We had an excellent stay for 2 nights in June and I wish we could have stayed longer. This hotel is clean and comfortable with helpful and friendly staff. The position is great - walking distance to shopping, eating and the beach. We didn't use the pool but it was very inviting. The gym was excellent. A bonus for us was that our family of 5 were accommodated in one room.
Overall I would highly recommend this hotel and if returning to Santa Monica would rebook it in a flash!

We share your sentiment that we wish your stay was longer and we look forward to being your host the next time you and your family visits Santa Monica.

Stayed here for three nights recently. This is a very nice hotel, but I think it needs to work out a few more kinks (since it's new). I'll list some Pros and Cons:

Pros: Excellent beds! Very high quality linens and comfy, supportive mattresses. Also, fantastic shower. Probably the best shower I've ever had - ANYWHERE. It's a "rain" showerhead, with great pressure. Also, the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Location really cannot be beat - shopping and pier right outside the door.

Cons : With no restaurant or bar, I think the prices should be a bit lower. This hotel is priced within range of others in the area, but the others have food and/or beverage options. The decor is modern and "trendy" - but actually borders on stark. I'm not sure how long the "hip" factor will last. On that note, the shower wall is just a ridiculous attempt to be trendy. I really don't know anyone who would actually want to look at someone while they're on the toilet - and the bathroom only looks pretty before it's been used. Who wants to look at a spotted shower wall? The "privacy" curtain still leaves about a 2 inch gap. I imagine in a few months, this curtain will begin to look pretty tattered and tacky (it's just like the old fashioned pull down window shades). Lastly, the beds are marketed as queens, but they most certainly are not. They are full size. Not a big problem for me, but I really don't like the deceptive marketing.

Overall, a really good hotel choice - but just not sure how the design elements will stand the test of time once the novelty wears off.

My family and I stayed at the Shore Hotel for 2 nights in Ocean View Premier with Two Queen Beds. Originally, we decided to stay here due to its proximity to shopping (3rd Street Promenade, Santa Monica Place) and the pier/beach. A bit on the expensive end, but we thought it was very well worth the money. The staff were very professional. The room had an amazing view to the pool and the pier, and the bed was one of the most comfortable ones l have ever had in hotels. Although facing a rather busy street, you can barely hear much from outside once the balcony door is closed. The location is great as expected - many bars, restaurants, cafes nearby, with a new mexican restaurant at the hotel opening soon.

The Shore Hotel is the finest Hotel we have ever stayed in. The facility is beautiful, the ocean view was breath-taking, and the people who work there are polite, kind, and charming. It is walking distance to the ocean, the Santa Monica Pier, shopping, and to many great restaurants. The work out room has state of the art equipment. The swimming pool, surrounded by heated lamps, adds to the external beauty of this gorgeous hotel.

Room Tip: Any room would be beautiful

Stayed on business initially to keep in budget, but would certainly go back. Large airy rooms, good design, environmentally conscious without compromising quality of life. Excellent and friendly service. The hotel is new and the restaurant will only open shortly but there a plenty of places to eat locally. No hotel bar yet, but many choices locally again. This is a good new venture. The building is an open 3 sides of a square around a pool with views of the sea.
