I stayed 5 nights in Culver City for business - a short walk to Sony. Most Sony visitors have opted not to stay here, but it looked & sounded good to me - didn't need a pool, gym room was sufficient.
Firstly, hats off to the staff - all wonderful, responsive & efficient. I loved the historic building updated for good comfort. Totally met all my needs. The main hall, serving as landing, hangout, work, breakfast & party-down space works well & felt comfortable. The continental breakfast was more than enough. The issue with noise noted by some reviewers is minor at best. On the 5th floor facing the cinema, I experienced minimal noise - being a city person, it didn't bother me at all!
If you need more, lunch & dinner - a superb array of food choices from breakfast to dinner & drinks within a short walk. Especially recommend East Borough (Vietnamese diner), Wildcraft Pizza, Cafe Vida (wholefood).
The new cool Culver City Arts area @ Helms Bakery also a short walk. As is Trader Joes, a well stocked supermarket with fresh food. Everywhere else a short cab ride.
The subway station also a short walk away, although I'm not sure how safe one might feel at night...
In summary, nothing else to ask for! Why not 5 stars? At great relative value, the old Dame is great, but not perfect if that's what you need in every corner of your hotel. But not me!
Thanks folks. Will definitely be back!
