Posted on February 4, 2011 | HotelsNo Comment

Welcome to the luxury seaside resort in Los Angels! This is the historically aromatic  beach resort called the Shutters on the Beach that is a pretty pebbled hotel nestled a block away from the Santa Monica pier and facing the Santa Monica beach as well as the boardwalk. This Cape Cod-style extravagance is more preferred than its sister Casa del Mar because of the all room featuring balconies and relatively personal boutique atmosphere. Yes, the Shutters on the Beach hotel is more famous for its ocean view rooms with the spaciousness abounding all around. Further, the sunlit lobby lounge looking over the dunes as well as the little swimming pool are the two big resting places for the celebrities who insists Shutters as an option to the hazy Hollywood.


The Shutters on the Beach houses the most elegant 198 rooms on its 7 floors, which are adorned in such a way so as to make the guests feel at a private beach cottage. Completely going with the hotel’s name, the white shutters layer the opening windows, while some of them open to the patios or balconies featuring white woven furniture, fireplaces, floor-to-ceiling windows, and whirlpool tubs. And the good news for a family is that all of these rooms are totally non smoking units. Out of the different room types available such as Partial Ocean View, Ocean View, and Superior holding the difference in view and bedding; I would recommend booking the beach-cottage room that looks over dunes and feature affordable rates than the ones in the towers.
