As the name suggests, Shutters on the Beach is located smack dab on the beach with just the sand separating you from the ocean. It's within walking distance to the famous Santa Monica Pier and Third Street Promenade for shopping and dining.
The hotel's grand exterior, complete with plenty of windows with shutters, is reminiscent of a seaside hotel you would find on the East Coast's Cape Cod or Nantucket. The upscale interior is filled with luxe touches, yet it somehow still feels like a relaxed beach house.
Guest rooms are open and airy with light colors throughout. They feature luxurious amenities but also small touches that make you feel like you're at home -- think throw blankets, a bookcase filled with books, flowers and keepsake decorations. Bathrooms are spacious and feature whirlpool tubs, and rooms have balconies so you can take in the ocean views (many rooms sit oceanside).
Pamper yourself with a massage or facial at the hotel's One the Spa, or get in a workout at the sleek, fully equipped fitness center and then relax in the steam room. The upscale and airy One Pico offers seasonal California cuisine and ocean views. The more casual Coast has a cafe and bar, perfect for a glass of wine and small bites. The Living Room is the hotel's beachy lobby lounge and terrace, offering spectacular ocean views, along with light meals, afternoon tea and cocktails. The hotel is also one of the most popular spots for weddings, so don't be surprised if you see a bride and groom in your midst during your stay.
Rent a beach cruiser and take a bike ride along the Santa Monica Beach bike path. Or if you're heading into Santa Monica for dinner, request a ride from the hotel's complimentary town car -- a Tesla S P85 -- so you can arrive in style.
