Probably one of the most romantic weekends I have experienced and it wasn’t necessarily my date. .. Inviting pillow-top beds with Frette linens and Pacific Coast pillows, large bathtubs with shuttered window looking into the bedroom and view. Shower shares one wall with the commode room. Uh, don't drop the soap. Rooms feel very Cape Cod with whitewashed built-in cabinets, wood floors and area rugs. Shutters equips rooms with books, sexy CD’s and DVD’s. The Main Lobby feels like an inviting and comfortable great room. Although we arrived after check-in, our room was not available. No worries, we had a sunset drink on the deck overlooking the beachwalk under heated lamps. Our room was so comfortable we left only for long morning beach walks, explored the 3rd Street Promenade and Sunday Brunch poolside with the NYT’s. We ordered room service both evenings and were quite pleased, choosing to order several appetizers and entrees to share. We ventured downstairs late each evening for a pot of chamomile tea by the fireplace. Our last night the tea was complimentary. Room service was very good, brunch so-so, service inconsistent depending on the area although maid service was superb. Our room overlooked the pool area with a partial (very partial) view; noise from pool area is pretty constant but superior to the parking lot. Although the following month our room at the Fairmont had a spectacular view and was less expensive, we preferred the coziness of Shutters at the Beach. Shortfalls, charge for high speed internet, problem with an entree at brunch was not removed from the bill, expensive. March was beautiful, warm days, no fog, cool nights. Rates fluctuate, be persistent.
