Hotel Shangri-La has been welcoming visitors since 1939, and has a distinctly retro aesthetic. Ocean liner-inspired architecture and Art Deco design work alongside curved lines and monochrome furniture, creating a look which is reminiscent of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Plus, with a great location near Santa Monica Pier, this glamorous hotel benefits from beach views. And it’s just a 20-minute drive from Los Angeles International Airport – so you can start your holiday in no time.
Everything within Shangri-La has been designed to maximise relaxation and wellbeing. Its heated outdoor pool is modelled after the RMS Queen Mary’s pool deck, with striped sun loungers and private cabanas – ideal for relaxing when the sun is at its peak. The indoor and outdoor bars have vintage vibes and comfortable seating that’s perfect for settling in for the night. If you like to keep fit, check out the 24-hour fitness centre where there are free weights, cardio equipment and all the latest fitness technology.
Santa Monica Pier is just a 10-minute walk from Hotel Shangri-La at the Ocean. You can stroll to the beach to ride on the historic carousel, visit the amusement park and spend some time at Santa Monica Pier Aquarium. Culture-lovers should visit the Getty Center, which is a 15-minute drive away, for a world-class collection of European and American artwork. Or a half-hour drive takes you to Universal Studios Hollywood – the perfect family day out.
Featuring Hollywood elegance and Art Deco design, Onyx Rooftop Lounge serves up curated small plates and a range of speciality cocktails.
In this classically decorated restaurant, you can dine on international cuisine prepared from locally sourced ingredients.
Echoing the rest of the hotel’s decor, the rooms at Shangri-La have a nautical twist and have been designed to emulate a first-class ocean liner feel. The neutral base is brought to life by bright splashes of colour, elegant monochrome feature walls and Thirties-inspired furniture.
