Very disappointing experience to say the least. We were so looking forward to this beautiful hotel on the beach with our family, but were greeted our first morning with multiple Caterpillar trucks on the beach directly in front of our hotel! The heavy equipment worked the entire time we were there. The truly disappointing part is that when we asked...

Dear LangmanD, Thank you for joining us on the beach and sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay. Please understand that we are located on a public beach and thus have no control over the maintenance and work schedule the city implements to improve this public amenity. As for the Jacuzzi, we recently...

Overall service was outstanding. We did not have a single negative experience while there. All of the staff were courteous and always offering assistance but without being overbearing. The Room and all common areas are cozy and warm.

This hotel is very nice. The rooms and beds are comfortable. The location is terrific - right on the beach with a view of the famous pier. It is far enough away from the pier area that noise and crowds are not an issue. Shutters is a very expensive stay. I'm not sure it is worth the price.

We had a nice long 10 day trip along the So. Cal coast. We stayed in various hotels including the L'Auberge Del Mar, the Pavilion in Catalina, the Del Coronado and Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica was the PERFECT way to wind in all down. What a beautiful place... the rooms are so comfortable and, yes, you feel...

We can't rave enough about our stay at Shutters! The hotel was clean, comfortable & welcoming. We loved the restaurants, relaxing on the comfy couches in front of the fireplace in the lobby or on the deck overlooking the water. The pools were relaxing even on a cool day with staff ready to set up heaters if you had a...

We had a wonderful stay at Shutters: reserved an ocean view room that was right over the pool (not noisy in my opinion at all) with a gorgeous view. From the moment you walk into the lobby, you have a world class experience: the hotel is RIGHT ON THE BEACH. It is a Montage type property so not super contemporary:...

I have never been more disappointed in a hotel than Shutters on the Beach. Even though Shutters is a very cool property, located right on the beach within walking distance of the Santa Monica Pier, the service is less than 5 star. Our first morning the maid knocked on our door at 8:30 a.m.; room ($875+ per night.) When we...

Stylish beach hotel with rooms that look like they are right out of an interior design catalogue. Two really nice restaurants, Pico is the more upmarket and had a cracking menu and view. Coast was a nice brasserie with decent food and beers and the waiter, Luis, was our best of our whole trip. It’s near Santa Monica pier and...

Shutters is a wonderful little oasis in the mist of Santa Monica and its beach. It offers premier accommodations. We love the rooms, but dinner or drinks at sunset are the best part of a Shutters visit. The food in their restaurants is consistently very good. The staff is attentive and warm. We've been guest on three occasions and will...

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.
