for boutique hotels. LOW. Minimalist deign is nice but minimal amenities are not . In all my years of foreign and domestic travel, I have never seem a $5 charge for bedroom slippers. A new standard! The air conditioning seemed to cut off at night even though we set the thermostat to 69 degrees. I'm sure the hotel would "claim... More

The hotel is very well located in Santa Monica. Overlooks the beach, and in an area with many restaurants and shops. Staff is friendly and quite helpful. The facilities benefit from the hotel being very recent, rooms are comfortable. Room size could be somewhat bigger. In terms of price, at 700$ per night in a double bed was pricey!

Last of our hotels on CA1 road trip and the best. Located very close to the pier with plenty of restaurants nearby and 3rd street just around the corner. Very swift valet and concierge service on arrival, smoothe check-in with complimentary champagne during the service. Twin queen room very comfortable with plenty of room for the three of us. Very...

There is only one word to describe my experience at Shore and that is "FANTASTIC" I stayed there last week (July 14) for a week during a business trip to Santa Monica. Wasn't expecting much to be honest because I personally had never heard of this hotel before. It was a wonderful experience throughout. Hotel is situated in the heart... More

Great welcome pack for our daughter and champagne for us! Great room, comfortable beds, free wi fi. Nice pool and spa, with bar. Helpful desk and valet staff. Really convenient location, close to beach, 3rd street promenade etc. Blue Plate Taco, next door is a must to try. We loved it so much we came back a few weeks later.... More

Stayed at the wonderful Shore Hotel recently on a family holiday to California. Beautiful hotel in a great location only minutes from the beach. Cannot thank the staff enough for their help throughout our stay, especially when we were attempting to contact the airline in order to locate our missing suitcases! Special thanks to Tony and Randall! Would definitely return!

I have friends staying at the Shore Hotel for their first visit ever to Los Angeles.

We had to put in a good word about Raul Saldana. Our family stayed at the Shore Hotel in Santa Monica for over a week. Raul was the bartender poolside and honestly, he made their stay perfect. He was incredibly attentive, remembered their likes and dislikes and just an all around great guy. If you go to the Shore Hotel... More

If you are looking for a family friendly hotel with good facilities and right at the beach, you will find it at the Shore. We arrived to a great service and experienced exactly that for our 4 nights.

Great hotel and great beach front location, perfect for exploring Santa Monica and also handy for down town LA (20 minute drive, dead easy). We got a glass of free Champagne each on arrival.
