Absolutely loved this Hotel. Felt like my own personal beach house! Great food, service, and room! Beautiful views! The room service staff and even the valets were extreme professional and courteous. A mini vacation while in LA for business

It would be very hard to find a more relaxed and pleasant environment that is so exceptionally well run and elegant at the same time - perfect balance - Shutters is clearly the best hotel in the entire Los Angeles area.

We stayed here for the last two nights of our honeymoon and were greeted with a bottle of champagne which was a lovely touch on behalf of the hotel. We also got a room with a view of the pool area and the beach beyond. The room here was small but nicely decorated. Glass doors open between the bedroom and...

Shutters Hotel in Santa Monica lives up to it's name. It is literally right on Santa Monica Beach. Bike paths and walking paths go from outside the hotel cafe onto the sand. The beach is beautifully maintained by the City. It is a 30 minute walk to the other famous beach, Venice Beach. Third Avenue Shopping Mall is two streets...

I have been staying at Shutters for over twenty years. It is my favorite hotel in the whole world. Located right on the beach in Santa Monica, with its grey shingles and white trim, it resembles an East Coast shore home. It is both casual and sophisticated, elegant and inviting. The staff is friendly and attentive, the food is superb....

Nice facility, but I am not certain it is up to par with my expectations. Competing five star hotels that I have experienced are equally comfortable if not more, but cost less. My impression is that Shutters is based off of its location more than other things that it has to offer.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.

“you can ask for an upgrade to ocean view but they have monetized that view so unless they're not full, it might be hard to do.”
