I stayed for two days at this hotel while attending a friend's wedding in Santa Monica.
All the positives:
* most beautifully decorated hotel I've been in for a while. (Sure, some larger hotels go for obviously luxe decor, like chandeliers, but these don't have the perfect layout of the rooms with their astoundingly comfortable beds, delightful chaises, and handy his-and-hers desks. Plus, the tiled floors and other elegant touches make this is lovely place.)
* layout. The firepits, koi waterfalls, and ease of finding everything you need? Marvelous.
* friendly staff. From the moment we pulled up to valet, someone was available to give us a hand. Immediately and with as much helpfulness as possible.
* handy location. If you need to be in Santa Monica, this is the place! You're walking distance to the beach and the pier . . . or go the other direction to the 3rd Street Promenade.
* all the stuff I didn't get a chance to try! I can't rate the restaurant, the bar, the fitness facilities, nor the staff's willingness to help me with things like (for example) getting my clothes pressed. This doesn't reflect on the hotel, but rather on the fact that I was only there for a short period.
* location. The "ocean-view" rooms barely give you a sliver of the ocean in the view, but that's all the ever claimed anyway.
* gorgeous as it is, I can't afford this sort of place on a regular basis. Having been spoiled by the Fairmont Miramar, I shall doubtless be disappointed by other hotels.
