We found ourselves unexpectedly in Santa Monica and saw "The Shore Hotel" was #1 on tripadvisor. When I called to make a reservation I was greeted with a friendly voice at the hotel's front desk, not a reservation center with no personality or knowledge of the area. Jim greetedus at the front desk giving us an upgrade rather then making us wait for a room to be cleaned. The room was oceanfront and a real treat coming from New Mexico. Our stay was relaxing and enjoyable. All the staff we came in contact with were helpful and very accommodating. Jim gets 10 gold stars for his service, pro-activeness and graciousness.
