My girlfriend and I needed a place further north from Disneyland, since we didn't want to be making the drive from Anaheim to Santa Monica, Dodgers Stadium, Burbank and Hollywood area every day. This hotel seemed like it would be the perfect fit for us. It was beautiful on the outside and inside lobby, very up to date with modern furniture, natural lighting, and free fruit water (try it! super good!). I was surprised by the mandatory $20 a day valet parking, mainly just because I wasn't expecting it. I look back on it now and remember reading something stating that this was the case when I was booking the hotel, but it must have just skipped my mind. Apart from that, the valet was wonderful. They were always nice, very fast and soon enough remembered my face matched the car I drove and they would just bring the car out without even having to ask! The room was smaller than I expected but it was still very nice. It kept with the wonderful modern theme and the bed was quite comfortable. However, I noticed that the paint was chipping in most places, door frames were broken, carpet was old etc. It's not that it was a bad thing, it just surprised me a bit that they looked to miss a few of the details, causing the age of the building to show through. It seemed as though they tried to hide the shortcomings/aging of the building through band-aide type fixes instead of actually fixing/replacing the issue. All in all, it was perfect for us and we thoroughly enjoyed it!
