Shutters really does a beautiful job in so many ways. But frankly, the rooms are small and not great storage space for belonging. They look great- super attractive but wish I just had more space. Loved the local car service too. As for my value for money rating, room size drove that answer. Bed was dreamy. Good linens and pillows.

I stayed here a few days during a business trip. I must say I like to choose leisure hotels even if I am travelling for work because it allows me to mingle with a more relax crowd and make me forget I am there for business. This hotel is the perfect place to forget about everything. You just need to...

Travelling with the pound is an expensive treat these days but we have to get used to it. I travel a fair bit and don't mind paying when the hotel delivers. I was looking forward to a long weekend at the Shutters and while the attitude and service of the staff was top notch I was quite put off by...

Quaint property right on the beach. Excellent rooms and extremely comfortable beds. Get a room with a full ocean view if possible. Wonderful room service and fabulous bathrooms. Flat screen TVs and coffee makers in the room.

The Hotel is SUPER cute. Splurge and get a partial or ocean view, its worth it. Location is great for walking to dinner and shops. Coast Happy Hour is a MUST. The Pool Has an amazing view of the ocean. Everyone at the hotel was very nice and accommodating. Can't wait to return!

I've stayed at Shutters several times since the first month it opens. It never disappoints. This was a birthday trip and we booked an ocean front king. It was delightful, I even used the tiny balcony for my tradition of a Champagne and caviar breakfast (they did manage to lose the Russian caviar we brought chilled, but they eventually found...

I love Coast! No question their quality of food is beyond my "high" expectations every time I visit Santa Monica which is quite often from NorCal. The lobster roll sandwich coupled with kale salad is a surprise treat!!!!! The staff is consistent with GREAT customer service, knowledge, and menu expertise is flattering.

We went to brunch at One Pico. The prices look high at first, but the portions were big and the favors were to die for. I had a fritta with mushrooms that was excellent. She had the catch of the day which was grilled to perfection. We split a lobster crab cake entree. Finished with a specialty tea and a...

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.
