This is an interesting little property that I doubt was originally built as a hotel (or else maybe it's just been remodeled in a creative way). I was impressed that everything (in both the room and the public spaces) was new, modern, and clean. They have a restaurant which I wasn't necessarily counting on. They made a big deal at check-in about how they'd "upgraded" me to one of their bungalows. It was nice and new with a high ceiling, but the big ta-do about the upgrade was a bit funny considering the square footage is actually less than most standard Marriott/Hilton hotel rooms (and, I suspect, smaller than some of their other rooms in the main building). I do like the in/out parking lot which was extremely convenient and no-hassle. The only 2 things that keep me going to 5 stars on this one are the room rate and my experience with a stopped-up toilet. I called them before I left to get dinner and told them about the toilet problem; the response was "I'll have somebody come right over and fix it!" When I returned 2 hours later, nothing had been done so I had to call a second time. With Santa Monica room rates going through the roof, maybe a HGI in MdR can get away with what they charge, but it seems really high (though it's probably in line with the Marriott next door). If you don't mind being farther off the beach, there's another Hilton property (the Hotel MdR by Doubletree) a bit to the south just off Lincoln. It's nothing special, but likely cheaper.
