Welcome to the newly-remodeled Shangri-La Hotel, a landmark on Ocean Avenue constructed in 1939 and once used as a naval barracks. Roughly $30 million was spent on the remodel with the goal of restoring the hotel back to its original form, including installing a replica of the original terrazzo floors and bringing back the old elevator floor indicators

It comes as no surprise that those of us lucky enough to live in Santa Monica often become the designated host and tour guide during the holidays. Who can blame our family and friends for wanting to spend their winter vacation time in our sunny beachside city?

Santa Monica Travel & Tourism (SMTT) recognizes that space can become an issue while hosting those cherished guests, no matter how welcome they may be. With this in mind, SMTT is happy to announce the return of its annual Extra Bedroom Program, running through January 17, 2020.

Each year during the Extra Bedroom Program, Santa Monica hotels come together to serve their community by offering Santa Monica residents access to deeply-discounted hotel room rates at 22 properties across Santa Monica’s world-famous hotel collection.

Whether they wish to book a room for visiting friends and family or take advantage of time off with a staycation, residents can secure exclusive discounted hotel rates by simply mentioning the program while making the reservation over the phone, then showing proof of Santa Monica residency (California ID or drivers’ license) at check-in. Please note that rates are subject to availability and blackout dates may apply.

Stop by 2427 Main Street and mention “Extra Bedroom Program” for a discount on creative gift items such as t-shirts, beach balls, notebooks and more for your friends and family, valid through January 17, 2020.
