Shutters is a wonderful little oasis in the mist of Santa Monica and its beach. It offers premier accommodations. We love the rooms, but dinner or drinks at sunset are the best part of a Shutters visit. The food in their restaurants is consistently very good. The staff is attentive and warm. We've been guest on three occasions and will... More

The beds are EXCELLENT. I'm going to have to buy a new bed when we get home. The staff is friendly and helpful. Housekeepers are nice and leave it CLEAN. The Lobby is lovely and welcoming. The valet were quick even when it was busy. We had a lovely time.

We arrived at Shutters for dinner by car and arrived at a rather chaotic valet parking but once inside things calmed down and we enjoyed a pleasant drink on the terrace followed by dinner in the Coast restaurant . We ordered a number of starters and mains all of which were freshly prepared ,well presented and very tasty. The service... More

My wife & I had a one night stopover at Shutters at the start of a month around the States & immediately thought 'has to be Shutters' ..and then a nice stroll along the beach to Venice and check out some other old faves..

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Extremely clean rooms. Perfect location to take in the beach or some Hollywood theaters and events. There was a wedding during our stay, but everything was quite by 11:00 p.m.

The hotel would be reasonable if it were one third of the cost. I understand the location is, theoretically "prime" but the rooms are dated, the pool is currently under renovation (i.e. not open at all), the gym TVs don't work, and they charge you for internet. My husband and I were also charged for an entire meal at one... More

Dear Liz, Thank you for joining us on the beach and sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear that your stay did not meet your expectations and I especially understand your frustration with the pool’s necessary structural retrofit. Fortunately, as of yesterday (5/21), the pool is reopened and ready for summer. I do apologize for the last-minute pool closure... More

I absolutely love this hotel; the location is second to none in Santa Monica, and the ocean view rooms are beautiful....well appointed, comfortable, and smell gorgeous! I stayed here 4 nights, and enjoyed until the doorman was incredibly rude to me. I understand it is custom in the US to tip. My intention was to leave a very large tip... More

Shutters on the Beach offers something for everyone. Prime location in Santa Monica - convenient location to many of the restaurants and shopping, as well as, an ocean view. Highly recommend Shutters on the Beach!

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood 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.
