We were saving Shutters as a special treat near the end of a long trip. We rather wish that we had saved our money. We can't really see what the hype is about. It went wrong from the start. We had two "superior" rooms that we asked to be interconnecting. The second had two beds. We suspect that this was...

Dear Paul V., First, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We always strive to deliver excellent and personalized service and clearly we fell short to your expectation. The superior rooms are indeed spread throughout the hotel, and I am pleased that you were able to move to rooms that you were more comfortable in. I will be sharing...

Absolutely love this property. Literally on the beach so you can walk to the Pier or the Ocean. The beds are SO comfortable. Service is above and beyond. And the food is so good. (Drinks at the pool are pretty fantastic too.) Always hoping they have availability when I come to LA - definitely my favorite hotel and location.

Stayed at Shutters because my husband heard it was the best hotel in Santa Monica. It isn't the commercial holiday hotel but it is definitely a home from home. The fabulous reception/lounge area with huge sofas and real fire place is immediately welcoming. The balconies are small but we didn't have time to spend out there anyway. It is perfect...

Dear beth t, Thank you so much for the wonderful comments you shared. We are delighted to hear you and your husband had such a lovely stay with us. I agree, it's hard to beat an early morning run along the beach followed by breakfast at Coast. Looking forward to having you come back in October and please let me...

Commanding one of the few oceanfront hotel locations in Los Angeles, Shutters provides a unique experience in Los Angeles. The design is beautiful and refined, verging on mature. The rooms are lovely and has fabulous, thoughtful details such as decks of cards and books to keep you entertained. The pool area looks out onto the ocean - perfect for relaxing...

This hotel has a great location but bad service and lack of attention to details. Tiny balconies, no hooks/racks for towels/ beech wear, not enough shampoos/conditioners and other supplies for everyone. All the shelves in the room are covered with some unnecessary decorations which leave no room for your personal items. It didn't even occur to the housekeeping to bring...

Staid in a premium room immediately facing the boardwalk and sand. It was a riot to sit on the small balcony and watch the people, and one night a wedding right outside our room. Surprisingly quiet at night given how close you are to the foot traffic of the boardwalk. Our room price included things like bike rentals and beach...

Excellent hotel. It was everything we wished for - beautiful rooms, great service, excellent dining experience, wonderful pool and right on the beach with easy access the to the Pier. Loved this hotel and the rooms were so nice yet cozy with great books and décor. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Everything was wonderful!

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.
