Why We Love This Hotel

  • The details of this 1939 Art Deco beauty have been well preserved (including spacious rooms), but everything feels fresh, modern and chic
  • Santa Monica beach is directly across the street
  • Past guests rave about the very friendly, unpretentious staff 
  • The rooftop bar is popular with locals and has panoramic ocean views, happy hour and DJs


Set atop a bluff with stellar views of the Pacific Ocean and located in the center of Santa Monica, Hotel Shangri-La offers a luxurious home away from home. With its Art Deco design, and updated interiors, this boutique hotel offers modernly designed rooms with memories of a historic past. It's located across the street from the beach, so guests can wander over to spend the day basking in the sun or walk over to the iconic Santa Monica Pier.

Most guest rooms feature ocean views as well as luxe amenities such as Frette bathrobes, iPod docking stations, and deep-soaking tubs in marble bathrooms. Rooms are fresh with vibrant colors and modern furnishing and decor. Upgrade to a Terrace suite to enjoy a private balcony. Larger suites feature pull-out sofas and full kitchens.

Spend time in the luxurious courtyard with an elevated pool and cabanas to relax in the shade. Pamper yourself with a massage at the hotel's outdoor heated poolside spa. The hotel's restaurant, The Dining Room, features an intimate space overlooking the ocean and Palisades Park and serves up American cuisine featuring fresh seasonal produce picked straight from the Santa Monica Farmers Market. The rooftop bar, Suite 700, offers panoramic ocean views, a weekly happy hour, and DJs for a lively scene.
