We look for hotels which will give us a great location, plus value, and that can be defined many ways. For us it is a mix of facilities and service that makes us feel we are valued, and there are hotels near the beach in Santa Monica charging $900 a night. This was significantly less :) We thoroughly enjoyed our three nights at this hotel. We had asked for a partial ocean view room, and a quiet room, and our requests were honoured. Though they define the view as "partial ocean", the view from our window is quite expansive and beautiful. We drive an antique Jag, and are always concerned about secure parking. No worries there. For a daily charge the valet parking is excellent and the underground facility had large spaces. The pool here has the freeway behind it, and at first we wondered how it would be as we had to walk through the parking garage second level to access it, but no worries! The pool is quite large for hotel pools, with very nice landscaping and furniture. Clean as a whistle, too. There is a bar in the hotel, but we did not get a chance to try it. The staff were all exceptionally friendly and helpful, especially Ricky outside, when it came to helping us with cabs or the car. The location of this hotel is stupendous, right in front of the Santa Monica Pier, and literally across the street from where the Pier starts. We took A DAY IN LA tour on the Rastabus while here, and again, the pickup spot was a five-minute walk from our hotel. There are tons of restaurants, and the 3rd street promenade is a block away. Could not imagine a better location! The worst thing I could say about the hotel is that parts of it feel a bit dated, but this was not an issue as the hotel was exceptionally clean. We would most certainly stay here again, and would recommend it highly to friends.
