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.

Shutters is undoubtedly in a brilliant location, but I felt it was trading heavily off it's historic reputation and that the hotel is starting to show it's age. While there, one of the two lifts that get guests to the room portion of the hotel was out of service, a bucket

It was like a little home away from home moment. Very lovely and I absolutely felt like I was in Maine. I would recommend to a friend. The little touches, the books and shells chosen for the decor, and the white shelves and customer service... beautiful!

I have stayed at Shutters many times and at all times of the year. The hotel is spectacular with a great vibe, rooms are immaculate and the food is very good. Views are spectacular and the location is hard to beat, right on the ocean and an easy walk to the Pier or the city.

Does this resort have access to the Santa Monica Pier?
It's not "resort" access per say but public access. A very nice, short walk. Approximately 10 minutes-ish!

Good Afternoon GJSophie, For a family of four, with young children, I would recommend booking either two connecting rooms (king - two double beds) or a suite. The difference is that with the two rooms you will have two separate bathrooms. With the suite, there is a separate living rooms and bedroom, and the children would be sleeping on a queen size sofa bed. Some of our suites also have the option to book a connecting room, making it a two bedroom suite. Feel free to contact us at 866-527-6612 for further assistance. Regards, Brett Zapel
