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.

We chose this hotel based on price promotion. The actual Location which was directly by the ocean. But mostly for the fabulous Poolside area. All which were great. We had a lovely getaway weekend. Thanks so much.

Aside from the fact that the rooms are poorly designed, the bath tub is tiny, and the hotel bed and sheets felt old and crumply... my stay which started off as okay, became a nightmare. I valeted my car around 3:30 pm. The next morning upon check out I called the valet and they told me my tire was flat. The Valet said he knew about it at 9 pm the previous night and told the hotel receptionist but no one told me. When I asked her why she didn't tell me when she knew, she said she was going to but didn't. And so I had to spend hours the following morning figuring out how to get my car towed and fixed. I had to literally cancel two Zoom meetings on Thursday morning. No one from the hotel asked if they could do anything or even asked if I was okay. All of this could have been avoided had I been told the previous night that my tire was flat. They claim I may have gotten the tire punctured on my way over to the hotel, but that's not possible because it's a brand new 2020 BMW i3 that has tire sensors that notify me when air is leaking (and it didn't), there was no leak so the puncture happened under the hotel's supervision. I e-mailed the staff and then the owner, and no one has gotten back to me. No apology. Nothing. Your money is better spent elsewhere.

I stayed at Hotel Shangri-La in June of 2020 for 2 nights, for ~$200/night. For that price, the hotel is an incredible value! The guest room was well appointed and chic, the bed was very comfortable, and everything was very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout, and were clearly mindful of the coronavirus pandemic. Would be 5 stars except for an issue with the shower not draining / the bathroom mildly flooding, which I was surprised by. However, the effect of this was minimal + the bathroom was otherwise EXCEPTIONALLY nice for the price point.

Stayed in the Penthouse Suite facing Ocean Dr. the walk to the beach was a bit of a trek but well worth the trip. In terms of the hotel, the staff and food was beyond expectations. We will definitely be back.
