My husband and I decided we would travel to LA and the drive from there to Vegas for our 1 year anniversary. Knowing we would be spending ALOT of money we needed a hotel which was based in Santa Monica and a great price, but in the centre of everything. This hotel was perfect! We were able to have a parking space on arrival and the staff were SOOO friendly! We arrived around 7pm and were hungry, they gave us a map of Santa Monica and told us where the best places to eat where. Circling great tourist attractions along the way we managed to get dinner and sight see all at the same time. The room was so much better then we expected, clean, spacious, comfortable and we had a huge TV in there too. The wasn't any air con in our room though just a fan, but it was ok. The bathroom was ok a swell. We had a shower, sink and toilet. However I must say the toilet roll was very thin (as a women you notice these things!) so be prepared. Towels were provided along with soaps. The only thing I would say that let's it down is the building work across the road. It's not the hotels fault, it simply is that as soon as it hits 7am, it gets really loud outside your window and pretty much wakes you up. The location is great as you can walk to the pier and are not far from Venice beach.
