This hotel is one of the jewels in the area. It is centrally located and the beach boardwalk is beautiful. The room layout is a smart way to maximize a small room with book cases and efficient use of space. Parking is available for guest which is close to the hotel and the pool is elevated and a nice break... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2016

The design of this hotel is amazing (not surprising since Michael Smith designed the interiors). It is light, airy and Californian. Interestingly, it is in a very tight location, which makes you have to walk in strange ways to get to your room. I have walked down the wrong hallway many times here. The rooms are small, but wonderfully appointed.... More

Just spent two nights in this hotel. Let me be clear - it is fine, it's more than fine. It's well maintained and the staff is very friendly and eager to help. However this is NOT a luxury hotel. Nothing about it is luxurious or decadent. We were debating about this hotel or the bel air or peninsula which we've... More

Room was beautiful, location slightly disappointing as I could not sleep with windows open due to very loud noise from an aircondition machine opposite. The hotel is nice, but not worth the price I find. 1400 USD per night, you'd expect perfection.

Great room with wonderful amenities. Close to many attractions and restaurants. Nice pool, biking and running. Gorgeous view of the ocean. Walk to Venice and Santa Monica pier. Nice lounge area. Good for families. Look forward to a return trip.

Our four day stay tab Shutters came at the end of a trip down the West Coast and it was the highlight of our travels. Lovely hotel, efficient, courteous and relaxed, in a unique beachside location. We will be back.

The hotel was great. The rooms were very nicely furnished and had incredible views of santa monica beach and its sunsets. Staff was always obliging and the rest of the hotels facilities were good. However, in my opinion, it is a little too expensive for what they offer.

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.
