The location of Shore hotel is just fabulous! We stayed in the very quiet room of 321 with view of the poll and a bit of the sea and palm tree park in front of it. Randall, the really excellent porter (?) helped us with our bags and showed us the tecnicals in the room and offered to get us some ice while just being very low key and friendly (he was a good start to our stay). Everything in the hotell is clean. The pool was heated but we did t go Swimming - december this year was rather cold. I wish the hotell would have served breakfast but they do not have a restaurant facility. The excellent staff at the front desk recommended us to try Jinkys (just around the corner - and we tried that and IHOP during our stay - se separate rewiews). The rooms and reception are open, airy and arty:ish. So was the pool area. Unfortunatley we didnt try either the gym our jogging on the beautiful park walk above the beach (on the other side of the street - but would love to come again and do so). The spoy IS uncomromized the best in SM as it is located over a full block just between the park overlooking the santa monica pier, beach and pch (you dont hear the traffic from the pch) on one side and on the back (there is a guest entrance here) you are just across the road from tSanta Monica place shopping center which is really really nice and worth a visit. I would definitley stay here again!
