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.
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.
Hotel was great and helpful, also the bed was so comfortable, i had a great night sleep!!
Our next stop Santa Barbara, 4 star hotel, beds were not as comfortable, nor was the room as nice as the
The Hotel itself is in a great location, has a good pool area and loads of potential. Unfortunately the hotel management seems to have distracted by the desire to turn the pool area into a 'hot' spot. The pool staff were rude/unhelpful, the
service unbelievably slow (ie had to wait for an hour for a drink, asked for it 3 times too) and the food was very ordinary once you eventually got it. Management should look after their guests first, local 'celebrities' second. Extremely disappointed.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
If you like a pool scene and music blaring around the hot tub well into the night, this is the spot for you.
It's a beautiful hotel with excellent service. We got a great rate because they are undergoing constuction on thier pool area and their restaurants weren't open. Both the pool and reastaurants looked like they were going to be really nice. You
can't beat the views and location.
