Evoking the form of a grand ocean liner and the very essence of the Golden Age of Hollywood, the Hotel Shangri-La has been welcoming guests since 1939. A landmark and architectural gem in the Streamline Moderne style boasts Art Deco guestrooms, and suites offer iconic views of the ocean or the city with a lush life experience that is anything but ordinary. With membership in the Small Luxury Hotels of the World group, the 70 rooms and suites are air conditioned, some with a balcony, and feature satellite television with pay-per-view films, a telephone, complimentary Wi-Fi, an iPod docking station, electronic safe, bathrobes, slippers, a hairdryer, laundry/dry cleaning service, an iron and board, and 24-hour private dining. The Shangri-La Dining Room features a feast with the freshest local produce for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and panoramic ocean views. Relax poolside or treat yourself to a private cabana, hot tub, and spa along with a bar and dining service in a private outside courtyard. Inside, the fitness center never closes. Suite 700 features the only indoor/outdoor rooftop bar in Santa Monica with 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean. Life can be perfect because Hotel Shangri-La has thought of it all.
