As an actor and award winning producer, director, writer, I chose to live in Northern California and for decades I have commuted to and from Los Angeles area, staying from the finest hotels to some shady hotels. My recent trip, I came across BlueStem Hotel and to my surprise, I have now discovered my home away from home.... This independent hotel provided me all the luxuries that I would normally experience in some five star hotels at a price beyond comparison. The wonderful details of the facility makes staying here very special... The staff and management made me feel so welcome beyond compare. I sincerely enjoyed my stay and will make this my destination of choice when ever visiting the Los Angeles area. Thank you Richmond to you and your staff for making me feel so special.....

We were attending a wedding in Palo Verdes, and came across this cute small boutique hotel, newly opened. It was a motor lodge, totally renovated with outdoor seating areas with couches, chairs, fireplaces and fountains-with beautiful plants all surrounding the outdoor space. Whoever designed the inside and outside has outstanding decorating taste. They did an amazing job in the common areas as well as the rooms. The rooms are regular hotel size rooms, but everything is new. Service was like a 5 star hotel. Priya Soni (manager) gave me a special gift as she knew it was my birthday and Lauren (front desk) gave us some great recommendations for the area. The general manager always said hello and asked how we were doing every time we saw him. All the staff were extremely courteous and were cleaning or or doing something to accomodate a guest. The breakfast buffet served from 6:30am-9:30am had a variety of fresh fruits, pita bread with toppings, yogurts, breads, cereals, juices, eggs (omelet style and scrambled), sausages and hash browns. The breakfast had a European/Mediterranean feel. The only issue we had was that no room service was given, but that may have been our fault as they may have confused the sign on the door. Sepulveda Blvd street is noisy, and you can sometimes hear the traffic in the outdoor seating area, but we did not hear any noise in the rooms except the housekeepers cars rolling on the cement walkway. Blackout shades make the rooms really dark-awesome for sleeping. Keurig coffee makers in the rooms, with nice soap, shampoos and body lotions. We attended a party at the Doubletree on Hawthorne, and I'd stay at the Bluestem again hands down!!-- when we come back to Torrance! Thank you for a wonderful stay--

Needed a last minute place to stay for the weekend- boy did I choose the right place! Hotel is tucked away nicely, very nondescript from the front. But as you can see from the pictures, it's absolutely amazing. The check-in area with the outdoor lounge was refreshing and great to relax by. The room was nearly brand new. Everything is very stylish, hip, and of high quality. Bed and pillows were uber comfortable, the room was immaculately clean, and the room just gave off a very positive vibe. Would highly recommend heading out to the outdoor lounge/patio at night, it's a great atmosphere with the fires and lighting. Truly amazing. This is probably one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in for the price point.
