My first time staying at Shutters. I paid for a deluxe ocean view room and had to take an elevator to the third floor and walk down two hallways to another set of elevators to get to the upper floors. Not a great set up - there should be transparency when you book an $850/night room that you will have...

wide spread out beaches, lots of shopping and good eating. Ultimate in people watching. The sunset is like witnessing a miracle every single night. 2 miles south is Venice, 3 miles north Malibu 15 minuets inland is Beverly Hills. What more could a girl want.

Visited Shutters for the first time in April 2015 with my family. One of the best luxury Hotels I have ever visited, superb staff, facilities and of course the location to die for! Not cheap but absolute quality and value for money. Spoil yourself and give Shutters a try, go for Ocean View rooms and cherish those views!

We were really looking forward to to lunch at Shutter for the rave reviews but to be honest except for the inexpensive valet parking we were slightly underwhelmed. This was our top hotel choice for our stay but there was no availability. I was expecting the hotel to be a bit more chic and we had so many positive recommendations...

The hotel did not meet our expectations. We were very disappointed. We did not get a good night sleep while staying here. The noise from the delivery trucks and works throughout the night were constantly waking us up. One of the noisiest hotels we have ever stayed in. It was very disappointing to have red algae around the tub in...

We have just arrived back from a week in Shutters, and I have nothing but praise for the place. The hotel itself is beautiful, New England style, and it backs onto the beach (yes there is a path in between as some people have commented on, not sure how that can be perceived as a negative though...). We had a...

Its seaview room will be quite nice, however its street facing rooms may not be worth the price. as this price level service is good and the room is well furnished. within walking distance there are other hotels with a much better pool area.

The bed in this hotel is one of the most comfortable I have slept in at a hotel. This was my second visit and I was looking forward to the bed most of all. The hotel is conveniently located on the beach and they rent bicycles that can be used on the beach, to visit the boardwalk or the third...

This hotel is in a perfect location on the Santa Monica boardwalk, and also close walking distance to many restaurants and shops in Santa Monica. The service was superb and the hotel amenities are top notch.

We stayed 4/6-4/9/15 for part of our spring break beach vacation. The partial ocean view room was beautiful, clean and fun with it's books and games and beach decor. The staff was very courteous and friendly. The pool area was never crowded and we were able to get chairs whenever we needed them. The beach was beautiful and this was...

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.”
