Hotel Shangri-la Santa Monica






The Hotel Shangri-la is hard to miss: The distinctive, sleek white hotel occupies the corner of Arizona Street and Ocean Avenue.

The Hotel Shangri-la has a well-deserved reputation for impeccable service and eco-friendly guest rooms and suites.

It also scores points as home to one of the best poolside scenes in Santa Monica.

And you can't beat the location - this boutique hotel is just steps from the Third Street Promenade and the Santa Monica Pier. And Santa Monica's expansive beaches are just across the street.




An Historic Landmark

The Hotel Shangri-la was built in 1939 and has been owned by the same family since 1984.

Given its status as a historic landmark property, its recent $30 million, of course, did not include structural changes.

Instead, the renovation was more of a significant facelift: one that ultimately refreshed, lifted, and tightened an already deep and robust foundation.

Home to One of Santa Monica's Top Farm-to-Table Restaurants

The hotel's signature restaurant, The Dining Room, serves up California-French cuisine with a uniquely Santa Monica twist: a "farm-to-table" philosophy that results in delectable dishes comprised of fresh ingredients that come directly from the nearby twice-weekly Santa Monica farmer's markets.

Luxurious Guest Rooms with Ocean Views

The hotel has 71 luxuriously-appointed guest rooms and suites. Amenities here include:

  • Ocean views;
  • 50- or 60-inch flat panel televisions;
  • 24-hour room service;
  • iPod docking stations;
  • Free WiFi;
  • Fitness Center.
  • Frette robes;
  • Hypoallergenic rooms;
  • Gilchrist & Soames bath products;
  • Secluded pool and lounge area;

The Hotel's Rooftop Bar is a Hot Spot

Shangri-la Santa Monica is also home to Onyx Santa Monica, a cool rooftop bar with the distinction of being the only rooftop bar in Santa Monica with 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean. It is a favorite among hotel guests and Santa Monica locals alike. If you're lucky enough to get seats around the fire pit, you're set for a stellar night.
