sure!

This was an impromptu vacation, and the last leg of our trip to LA. The location close to Santa Monica pier and nearby shops was excellent. The room facing the ocean had an amazing view and the room was modern and comfortable. It was quite fun watching people go about their day at the beach from the balcony.

Exceptional service from the moment we arrived. Perfect location across the street from Santa Monica pier. Shopping and great dining steps away. Our kids loved the pool area, and the beach is across the street. Hotel is only 4 years old and has great decor. Little pricey, but appropriate for the area. Would absolutely stay here again.

Do not expect any common sense from the staff here. We have been charged $82.50 for parking 3 motorcycles for the night which would have fitted comfortably in 1 parking space for a car costing $35. Their sole aim is to relieve you of your money which equals 3 very unhappy customers.

The Shore hotel is a great place to stay if you want to be in the Santa Monica centre, on the beach. The service was fine, and the room was adequate if not special. To be honest, I had hoped for more, but maybe it was just the room I was in. The prices are quite high. The pool was...

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.
