You Can Own the Shangri-La Santa Monica, at Least for a Night
If you've ever dreamed of being a hotelier, you can give it a go at the Hotel Shangri-La in Santa Monica for a night.
Of course, it'll cost you to play Andre Balazs. Specifically, it'll be $30,000 to reserve the entire hotel for one evening.
What you do with the Shangri-La for the night is up to you. Rent it out for up to 200 of your closest friends for a party or go over-the-top to impress your loved one—insane Valentine's Day package alert—to have a romantic rendezvous.
Along with the oceanfront resort's 71 rooms, you'll get to use the 10,000-square-foot pool deck with its bar and cabanas; the rooftop lounge; the hotel restaurant (though food and drinky-drinks aren't included); and courtyard. But the best part is that you can reserve the swankiest room all for yourself. The offer starts on February 1, so if you do want it for a V-Day getaway, get your money together asap.
