Historic Hotel in Santa Monica that it is footsteps from the beach. The Hotel has awesome hospitable staff, with one of the best rooftop bars with an amazing view of Santa Monica! Looking forward to coming back!

We stayed here for 3 nights on our way home from NZ & Oz. Our room was relatively spacious, & comfortable with a great bed, and wonderful oval deep bath tub, and great sea view, don't expect a tea tray in the room, this is America. The hotel has great history and a lovely historical feel, it is well cared for and in a great location, many historical features have been retained during the renovations. We would definitely stay here again.

Although a big building, it feels like a boutique hotel. Intimate entrance area probably lends to that the most. Tastefully appointed with original and reproduction pieces/touches from the Art Deco era. Exceptionally positioned on the coast, with full views of the beachfront. Rooms are smaller than some at this price range, but have most amenities (except bar fridge). One of the most amazing tubs I've seen in a long time.

Stayed for a weekend, great location, easy to access the beach & various Santa Monica restaurants, walk to the pier...etc. Nice ocean view room, I wish there was a balcony, but the art deco style of the building made up for it. Great pool, very welcoming staff, would stay there again

This hotel was surprisingly good - excellent. The decor is vintage luxe. The room especially the bed was so comfortable. The very very deep bath was heavenly. Directly across the road from the beach and only 5 minutes walk to the Santa Monica pier. Watching the sunset from the rooftop bar was an added bonus. The staff were so attentive. A little pricey but definitely worth it.

This is a peach of a hotel. Was a little dubious at first but quite lovely. Got a great big corner room, actually a suite with large bathroom and kitchen. With a rooftop bar with great cocktails and just amazing views - you cannot ask for more.

Nicely appointed Art Deco hotel centrally located in Santa Monica. Had a wonderful corner suite ideal for the family, and the staff was extremely helpful and attentive. Walkable to the Santa Monica Pier, great restaurants, and shopping. Would return without question.

WOW what a beautiful art deco hotel. Rooms very clean and standard size big enough for two. We did not have a sea view but the view out the back was ok. The bath was big and deep but could be difficult to get into. The pool area with jacuzzi excellent but bar not always open. If you like to sit in the sun late into the evening then this is not the pool for you the sun moves away about 5ish in the afternoon. We could not get into the rooftop bar because we were not wearing shoes so if you want t... Read more

Great room with great views. Awesome bathroom and top notch service. Perfectly located! We went to LA for memorial day weekend and the concierge and hotel staff were really helpful. The room was quiet and cozy with awesome decor.

The room was spacious, had beautiful views over the bay and enjoyed a shared balcony. The staff were exceptional in making you feel welcome and providing a good service. The pool area was well laid out and provided a relaxing atmosphere. Santa Monica is very convenient for all that LA has to offer.

It's not often we have a really disappointing hotel experience, but it happened on this occasion. We paid c. $500 per night for our room, and we were on the first floor - the corridor was grey concrete, the sort of corridor you would expect in a motel and there seemed to be quite a few parties being held at the hotel so there were quite a lot of noisy people outside our room. The room itself was small, but modern, but nothing special. Our window to outside was just above the sidewalk and road, s... Read more

I have stayed here 4 or 5 times over the past few years, alternating with other properties in SM. I had not returned after a less than satisfactory experience, but decided to give it another try as it was convenient and better priced than Shutters, Casa Del Mar, Fairmont, etc. and I think I had also heard that there had been a management change. Whether or not that is the case, there has been a market improvement on all fronts. I arrived fairly late and was surprised to learn I had been upgrad... Read more

Hotel Shangi La and their staff were amazing. Very accommodating to our needs. The rooftop bar was lovely too with inside and outside areas to sit and beautiful views of the Santa Monica Coast. Our room was a King room and although we had a huge problem with a loud noise coming from their fire hose pump, they happily moved us into another room and to our surprise was a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment with its own lounge and kitchen. It was amazing and were very appreciative that they did thi... Read more

Stayed here for three nights. Great staff (although front desk was disorganized), friendly, attentive. Room was "deluxe King" and was incredibly small. No closet and minimal drawer space. Linens were good and the bed comfortable, with a nice sized bathroom, but no replacement toiletries (for two of us for a four day stay...). Very quiet and nice ocean view. Hallways and stairs were outside, giving the hotel a very South Beach feel, down to a slight grunge factor. The rooftop bar was weird: cramp... Read more

The staff at this hotel are very helpful and friendly from the valet parking to the bell boy and check in team and made you feel at home. The swimming pool area is nice to relax in after a busy day out and about sight seeing and the pool is heated and has a nice jacuzzi. The roof top bar is superb with great views of Santa Monica and makes good cocktails. We stayed in a suite on the 4th floor that looked onto the side road, the room was well appointed with a nice big bathroom and a great powe... Read more

It is a trendy hotel, retro style. Our room was clean and modern. Nice touches with the toiletries and bathrobes. Staff at the hotel were really friendly and obliging. Main problem was the location of our room which was through the reception area which made it incredibly noisy. The rooftop bar has a great view and attracts younger clientele.

Me and my girlfriend had an amazing stay in Santa Monica at Hotel Shangri-La. Location is perfect, just two streets to cross to get to the beach. It is also very central to the shopping streets and good restaurants. We actually changed to this hotel in the last minute from a hotel that was much more to the east in Santa Monica, due to not having to be so dependent of a car. We stayed on the fourth floor and had a view of the side road and also some beach. The hotel was extremely quiet and felt... Read more

I had reservations at the Fairmont down the road but cancelled when I saw there was a SL down the road. I was thoroughly disappointed. The rooms were just ok. Nothing special about this hotel and wouldn't stay here again. The front desk staff was not overly friendly. Bell boys were great!!!

Called in for a few drinks, this was our first visit. Whilst all the staff were very efficient and pleasant we were disappointed with the bar area itself. We expected a bright airy bar but found it to be quite small and dark, could do with updating.

Our's was a memorable, wonderful experience. The staff was exceptional in catering to our needs constantly. I can't say enough about how well we were treated and how great our experience was. We were upgraded to an unbelievable suite without even asking and our 4th of July experience was the best we've ever had. Thank you for making our stay with you one we will cherish.

This hotel is across the street from the beach with great access to shops and restaurants. The rooms were fine but very small and most things needed updating. The views were really nice per the pictures I have attached and the location is without a doubt the major draw for this hotel. The service was nothing to brag about and the rooftop bar is more of a tourist/local hangout vs guest of the hotel. We were able to get to the rooftop bar without a wait but it was crowded with partytypes enjoyin... Read more

Ok. Didn't stay here but only because the hotel did not offer rooms with two beds. I thought it was just a problem with the website, but then I called and was told everything is king, except the 2 bedroom suite. They did offer a king room with a sleeper sofa, but that's not what we had in mind. Too bad. Location sounded great.

We turned up to the Hotel to check in close to 2pm, only to find that the previous guest had not checked out... after waiting for more than an hour, we were finally provided to access to our room. The room stunk of cigarettes, the previous guest had been smoking in the room! After about 24 hours of airing the room out the smell had mostly gone! On our second day, a 'bell boy' entered our room without knocking! swiped his card and walled in (while I was on the toilet with the toilet door open! ve... Read more
