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.

Hotel perfectly situated to visit and stay close to Santa Monica Pier. Not exactly catering for kids as pool is not very kids friendly but staff is fantastic. Have to mention Mariah at reception and Marilyn's service at breakfast. Food leaves a lot to be desired would not eat

I had been told that "this is one of the best hotels in Santa Monica", "I must stay here". My expectations were high. I arrived about 10.00am to a lobby that was cold (from atmosphere) a quite snooty member of staff told me politely that my room wasn't ready and I should come

Dear Sharonfv, Thank you so much for staying with us at the Shore Hotel. Great to hear you enjoyed the room and amenities. And thank you for mentioning the Bell Boys, reception staff and Roberto for their helpfulness. I apologize we were not more hospitable at arrival and your room was not cleaned on your second day. Thank you for your feedback. I will follow up on this to make sure it does not happen again. Often we are sold out the night before and as departure is not until 11am early arrival is not always possible at 10am. And if we allow guests to stay late at no charge rooms will not be ready as we promise by 4pm. Usually the only time a room is not clean as late as 4:15pm is if a guest turned away a Room Attendant that morning or if a Do Not Disturb light was on. We do have staff on duty as late as 10pm if service is needed. We are always working on being as environmentally conscious as possible and thank you for letting us know you noticed our efforts. If you do choose to stay with us again please let me know directly and I can will make sure we do better and make your stay memorable. Sincerely, Tom R.

My husband and I were gifted a room by our son and I was blown away. From the moment we walked in the opulent lobby I was in heaven. Eric made our check in quick and easy, and Brittany made it seem like we were as VIP as it gets. We were met with a fruit and cheese platter and

We only stayed here one night after leaving Palm Springs. The hotel is extremely clean and has a great location. A car rental company is available on site if you don't want to bring a car with you. The staff was very nice.

The balcony doors are pretty heavy duty/ noise cancelling when shut. Maybe take some of the soft foam ear plugs in case but you probably won't have issues regardless of room! Technically garden view would probably have less access to sound (i've stayed facing ocean ave, and also facing 2nd/ true foods kitchen-both busy streets and haven't had issues) :)

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.
