My wife and I just had a baby a few months ago, and when my mother-in-law came into town, we decided to take advantage and get away for the evening on the Westside (we are Angelinos but live near downtown) and looked up what was recommended here. Been to many Santa Monica hotels for drinks but never stayed over, but given the chance we decided to stay at the Shore, which we're glad we did.
Service was excellent from the beginning. We put in the notes that we were celebrating (getting a good night's sleep!) and they were nice enough to upgrade us to a partial ocean view room in the front part of the hotel which was very appreciated and thoughtful. After doing some research, I decided though not to valet the car and parked it in a city lot which saved us some money. There is a city lot right behind the hotel which allows overnight parking.
Amenities were fantastic and staff took care of all our special requests. Rooms are state of the art and you can tell they take pride in their LEED certification. Would definitely recommend to out-of-towners, or even in-towners looking to get away like ourselves!
