Fabulous 100

Hotel Shangri-La

Overlooking the Pacific since 1939, Hotel Shangri-La is a dramatic beacon of Art Deco beauty, Hollywood allure, and Los Angeles history.

Perched on a high bluff, mere steps from the beach, this timeless Santa Monica boutique hotel has undergone a $30 million redesign – promising you a stylish haven to see and be seen. Each lavish, non-smoking Santa Monica hotel room and suite affords you sweeping ocean views. Our lush courtyard with elevated pool and cabanas encourages mingling and sunning. The gourmet restaurant, the dining room, offers first-class cuisine and hushed intimacy, and our posh, rooftop bar doubles as a glamorous host for exclusive events. Summoning the ambiance of a chic private club, our inspiring accommodation is a stirring embodiment of art, luxury, and architecture.
