Shutters on the Beach
Ranked #5 of 36 Hotels in Santa Monica
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Shutters is directly on the beach, the place to stay in Los Angeles. The hotel and rooms have a wonderful feel, lots of attention to detail. The pool is small, but being on the beach it wasn't very important to us. The staff and service were very good, but keep in mind that this is a very expensive hotel, well worth it in my opinion.

I stayed here with a friend for two nights and i couldn't be more satisfied. The service was impeccable and small details like our turn down service made everything just a little more special. The hotel itself could use a bit of an update but was still warm and welcoming. Overall loved the stay.

Pros: The location CANNOT be beat; you're literally right there on the beach. Staff is friendly and rooms are comfortable. Lobby is a nice place to have a drink in.

Cons: Food there seems kind of old-school - everyone has been raving about the restaurants but I was disappointed by the lack of vegetarian and vegan options at The Coast Restaurant. The rooms are very comfortable as noted above but filled with seasidey decor extras that border on corny - a copy of "The Old Man and the Sea" on my bedside table? And I'd be willing to stay a bit further from the beach to save some money.

Bottom line: if you are looking for attentive service, want easy beach access, and are somewhat of a traditionalist "East Coast/NY/New England" kind of person this place will appeal to you and be worth the price.

The restaurant is very professional with great service.
The menu was just right and perfect for a light snack or dinner, with views right onto the beach.
The interior is very coastal and relaxing, I will be going back

The location can't be beat and I appreciated all of the extras, local car service is complementary, bikes available. The lounge bar is nice and not too crowded, nice heat lamps so you can sit outside in the off season. The rooms feel dated, they could definitely use some refreshing. The bathroom has very little counter space and the shower is straight out of the 80s and tiny. The gym is also lacking. We received a good corporate rate so still decent value.

It's very comfortable and the rooms feel like home. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Great location for everything, a few blocks up on Main St we found some great spots for breakfast/lunch. Lots more on Ocean Ave. and vicinity for dinners. If you need a rental car, Midway is just up the street and the staff and valet take care of everything. Even the ChaCha chicken up on the corner is good! It's pricey being in paradise, but it's a good experience.

The rooms at Shutters are very well appointed with hardwood floors and the most comfortable bed you can imagine. From the front desk staff to the waiters, the service was excellent. The breakfast is delicious. It is a very expensive hotel, but it was a pleasure staying there.
