I was pleasantly surprised by the Mosaic. It truly is IN Beverly Hills - within walking distance of great restaurants and shopping. Although cab rides are expensive, it's easy and relatively quick to get to Santa Monica Pier, Long Beach, etc. from the Mosaic.
Our room was pretty small but perfectly quiet and the beds were extremely comfortable. (A huge plus for me was that it was within walking distance from Dr. Boxer-Wachler's office - an especially nice bonus because it's kind of difficult to get around immediately after having eye surgery!)
The staff was terrific; accommodating, friendly (no, Chad does NOT have the personality of a guppy!) and very informative. After one especially harrowing day (a terrifying, life-threatening adventure on the Metro Blue Line) the hotel driver went out of his way to find us a restaurant that was open late so we could have a drink (or two!) and dinner at 11:00 at night.
A word of caution to the "LA uninitiated": DO NOT USE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION!!! After spending a fortune on cabs we were informed by some well-meaning citizens in Long Beach that the Metro Blue Line would take us exactly where we needed to go. Unfortunately, the Blue Line goes right into South Central LA (thru the Compton/Watts areas) and dead-ends in central LA. Those are NOT areas friendly to two middle-aged, white females! Our lives were threatened at knife-point and it still amazes me that we got back to the Mosaic alive!
I will be going back to Dr. Boxer-Wachler for more surgery this summer and I will definitely be staying at the Mosaic!
