Designer Michael Smith has imbued the guest rooms at this cult Santa Monica stay with worldly touches, from John Robshaw comforters to Tibetan rugs. The decadent marble bathrooms sport whirlpool tubs and TVs, and each room has a balcony from which to admire the ocean. Step out of your chic cocoon and you’ll have the chance to spot starlets having low key lunches at One Pico, the market-driven restaurant with a cozy fireplace and blue-chip views. Spa aficionados, meanwhile, will be in heaven at ONE, where bespoke massages and high-tech facials are the order of the day.
In the Area
Santa Monica’s Montana Avenue does double duty as a prime people watching destination and a place to give your credit card a workout. Don’t miss boutiques like Pretty Ballerinas, which does a brisk business in chic ballet flats; French Lessons, where you can stock up on wares from Diane Von Furstenberg and Alice & Olivia; and Stacia, selling chic knitwear made from sustainable fibers like bamboo. Recover from the retail binge at century-old landmark the Santa Monica Pier, with its nostalgic dining, live entertainment, and famous Ferris Wheel.
How to Get There
Being in LA area for work and than staying on the beach of Santa Monica is heaven on earth.
A top location almost right on the pier of Santa Monica. Swimming pool area is convenient in the sun but ends up only a sunbath area.
We didn’t find the menu of the Italian signature restaurant very interesting. And we were simply disappointed with the seafood tower of the beach restaurant.
But the lounge is simply wonderful, almost your home place and serves daily a great late afternoon mini buffet and a nice menu to choose from.
Nice gym, with modern equipment. And adequate nice rooms, not too big but with beautiful high beds.
Decorum is wonderfull. Family touch!
But you stay here to step out of the hotel right on the beach!!! Can’t be beaten
My family and I traveled from Boston for our So. Cal vacation. We stayed at the Shutters on a reccomedation from a friend. Randy and his entire staf couldn't have been more welcoming from the time we arrived until the time we left. First class all the way. Highly recommend.

The hotel layout is wonky, rooms need a bit of updating and need some better sound proofing from outside noise. Food was bad in the upstairs and downstairs dining (ate there 3 times) but the catering was pretty good.
Amazing setting overlooking the beach. The seafood platter at Hotel restaurant called Coast was gorgeous and the cakes are legendary . This hotel is very well maintained and furnished and has an air of sophistication everywhere . Definitely would recommend for a stay in Santa Monica. Very chic.
From the concierge assistance prior to our arrival to the amazing 5 days, everything about shutters was above our expectations. The rooms were beautiful and the service from cleaning staff to the front desk were superb.
