Shutters is a beautiful hotel located on the perfect part of the beach just a few steps away from Santa Monica Pier. I opted to have a staycation over the 4th of July weekend and the stay was remarkable. The staff was on point, the food delicious and the spa heavenly. I had a massage and facial and recommend the entire experience. Looking forward to when I can go back.
