We stayed at the Shore Hotel for the second time after deciding that in the California heat wave another beautiful hotel we stayed at for one night that didn't have air conditioning just wasn't going to cut it. This hotel has definitely improved in every way possible. From the welcoming staff and the mod and fun sitting area in the valet parking area, to the addition of refrigerators, ice and a mini bar in all rooms, to the artsy gift shop in the lobby, to the small but wonderful workout area, this hotel is fabulous in so many ways.
We walked from here to the Santa Monica pier, to the Venice Beach area one day, then walked the beach to Sunset Boulevard area. We never ordered room service, but it is available from the lovely Seasons 52 a few doors down. This hotel is a great value as well, if you are willing to forgo housekeeping services *(in keeping with the green views of the hotel), towels can be delivered and a $10 a day credit added to your bill. We made up the beds and cleaned up ourselves, why not? The Aveda bath products are a wonderful touch as well.
I just have nothing to say but great things about this wonderful hotel and would consider this a home base with everything needed for a long or short visit to beautiful Santa Monica!
