Hotel Shangri-LA

Santa Monica, Los Angeles

The hotel

The very essence of the golden age of Hollywood glamour, the Hotel Shangri-La has been welcoming guests since 1939. An Art Deco treasure, sumptuous guest rooms and suites offer iconic views of the ocean or the city and come very well-equipped indeed. When you can tear yourself away, there’s the poolside to relax by – treat yourself to a private cabana and it becomes a real retreat. There are plenty of restaurants on your doorstep but the hotel’s own should not be missed. Featuring classically trained and creative chefs, feast on the freshest local produce, handpicked from the weekly Santa Monica Farmers Market whilst admiring views of the Pacific & Palisades Park. Pre-dinner, take the elevator all the way to the top for drinks at Onyx Rooftop Bar offering world-class sunsets as well as cocktails late evenings. Santa Monica Pier is a 10-minute walk away but should you wish to explore further, the metro is also a 10-minute walk which will connect you to Hollywood, downtown and more quickly and affordably too.

We were in honeymoon, so they gave us a great 6th floor room with a beautiful balcony with ocean view. The hotel facilities are also great. Make sure you spend one night at the rooftop bar. A good place to have some food and drinks. We love our stay.

Hotel location is amazing. Was given complimentary champagne when we checked in. Check in staff was very friendly. Rooms are so so, my wife and I upgraded to “executive suite ocean view”. The view is amazing... size of room is anything but executive. We have a double, maybe queen size bed. Came out by pool and asked the waiter for a drink menu. He handed us a food menu and said “i gave the drink menu to those people, ask them for it when their done.” 4 star hotel? No. 4 star location. Yes #scooterout Read less
