What: My favorite tips and things to do, part I…
Where: Los Angeles, California
What: Hotel on the beach of Santa Monica
The Shutters on the beach in Santa Monica is one of my favorite hotels ever – and also a place to be for many stars during the Oscars. The five star hotel designed in beach house style – what I love a lot – got an elegant pool and an excellent spa and it is directly located at the wide beach of Santa Monica. Restaurants and rooms that are staffed with small balconies that face the beach side offer a great view over the Pacific Ocean.
Only a few minutes by crossing the (very touristic) Santa Monica pier will take you from the Shutters to Third Street Promenade, the only pedestrian zone in LA that includes lots of stores, restaurants and cinemas.
Tip: I love enjoying the seaside view whilst having a sundowner on the terrace of Shutters (- includes only five tables that cannot be reserved). All the snacks that you can pick of the small menu are so delicious!
Additionally: do not forget to reserve a table in advance at restaurant Coast in the Patio, one of the best addresses for having breakfast in LA. There are no reservations necessary during working days.
