We have just spent 5 days based at the Shore Hotel (after 4 days in Anaheim). What a great place to stay - so much to do from bike rides along the beach to it being a good base for still doing things like Universal Studios and shopping. Location is excellent, staff are great....would definitely stay again.

After seven days of Legoland and Disneyland, we were ready for some pampered and stylish downtime, and this hotel didn't disappoint. The staff were universally friendly and helpful with everything from poolside self-serve breakfast to restaurant and shopping recommendations to driving directions to LAX. The location can't be beat with the pier and beach (and all of the characters these... More

Although the room is definitely on the pricey side, is there a price on a prime location, five star hotel right near the Santa Monica boardwalk? My girlfriend and myself came here on a little stay cation, and we were not disappointed. Everything in this hotel is an exquisite choice, with staff that is willing to help you find hidden... More

We loved our stay at Shore Hotel, our room was just divine with the best views of the Pier, Ocean & most stunning sunsets from our balcony! We booked an ocean view room for a stop off on the end of our NYC holiday & it was totally worth it. There is a back entry that leads onto the local... More

We were seeking an alternate to airport hotels for a one night layover at lax. The shore is a great option for this within 30 mins to airport but with a resort feel opposite the pier and 20 mins walking distance from venice beach This give you the option to get out and enjoy some of local Sights and food...

I was stopping over in Santa Monica for a few days prior to a conference in San Diego. I have to say that the hotel was fantastic. Everything looks new and the contemporary styling outside the hotel and by the pool continues in the rooms. The stylish rooms have lots of little nice touches that you really like when travelling....

I don't think the location could be any better for Santa Monica. You have the beach, shopping centers, nightlife and restaurants within a block radius of the hotel. The beach is literally across the street from the front entrance and Nordstrom is across the street the other direction. Third Street Promenade, lots of restaurants and bars are within walking distance... More

We stayed here overnight on the way back from Hawaii. The location is excellent, almost opposite Santa Monica Pier. All the staff members we met from check in to room service were charming and helpful. Rooms very comfortable with good bathrooms. Although the hotel doesn't have it's own restaurant there are many options nearby.

Great Location very close to SM Pier. Third Street Promenade was also very close. Only one road needs to be crossed to reach the Ocean. Easy Valet Parking under the Hotel. Parking Fee is high but seems to be normal for LA. Would recommend to stay when you dont like the LA crowds.
