I picked this hotel because it was close to the Smashing Conference being held in Santa Monica. Company payed for it so I wanted a hotel I close to everything in Santa Monica. Location of this hotel is great. Near the 3rd Promenade. Close to the Santa Monica Pier. The room were comfy and clean. The staff were also helpful.
Downside is the parking that is not for free. No breakfast if you are looking for a hotel with breakfast. No pool or gym. Maybe they did offer this in near location, but didn't see or get any such. If you want a room with a nice view be willing to pay for it. Tried asking for a room with a view because the room I got had a view of the parking space at the back. The staff could give me one the next day but would be with extra charge. One of the most annoying thing was the wifi. It was bad. Maybe it was because of my room was almost the end and reason for bad coverage of the wifi.
I guess if the downsides that I mentioned is not important and just looking for a comfy and great location hotel then this is it! But if the little things such as wifi, parking, view, etc are also something you need then look for somewhere else.
