We spent four days here just before Christmas. Situated on a quiet street between Santa Monica Blvd and Sunset Blvd, we found the location satisfactory. Buses run regularly along Santa Monica Blvd between Downtown and Santa Monica.
The hotel is unique and has lots of character. The garden upstairs is lovely and peaceful and the food is good. Unfortunately the pool area was being refurbished when we stayed, but from the looks of it, we would have enjoyed it also!
Some comments stated rooms were dark... we'd agree, but felt this only added to the character of the room. As we stayed in winter, the gas fire was a nice touch. The room was clean and comfortable. Our room didn't have coffee making facilities, but a quick call to reception had a coffee maker in the room, stocked with fresh pods daily!
The staff were lovely. The crew on the front desk always greeted us with a smile and good advice on things to do. The staff in the Butterfly Bar and Garden were wonderful...
A unique hotel that we would happily stay at again!
