Among the ridiculously expensive hotels in Santa Monica (e.g, Shutters, Casa Del Mar) is a gem of a hotel. The Ambrose is a boutique hotel in the best sense of the genre. Located one block from the ever busy Wilshire Boulevard, this asian influenced hotel is a serene way station that is best suited for couples and business travelers. The rooms are relatively large, clean and well appointed. A continental breakfast is served each morning and the hotel has a lovely garden where you can enjoy your Starbucks coffee and organic scone. The staff are helpful and friendly. Free car service is available for nearby trips and, unheard of for Santa Monica, the hotel offers free guest parking. The one drawback is the hotel's proximity to the local hospital which results in the occasional sirens from emergency vehicles. The noise, however, does not detract from the overall experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located on the corner of 20th and Arizona Street, the property is in a quiet and unassuming neighborhood and is Santa Monica's first award-winning LEED Certified boutique hotel.
