Good 6.0
Comfortable, Great Location but outdated
Very old hotel that lacks updates/renovations needed to stay relevant in 2019. For the price you pay I would recommend booking a different hotel on Ocean Drive. Not what you would expect when you hear the name 'Shangri La' and the luxury hotel group it stands for.

Older hotel with great staff
Holel was a little old and tired - rooms are small and elevators are slow, but staff are welcoming and very nice.
Richard, caTrip with friends
Exceptional 10.0
Highly recommend
The Shangri La is a wonderful hotel in a great location. The staff were ultra friendly and the hotel was just a couple minutes from the 3rd street promenade and beaches, and is only 20 minutes from Rodeo Drive and other like to see attraction.
Shawn, caFamily trip
Good 6.0
The service at the hotel was amazing. Every staff memeber we interacted with was so nice, helpful and friendly. The lobby is nice the pool is very nice and the location was perfect for Santa Monica. The only issue we had is the rooms are small and they are abit run down and old. We did also find a few random ants in the room. Being an old building it is also very loud you can hear everything around you. From people in the next room to the street traffic to people walking around at night because the hallways are outdoor. We heard lots of banging nosies in the early morning and the place is not even under construction.
