Stayed here 3 years ago and it was very good. Now it looks tired; the rooms could be cleaner and the hot water was iffy. I know this is an expensive area but it was quite steep. I expect more from Kimpton.
Los Angeles can be brutal. Traffic sucks, and all the places you want to visit are 15 miles apart. But none of that matters if you stay here. It is a simple, quiet oasis. If you want action, don't stay here. If you want a clean room, free parking, and a hot cup of coffee and a Danish in the morning then I suggest you reserve a room.
The only reason I selected this facility was that it was close to UCLA and had a continental breakfast. But it was next to the freeway and this was both good and bad. The daily rate is high compare with other similar hotel for what you get in term of the facility and the area of this facility location.
Don't expect a large fancy lobby and oodles of amenities. The outside is clean and ordinary as you would expect of an Inn. It's the cleanliness and new room fittings that set it apart from a Ramada or Motel 6. The room is on the snug size but the bed is very comfy, the aircon keeps cool, there is a very useful fridge and the TV is a modern flat screen, although I couldn't find any movies on demand. What I really enjoyed though was the high pressure roomy shower. The breakfast is included and is of the light continental style.
