my hotel room was unlike pics. it was old. the closet was not deep enough. could onlny hand 3 garments. the shower was a bathtub which was sooo damgerious i soipped several times. no coffee anywhere i hotel till 9:30 and you had to pay for it. Had to walk 3 long blocks amongst homeless to buy coffee. the car was parked outside and had to pay 25$ a day plus tops every time i left and returned. the valet stole my water thermos. the last day. this place was more then the marriott and many places in Santa monica. the room was ok'd dirty around. not as pictured on your website. the pillows were horrible and elevators small and old. Never again will I use your website.

Room and service were phenomenal but access to amenities was horrible. Pool area closes at 9! Instant coffee in the room. Bleh. Bar upstairs attracts a rowdy and sometimes seedy crowd. Made me worry about our safety at times (and I'm from Chicago!)

Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Overall, our experience was great. The staff was wonderful. My only complaint is that i wish the room had a bigger fridge, a microwave and a room service menu in the room or online. I loved the super deep bathtub. The oceanview was beautiful. I do wish the pool had been open later. The rooftop bar had great drinks, food and atmosphere. The restaurant food and service was great. The Valets were extremely helpful and polite.

The entire staff including Francesca and victor and Manny really everyone made us feel special a d like we were staying with friends and family. We truly hated to leave and will definitely be back. I haven’t had that level of customer service and caring from anyplace in all my years of traveling. Hotel Shangri-la please don’t change a thing!
