Beautiful hotel. Part of the Shutters properties, crowd is a little older here, but gorgeous lobby and lobby bar overlooking Santa Monica promenade, so still a lovely scene. Nice rooms. Great location. But the pool, which I only saw in the evening and early morning, was fabulous. On a deck overlooking the ocean. What a setting!
Service was merely okay, nothing outstanding, perfunctory at best; I frankly expected a bit more from a place like this. And like Shutters, they'll nickel and dime you where they can. But still, an nice, nice place.
