We were allocated a room at the corner of 2 streets (Pico and ???) partially facing the the beach. The traffic noise was very disturbing. There are trucks and buses coming in and out. We can even hear people talking outside. Air condition is old and noisy. Internet speed is slow! For the money you paid for, it is not... More

The service was great when we checked in. The staffs were polite. We were give room with partial ocean view on 3rd floor. The room was clean and nicely presented. However, the sound insulation on the room was very very poor! We could not sleep due to traffic noise and people talking outside. Spa and fitness center was under repair... More

If price is not a concern, Shutters would be my top recommendation for a Santa Monica hotel. My ocean-front ground floor room had a daily rate north of $1,000 after taxes; and I was a bit disappointed when told at check-in that a room on a higher floor was not an option. Once I settled in, my stay was first-class... More

From the drinks to the music, Shutters is just fantastic. The rooms are absolutely spectacular. The deluxe king ocean view is the way to go. The beds are super comfortable, the bathtub is fantastic and the balcony just perfect. Be sure to make advance reservations at the spa, as it fills up with hotel guests and locals. The restaurants are... More

GregoryDay, General Manager at Shutters on the Beach, responded to this review

Dear Jravitch, We too were surprised that it was necessary to close both the spa and pool during your stay. Unfortunately, both issues were independent of one another and neither were renovations, rather both emergency repairs. We take the safety and security of all of our staff and guests seriously and both issues needed to be addressed. While the pool... More

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
