Have stayed here many times back in the day and Shutters still delivers. Beautiful hotel that manages to look exactly as I remember. My default hotel when I'm in LA. Overall service is friendly and great. Pool side beverage service was vaguely inattentive some days - friendly just periodic (maybe that's part of the Schtick). But it remains my favorite... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

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

My family and I enjoyed a relaxing beach escape here. Aesthetically this hotel feels more like a beautifully maintained luxury beach house, than a hotel. We loved the ease of life here. Clean, fresh, relaxed, and very pleasant. Excellent guest service provided, very personal and warm. Our room was beautiful, every detail perfection, including the crisp and plush bedding and...

Very nice property and location. Staff makes the stay. Room was very comfortable. I think for the $ the shower is on the small size side. The carpet in the hall is showing some age. Some nicks here and there. All mild cosmetic stuff that the staff more than makes up for. Food and wine were really good and price... More

Pros: 1) Location - on the crowded beach 2) Near Pier Cons: 1) Way too overpriced 2) Lobby very small 3) Rooms too small for the price 4) In very busy area of Santa Monica 5) Food overpriced I would stay at the Lowes or the Fairmont if you have to stay in the Santa Monica area

We have stayed here many times. It's a stunning beach hotel. Decor is colonial luxury. Breakfast fantastic. Beach restaurant is great for quick evening meal. Haven't tried the formal restaurant. Only one bad experience. We were given a room overlooking the car park near the lift in listening distance of party going on in foyer. They resolved the situation by... More

Shutters can't be beat in terms of location and design (think East Coast vacation home: Nantucket, Cape Cod, etc), that's what you're paying for, and therefore I can't help recommending it. That said, other beach-adjacent hotels are overall better. The service here is mediocre. I stayed there for my honeymoon and received zero special treatment. I asked for a slightly... More

Wow what can I say , we stayed at Shutters as part of our honeymoon to California and we couldn't ask for more. The hotel is stunning and there is a view over the ocean to match. From the minute we arrived to when we sadly checked out our experience was fantastic, the staff were very courteous and efficient and... More

Everyone who has poorly reviewed this hotel on this page is out of their minds! This place is fantastic! You are instantly transported as soon as you walk through the doors, and yes, there are always CARS in Santa Monica, that's just the way it is... Insanely appointed and gorgeous-perfect staff-could not have enjoyed our stay more...:)

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.
