I would recommend this hotel to anyone planning a business trip. Paulina was phenomenal with helping me plan for a group of 10. You can't beat the location, the rooms were modern and clean and the service was exceptional. Great stay!!

We knew the out-of-towners would love the hotel and location, but we were also able to hold meetings with onsite catering that proved to be a great call.

The hotel was TOPS! Ruben, greeted me at the door so politely to assist my friend and I with our bags. The lobby desk staff greeted us with champagne upon check in and cookies to ease us into our relaxing stay at the Shore. The modern posh boutique feel of the hotel had striking colors and clean lines. Staff Tony...

Good location next to Santa Monica pier. Nothing wrong with the hotel. Clean, pretty, comfortable rooms, excellent service. Valet parking is very efficient. It's quite expensive but you are paying for the location.

Great service from all these people. They are so friendly and took great care of us each and every time we saw them. They really helped to make our stay enjoyable. We wish them all the best! The location of the hotel is great. Across the street from the Pier and surrounded by restaurants and shopping.

This hotel is in a great location. We splurged for ocean view and it was great. The main floors that were tile were filthy though. The rooms were clean but the elevators and common areas were grungy. The rooms are a bit dim for my liking. Over all decent hotel but not 5 star.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
