A+ location and really: "photogenic", "eco-sensitive" and all the jargon, towels, slippers and robes and premier packaged trendy branded $10 roasted minibar nuts in place - I found there was something flat about the entire experience - it's not romantic, cozy, nor truly bench mark hip... While the rooms are really nice (albeit a tad small and yes: the rooms... More

This hotel is perfectly situated in Santa Monica. The beach and the famous pier is right across the street. The look is modern and it is an "eco" building. We had a room on the 3rd floor at the base of the "U" shape of the building, looking over the pool. My wife is extremely sensitive to noise and the... More

Had a most enjoyable stay at the Shore Hotel earlier this month prior to going on a Panama Canal Cruise. The hotel is really lovely and in an ideal spot in Santa Monica - being very handy for the Pier and the Third Street Promenade. The Pacific views and Pacific sunsets from our hotel balcony were always a joy. Special... More

This strikingly exterior designed hotel faces the beach. It is just about across the street from the Pier, so it really does not get better than this location in Santa Monica. LEED accredited in 2012, itis a good effort at fun boutique hotel design from Gensler architects. The effect is that you get to be cool and feel good about... More

Although this hotel has a great location, the level of service and professionalism among the staff left much to be desired. I experienced several problems during my stay, including being unable to take the elevator from the 1st floor to the 2nd to get out of the back wing, and an exceedingly unhelpful check-out process. The elevator situation was a... More

Great location. That's about the best I can say. Direct ocean view was not accurate description. Bathroom in suite too small for a family. Service is excellent. Staff very helpful. Boutique style hotel. Very modern. Checkout time is a ridiculously early 11 am.

We just finished 4 great days at the Shore Hotel. It is a perfect place for families to check out all the action of Santa Monica. You are within walking distance to tons of great restaurants, shopping and across the street from the Pier! The staff at this hotel is absolutely wonderful. They made our stay terrific!

After staying here for a long weekend, I adore this hotel! It’s a bit spendy, but you definitely get your money’s worth. I was traveling for business, but brought the husband and two kids along so we could have some fun together on my days off. The first great thing about this hotel, and by far what sets it apart...

Stayed here for 4 days. During checkout it seems many customers were surprised by the $70.day taxes and fees. I guess that may be expected when you stay so close to the beach. We had upgraded our room for $25/day to a King Premium, but in retrospect the room was still quite small. I should have compared room sizes first.... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood 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.
