I traveled to Santa Monica with my wife end of Sep this year. I had to attend a Summit at the nearby Shutters at The Beach Hotel. Our head office (I am assigned to the Asia office) is also based in Santa Monica. We arrived in LA 9/24 and stayed with friends at Irvine. We then moved to Hotel California 9/26 and stayed there for 3 nights. We were hesitant to leave Irvine where we slept comfortably. When we booked online, we knew it was reasonably priced but had concerns about the quality of service and of the hotel. Heading the Asian delegation to this Summit, I had also recommended this hotel to two other delegates from Japan. To our surprise, it was one of the best hotels we stayed in. Great staff namely MARIBEL, JON and STEVE. These are the pillars and assets of the hotel - the staff who love their work. My Japanese delegates enjoyed their stay too (one enjoyed the surfing). Truly a charming iconic hotel in Santa Monica. In fact, on our last day, the producers from Hells Kitchen dropped by the hotel asking if they wanted to be featured for another program as they too felt that this hotel was a charming, quaint hotel that is iconic. I will stay here again next time I travel to Santa Monica. I need not say more about its ideal location to the shops and restaurants. Maribel, Jon and Steve, thanks again for your kind hospitality. You made our trip even more memorable! More power.
