Santa Monica was the final leg of our USA holiday, so we wanted a nice finish to our month-long stay. Shore Hotel definitely does not disappoint.
The hotel itself is stunning. It's brand new and very, very modern. The lobby is made entirely of glass which was very chic. There is a pool central to the hotel that looked very appealing (even in winter.) The room is also modern, and the bathroom huge and luxurious. Our only complaint and the reason I'm giving four stars was that we had booked a Junior Suite, and the suite we were given was a small single room. There was not much space for four people.
The location is perfect, directly opposite the Pier and beach. We were a short walk to the 3rd Street Promenade, a lovely strip of excellent shops and restaurants. There was a restaurant next to the hotel called "Blue Plate Taco" where we ate a delicious dinner one night. This hotel was expensive, but with the magnificent view of Santa Monica, it's worth it.
