                        The staff was great, really helpful and friendly, especially Nicholas!

                        Getting woken at 8:00am on vacation, they woke us for room service, but got the wrong room! Major mistake!

                        Location was excellent! The hotel is very close to Santa Monica beach and 3rd st promnard.

                        The hotel is over price, they charged mini bar fee which was I didn't use at all! My room was very small and too simple.:( I will not book the hotel anymore. It's wasting money.

                        I like the location of the hotel

                        the room was very very small and the view was terrible ...

                        Extremely helpful concierge, nice clean rooms, spacious bathrooms, cool art deco styling, great location, fun pool deck

                        A little bit noisy at night (but not horrible), pool deck is open to the public so it got pretty crowded on saturday.

                        The rooms were very nice, modern and comfortable. The pool and lounge looked great, but we couldn't use it(too rainy). The clerks were very helpful.

                        The staff at the restaurant were a bit scattered. My husband said that he got a complimentary tea and was told all guests get one. When I asked for mine, it seemed to be a major problem for the people in the restaurant. There was a lot of attitude. I thought it was unprofessional.

                        All the Art Deco features. Its a beautifully renovated hotel. We booked the Deluxe room because it was a bigger room & couldnt really fault it. The bathroom has a big bath tub in it & the room is full of Art Deco detail. Hotel staff were extremly friendly & helpful. Hotel is right across from the beach therefore great views. If you have time go up to the rooftop bar. Great views.

                        No water provided in the rooms. Internet facilities for people that dont have a laptop arnt that convenient. Internet is only free for the first 15 min & then you need to pay. Only one computer available right in the lobby no no real privacy either, very distracting. The hotel room rates are a little pricy but we enjoyed our stay.

                        Santa Monica is the best place to stay in LA for pleasure, and for business travelers with a little extra time for commute. The Shangri-La is the hippest, best place on the water. We've stayed at Shutters and Casa del Mar - eaten at Viceroy. Shangri La beats them all. authentic updated Art Deco, great size, pool, rooftop bar with view of the Santa Monica pier and beach. No question - the go-to place in LA . The New York Times Travel Section agrees. And this is not paid or sponsored - I am a real person - stayed with my daughter on her school break. Loved it! Anne

                        It was a beautiful hotel with a lot of charm. The stay was luxurious and I felt pampered without being waited on.

                        The pool and hot tub were not open very late at all.

                        Excellent location. Rooms were large and service was prompt.

                        Rooms lacked the basics that I would have expected given the relatively high price - ie there was no coffee/tea making facilities, no ironing facilities inroom and bathroom had no counter space,

                        the hotel was beautifully situated in Santa Monica within walking distance of both the new shopping center and the beach and 5 minutes from the pier . The hotel was very clean and tidy with a good pool, hottub and sunbathing area the only down side was weather with only 4-5 hours sunshine in a 78 hour period

                        no not really room prices were not cheap and could of included some extras in the room even a bottle of water a day or coffee and tea facilities

                        Everything. Above all the atmosphere of the hotel. It is cosy, confortable, elegant, and you feel at home. The pictures at the site do not express how nice are the rooms. We actually stayed for 5 nights and they were delicate and attentive with us.

                        good location, but way too expensive for what it is.
