This is an extremely nice hotel is the most popular and alive part of Santa Monica. Of all the hotels across from the ocean this is by far the nicest and possibly newest hotel on the avenue. As an LA local this is my ideal location, I love being extremely close to everything and being able to walk to everything...

Our family recently stayed for 2 nights at the Shore Hotel and we loved it! From the moment we walked in, we were impressed by its chic design. Check in was a breeze - the complimentary champagne and sparkling juice for the kids were a hit! We chose an ocean-view room...it was spectacular! I didn't want to leave the room...

I recently stayed here on a weekend trip and the hotel was absolutely beautiful. The staff was very friendly and the room was clean and nice. The view and the balcony were the best part to me. It's definitely worth the extra money to get a room with a view of the ocean at this hotel. Getting coffee in the...

We stayed here last year at the end of our family holiday to the states. It was very chilled and a lovely hotel. Great location on the water. Staff were lovely. We didn't eat at their resturants as there are so many places to eat in Santa Monica. The rooms and pools are small but I'm not sure if that's...

My 10 year old daughter and I were about to check into The Shore (a block away), when we were part of a terrible car crash. Thankfully, we were not injured. I knew I didn't want my daughter to witness people getting loaded into ambulances, etc. In a panic, I called The Shore and they came and picked up my...

The Shore Hotel in Santa Monica is not only a place to stay, it is a destination. The hotel's modern decor is hip and cheerful. Rooms are small but efficient and comfortable. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Guests are even offered a glass of champagne upon arrival! While very family friendly, I also found the hotel grown up...

It was our 2nd visit to the hotel and it was as enjoyable if not better than the 1st visit. Staff were very helpful and the location with a sea view was superb. The pool is lovely and the fitness centre has everything you need and is immaculate. The Blue Taco wasn't open on our 1st visit but we visited...

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.
