Shutters Santa Monica:
Cape Cod-Style Beach Luxury

Shutters Santa Monica is a favorite retreat for celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, and Ben Affleck, who choose to stay here - despite having homes less than 30 minutes away.

Why would they choose to come here?

The answer is simple: A stay in the luxe, New England, Cape Cod-style resort feels worlds apart from your everyday life - whether that life is 30 freeway miles or half a world away.

Exquisitely Appointed Guest Rooms

Shutters Santa Monica opened in the summer of 1993, with 186 guest rooms and 12 suites.

The suites are rooms that belong in a billionaire's beach house. 

Three private suites feature full ocean views, extra large bathrooms with oversized whirlpool bathtubs, additional powder rooms, full-size living rooms with fireplaces, dining tables to seat 4 to 6 people, and additional fireplaces in the master bedrooms.

Two of those are one-bedroom, 1,350 square foot presidential suites in the Ocean House building. The third is grand 1,500 square-foot suite in the Beach House.

Complimentary house-car transportation in the hotel's Tesla S class is available to suites and oceanfront room guests.

Even the standard guest room is a step into coastal luxury.

Each features beach-inspired decorative objects as part of the decor; many also have views of the coastline and the historic Santa Monica Pier through sliding, shuttered doors that open to a balcony.

Four poster beds, comfy lounge chairs, walnut desks and nightstands and custom-made white linens add to distinctly elegant decor.

Each guest room also features a reading library, 42-inch flat screen LCD television, and expansive bathrooms with hardwood floors.

There's also a pool and jacuzzi practically hidden on the roof of the main building that's the perfect venue for a sunset dip or soak.
