This hotel exceeded our expectations. The location is perfect for restaurants, shopping and the beautiful Beverly Hills Library. The staff were consistently responsive and friendly. The "cooked-to-order" breakfast was first-rate as was the delightful terraced seating area. Daily newspapers & magazines available in the lounge along with freshly-made (and very good) coffee available at 7:00 a.m. We upgraded to a King room as the standard rooms are small -- a move made effortless by hotel staff. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet except during the early-morning rubbish pickup nearby. The bathroom was fine; however, the lighting was not adequate for applying makeup. This charming hotel is ideal for either the business traveler or those interested in exploring the area. We would definitely recommend this gem to friends.
