Expert Reviews
Shutters feels like a rambling seaside villa that's been plucked from Martha's Vineyard and dropped onto the boardwalk below Santa Monica Pier.
Afar Magazine
An elegant, breezy hotel decked out in nautical-inspired decor, Shutters feels more like a wealthy friend’s sprawling summer estate than an urban lodging.
"New England" "charm" comes to Santa Monica by way of this "luxurious, but not pretentious" "romantic" retreat just "steps" from the sand with "yummy views."
