We love Shutters for many reasons including its classic decor, beautiful Santa Monica Beach location near the ocean, fun outdoor activities, nearby shopping and great local restaurants. We enjoy walking everywhere and appreciate that we don't have to drive a car to enjoy our stay. The hotel restaurant by the pool is quick and easy, plus the food is good....

Shutters is the perfect place to stay for relaxation and fun in Santa Monica. Two kids and I had fun at the beach, shopping and at the Santa Monica Pier and came back to the hotel which offered comfort and class!

Fantastic location in Santa Monica. Super cool decor in room with great view of pool and ocean. The rooms are small and cramped for the money. Bed is great with super bedding. The hotel could use an update. Carpet in hallways have several stains. The hotel staff was very pleasant. The pool staff and bar staff had attitude. The location...

My fourth time staying at this beautiful property. The location is amazing and the views can be as well.

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.
