I stayed 2 nights at the Shore Hotel on a business trip. I didn't know what to expect as I wasn't involved in selecting the hotel. It was a delightful surprise - very hip look and feel to the place. The sleeping room and bathroom were good size, with plenty of lights and plugs in both spaces. The hotel's free wifi was very fast. While I had very limited time to be a tourist, it would be a good choice for tourists given its location across the street from the Santa Monica Pier and the 3rd Avenue Promenade. My group got an excellent price, so it was also a good value.
