A property flaunting Streamline Moderne-style architecture and opulent Art Deco-inspired rooms.

Among the multitude of vibrant neighborhoods in Los Angeles, Santa Monica stands out for its magical—if not perpetually packed—beach and relaxed vibe. Since 1939 it’s been home to the gleaming white Hotel Shangri-La, a property flaunting Streamline Moderne-style architecture and opulent Art Deco-inspired rooms. Most of these 70 retreats star Pacific Ocean views, glimpsed from a terrace or wide windows that open out onto the water, but there are other perks inside. Even after a $30 million revamp, the sleek white rooms contain original circa-1930s design elements that mingle with modern touches such as freestanding bathtubs. This vintage aesthetic carries over to the Dining Room, where guests sit in clubby curved chairs and take in Palisades Park views while eating dishes made with Santa Monica Farmers Market produce. The most popular spot for travelers and tourists alike is, of course, the open-air rooftop bar and lounge. The onetime penthouse, Suite 700, is now open to all those who like to drink cocktails fueled by the sounds of DJs and the hypnotic sight of the ocean.
