Shutters is one of the rare Hotels where you feel as if you at home. And it's a home where everything is good - the lobby and reception area - like a sitting room at home, the best rooms - over the beach - are fantastic, and the restaurants are very good places to be. The access to Santa Monica...

I wouldn't quite call this "fine dining", but it's right on the edge of that. Great food and a really nice covered patio area - just watch out for the birds flying through. We had ravioli with a veal and beef bolognese sauce which was fabulous. Kids had NY strip with fries which was also great! Service was fantastic -...

Excellent hotel - great location - terrific facilities and dining Comfortable room Convenient to LAX, downtown LA and South Beach Very attractive pool area (although a portion of the pool area was closed at 4 pm for private events 2 of the 3 days I stayed at Shutters, which was an annoying inconvenience)

There are some serious flaws with this hotel, but I will begin with its strengths. A fantastic location right on the beach (a short bike ride to Venice beach and the boutiques of Abbot Kinney), a stylised smart 'New England' aesthetic, some stunning rooms with brilliant beds and a great cafe beneath the hotel. We stayed at Shutters as part...

The hotel, located right on the wide beach in Santa Monica, near the famous Ocean Park pier, is a lovely setting for a special occasion. In this instance, a 50th anniversary brunch was held in an oceanside room for about 60 persons. The setting, food, and service were all excellent and highly recommended.

We had expected this to be the highlight of our California road trip - given we were paying €800+ per night and the ratings we had seen before we booked. Ouch! I have never encountered a less motivated and unenthusiastic bunch of staff. The concierge function, in particular, had seemingly no interest whatsoever in helping guests - either pre-arrival or...

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.
