This hotel is different in that you feel as if you're a guest in a well-maintained home. It has an old elegant look about it i.e. not modern by any means. However the apartments are not typical holiday apartments as the rooms are the size of permanent accommodation with a separate kitchen, and tons of cupboard space all over the apartment. Though I prefer more modern accommodation, if the rooms were upgraded I would not fault it.
Parking is a bit of an inconvenience, but you will eventually find some.
The winner is the location in that the area seems quite residential and safe, and it is within easy walking distance to shops, restaurants, beach and the famous Santa Monica Pier.
