Perched on a high bluff, mere steps from the beach, this timeless Santa Monica boutique hotel has undergone a $30 million redesign promising you a stylish haven to see and be seen. A lush courtyard with elevated pool and cabanas encourages mingling and sunning. The gourmet restaurant, The Dining Room, offers first class cuisine and hushed intimacy, and the posh rooftop bar summons the ambiance of a chic private club.

The hotel was in a fantastic location,

The hotel was in a fantastic location, right across from Santa Monica beach and the pier, and on bus routes if you didn't have a car. A short walk to all the shops. A small complex renovated in the Art-deco style. All the staff were friendly, bed was very comfortable. Lovely pool area but being winter was too cold to use. Would be great to have coffee/tea facilities in the room, but seems to be normal for most hotels that we stayed in.

Great Hotel

It was great, the staff was exceptional. The rooms were great, we had a production suite and it was awesome with a great view! On Sat. night the hotel was rowdy and loud, but the staff was very quick to apoligize and make it right :)

Parking, park right behind the hotel at the lot and not valet. It will save you at least $20 plus a day.

Great Hotel

Excellent location. Newly renovated so clean and fresh. Rooms had lovely view of the ocean. Only negative is street noise (buses, trucks)but hotel has attempted to reduce this by noise quieting windows. Would definitely stay again and would highly recommend.

Shangri-La is awesome

My husband and I stayed in Hotel Shangri-La and attended the University of Alabama at Rose bowl. We had a wonderful time at this hotel. Our room had an ocean view with a king size bed with luxury down bedding. The Shangri-La breakfast is awesome. The hotel staff was very nice.
