Shore Hotel

Santa Monica, Los Angeles

The hotel

At night, with soft blue lights illuminating its clean lines and imposing lattice canopy, the Shore Hotel sets the stage for a memorable Santa Monica stay. This sleek boutique hotel is committed to an eco-conscious approach to luxurious accommodation. So, while the rooms are minimally elegant, they incorporate sustainably sourced materials wherever possible. The private pool is solar heated, and the friendly, casual Blue Plate Taco restaurant isn’t just the kind of place locals seek out, but uses locally farmed ingredients to make its ceviches, tacos and other modern Mex cuisine. And as downtown Santa Monica is within walking distance, you can do your bit for the environment while getting to know this stylish LA neighbourhood.

I had first booked a stay here in March, just when the COVID-19 pandemic was starting. Although my reservation was non-refundable, I was able to receive a credit for that canceled stay, which I rebooked in May. The hotel is located on Ocean Ave, which overlooks PCH, Santa Monica Beach and the Pacific Ocean from its clifftop locale. To get to the beach, one must go down the road to the Pier (which was still closed during my visit), down a stairway and bridge across PCH, or down another busy road to PCH. During my visit, the beach parking lots were closed, and the beach itself was open only to active pursuits, not to sunbathing or picnicking. Restaurants were open for carryout or delivery only, including Blue Plate Taco on the hotel's property. Almost all the stores at the adjacent Santa Monica Place and Third Street Promenade were also closed. The hotel consists of 2 buildings connected by an indoor bridge. The West U-shaped building houses the lobby, meeting room, business centre, fitness centre and restaurant on the ground floor. The small pool is in the middle of the U. Most of the rooms in this building overlook the pool and ocean (partially or fully). Some face Ocean Ave and the ocean directly. The East building is L-shaped, with 2/3rds of the rooms overlook a nice drought-resistant landscaped courtyard with seating and sunbathing areas and a water feature. They have perhaps a glimpse of the ocean. The remaining rooms face 2nd St, 180 degrees from the ocean. I had booked an "Affordable Rate" which was for a room in the East building. For this rate, the hotel's $30 Destination Fee was waived, which may be why I was not offered a glass of champagne at check-in. My room overlooked 2nd St and Santa Monica Place. It was decent sized, had a large terrace and rainshower with a window looking into the bedroom (there is an electric shade for privacy). I was surprised there was a minibar during the pandemic. I would guess these rooms that overlook 2nd St. are more private than those that overlook the courtyard or pool, where the hotel configuration allows you to look into other rooms. During my stay, several hotel services were not offered due to the pandemic. The pool and fitness centre were closed. There was no valet parking, no bell services and no housekeeping services if you stay for more than one night. The hotel was offering a room service menu where you order through the front desk. I found the front desk often not well-staffed, so calls there would sometimes go unanswered. I called housekeeping requesting another box of tissues that never came. I had to track down a housekeeper in the hall. I was initially charged $75 for checking in before 2pm, but this fee was waived when the room I was assigned turned out not to be ready. Overall a pleasant, relaxing stay. With much of the city still closed, there was not a lot to do besides relax. The hotel is well-situated and withing walking distance to much of what Santa Monica has to offer. Read less

I loved this hotel, Mrs choi took great care of my reservations and was super nice and welcoming. After working 48 days straight (healthcare worker) it was so nice to take a weekend off and spent it at a nice calming hotel. Thank you so much
