We stayed here for a couple of nights for a romantic getaway. The following are is my summary:
- Nice decor
- Very helpful staff
- free continental breakfast had fresh items and a number of different selections
- Not to close or too far from all the attractions in Santa Monica ... just the right distance located in a quiet neighborhood, but you need a car to get around.
- Free parking
- Free Wifi
- Since it was my significant other's birthday, staff provided chocolates and bottle of wine for the occasion.
- Dated electonics in the room ... for this price point, I would expect at least flat panel TVs in the rooms.
- Shower had very little pressure and the spray was very narrow. The shower curtain also did not cover up the entire opening of the shower allowing water to come out onto the bathroom floors.
- Parking entrance is a bit hidden and difficult to find. Parking spots are also a bit tight .. but then again, it's free parking in Santa Monica, that's pretty hard to come by.
- Not many restuarants for shopping within walking distance, need to take a car to your destination.
Overall, it was a decent hotel but I would probably only stay here again if the price of the rooms were a little less. For the prices, I expected slightly better amenities to offset the somewhat remote location of the place.
