“Perfect Birthday Treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

We felt very posh coming to Shutters, the place has such a lovely feel to it and all very well maintained. Pool area nice and private and the rooms and beds were gorgeous. Homely but hotel feel to the place

Room Tip: Get a sea view or pool view as opposed to the road

Shutters on the beach is one of those unique spots in the LA area where you can still experience the true Californian lifestyle. Elegant, easy going , high comfort are the word which describe the place. Restaurant bend in perfectly, more are great, view is superb. Take one of the bike to go along the beach.

I stayed here for a business trip. Walking distance to a number of tech startup centers.

Pros:
- Great location - right off the beach and the santa monica running trail
- Great shower - best shower pressure I've seen anywhere
- Lobby drinks has free chips and peanuts
- Free tix to the ferris wheel on the peer.
- Amazing water pressure in the shower. The shower is also large.

Cons:
- pricey
- no hair conditioner in the shower unless you pay additional for the fancy stuff
- my room had a view of the alley which was not ideal but you get what you pay for.

Would stay here again.

Shutters is directly on the beach, the place to stay in Los Angeles. The hotel and rooms have a wonderful feel, lots of attention to detail. The pool is small, but being on the beach it wasn't very important to us. The staff and service were very good, but keep in mind that this is a very expensive hotel, well worth it in my opinion.

I stayed here with a friend for two nights and i couldn't be more satisfied. The service was impeccable and small details like our turn down service made everything just a little more special. The hotel itself could use a bit of an update but was still warm and welcoming. Overall loved the stay.

Pros: The location CANNOT be beat; you're literally right there on the beach. Staff is friendly and rooms are comfortable. Lobby is a nice place to have a drink in.

Cons: Food there seems kind of old-school - everyone has been raving about the restaurants but I was disappointed by the lack of vegetarian and vegan options at The Coast Restaurant. The rooms are very comfortable as noted above but filled with seasidey decor extras that border on corny - a copy of "The Old Man and the Sea" on my bedside table? And I'd be willing to stay a bit further from the beach to save some money.

Bottom line: if you are looking for attentive service, want easy beach access, and are somewhat of a traditionalist "East Coast/NY/New England" kind of person this place will appeal to you and be worth the price.

The restaurant is very professional with great service.
The menu was just right and perfect for a light snack or dinner, with views right onto the beach.
The interior is very coastal and relaxing, I will be going back
