DON'T EXPECT TO SLEEP

I had no sleep for the two nights I stayed there. Night club next door played music until wee hours and even though I was on the 8th floor, I spent the night staring at the ceiling. Had business meeting next morning, it was no good. Very disappointed.

Nice room

Room was pretty nice. There's a charge for parking, but I forgot how much. Nice location by the beach. A little pricey.

Beautiful location, not the rooms

The location of the hotel was fantastic. The rooms looked lovely but the tv, hairdryer failed to work. The bed was quite uncomfortable and the AC was loud and abrupt!

New Years Eve celebration

A bit expensive but a wonderful stay and a festive atmosphere. We loved it ! (there was a wedding that night so valet parking was a bit messy)

Visit SoCal

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great location, close to the Third Street Promenade and Santa Monica pier. I enjoyed using the bikes for a long ride along the beach. Fun trip. Will be back.

nice stay

excellnt location-perfect for riding bikes along the ocean. It is so close to great shopping and restaurants. Also, a great experience is to ride bikes to Venice beach. My only complaint would be with the size of the pool area. The only way to get a seat at the pool is to get down there at the crack of dawn. Otherwise, it was a great experience!
