Fabulous 8.8 From 84 reviews

Poor 2.0
Very disappointing although it is a time of covid. Just difficult to justify the price with zero amenities. no one is staying in the hotel and they are still unwilling to upgrade a room...totally unnecessary when literally you are paying for nothing but a bed and a coffee maker.

Fantastic Rooms ok dining experience
I would have loved to give full 5 stars, but the dining experience was not up to NOBU standards at all. I have dined at Nobu Las Vegas, Malibu and LA, and this was not up to the Nobu standard. dirty plates left on table, lack luster service. The hotel itself is beautiful. Located in a safe and nice area w plenty of places to eat nearby. The rooms meet the Nobu standard, just wish dinner were the same
Margaret, us2 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
This is a beautiful boutique hotel however the staffing did not live up to the Nobu name. They charge $45/day for Valet however they rarely had a valet attendant outside so you are forced to park and go inside to find someone to help. The room was small as expected but very comfortable and minimally plush. However due to the location, I was awoken every morning at 5am by street sweepers and garbage trucks.

Poor 2.0
Front desk was not very accommodating. Tv and speaker did not work properly, when asked the technician was not eager to help and I asked to speak to the manager and never pass the message along. Wasn’t told that there were construction right outside of my room. Such a disappointing experience. Wouldn’t recommend. Amateur hours

Convenient location, good neighborhood, like the hotel is new, high tech, bright & clean, good bathroom amenity, love the body lotion, good customer service, if the hotel's parking valet fee is a little bit less expensive, then is perfect !!! Our Favorite: HUGE TV (very impressive) !!!
