Good value with the 50% discount

The hotel has a chic decor and appearance. The room is a little small but manageable. The hotel looks much shinier on the outside than the room itself. Maybe it was because the room was deeply discounted. The outdoor swimming pool is nice with decent outdoor furniture but a bit small. It is relaxing to have a pool to hang out in a sunny day. However, there is no running HOT water in the small little outdoor shower. there is no trash can or toilet near the pool. One has to come into the lobby to have access to these. I ended up causing a lot of water dripping in the lobby :-( There is no fridge in the room!!! There is no lock on the bathroom door in my room, which may not be an issue if one stays alone. The $20 charge for valet parking per day (they only offer valet parking and nothing else) is a little much for a 3 star hotel. Fortunately, one can easily park on the streets if walking one or two blocks to the hotel is not an issue.

I love this hotel!

Best Value, Fun with great options within walking distance. Near the Airport and the beach. For a perfect special event take a cab to Cantenellis Italian restaurant in Playa del Rey. Your date will think she has gone to Heaven and your taste buds will be treated to the Best Italien food in Los Angeles. Cheers

Good location...nice for the price!

This is a nice European, boutique hotel - the only thing they are missing in room service. The location is within walking distance to some restaurants, but room service would be nice after a long day! Great workout facilities and friendly staff.

Great Experience

Valet service was wonderful, and hotel staff was very friendly. The adjoining bar & grill was a little pricey, but It's LA. Minimalist look with a boutique feel. Loved it.

Clean & fun place to crash in a great neighborhood

I have always loved this hotel, from the time it was the Furama and we stayed here when visiting our daughter at the Loyola Marymount campus a few blocks away. Very easy walking distance to supermarket (Ralph's), tennis courts (with weekday morning drop-in play) bowling alley, public library branch, lots of restaurants, walking track across the street, and a 5-10 minute shuttle ride to LAX (free at the time of our stay). Our room had a GREAT view, and was clean & fine for our one-night stay. BUT, it was possibly the tiniest hotel room we'd ever seen (barely room to edge around the bed, which was in the middle of the room, and not the King we had booked. No desk, microwave, coffee maker, or mini-fridge. Shower took at least 5 minutes to draw any hot water. Parking is valet or street. Oddly appointed, with no lock on bathroom door, which has large frosted glass window. Apparently, there are a lot of amenities -- bar, pool, exercise room, etc. -- in the hotel itself, though we were not there long enough to visit them. Bottom line is, this is a base camp, not a destination. If you're not planning to spend time in your room, except in bed, and if you're alone or with someone you're comfortable with in very close quarters, you might enjoy this. If you check in expecting the really cool college single dorm room you always wished you had, you won't be disappointed.

Forget its name, but left out of the hotel, right at the light, and two blocks up & across the street, is a great Mexican breakfast place (on the way to the LMU campus)

Always an enjoyable experience

The staff is always friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable. The only thing I would request is that there was a coffee maker provided in the room.

Trendy Try

Its a hotel near LAX. I did a package deal so i'm not sure how much went into the hotel. The room was a bit small and it covered the concrete walls with a curtains. Again its by LAX so don't expect an amazing view. The staff was good and they have a trendy over priced restaurant. WiFi was free but the parking is not. Bottom line: i would probably go somewhere else. If you are in a pinch and there no other options this place gets the job done.
