The hotel is in a fantastic location, is luxurious but comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room felt a bit like I was staying in someones home rather than a large hotel which I loved. I was only there for a night and would like to have stayed longer. The hotel was quiet, the bed was extremely... More

Shutters on the beach was lovely, staff were friendly and welcoming, even though it was a busy time with some A listers staying for the Oscars, the food was very good and the rooms were clean and bright and homely, the beds were a little high to get in to but well worth the trouble as they were extremely comfortable,...

We arrived early and had an unfortunately long wait for our room to be ready, but once we eventually got in, room 533 was beautiful. The high beds with plush mattresses are heaven! We had an ocean view and pool view and it was just lovely. Everyone at the front desk was friendly and accommodating, valet service excellent. We will... More

We've just returned from a wonderful five nights at Shutters - an experience we will definitely repeat and worth the 10+ hour flight! We loved our room (partial ocean view) with its sumptuous, high bed, large jacuzzi bath and high quality coffee making facilities. All furnished with homely touches. The hotel itself has a colonial feel and is luxuriously comfortable.... More

Best room set up with high beds, great décor, open bathroom with ability to open up the shutters to create a larger less closed in feel. Hot tub by the pool could use a tune up for higher jets. Great price compared to neighboring Loews. Small hotel feel with all the amenities.

This hotel I am told is in the top 10 of the world - you would not know it. I am not sure this hotel is ready for a solo woman guest as their attitude of indifference towards me was insulting and unsettling. I would sit in their beautiful lobby listening to jazz and wait up to 45 minutes for... More

This hotel has some great style and at the other end of the scale none at all ! A bit of a conundrum . The hotel looks gorgeous has some very special works of art and yet at the same. Time has no class at all ! Quite strange , nice location however but needs standards increased!

I enjoyed a two-night stay at Shutters. Staying at Shutters, you kind of feel as if you are a guest at someone's ocean-side weekend or summer cottage. This is particularly so in the lobby, with its dim lighting, Pottery Barn-style couches, furnishings, artwork and fireplaces. The same feel carries over to the guestroom, which felt straight out of a catalog.... More
