This is not a "Shangri-La" hotel like the worldwide chain of luxury hotels (go and look at the shangri-la website if you are concerned.) It is just a dumpy awful hotel that calls themselves the "Hotel Shangri-La" and charges prices to suckers who think it is going to be a luxury hotel - I paid over $400 for a room that would be terrible for a Motel 8. Small, dirty, and had exposed wiring. I laughed when I saw the place - the only good thing about it is the central Santa Monica location. Read the non-promoted reviews, they are all one star. Staff is rude, rooms are awful and outdated with dirty mirrors and flooring from the 1980s. Do NOT give your money, or if it is too late contact your credit card company if you can get out of the reservations. The hotel is a SCAM. Don't just take my word for it, look at the pictures, also check out Yelp reviews that seem to not have as many promoted posts. This should be an $79/night hostel type hippie bar and crash pad, and is NOT a luxury hotel.

Room Tip: If you paid over $300 demand to at least get a good view. The rooms are gross.

An old-style hotel but with comfortable updates and lots of character. Unsurpassable location between the waterfront and the café/restaurant/shopping district, just a short walk from the pier. Very courteous and cordial staff.

Most impressed with staff! Everyone from the concierge, front desk, both bars, housekeeping, and valet treated us like royalty! Loved our one bedroom unit with kitchen, spacious bathroom, and beautiful ocean view! Wish we could live there! Thank you!

Overall view and location was absolutely stunning. Who wouldn’t want to wake up and first thing you see is a glistening ocean. If the water wasn’t scolding hot and if the tv worked properly, the trip would’ve been excellent
