This hotel is amazing. It really good restaurants, especially Coast which is on the boardwalk, great happy hour. They offer bikes out back as well for the boardwalk to guests. Definitely stay here or visit one of the restaurants.

Great happy hour until 7pm! Also has an amazing view of the beach while you're enjoying your food and drinks.

this place for sure deserves 5 stars for its location, oceanview and athmosphere..but you may be disappointed if you are looking for a great happy hour (Monday through Thursday, 5.00-7.00pm). Despite they serve good fancy cocktails or wine at a reasonable price, the food choices are very limited and portions tiny. Furthermore, happy hour is served solely at the bar, and there are only 8 stools available. Thus trying to be seated will be very hard if you are going with a friend or two. Valet parking only.

When I first came to LA I had the luxury of spending 3 weeks here. A room with a hot tub and view of the beach, the only way to live in LA!!!

Thank heaven I was on an expense account, its not cheap but its prime location makes it a great place to stay if you have the budget.

Shutters on the Beach is my favorite hotel in Los Angeles. I've had a pleasure of staying here twice, once for a wedding and once for business. Be sure to hit the hotel bar and try their excellent bloody mary.

beachside hotel, definitely the best option in santa monica by miles. walk out the hotels back door, and within a few seconds your feet are on the warm sometimes hot sands of santa monica beach! if you're lucky you'll get the occasional celebrity spotting at their bar

If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of LA, but still enjoy the posh amenities, Shutters on the Beach is a great potential solution. The rooms are nice, you can hear the ocean, the food is good, and the location in Santa Monica is ideal.

This is a super indulgent hotel with lots of luxuries and an unbeatable location right on the beach. We usually do not spend much time in our hotel room, but here we enjoyed the jacuzzi tub, the pillow laden bed, the Nespresso coffee and reading on the balcony overlooking the beach. The rooms with balconies facing the beach were expensive but this place was a real treat.

Fantastic Hotel with big rooms, well designed, great food and believe it or not, fantastic beach towels! Thick and rich. Have been numerous times and always find it is as great as I remembered it. Additionally, my two kids loved it too!

I went here for a happy hour and absolutely love this Hotel. It's elegant and peaceful (how can it not be being next to the water and in the beach?!) They have a great happy hour menu at the bar with good wines to compliment the food. You can go formal in their dining room or sneak away downstairs to theirs more casual cafe lounge. Relaxing atmosphere and yummy food for all to enjoy. Can't wait to go back during the day to explore...

Coast restaurant has an indoor and outdoor area housed in the charming Shutters Hotel on Pico/ Ocean Ave. Again Californian healthy, clean food. Great people-watch place as you look out directly at Santa Monica boardwalk. Of course, there's always a line and they don't take reservation. But they are very, very efficient. No matter how busy, we get seated not more than 20 mins, usually much less. Try to get there before 12noon, we typically get seated in less than 10 mins. Otherwise wait at the bar. Everyone's great and friendly. The hotel also rents out free green bikes - not sure if they allow diners to use their bikes or for hotel guests only.

At first I was a bit hesitant to stay at a Cape-Cod/Martha's Vineyard-looking hotel in the middle of LA (Santa Monica to be exact). As soon as I checked in, I realized what luck to have found this gem. The service is in accordance with standards of excellence, from the bellmen to management. The rooms really beautifully adorned with a deep tub and rubber whale (vs. duckie) and amazing amenities. The pool right facing the beach -- hence the name. And so much history. And I can't forget to comment on the food. I highly recommend anything seafood and if you're taking a little break from the diet, among the best red velvet cake ever!

Who says that the best brunch's aren't the most $$$$...well me?
The truth is, amazing location for a Sat/ Sun Brunch on the Terrace of Deck. Mimosas and Sun never hurt anyone, but the bill may. That's where the 4 stars come in. Other then that, I would just stay there the whole day to even watch the sunset, and order couple more bottles or rounds. But the sun would set on me.
It is simply breathtaking views, panoramic all the way, and there is nothing to stop the bliss except the bill....

If you want a fully Southern Californian experience, why not stay on the beach (and we mean *on* the beach) in Santa Monica? My cousin got married here, and the place couldn't have been more beautiful, the staff could not have been friendlier, the rooms could not have been more perfectly casual but upscale. They've got three different places to eat, all with crazy-beautiful views.

OK, it's too cold to go to New England this winter. Too much snow. Airports shut down for hours and days. Opt for Shutters on the Beach; so New England in its design you almost expect to spot a salty seafarer totting a netfull of freshly cauthg crabs through its luxurious lobby.

The place feels like a bucolic beach-house resort mere steps from the Pacific and ideally situated for anything from shopping on the 3rd street Promenade to strolling the shorlein down to funky Venice Beach.

Amazing hotel on the beach in Santa Monica. Rooms are big, well decorated, and the beds are super comfortable. Service is great, and the pool area is clean and nice. The restaurants are good as well (but pricey). Location is also hard to beat - walk out the doors and you are on the beach, 5 mins walk to the boardwalk and 10 minutes walk to shopping at the 3rd Street Promenade.
