One of the best kept secrets in Hollywood! Located directly on a quieter section of the broadwalk, just a few steps from the beach. A beautiful ocean vista from turret style windows with bright sunshine throughout the day followed by the sound of waves & coastal breezes at night.
We LOVED the pink color of the hotel. Our suite was decorated with simple beach decor, some historical Hollywood photographs, large mirrors to enhance the lighting, window blinds, beach chairs, towels, and a few basic kitchen appliances...
Staff on site were all very pleasant, sociable and accommodating.
It is an older hotel, so the electric and hot water heater are not as one would expect in a larger new hotel,.... not really an issue unless you are looking to take a long hot shower or use more than a few appliances at once.
We only had one concern....A big downside for those travelers like ourselves that prefer open windows was the Tiki Bar located on site.
The noise and the smell of smoke from patrons was somewhat of a disappointment considering the price of our room. (There are wall AC units in both the bedroom and the common area of the suite, but unless its a humid off-season visit, they'd seem to take away from the simple aspect of enjoying the coastal breeze at a beachfront hotel, and they are a bit loud when turned on) Some may like the aspect of having a Tiki Bar on site, and it is quite a unique setting on the broadwalk, but for those like ourselves seeking quiet in the evenings (or even a family with young children), its definitely something to be aware of....
Our only suggestions for improvement would be to make the entire establishment (including the common areas & Tiki Bar ) NON SMOKING, and to limit the happy hour to early evening hours to enhance the tranquil location of this wonderful little boutique hotel.
