    Fabulous

    lovely room but we upgraded and the pool are and roof top very nice.

    Our only concern were the staff who didnt really have a clue apart from the bell boy and valets. Wake up calls always 15 -30 mins late/fridge didnt get replenished unless we asked

    Very good

    The bed was comfortable and the view of the ocean was quite nice. Health and Fitness facilities were ok.

    I did not like the rooms opening into an outdoor hallway....made me think of cheap apartment living. The bathtubs were difficult to operate...too many faucets and hard to climb into. Closets too small. Just not a nice feel to the room.

    The hotel is perfectly placed on Ocean Avenue, opposite the beach and within minutes by foot of the 3rd St. Promenade pedestrian shopping area and the Santa Monica Pier.It also has a lovely pool and sun deck area. Because of overbooking we had been upgraded from a deluxe king room with ocean view to a 2 bedroom suite with kitchen at no extra cost. Everyone was attentive, friendly and helpful.

    Superb

    Helpful staff & availability of swimming pool and hot pool with towels laid out on the loungers for guests to use at will. Luggage stored after we booked out and we were then allowed to use the pool facilities until our time to depart. Then a courtesy luxury car made available at normal taxi rates for our return trip to the airport.

    Great staff and a fantastic location. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Had the two bedroom suite with the best views of Santa Monica beach. The bar on the roof is not to be missed for sunset.
