We stayed here for one night before an all day tour of LA the following day. Room was clean and nice, but beds are full size, not queens. The front desk graciously sent up a single rollaway bed that worked great for my 11 year old daughter. We ate breakfast at the restaurant on site and it was delicious. Used... More

I visited the area last week with my husband and daughter to see relatives in LA. We wanted a hotel a bit away from Hollywood for some peace and quiet at night. Although there was a conference going on at the time of our stay, the room could not have been any quieter. The hotel lobby and bar along with... More

I really enjoyed this JW Marriott. The service was quite good (although the concierge did screw something up, and didn't provide me with instructions that were supposed to be left in my room). My room was huge, which is nice for LA. However, the decor is rather outdated. Feels like mid 80s, and really needs a refurb. The location is... More

It started with the friendly greeting from the bell staff at the front door. They immediately made us feel welcome. The young man at the front desk was courteous, helpful and professional. The bellhop was as nice as could be. In fact everyone we met that worked there were friendly, knowledgable and seemed very well trained. The lobby is bright... More

Is an easy trip from the LA Airport. The manager checked us into the hotel and she kindly upgraded us to a Suite. It was sweet. Had a great living room separate from sleeping quarters. Everyone was such a pleasure. The restaurant was very nice to eat in and the food was really good. Lots of shopping places and just... More

I stayed here for one night for a work meeting this week. I was upgraded to a larger room with a huge balcony- if I'd known I would have tried to arrive earlier so I could lie in the hammock!! I have stayed in many Marriotts including multiple JWs- this hotel is good but does not meet JW levels as... More

This is a "nice" property. The staff was attentive, the hotel clean, and the rooms fine. But, it was not a JW and I'm surprised the brand is on this property. Perhaps most disappointing is the fact that the windows in the room did not open - probably never did. Imagine staying on the ocean in California and you are... More

All show and no substance. We arrived around 10pm in a taxi and after a week in Hawaii. Needless to say we had a fair amount of luggage. An employee greeted us. I'm not exactly sure what his job was other than standing around and doing nothing. He made no offer to assist us with our bags. So schlepped our... More

Our family have stayed in this hotel several times and Tano, one of the hotel staffs has always been a joy to see again and again. It's a great location near the pier and lots of children's activities near by the beach however the rates are quite expensive and you have to pay for wifi. If you go to Marina... More

This hotel is in a great location however, apart from that it is just OK. The lobby bar area is pretty small and non-descript although the terrace is quite nice. The pool area is small and cramped so head to the beach. The rooms are clean and functional but otherwise nothing to write home about. Overall -OK.
