The Shutters is a special place. The location on the beach. The Architecture. The style. The people. All make for a very charming experience, true California style!! We booked a partial view via Amex Platinum and were pleased to Receive "upgrade upon availability" at check-in which put us into a full Ocean view. Our room was in the "back" building,... More

This cozy and comfortable hotel right on the beach of Santa Monica, is ideal both for tourism and for small business conferences. I have experienced both. Excellent organisation, good food, good service and a location that is second to none. You should stay here for visiting both the cost south of here as well as going north. Easy to reach,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our California roadtrip and I can honestly say, it was my favourite 3 days of the trip. Whilst it is quiter pricey to stay at Shutters, it is worth every penny.

I had high hopes for this hotel...First impression - shabby chic...lobby dated, rugs dirty and old. Charming decor ideas but it just didn't live up to the hype. I felt like I was in a time warp trapped in an older part of New England stuck in a 50s hotel....which, if the hotel was old and historic (it opened in... More

I've stayed at Shutters for years. There isn't one reason I keep coming back- there are many. The location, the accommodations, the service, the overall experience. The staff is always warm and friendly. And the rooms are a perfect juxtaposition of what you would expect LA style to be like with the warmth of Nantucket on the Santa Monica beach.... More

First time here, but I have stayed at other hotels in Santa Monica and LA (Beverly Hills). Perfect location on the beach (no road - just straight on to the beach).

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.
