    One of the best hotel we have stayed in the world

    Shutter on the Beach really a 5 stars hotel and best in Santa Monica. Very helpful and warm friendly concierge, guest arrival and reception staff presented during our stay. All restaurant staff also very professional and friendly to us. Rooms that we have booked also beyond our expectation and clean. Love the bathtub. Hotel also provide heated pool and beach services. Overall it is one of our best stay during our holiday in USA.

    Parking lot in my face for $2k NO THANKS

    $2000 for 2 nights in the winter to be staring at a parking lot with people pulling in and out starting at 6am. Also heard a street sweeper. Awful. Manager was not helpful at all when we arrived T 1am exhausted. Last time staying here and I’ve been coming for 25 years. There are better options now.

    We had the pleasure of staying at Shutters Santa Monica during the Christmas holiday and it was an incredible experience. The weather was absolutely beautiful, with sunny skies and comfortable temperatures, which really enhanced our stay. The hotel itself is stunning, with a beautiful beachfront location and elegant decor. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed, with luxurious bedding and amenities that made us feel right at home. The food was excellent, with a wide variety of options available at the hotel's restaurant and bar. The staff were all extremely friendly and attentive, making sure that we had everything we needed during our stay. Overall, our stay at Shutters Santa Monica was absolutely wonderful. The weather was great, the food was excellent, and the staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Santa Monica, especially during the holiday season.

    The Best of The Best

    A second visit to Shutters. Quick trip to see my daughter and son-in-law. And I have only the highest praise for this lovely hotel, professional, helpful staff, and my perfect ocean-front room. I have stayed at the Meurice in Paris, the Browns in London, the San Clemente Palace in Venice, and the experience at Shutters is certainly on a par with these wonderful international venues. I highly recommend Shutters for a memorable and delightful Santa Monica experience.

    Luxury Price / Not a luxury experience

    I had a very unfortunate and not good experience here. I was in town visiting family and they recommended this hotel to me as they know I appreciate a luxury experience. The price reflects one of a luxury experience but the experience itself was anything but. Pros: - Great breakfast! Super good food and delicious fresh juice. The host and server were so fun and friendly. The restaurant indoors and outdoor space were absolutely beautiful. Cons: - Called the hotel to ask if I could have a late check-in (8pm vs 4pm) they confirmed my reservation and said that wouldn't be a problem. I arrived at 8pm and they claimed they didn't have a reservation for me. I showed them multiple confirmations emails they sent me along with email updates about my reservation. They said, they still couldn't find it. I spent an hour at the front desk dealing with this before they "found a room they could give me even though they were full". - All of the toiletries in my room were open, used, and mostly empty (Malin & Goetz shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and toilet paper) - The rooms sound like they have no doors. I could hear the neighbors chatting, their shower, the hair dryer, hallway passers, etc. Not the usual hotel noise that's to be expected. It's truly terrible. - Hotel is very old and outdated - Was charged a "resort" fee. When we asked what that was for we were told it was for shuttle amenities, bikes, etc. provided by the hotel. In my hour of standing at the checkin I was never was told any of these amenities were available to me but of course charged for it. If you love a luxury hotel you can pay the same price and stay somewhere truly luxurious with all of the amenities. This is def not it.
