I absolutely love this hotel; the location is second to none in Santa Monica, and the ocean view rooms are beautiful....well appointed, comfortable, and smell gorgeous! I stayed here 4 nights, and enjoyed until the doorman was incredibly rude to me. I understand it is custom in the US to tip. My intention was to leave a very large tip...

Shutters on the Beach offers something for everyone. Prime location in Santa Monica - convenient location to many of the restaurants and shopping, as well as, an ocean view. Highly recommend Shutters on the Beach!

Our view is awful. Sooooo much money to sit on balcony and watch a man fix his car!!!! Booked 3 months ago with Expedia promised an ocean room. Would never trust booking this again. It's too much money for the risk of not being in an ocean room. We could have stayed anywhere. We are very let down. We will...

Nothing to complain about......all perfect and luxe. It is perfect for couples, families, elderly. The Living Room area is very cozy and had great live music, good drinks and fireplaces. The porch extension has a wonderful view. I had the partial ocean view room and really the view was damn nice.

I stayed at Shutters on the Beach again, this time in May. Shutters is my go-to hotel when I am in LA on business. Everything about this hotel is great - service, location, food, the lobby (called the Living Room), the most comfortable beds in the business, everything! And it just got better - finally, free wi fi. I know...

We had a great time entertaining friends at Shutters and Casa Del Mar. The rooms were filled with fun items which really enhanced our experience. The bath products were luxurious and unique. The staff was friendly, attentive and professional. Can't wait to visit again!

Dear Jeanne, Thank you for staying with us on the beach. We are sorry to hear that your rooms did not meet your expectations on this visit. While your reservation was very clear of your desire to be in the beach house, the category that you booked (Deluxe Ocean View) has 21 rooms in it, and only 3 in the...

This hotel has lots of character and the staff were very friendly and polite albeit the service was a bit slow in the restaurants but it is a lovely setting with with a clear view of the white sand and surf. I thought that the hotel was quite expensive but was luxurious.

Beware of this Hotel. I stayed 4 nights. They gave me a US$75 credit because the pool was broken, that was nice. I put all charges under my room, never used credit card directly but to secure the room. At the end I had to pay US$70 in additional expenses. When I got back home I checked my credit card...

Dear acoustesh, Thank you for joining us on the beach. We do apologize for the confusion, however, once the $300 pool credit ($75 times 4 days) takes effect, the charges for your incidentals will reduce to the remaining balance. The charges you refer to are not “charges”, but automated authorizations which are taken to ensure funds are available for incidental...

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.
