This is a basic hotel with basic service that caters to the "be seen" luncheon crowd and is way overpriced for that they deliver. Oh yeah..what do they deliver? A $1200 per night suite can place you 100 feet from a side road where there are emergency service vehicles with sirens blaring at any time of the day or night....

Dear Lance S, Thank you for your comments, we always appreciate our repeat guests. I am very sorry to hear that you have not enjoyed your stays at the property. During your last stay (2014) I noticed you were in the exact same room category and location and that you were disturbed by the city’s “earth movers” that were working...

Shutters was the last of several tops hotels we stayed at on a special birthday trip to California, and it was the perfect end to our trip in terms of the amazing location, the exceptional service, and the charm of the rooms. We booked a partial ocean view room and were impressed with how much of the ocean we could...

Amazing hotel. Location is prime - on the beach and boardwalk.Next to the pier and near the shops. Rooms are top - most have a great view. Service was great. The rooms are on the small side. The pool area was being renovated so that was too bad. It was loud. they had a complimentary personal car service (a Telsa)....

We stayed at Shutters for 4 days a couple weeks back. The hotel is gorgeous, staff is attentive, and the location is great. The rooms and facilities were all extremely nice and well kept. The food at the hotel was also great. Although it was always busy (be sure to make reservations for all three meals) the food was very...

Our stay was very disappointing. Our room was not ready when we arrived after the posted arrival time. A supervisor was there so it would be just a few minutes. They gave us a drink at the bar in the mean time. Half an hour later they came and said our luggage was in the room, we could go up...

Since this is an older hotel it is in need of renovations. Unfortunately I stayed here for the first time during construction by the pool area. I'm sure it will be nice when completed but it took away from some of the charm. Our room was a bit dated too, although charming and clean. Good thing my husband's company was...

The Shutters is a special place. The location on the beach. The Architecture. The style. The people. All make for a very charming experience, true California style!! We booked a partial view via Amex Platinum and were pleased to Receive "upgrade upon availability" at check-in which put us into a full Ocean view. Our room was in the "back" building,...

This cozy and comfortable hotel right on the beach of Santa Monica, is ideal both for tourism and for small business conferences. I have experienced both. Excellent organisation, good food, good service and a location that is second to none. You should stay here for visiting both the cost south of here as well as going north. Easy to reach,...

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.

“you can ask for an upgrade to ocean view but they have monetized that view so unless they're not full, it might be hard to do.”
