Beautiful hotel on the beach. Great place to stay or have brunch for locals.
Great beach side cocktail or brunch spot but also fabulous for events and birthdays. I sometimes wish I didn't live in LA so I'd have a reason to shack up here for the night!
Shutters was the first hotel I ever stayed at in Los Angeles and it left a crazy impression on me. The views are breathtaking, and the brunch is delicious too. Get the pancakes. Always.
Best I've had in a long time! – Went for dinner with a friend and had a great meal. Everything from the appetizer to the main course was excellent. The manager, Ryan Reith was great also. There are windows surrounding the dining room and you can see the Santa Monica Pier with all the pretty lights from every angle. I would highly recommend.
REALLY COOL – Its a really cool hotel.
nice art work. comfy beds. clean. smells good.
they are all arounf good hotel and nice place yo stay
Shutters – Such a cute hotel to stay in. It feels like you're in the Hamptons. Definitely a great little getaway from the hustle and bustle of LA....and it's not that far!
One of the Premiere Wedding Spots! – Shutters is a great spot for a wedding. I've been a wedding photographer for many years and just love the way shutters looks in print, my couples love it and it makes a great setting for a beautiful wedding. I highly recommend shutters and suggest you visit their locations before making a choice.

Awesome – Shutters on the beach is an awesome place to be. The chicks are hot, the service is good, and the food is awesome. I absolutely love this place. definately coming back again. specially since this is where i met my wife Daisy.
Poor standards at Shutters – I was given a $900 giftcard to Shutters&used it to spend the weekend there with my 8 yr old daughter on 6/29. I should have sold the giftcard&stayed somewhere else. I think Shutters gets high ratings because of the lack of options at the beach, not because of its excellent standards of service. If you want to be at the beach, stay somewhere where they are more courteous & professional. Don't stay at Casa Del Mar-it's the sister hotel of Shutters&is equally disappointing. Now, I may have high expectations, but I feel that when you stay at hotels such as Shutters, you want to relax & feel catered to (at $600 a night, I don't feel like that's a lot to ask). But I encountered numerous problems during my stay there. 1st-the valet staff is extremely discourteous. I invited 2 girlfriends to have lunch with me at the hotel. The 1st to arrive, a housewife driving a Honda with a 2 month old infant crying in the back was told to "Go find street parking" because she was "not a guest of the hotel" - when she explained she was visiting a guest they told her it didn't matter. She was unable to find other parking & had to turn around & go home. My 2nd friend to arrive (only 5 minutes later), a model driving a nice Cadillac sports car, was fawned over and welcomed by valet. Then, on the day I checked out, valet did not bring my car for 21 minutes. When they finally did, they didn't bring it to me, they parked it off to the side & ran off with my keys. When I asked why they did that & could I please have my car, the manager yelled at me that they were busy & that I had not been standing there (which was a lie). I was forced to call the front desk and ask them to come outside & sort out the problem. Last, I handed the gift card in upon checkout & was told their "system was down" so I had to leave it there. 2 days later, I saw that the entire amount had been charged to my credit card & none of the gift card had been applied. Management still has not resolved the issue & are impossible!
great local – this place is very lovely and the staff is too. we had a lovely stay. the restaurants are under constrction so it is hard to get a meal
Wedding Bliss – I got married here and it was beautiful. Honestly though, planning the wedding was a little difficult. I felt as though the wedding planner was a bit curt and it made me very uneasy, it was my wedding I was planning, a HUGE deal. I think she should have been a little warmer. But it turned out to be the most wonderful night of my life. If you marry here, get the seafood display for cocktail hour. It will impress the heck out your friends and family. The best part is, you need not decorate, you save a fortune in flowers etc...because the backdrop is the beach. My friends and family still talk about it! It was really my "dream" wedding through and through. Everything I could have ever imagined, including a drunk as hell father of the bride!
Hotel is Beautiful, the Pancakes awesome – Wife and I stayed a at Shutters for a little getaway. Wife wanted a little vacation from the ho-hum. Rooms were nice. but the best are the lemon ricotta pancakes at the resturant downstairs. price was $14 per plate, but worth every penny.
My wife and I would stay again for sure.
Right on the sand, this beach house-style resort offers mile-long views of the coastline. – The Scene
The idea was to replicate the comfort and understated elegance of a 1920s oceanfront resort, without the pretentiousness (hence the lobby's giant, earthy fireplaces and plush slipcover couches). Since opening in 1993, Shutters has proven to be the hotel backbone of what some call the revitalization of Santa Monica. Dozens of first-rate shopping and dining destinations are within walking distance on Main Street and Montana Avenue.
From the shuttered doors to the yellow-striped awnings, the mood here is historic beach-side California. White-paneled walls contrast the mahogany furnishings inside, while deck chairs pepper the outdoor lounging areas. A few museum-quality artworks are displayed, the most recognizable of which are beach-themed lithographs by David Hockney and Roy Lichtenstein. Other amenities include full-service spa, fitness center, business center and swimming pool.
