"Pleasant hotel, well positioned in Beverly Hills. "
This hotel is a little dated. It still seems to have the original animal print bath robes and decor of the early 80s. The carpet felt a little worse for wear underfoot.
However, the staff I. This hotel were the best we have come across anywhere. Nothing was too much. Staff helped us get in touch with loved ones overseas, gave us lifts to restaurants, and found places for us to unlock our international phones.
What this hotel was lacking in aesthetic, the staff more than made up for it.
The hotel itself is charming and quaint. Very modern decor and the rooms are perfect. However, the morning breakfast was literally non existent and the staff that was on duty were somewhat rude and not particularly warm. In Los Angeles there is a common theme of either terrific service or horrible. This experience was the latter. While the hotel website states there is a gym, they do not actually have one on site. You are forced to go 2 miles to the local LA fitness. Overall the hotel is very nice and I enjoyed the room, but the remaining pieces left a bad taste in my mouth.
Hotel is situated in the pleasant district of Westwood...a University suburb of L.A.
Lots of reasonably priced restaurants and also more Up-market options.
Good bus links to the centre of L.A. and also the coast & beaches.
Good link (bus) to The Getty Centre"... a wonderful experience not only of centuries of art but the architecture of the building is magnificent and the surrounding gardens are "out of this world"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
CLOSED ON MONDAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hotel overlooks the 405 freeway, so most room as very loud. You can't walk to any shops or restaurant. No self-parking. It's all valet (free for 1 car per room), but you have to wait a bit to get your car. Two very slow elevators for a 17 floor building.
