U.S. News Review

In Santa Monica, proximity to the beach and pier translates into more expensive lodging. So just know that you'll pay a pretty penny to enjoy a stay at Shutters on the Beach. But you'll be rewarded with a shabby-chic, oh-so-irresistible hotel that travel experts fawn over and guests can't stop gushing about. Guest rooms here are reminiscent of those found in a beachside B&B, though they come stocked with flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, marble bathrooms and private libraries, not to mention personal balconies overlooking Santa Monica. The lovely views are the big plus, but people also like this hotel's friendly staff and the fare served at the property's three restaurants. And in case you take the hint, you can find this sprawling, Cape Cod-style hotel just west of the pier and directly on the Santa Monica waterfront.
