Shutters' tag line is
'where nothing stands between you and the sand' - and this
star-studded hotel, west of LA, has the all-American beach house
look down to a tee.
Although there are 158
rooms, each feels like a private bungalow and interiors are
straight out of a Ralph Lauren advert.
Bikes wait outside for a
ride along the boulevard up to Venice Beach, but make it back in
time for brunch to beat the LA scenesters who flock here to eat
pancakes. Wind down with the jazz band at cocktail hour before
sinking into the most comfortable beds ever.
WOW FACTOR: Tap the
'Hopes and Dreams' button on your room phone and staff will arrange
whatever you wish - embrace the 'Cali life' with a surf lesson.
