On our last night in California, after a two week Pacific highway drive from San Fran, we had dinner at Shutters. The staff made us very welcome, and we were seated by a window looking out over the beach. The food and wine was exceptional, as we watched the sunset over Santa Monica pier. Perfect end to a great trip.

I've been staying at Shutters for years. It is easily my favorite hotel. Great staff. Comfortable rooms. Fantastic location. I always feel welcome and well taken care of with every visit. It's truly become a home away from home for a weary business traveler.

We had a great trip to Shutters. The rooms are beach chic and super comfy. The pool and lounge deck set upstairs are secluded and cool. The lobby lounge is spacious and perfect for a drink, light dining or listening to music. The beach is right outside and the casual and formal dining are both delicious.

I was in southern California for work and flew my wife out at the end of the week to meet for a relaxing stay at the Shutters. The stay got off to a bit of a rocky start. I booked the hotel through American Express and part of the package is a potential "early" check in. We called to confirm...

The best hotel in Santa Monica by far, and it's right on the beach. This hotel stands apart from others around the area because it feels like you're not even staying in a hotel. Rather, it feels more like you're staying in your private little beach house. The shutters add a gorgeous touch, and they have THE MOST COMFORTABLE BEDS!...

Dear Christine O., Thank you so much for your wonderful review about Shutters on the Beach. I love the way you describe our hotel as a "private beach house" and how sleeping on our beds is like "floating on a cloud". We truly have a spectacular location and we are so glad you enjoyed it.

This was our second stay at Shutters, and unfortunately we were somewhat disappointed this time round. The service levels were somewhat inconsistant, and we expect better for the price. Compared to other hotels of a similar level that we stayed at on our trip, the level of attention to detail could have been better. It really has the potential to...

Stayed here as part of a two centre holiday. Rooms are small but well appointed and the beds are so comfortable. Our view was of the road which was not brilliant and could be rather noisy. Coast restaurant was great. The servers, especially Jean and James were great, very friendly and willing to help. The lounge area was very 50's...

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. This location is perfect. The staff is incredible. I was upgraded to an ocean front suite and slept with my balcony door open every night. The sound of the Pacific made for an excellent night of sleep. In the evenings I walked out to catch the sunset. The room service...

It has just taken me 3 minutes to load this page while I'm using this hotel's "wifi". It takes about 5 minutes to send out an email with NO attachments. For such an expensive hotel, their wifi speed is just downright embarrassing. If you want "faster" speed, you would have to pay $15 per day. Seriously?? The IT department's excuse...

This is the second time I stayed at this lovely place. It is overpriced for sure but I chose for the quiet elegance and beachfront location. I love that I can walk right out to the boardwalk and stroll up and down the beach area. Too bad they make you pay for bikes! The beds are Incredibly comfortable! As others...

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.
