This isn't a luxury hotel and the room was a bit rough but totally minor points compared to all the plus points. Right on the beach with an amazing rooftop deck, felt like we were in heaven watching the sunset over the ocean. The help yourself brekkie was a nice touch and convenient. The hotel is right in the middle of the action, close to a few fantastic restaurants and the eclectic Venice beach. Plus to get free parking was a huge bonus. This place has a cool laid back feel and really added a lot to our first experience of LA, am really glad we choose it.
