I booked a total of three separate stays with this hotel over the course of my 8 week vacation and each time the hotel lived up to my expectations. Firstly the hotel is not your typical 'modern' hotel, which alarmed me at first but it actually has a unique charm to it that I found oddly appealing.
The rooftop pool area is just lovely, it's the perfect mix of sun, water and calming and relaxing! The hotel is located one street back from WeHo's main strip, so you're close to the action but far enough away to enjoy some peace and quiet.
The rooms are equipped with modern applicances, including flat screen TV, fireplace, split-system air conditioning and some rooms with coffee machines. I'll also point out that the added benefit of free wifi is another plus, combined with the friendly staff, they all contribute to a fabulous experience with this hotel.
I will however note that some minor issues with the hotel should be taken into consideration. Firstly, the elevator (one only) is extremely slow and old, so I tended to use the stairs to access my room. The hotel is old, and it uses this in it's eclectic charm, but I feel that possibly they may be an excuse to mask a run down hotel. The bath in one of the rooms was extremely dirty, clearly stained and needed to be resprayed or at the least a decent clean!
Also, you feel a bit dirty sitting on the couch or bare feet on the carpet, they too could use some thorough cleaning or replacing! I think that if it wasn't for the location, and the staff I would probably rate this hotel around 2-3 because it doesn't meet the 'hospitality' standards of what one would consider 4 star. However, this hotel is a boutique hotel and well priced so you need to consider this!
I'd likely stay with this hotel again, I'm impressed that they managed to maintain consistent service during 3 separate visits and that alone encourages me to return again!
