I am a bit obsessed with California Modern style and that is why today’s Hip Hotel Postcard goes to the Shore Hotel, a new oceanfront boutique hotel in Santa Monica, California. This Santa Monica hotel has been on my radar for some time and fits our love of modern style and affordable luxury. This Santa Monica luxury hotel features cutting-edge, environmentally-conscious amenities and a fun vibe that evokes California dreaming.

Why we like this hotel:

The gorgeous rooms have a modern, Southern California beach feel and the decor echoes the deep blue of the Pacific Ocean across the street. Located on Ocean Avenue, Shore Hotel is convenient to Santa Monica restaurants, bars, and attractions, has stunning views of Pacific Ocean, a gorgeous outdoor pool located in the center courtyard and rooms with private balconies. I’m looking forward to our stay there soon! Rates start at $254 per night and Shore Hotel is offering two unique packages for families right now:
