About Hotel Shangri La Santa Monica, Santa Monica

Art Deco glamour across the street from the Pacific Ocean

Coastal location
Hotel Shangri La Santa Monica offers ocean views from nearly every guestroom across from a tourist-packed stretch of the Pacific. You can tan while lying out on the nearby sandy beach or take the kids to ride Santa Monica Pier's iconic Ferris wheel.

Sun-drenched diversions
The pier is a 10-minute stroll down the block, offering diversions such as an old-fashioned carousel ride or concerts during the summer. Third Street Promenade, a shopper's delight with plenty of places to refuel on food and drink, is 2 minutes away on foot.

Hello, gorgeous
This Art Deco hotel gleams in old-fashioned Hollywood glamour and decor. A penthouse-level bar, Suite 700, and an onsite spa are among the celebrity-drawing services, in addition to poolside cocktails, a dining room overlooking the Pacific, and 24-hour room service.

Ocean oasis
Uniquely styled guestrooms include free WiFi and many feature ocean views. Opt for a suite, and you are treated to a gourmet, stainless-steel kitchen and deep soaking tub.

Cease doing business with this hotel.
They care more about money then good service: once you’ve paid they don’t care about your experience. Early morning jack hammers woke us up, as did a maid knocking when we had the “do not disturb” sign hanging from our door. Management was a nightmare to talk to and actually said “we didn’t brake any laws or hotel policies.” Is it me or when you didn’t do anything wrong, you don’t feel the need to remind someone “at least I didn’t break any laws.”

Beautiful Hotel & Great Service
Very nice boutique type of hotel. Everything was top notch besides the bed made noise every time you’d just sit on it, the pillows were paper thin.

Hotel Shangri La Santa Monica, Santa Monica
Just okay
It was a romantic valentine get away for us and I found the hotel old and tired ... the phrase lipstick on a pig came to mind. Even though it had fresh paint, nice touches, very nice staff, comfortable bed, it was still old and in a busy part of the town- it was just okay.

Best stay on the beach
The service and experience was amazing during our stay, I loved the 40’s architecture and old world glamour although some might just consider it old. The views from the room and rooftop bar were phenomenal!

Hotel Shangri La Santa Monica, Santa Monica
A perfect getaway!
We had a fantastic night thanks to the professional and courteous Guest Relations Staff! The champagne greeting, hot and delicious food (definitely order room service) were all appreciated. Best of all, the lovely note that greeted us in our room (it was our 14th anniversary). The suite was clean and spacious. There is a Nespresso machine in the room too and L'Occitane bath products. A big plus. We felt so special. We will return!
