“Great location and good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

It is near the exit ramps of the 405 which is convenient albeit noisy. However the sound insulation is quite good. Quite a few of the rooms could do with some updating but overall the rooms are comfortable and provide good value. Beds are very comfortable. Service is almost always friendly and effective. We have family in Santa Monica and have not found a better place to stay during the last few years. Definitely worth a try.

Room Tip: Rooms with numbers 2,3,4,and 5 face away from the highway.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

I was needing a central place to work and stay in LA to see clients. At first glance I knew I was at the wrong place, as the place is located on the exit ramps for the 405 freeway. The experience went South when my disappointment met the front desk clerk who basically did not seem to care. Her response was she allowed me to check in an hour early, but the best rooms was on the 2nd floor eye level to the highway, overlooking the dumpsters. I was told there was no manager on duty who could move me to another room not ear level with the non stop traffic.

The rooms are small; mine did not even have a chair or desk. Luckily, Armand the painter went above and beyond to get me 2 chairs and a cocktail table so I could work. Every hotel should be so lucky to have someone who remembers service onsite.

Purchased the room blindly, and they did offer to give me back a night, but the way my clients were scheduled, trip would have cost doubled. So for the price the rooms was adequate, and If you need to be here for an event, the beds are comfy and the highway does slow up a bit after midnight, til about 5 am. But if you need a place to work, and need any quiet, this is not the place for you.

Room Tip: Ask to be on the side of the tower not facing the 405 and on an upper floor.. This may help

I was only in LA for 4 nights and this hotel was great. They offered an isolated location; some freeway noise is audible but earplugs block it all out. There was a problem with an internet but the staff helped us for hours and eventually we were able to connect. The free valet is an amazing amenity as most hotels in the area want from 20-40 $$ extra a night just for parking. The valet is also speedy and friendly and was well-appreciated. We did not try the breakfast, but the view from the upstairs restaurant and lounge is really cool; it is hard too see through the smog, but it's LA what do you expect? At night a DJ plays at the lounge. Overall, we had a very positive experience; it was great to be separate from the touristy areas as we were there mainly for college visits. We will likely stay here again next time.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less highway noise, but overall it isn't much of a problem; we were on the 3r...

This is a nice hotel, but with all of the freeway construction our 12 mile drive from LAX took an hour plus (very frustrating for those of us not used to this mind-boggling traffic.

Rooms were nice, clean, with a great comfy bed. A little on the small side though.

The positive: This hotel is a great value considering the neighborhood it's in, that wi-fi and valet parking are included, and the views from some rooms. I also found the beds to be extremely comfortable. The staff is also very accommodating and friendly. The included toiletries are manufactured by Lather, and you could definitely do worse.

The bad: If you're going to LA to meet women or impress someone, I'd probably find a different hotel. While the lobby is decent, the hallways of the hotel have low ceilings, the rooms are small, and the bathrooms, while large, are decidedly low-rent. Ours had a very small step-in tub and the handle connecting to water valve was barely attached. The showers are also low flow, so not terribly satisfying. The towels and robes are low quality. The housekeepers do an okay job, but not to the level of a great hotel.

Room Tip: Insider tips: You definitely want a room facing the hill (west-facing). The east facing side of th...

I came here on a whim using Hotels Tonight and was amazed. I know most places are hit or miss but this is a total hit. Joseph the concierge knows how to eat or as he likes to put it its his, "his backyard". We can't thank him enought for his foodie knowledge.

The whole property eludes Los Angeles glamour. Next time were in town we will most likely stay here.

Thanks Joseph for Banders our new favorite spot in LA.
