Their roof top bar has breath taking ocean view ! Must visit the time of sunset. Happy hour bar menu is half off also alcohols are 5 dollars! What a deal for the location! Less than 20 dollars you can have a drink and meal and amazing coastal view.

The best spot to hang out at the Hotel Shangri-la during Happy Hour is their outdoor rooftop bar. Take in the Sunsets while sipping on their specialty drinks & munching on inexpensive apps. You'll have the best seat in the house wherever you are & have the most breathtaking views of Santa Monica. You can also sit inside by the cozy fireplace & indoor bar.

Great hotel in a great location! We came here for a spontaneous weekend with the kids and wanted a place in a walking distance from all the main attractions in the area. The staff was super nice and very helpful, they upgraded our room just so we'll have extra room for the kids and we got a room with a great ocean view. The rooms are pretty small and crowded (not sure we could have survived without the upgrade). The hotel has lots of amazing facilities we didn't have the chance to check since there is just so many things to do in the area.

Only came here for brunch because we had a groupon and they had bottomless mimosas. It was just OK. I would rather go to the Huntley hotel instead.

Beautifully renovated, w/ a great location. This hotel has a great rooftop, pool, and restaurant. If you don't stay here its worth visiting just for the pool or rooftop bar.

Kind of a weird hotel, but in a good way. My room appeared to be themed black, and was pretty stark. But I guess that’s a certain style, and it was consistent throughout the hotel. There were parties going on almost every night, but I didn’t attend any. The concierge was very helpful in helping me set up day trips and transportation (The Getty Museum, Hollywood, and more). I liked the hotel for its comfort, staff and restaurant, but next time would stay somewhere a bit quieter.

Hotel Shangri-La is a quirky spot at home where it is. The black and pink theme of the lobby confused me, but the rest of the hotel served up clean art-deco design that fit well with the beachy attitude of the area. My room was very nice and had a 180 degree ocean view (The higher the floor, the better your view will be, so be sure to ask) And I must mention the bathtub, which was massive. I often felt like going out anywhere else and night was a crime because the parties at the hotel were so good! It is a popular hangout for European celebrities and artists, and the crowd that rolls with such people is sure a lot of fun. So yes, this hotel certainly counts as one kind of Shangri-La.
