We booked 2 rooms here for one night while visiting family. The beds were very small - full size only. The toilet ran all night. The hotel pool & spa were "not available" for the weekend. The $13 per car charge for parking was ridiculous - we had just come from Disneyland where they only charged $9 per day for parking and that is in crowded LA. One of the worst things about this visit was that the fire alarm went off at 4:15 AM. We were on the fourth floor and it was evidently a hotel wide alarm (according to other patrons I talked to who stayed on other floors). It went off for about 15 seconds and then nothing. By then of course we were up and trying to get it together to evacuate. It was not clear when it stopped if everything was ok or not. There was absolutely no communication from the hotel. No PA system, no staff going to various floors to assure folks it was ok, no automated call -NOTHING. We finally were able to get an answer from the front desk to confirm that it was a "false alarm" When I asked upon checkout if we would receive any discount for this interrupted sleep, I was offered a free coffee. That was it. Another very disturbing thing to me was that we accidently left an item in one of our rooms. It was a very large 5 liter size Tupperware cannister - with a special "I Love You" design on it - a very recent gift from my Granddaughter. I had left it on the table in the room and in our post-fire-alarm-sleep-disturbed haste to depart the hotel, we overlooked it. I called to report it missing after returning home and was told they'd have housekeeping call me. I had to call again 2 days later and they have insisted it was "not found" That disturbs me to think their staff would lift my item. It's unfortunate since this is a location we return to in order to visit family.
