When we arrived at the hotel on a Saturday night, the place was hopping with people because of the Bazaar next door. There was no traffic in and around the area, but the place was packed. But don't worry, if this isn't your scene, or even if it is, the hotel is set back from the Bazaar that it's very quiet.
The location of the SLS is very central to most things in the Los Angeles area. We met a friend that lived in the valley, and he made it to our hotel in about 30 minutes. All the shopping and restaurants in the Beverly Hills area is within 10 minutes.
Once we figured out where to check in, the front desk staff was very efficient and helpful. The process was quick and simple.
We had a standard room, which was decorated very nicely. The room is a little dark, but that give the place it's atmosphere. The bed is in the middle of the room, which is interesting (and we actually tried to emulate this at home but it didn't work), and the desk is located behind the bed. There is a television hidden in a glass panel that is really cool, and a long bench was by the window with reading material and snacks for purchase.
The bathroom was very cool. The doors and walls were on sliding panels, which could open in to the main part of the bedroom. The best part of the bathroom was the bath products. The soap is the best hotel soap we have every used! It was fragrant and had grit to it. We liked it so much we took an extra bar of soap home.
That night, we drank at the bar and the bartender was very friendly and made really great drinks. It was a nice place to chill with friends and hang out. It didn't seem pretentious at all.
The pool area looked really nice. It was a cold, wet day when we were there, so the pool was close. But we could tell this hotel has a very nice pool scene.
