I had a very short stay in this hotel but I absolutely loved avert minute! The attention to detail in the room is impressive. The retro toys, the candle my the bathtub, the beach towels and toiletries - all are there to make you feel in a beach house. The shower was great, the bathroom had a decent size and...

A classic hotel on the beach. Rooms are nice, service is good, and restaurants acceptable. The fact that the hotel is on the beach is its "killer" feature. The hotel provides surfboard so don't hesitate to ask. While I enjoyed my stay, I can't think of anything exceptional about this hotel. Given the price, this was disappointing.

Was recommended to stay here by an LA friend as a great location for arrival by car on Route 101. And she was completely right. From the preppy doorman and car hops to the Cape Cod decor, it is great fun. Our room overlooked the Pacific and the pool, decor was very smart, and our experience was wonderful. The location...

Shutters on the Beach is in the heart of Santa Monica with the Pier and Santa Monica Palisades just a short walk away. The staff are kind and attentive. Rooms are nice. The restaurant that looks out over the beach has lovely ambiance.

lovely food and wine. Brilliant views. Great atmosphere and attentive but not obsequious service. Worth a special trip to Santa Monica. Finish the day off with watching the beautiful sunset from the pier. There was a conference on the day of our visit but this didn't mar the experience.

As my fellow guests states, the grand old lady on the beach is in need of a refurbishment. The position of the hotel is superb, but if they are going to charge good prices and offer nothing more than standard fare and attitude, then position goes out the window. Shutters is a gorgeous hotel and deserves to be staffed by...

Our room was reminiscent of a beach cottage on Cape Cod. It was generally very quiet. Here are my criticisms: The cleaning people cart's are very noisy on the concrete sidewalk. (We were on the ground floor.) They need rubber wheels. Also, the internet was not too reliable and slow. Room service was a little slow too - and pricey....

I don't write reviews frequently, but feel compelled to share our negative experience with this high-end hotel. We stayed there for two nights in September. At first, everything was fine. We settled in, unpacked and went out for dinner. Upon return, we found a large number of ANTS in the room - hundreds. The problem continued into the night. We...

Dear Erik K., Thank you for your feedback. I do apologize for the minor inconvenience with your room and hope you were able to enjoy the new one you were quickly moved to.

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.
