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.

This hotel has a great location on the sea front with great views of the ocean. Very friendly staff and the Ocean View Suite lived up to its billing. Some renovation work going on so check in advance that there is no further work before you book

We spent one night at the Shangri-La hotel to celebrate my wife's birthday. when we arrived, we were greeted with water bottles and champagne glasses. Check in was swift and painless. The room was a bit small but the ocean view compensated for the tight space. The room is overall updated and looks fresh. Outside of the great view the giant tab was pretty nice. shortly after we checked in we got a Champaign bottle complimentary from the hotel with a card wishing my wife happy birthday - it was very unexpected and much appreciated. Overall the staff is very friendly and the hotel is great for a couple getaway weekend. Few Tips: 1) Make sure you book an ocean view room - it totally worth the extra $$ 2) Check out the rooftop bar - it is great even in 45 degrees weather Cons: 1) Valet fee is pretty steep - $50 (considering we stayed there less than 24hrs) Read less

Awesome location, amazing views and really really comfortable room. The hot tub and sun loungers are a nice alternative to the beach, which is literally across the road. Staff very welcoming and friendly. I’d stay again
