Positive Reviews


Take a stroll.

The hotel is a short walk from the famous Santa Monica pier where you can play some amusement games or have some fun on the rides including the iconic Ferris wheel. There are also many dining options available, and the area is great for walking around acc


A sunset to remember.

Guests say the hotel is in an ideal location for catching the sun set over the Pacific Ocean. The rooftop bar allows you to enjoy an evening beverage and witness the beauty of this event daily.


Staff excels in service.

The staff at the hotel goes above and beyond the call of duty according guests. Reception is very friendly and welcoming while all the employees value customer service and making sure your requests are fulfilled in a prompt manner.

Negative Reviews


Slow surfing.

While the surfing at nearby Santa Monica Beach may be good, surfing the internet using the hotel’s Wi-Fi is slow. Guests say the speed was unbearable at times and the Wi-Fi signal dies in certain areas of the property.


Gym is an afterthought.

The hotel’s fitness centre is located in the basement and offers a limited selection of equipment for you to use. Guests point out that there was enough stuff to get a workout in, but you would hope something a little better at a luxury hotel.


Don’t get confused.

The Hotel Shangri-La is not affiliated with the Shangri-La brand you might be familiar with. Guests note the name can be a bit confusing and the hotel does not do enough to distinguish itself from the property's more famous namesake.
