Stayed there after 30+ years and the upgrades are beautiful. When the pandemic restrictions leave us it will be even more enjoyable. The kitchen produces delicious meals. There is nothing more to say despite the requirement for more words. The software writer can fix this.

This hotel was incredible to stay at. We really enjoyed the breakfasts at the hotel restaurant. The hotel staff was very friendly. The location was incredible being right across the street from an entrance to Santa Monica Beach and being near the 3rd Street shopping area.

It was a long time I wanted to experience a stay at the Shangri-la. I got the chance to book one of the marvelous suites to take all my family there. We really hope to repeat the stay soon. Higly recommanded.

Service & value were great, all the employees were friendly and helpful. Curtains in the bathroom / shower had mold on them however. Rooms were otherwise cleanly and accommodating. Room service & food were both excellent as well.

We visited for a few days in late April and loved our stay! We will definitely stay here again. Quick pros and cons... PRO: -Staff was always friendly, fast, and very helpful. We were also able to check in several hours early. -Very cool, retro hotel with updated amenities. -Beautiful beach view that couldn't be beat! Though it's right up to the street, traffic noise was never an issue. Always had a peaceful night's sleep. -Very pretty courtyard, pool, and hot tub area that are away from the general public. -Beach pedestrian walkway is located directly at the corner, so access was a short walk across the street. The others are several blocks away. -Room came with an empty mini fridge (i.e. doesn't charge you to use it) which was SO nice to have! -COVID safety protocols were definitely in place & a relief to see. CONS: -We had continuous issues with our TV volume so we were not able to use it. -The Onyx Rooftop Bar was still closed due to renovations, but there's plenty to see outside the hotel. -Quite a few minor cosmetic updates are needed i.e. furniture and floor touch ups (lots of scuffs), paint here and there, and the sun-bleached pool towels could use replacing. But overall our room was clean and tidy and bed was comfy. -Other minor items included our room key not initially working, missing room service menu, robes, and 'do not disturb' sign, and makeup mirror not working, but these were either quickly remedied or weren't an overall issue. Other notes: -The closet in our king room was VERY small. Plan accordingly. -No ice maker on floors. You have to call down for it - but they were always very fast. (Less than 5 min)
