Santa Monica has a long standing reputation as one of the world’s best beach cities, so the Shore Hotel, which is located just steps from the world famous Santa Monica Pier and directly faces the waterfront, is a real favourite of ours. The Shore Hotel blends coastal California style with earth-friendly sustainability and provides one of the most stunning views over the beach in Santa Monica. These landscapes are shared throughout the hotel, with every room featuring a private balcony or patio overlooking the water. Leaving the sliding doors open, you will find the calm sea breeze waft inside, bringing a rustic charm to the chic and bright rooms, which feature flat-screen TVs, a fully stocked mini bar and coffee maker. Service is key at the Shore Hotel; when you step inside the bright and colourful lobby for the first time, you will find yourself greeted with a complimentary welcome drink, whilst a large outdoor pool, hot tub and 24 hour gym are also completely at your disposal.
