This was a wonderful, relaxing place to stay. We entered the lobby area which was immediately calm and peaceful, the decor had a pleasant medieval feel. Our apartment, was large with plenty of room for 2 people to move around without bumping into each other as you would in a regular hotel room. The furnishing was was homey and comfortable; it was a wonderful place to come back to after a long day of walking and exploration. The room had everything that we needed, extra bed linens (in case of visitors), a full kitchen and 2 large walk in closets. The location was ideal for us - it was a few blocks away from the busy 3rd St Promenade, so the area was quiet and peaceful while only being a 5 min walk away from the action. The hostess was very attentive and affable, she immediately arranged car service for our departure when we checked in! We loved Santa Monica and Embassy H.A.s really made our visit special. Overall, it was a very hospitable and unique place to stay, and we highly recommend them over the other overpriced run of the mill hotels.
