I have never written a review on Trip Advisor before, but had such a great experience at the Shore Hotel, I wanted to share it. The hotel is beautiful (with great ocean views) and located so conveniently in lovely Santa Monica. The rooms are decorated in a strikingly pretty style and color motif. What really makes this hotel stand out however, is the excellent and friendly staff. I felt so warmly welcomed by Lindsay and Stevie at the front desk! James (bell captain) should get an award for patience, as he so kindly took me back and forth between 2 different rooms when I wasn't sure which one I preferred upon check in. Randall (bell staff) should also be commended for his genuine friendliness and helpfulness. When I had a small problem with the bill (which I noticed after I returned home), it was dealt with immediately and with great responsiveness by both Bobby (reservation manager) and Jim the front desk manager. I travel to the LA area at least twice a year and have had the good fortune of staying at many highly rated hotels. However, the Shore Hotel is tops on my list, and I look forward to staying there again when I return to LA in July.
