We arrived Christmas Day night with our three children and we were not disappointed! Shutters is like a Hamptons cottage tucked away on the beach in beautiful Santa Monica. We had dinner that evening and breakfast there every morning--the food was AMAZING! It was a very busy time of the year for the hotel but the service was still excellent ! The rooms were beautiful--a little small, but lovely and the beds were so comfortable! I wish it had been warmer because the pool was so inviting. All of our amenities were waiting for us in our rooms and the hotel staff couldn't have been nicer--not one issue. We will return again--very soon I hope!!!

The atmosphere, service, and location of the hotel are excellent. It is very expensive, however. And breakfast for two costs $70.

Worn out suite upgrade in old section with a 90% view of the parking lot for $900 per night. Very disappointing.

A bit like being invited into someone’s home - The hospitality was consistent and poised - everything is tidy and clean, welcoming. It feels a bit New England, but waaay more relaxed, much warmer and has just enough buzz in the Living Room. The live music was a welcome touch and you cannot beat the location. The food was quite good, not fancy and not middle of the road - quality evident. Great by-the-glass wine list - that’s not so common!

Stayed here before. Like it enough to repeat my stay. Although find it very expensive for what you get in ambiance and amenities. Could have heated the pool! Service was excellent.
