I live in LA and have had the occasion to stay at Shutters for meetings, events or when work is being done on my house. I enjoy the hotel. The rooms are definitely on the small side but very nicely appointed with chic whimsical touches -bothe very cool and homey - i.e. Cosabella thongs available for purchase in the bathroom and books in the room. The pool here is very tight. When the hotel is busy I find it a bit claustrophobic and go for walks on the beach to enjoy the coastline instead of hanging out at the pool. The spa is good but in a basementy sort of location and also very small. The hotel is well- located for shopping and outside dining. It is nice to have Casa Del Mar next door which has a great lobby scene. Shutters is hit or miss but sometimes has a great lobby scene as well...it's definitely quieter than CDM these days. There is an adorable gift shop with well selected merchandise. The only thing I would advise people is that this is really an urban hotel on the beach. It does not have a true resorty
feel. That said, it's a fun place to go for a weekend.
