Santa Monica's Shore Hotel is Open Now, For Sure
While the first weekend open for the new Shore Hotel in Santa Monica was a hot and sunny one, the temp cooled down a bit yesterday when we stopped by to check out the spot.
Still, the chilly weather didn't stop a few guests from hanging out by the street-facing pool (which can only be accessed with a hotel key card btw) and it looked like some sort of corporate event was happening in the lobby. We also spotted a few beach towels hanging over the railing of a room on the top floor as well as some beach chairs in the restaurant space where the Blue Taco restaurant is set to open.
Even though we thought the overall hotel activity looked kinda low-key, the hotel doesn't have any availability until Thursday. Perhaps they are only open to special "hotel testers?"
Either way, if you're interested in spending the night this weekend, rates start at just $228 a night. Oh and the weather is set to be sunny in the mid 70s. Typical!
