Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.

Nice hotel and nice location only let down was the room description. Paid for two bed ocean view room only to find it facing the pool with no view of the ocean. Premium ocean view actually face the ocean where ocean view only give you a small glimpse of the ocean if you're lucky

Dear lisaanne08, Thank you for contacting Shore Hotel! Although we do not guarantee early check-in, we can definitely add a request to your reservation for an early check-in. Depending on the availability from the night before we can then be able to check you in early. The only way to guarantee an early check-in would be to book the night before to ensure there will be a room ready by your arrival. Please contact Shore Hotel at (310) 458-1515 and ask to speak to Roberto so that I can add your early check-in request. Warmest Regards, Roberto G.

Dear boothyrebecca15, There are a number of city tours that are fun and easy ways to familiarize yourself with the city. LA is a very large city so tours start at 2 ½ to 4 hours and go longer from there depending on how much you’d like to see. Tours prices start out at $49 per person for a self-guided Hop On Hop Off tour and go up to $595 per person for a Helicopter tour. For a cost example, Surf City Tours 5 ½ hour Beverly Hills/Hollywood tour is $85 per person. You could also opt for the shorter hour Movie Stars Homes tour at $55 a person, so prices vary. The TMZ celebrity gossip tour might be fun if you have teens. Please contact Shore Hotel at (310) 458-1515 and ask to speak to the concierge and Mika will be able to assist you! Warmest Regards, Roberto G.
