Great modern hotel across road from Santa Monica beach and pier. Well appointed rooms, a little on the small size, but with balcony with lovely views of the pier. Stayed here with 2 young children and double room was smallish but fine for us. Hotel is spotlessly clean and always smelt fresh. Outdoor pool and spa were great after a...

We booked this hotel at the last minute after a change of plans for our last night in the US. The hotel is well located with views over the Santa Monica Pier and the foreshore (we had an ocean view room). The bed is comfortable and the water pressure in the shower good but otherwise the room is quite basic....

Great hotel right across the street from the beach and Santa Monica Pier. Came for a business trip and stayed two nights. I ordered room service several times and Gabriela did a great job! Would recommend it.

Raul took care of my colleague and I once again! Can't wait for the full bar to be opened in a few months. I also needed assistance with a sprained ankle and Tom was very helpful getting me a bag of ice. I've never had a negative experience here! From the complimentary champagne at check in to the service you...

Really solid choice in a prime Santa Monica location across from the ocean. LEED certified with contemporary designs. Rooms are comfortable but wish there were more choices for pillows on the bed. All four were the same and not to my liking. Know that is personal, however, variety would make it even better. Had nice breakfast in the hotel where...

We stayed at this hotel from 2nd-5th September, and absolutely loved it. Having just departed the Lowes in Hollywood for a more chilled out weekend down at the beach, we had high hopes for the hotel we would spend our last few days in California at. From the minute we walked in, we knew we were going to love this...

I stay at The Shore hotel every time I come to visit Santa Monica for work. The hotel is very modern and comfortable, excellent location near the beach and walkable to many restaurants. The staff here are very friendly and take good care of me here. My housekeeping room attendant is Rosangel Gomez, and she did a wonderful job as...

We enjoyed the location and that the hotel was new. I'm not sure why there are so many 5 star reviews on this hotel? We did pick this hotel because of that but we thought the experience not worth the price. This is not a relaxing hotel, in design or feel of the place. And they nickel and dime you...

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.
