Lovely hotel. Perfect for weekend in Santa Monica. Professional and pleasant staff are ready to assist at all times. Bicycles for use at hotel allow touring ease of Venice and Santa Monica piers. Lovely outdoor restaurant deck is great for people watching and lunch.

Shutters is my all time favorite hotel. The vibe, the setting, the service -the Very best! The quality of everything from the towels, to the pool, to the bikes, to the room service is unbeatable. It's expensive but the ultimate treat

I did not stay at the hotel, but love to have breakfast or lunch here when in town. Although on the high end of cost, the staff,environment, and view is worth the visit. You never know what Hollywood celeb may sit at the table next to you. I routinely have the eggs benedict for breakfast and it never fails to...

For a luxury beach front hotel charging Four Seasons and Ritz rates, the hotel is out of its league. The beach front rooms are extremely noisy all night long and beware of the foghorn that blasts every 15 seconds all night long if foggy. The flatbread in Coast was inedible but the breakfast and wine selections good. Staff all terrific....

This hotel has what you're looking for if you want good service and something calm. Great rooms and a lovely place to pop in and have a drink if you aren't staying there. The pool is small but it was quiet.

A beautiful hotel with impeccable service. I loved the location, the lobby bar and the wonderfully accommodating staff. You can walk right out to the boardwalk or into town for additional restaurants and shops.

The staff at Shutters is tops and I had a marvelous time at this iconic hotel on the beach...nothing but good things to report. The room was extremely comfortable and cozy and the staff made me feel just as important as every other guest. Coast restaurant quickly became my favorite coffee and breakfast people-watching spot with a beautiful beach view....

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood 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.
