We travel all over the world, and after deciding to take our kids to Hollywood and Santa Monica for a vacation, we chose the Shore Hotel in Santa Monica after reading the wonderful reviews on line. Many times after reading reviews on line the Hotels do not meet up to our expectations, but in this case they exceeded our expectations. We were directly across from the historic Santa Monica Pier, directly adjacent to the famous Ivy Restaurant and within walking distance of most Santa Monica attractions. Lindsy at the front desk hooked us all up with fantastic surfing lessons at the last minute, and our surfing instructor was unbelievable. We ate at Ivy one night that was off the charts, and dined at the hotel restaurant the next night that was equally impressive. Lindsy also recommended the Enterprise Fish Company which was right down the street and was probably the best steak and lobster we've ever had! Can't say enough good things, they should have a 6 star rating!
