Santa Monica's Shore Hotel to Open in October at $250 a Night
When we last checked in with the new ocean-facing hotel in Santa Monica, The Shore Hotel, it was getting ready for an end of summer opening. That's not quite going to happen anymore but the hotel tells us that it will be accepting guests in October at $250 a night. Considering that most of the hotels along the ocean in SanMon start around $400 a night, the Shore Hotel is definitely a more affordable alternative.
And it's got a lot of cool things in it too like free WiFi, an outdoor pool, two restaurants and a fitness center.
Up in the guestrooms, there's "beach shades" of teal and orange and custom-made Teak wood furniture. The bathrooms will be sporting the peekaboo trend as there are rainshowers with a "one touch privacy screen." (You can get a better idea of that view from the photo below.) And if you're lucky--killer views of the Santa Monica Pier.
Adding to all this, the hotel is a Silver LEED property with a huge focus on sustainability in the common spaces and guest rooms. The hotel describes all their eco-friendly elements:
Lobby chairs are upholstered with 100% pre-consumer recycled polyester. Guest room carpet is manufactured with Eco Solution Q Nylon, which contains a minimum of 25% recycled content. Project Stone's ecoQuartz bath vanity and desktops for the guest rooms contain ecologically safe solvents and adhesives. Shore Hotel will also initiate rigorous green housekeeping policies—reducing guest and staff exposure to potentially hazardous chemical contaminants that adversely impact air quality and occupant well-being.
Are you sure you want to stay at The Shore? We found rooms for October 1 for $271 a night for a "garden view." Ocean view rooms start at $347 a night.
