Beautiful location right on Santa Monica beach. The resort has a Hamptons, New England feel, homely furnished has a wintery, beach house feel, heavy & dark in the lobby area. The rooms are light & bright, but heavy cluttered New England styling, which feels warm & homely, but it feels like I'm staying in the guest room of an old...

Having travelled extensively with family and business for more than 30 years in Europe, US and ASIAPAC we have visited Shutters several times when travelling in LA. There is an elegance at Shutters which is relaxed yet refined. The location is fantastic, the decor is perfectly aligned to the beach location (albeit the showers and sofa beds need an upgrade)...

This is a great place to stay in LA/Santa Monica. You can't beat the location and this hotel's terrific service. Even a little drizzly weather didn't dampen our pre-New Year's experience at Shutters in December.

I first saw this hotel when staying elsewhere a few years back!! It certainly delivered... love love love it!! The rooms are styled beautifully with books and curios- very Hampton style and the Living Room lobby bar is just divine! Step right out the front doors to the beach and all the fab craziness that is Santa Monica

Small space. Room attendant leaves only one bar of soap and set of shower amenities to split between sink,shower, and bath tub. Staff pleasantly supplied an extra bar of soap and shower gel for the shower and tub when asked, however, these partially used items were promptly removed the next day and not replaced . This " request and resupply...

We stayed at Shutters Beach for 4 days during Christmas Holidays. We found the staff inefficient and room facilities very poor for the premium price they are charging. Upon arrival, we asked to change our room and reception staff couldn't be less interested. They told us that they would call us back 2 days in a row and by the...

Dear nazerb2017, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We take guest service and satisfaction seriously, and we share your disappointment that our service did not meet your expectations. We set incredibly high service standards and we certainly fell short of ours in this instance. Our restaurant and lobby area is quite popular with locals and tourists...

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.
