I stayed for nine nights in Shutters in February, 2008. The pool, pool terrace, spa, its first tier restaurant were closed, and the place was a mess. There was loud construction noise running from 8 AM until after 6 PM. The hotel should have closed for a period of time, but instead charges full rates and simply places signs up apologizing for the inconvenience as one walks through construction noise and dirt. The hotel gave no advance warning to me that any of this was in process. At this point in time I would not recommend Shutters to any one and I would question any reservations for the future since the hotel owners have engaged in misrepresentation and deception. In comparison, one of my favorite hotels, The Connaught, in London sent me a nice note announcing its closing for restorations.
