10/10 Exceptional

Nice place, great restaurant! Would come back!

Lovely hotel perhaps quite far from LA sights
Nice hotel. Very clean and staff were very friendly. Complimentary breakfast bag was a nice touch. Stayed here as our location for LA but completely under-estimated how big LA is.....its a good 20-25 minutes drive to the centre of Hollywood (Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre, etc). Also need to remember you pay to park (always a surprise to visitors from the UK) so this did turn out to be the most expensive stop on our trip from San Francisco to San Diego.

Expensive Parking
The fee to park in the hotel parking lot was not disclosed until we checked in. The room was okay.

Nice but may need earplugs
Hotel room was nice, clean and comfortable beds. However walls were paper thin and you could hear everything next to you and above. Would recommend earplugs.

25 minutes from LAX, quiet, safe area.
After a late flight from overseas, we stayed here to avoid the noise at LAX. It was quiet and comfortable.

4/10 Fair

Not amazing
At the rate we paid, it was very disappointing. Guest services was unhelpful. We asked for a different room- literally ANY different room, we will pay more, whatever. but they would not accommodate. We were on the first floor, right next to the lobby and elevator. There was a pedestrian walkway right outside our window, so safety and privacy was nonexistent. There was barely any bedding… one thin blanket sandwiched between sheets. The tv kept power surging and shutting off every 15 minutes. At 5am, a drunk woman was screaming outside our door. Then in the morning, there was no hot water. Plus, had to pay for parking. This is by no means, a nice hotel for a couple’s getaway. This is a location-satisfactory, clean- yet bare minimum room to sleep.
Well trafficked walkway right outside window. So awkward.
Did they forget to give us a comforter?
