Santa Monica hotel help

my husband and I are planning a trip to Santa Monica in September. Looking to stay at either shutters or fairmont miramar. Difficulty choosing between the two. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

I have never stayed at Shutters but have stayed at the Fairmont several times in the last few years. The ocean view rooms are very nice, great gym and restaurant (Fig)-- fantastic breakfast. The staff go out of their way to be helpful. I assume you know the Fairmont is not on the beach. You are a short walk to the Promenade and many restaurants. They have free loaner bikes which you can take down to the beach bike path. Be aware that there is an outdoor bar at the Miramar which is really a nightclub and you need to make sure your room is not exposed to the music unless you like to stay up very late.

Thank you for the input. I wasn't aware of the noise from the outdoor bar. We do want an ocean view but will make sure it is not by the bar. Thanks again

We stayed at Shutters and although it's right on the beach, we found it disappointing that the large exhaust fan from the restaurant on the ocean side was both noisy and smelly... For that nightly rate, that shouldn't happen...

PS... Casa del Mar next door to Shutters might be a better choice
