Stylish and comfortable, clean, good service and food. Unexpectedly, there were a lot of nice paintings by russian artists of XX century. Interesting interriors and courtyard, good place to make fotosession.

Everything you describe is exactly what we strive to be and provide for all of our guests, so it is fantastic to know that we were able to meet your standards and our own during your visit. Very special attention was paid to the interior design of the hotel by the Ayres family to make it distinctly European in feel and I am thrilled this helped make your stay even more comfortable. Your recommendation is most appreciated and we hope you will visit us again very soon.

I have stayed here several times for work. Great location to LAX, the beach and my offices. This time it was for a social funtion. The food was delicious. Really good for a hotel large volume service. Rooms are always clean, bed super comfy, breakfast is free and very good.
Great staff... just a very personal hotel.

The hotel lived up the the internet pictures! Very clean facility, comfortable beds, friendly staff and convenient location are just the beginning. The courtyard was gorgeous and the hotel restaurant was such a pleasure. Seeing the internet pictures, we were afraid we would never be able to afford a hotel that looked like this. We were pleasantly surprised at its affordability. We were not disappointed AT ALL. The desk staff greeted us by name each time we entered or left the hotel and were glad to take us to various outings on their shuttle. We will absolutely stay here again when in the LA area and can't recommend it highly enough!

This was our first time to stay in an Ayres Hotel. I booked it because of the great reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed! The hotel is very conveniently located near LAX and the beach. Wonderful room with 2 queen beds and plenty of space the us and our 2 kids. Great staff, beautiful pool area and a really good breakfast! Close to Manhattan Beach and great restaurants! Took the shuttle one day to the beach and enjoyed not having to find parking. Just schedule with the front desk and they will drop you off and pick you back up. Fabulous experience!

Room Tip: Ask for a 4th floor room!

We arrived mid afternoon in the gloom of fog - or low overcast - and chill with breeze in the air - yes in late June ! - so entering the Ayres gave us the feeling of being in England - with cozy furniture and tapestries & stone walls of a castle.. We found the King room included everything we needed. Delicious complete breakfast with NO noisy TV. Just tablecloths and china in a large spacious dining area, Many well mannered people there -& didn't feel crowded either. SO good
to feel civilized.
