It is relatively new hotel in the heart of Torrance. The location is great and safe. The Police station is just the next block south of the hotel if you need them. The room is practical with modern decor. It reminds me of the European hotel room. Our room is small and quiet enough except occasionally we can hear muffle sound from next door talking away late at night. However the A.C. is so loud that it drowned out the noise. Although this hotel is on the busy street, Torrance Blvd., we do not hear the street noise even with the A.C. turn off. The kitchen area have refrigerator, microwave,coffee maker, and sink but no utensil. If you decided to bring foods into the room,you may want to ask the restaurant to provide you with utensils or paper plates. We have plenty of towels and amenities. The shower has a shower curtain on it so the water can easily get splatter all over the floor of the bathroom. Just be careful when you step into the bathroom after the shower. A small reading light on both side of the bed would be helpful. The room has plenty of lights over head but they are too bright if one wants to read at night without disturbing the person sleeping next to him or her. The hotel offered DirecTV channels with good selection for both adult and kid. In term of location, you can not beat it. It is in the center of town. This hotel is within walking distance to the Del Amo mall. Del Amo is one of the biggest mall around. It has everything from shopping,food, and movie theater. If you need grocery or medicine, you can walk a block away to Albertson supermarket/pharmacy (North of the hotel). A lot of restaurants coffee shops, and banks to choose from in the area,all within walking distance. Overall we have a pleasant stay. Hope you enjoy your stay too.
