Shutters on the Beach

This beachfront hotel showcases California casual style at its most elegant.

Deluxe room at Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica

At this on-the-beach beauty, travelers can savor a rest from from L.A.'s high octane atmosphere. The exterior design evokes the feeling of SoCal's historic 1920s beach properties, with slate-gray shingled siding, flower-covered trellises, balconies and striped awnings. Two large wood-burning fireplaces add a cozy feel to the inviting lobby, and original paintings, lithographs and objets d'art by talents such as David Hockney, William Wegman and Roy Lichtenstein are prominently displayed throughout. At 1 Pico, the hotel's handsome dining room, water views compete for diners' attention with the seasonal, market-driven menu. For a more casual experience, Coast café opens onto the boardwalk and serves California cuisine with Italian touches; it's also a popular destination for weekend brunch.

Although the overall feel is that of a luxurious beach home, each accommodation is unique, with exquisite details like hand-woven Tibetan rugs, John Robshaw textiles, curated libraries and tasteful tones that reflect the sand, surf and sky. Balconies are among the most coveted room features, and Presidential Suites are especially sumptuous with their fireplaces and full ocean views. As for standard room amenities, they are many: LCD flat-screen TVs with Bluetooth speaker systems, handcrafted beds and hydrothermal massage tubs. The hotel is known for its ONE Spa, offering Kerstin Florian, Luzem, Hydropeptide and Omorovicza treatments. In addition, the property houses a beautiful swimming pool, deck with beach view, Jacuzzi and state-of-the-art health club. Meeting spaces include three rooms that open onto an outdoor terrace, and Shutters is a lovely spot for weddings, receptions and social events.
