Shutters on the Beach

Shutters on the Beach is a well-loved hotspot for locals and celebrities alike, nestled in the heart of Santa Monica. Known for its relaxing seaside brunches, invigorating cocktails, and tranquil poolside lounging, it's no wonder why this coastal retreat is frequented by many. The hotel's charming design, courtesy of Michael S. Smith — renowned for his work on the Obama White House — adds to its allure.

Upon entering the lobby, visitors are greeted by a refreshing sea breeze and a distinct nautical ambiance. Cozy corners adjacent to fireplaces and adorned with artwork from California masters like David Hockney and Claes Oldenburg create an inviting atmosphere.


One Pico, the hotel’s restaurant, offers a sophisticated dining experience under high ceilings adorned with antique boat hulls and art nouveau lanterns. Here, guests can savor Chef Michael Reardon’s seasonally-inspired menu that exudes elegance without being pretentious.


ONE the Spa, under the guidance of celebrity spa expert Ole Henriksen, offers a taste of L.A.'s indulgent spa services. Signature treatments include the Moon Glow facial and the cucumber-rich Nature Baby body treatment. Afterward, guests can sunbathe by the pool.



Shutters on the Beach boasts a prime location on the Pacific Ocean shores. It's just a stone's throw away from the historic Santa Monica Pier, exciting shopping destinations, eateries, and a beachfront path perfect for jogging or rollerblading.


The hotel’s lobby lounge is a lively hub where movie producers, writers, and guests mingle. Known for its live music, it's the perfect spot for an evening cocktail.


Coast Restaurant, another dining option within Shutters, hosts a popular happy hour from Monday through Thursday. Guests can relish discounted fish tacos and oysters while sipping on $4 beers, $6 wines, and $7 specialty cocktails.


Guest rooms at Shutters have a residential feel, complete with whimsical touches like built-in shelves filled with books and knickknacks. The traditional wood furniture and beach-inspired color palette add to the room's homely charm.



Each room features crown molding, thick area rugs, contemporary artwork, and mahogany floors, along with photographs of the ocean. High, comfortable beds and narrow balconies offering ocean views elevate the guest experience.


The hotel’s restaurants offer something for every palate. One Pico serves up a range of small plates and hearty entrées, while Coast offers everything from ceviche and fish tacos to steak frites and classic hamburgers. The Living Room, a bustling social spot, serves light bites, afternoon tea, and evening cocktails, making Shutters on the Beach a culinary destination as well as a luxurious getaway.
