The horseshoe-shaped, eco-friendly Shore Hotel is directly across the street from the ocean, providing guests with unbeatable views in a laid-back environment.
Just steps from some of Santa Monica's top attractions - including the Santa Monica Pier and the Third Street Promenade shops and restaurants - the Shore Hotel offers contemporary beach comfort in a convenient, scenic location.
From the champagne (or sparkling cider) upon check-in, to the modern guest rooms with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and private patios or balconies (some with ocean views), to the 24-hour fitness center, this is a boutique hotel that has understated luxury down.
Built in 2011, the Shore Hotel has 164 rooms and 20 suites.
Ask for an ocean-facing room with a balcony if you want to watch the sunset.
Some of the non-ocean-view rooms surround a lush garden with heat lamps and lounge chairs. It’s also the only pet-friendly part of the hotel.
The guest-only, solar-heated pool sports ocean views and has plenty of deck chairs. There’s also a hot tub.
During the summer, the hotel has Summer Soiree nights that feature an acoustic band.
Amenities include a 24-hour fitness center with an on-site personal trainer. The fitness center’s floor is made from recycled tires and provides guests round-the-clock access to weights, treadmills, bikes and more.
It's also a green/sustainable property, participating in the LEED Gold program, a third-party certification program that has been independently certified.
