Let me begin by calibrating anyone staying in this part of LA. No decent hotel is cheap. Plain and simple. $300 a night is entry level into the luxury hotel market. That said, for the price, Mosaic delivers on its promise.
The hotel sits on a quiet street just off the intersection of Santa Monica and Wilshire Blvd. This places you about a 20 minute walk / 4 minute drive from the center of Beverly Hills and about a 20 minute drive from Santa Monica. Great location.
Another advantageous aspect of the hotel is the parking. There is ample parking within the premises and it is all on the ground floor which means that access to your car is quick and convenient.
The hotel lobby is small, tasteful and easy to navigate. There is a desk to check in, a small bar and a small restaurant. The overall decor is earthy tones and comfortable. Check-in is fast and pleasant.
The rooms are not huge, but provide sufficient area for two people to comfortable co-exist. The decor is pleasant and comfortable with a modern feel. The bathrooms are large enough, but more importantly the shower has great pressure which is important. Lastly, the shower products are Bulgari and very good.
The rooms are equipped with all the amenities you would expect from a hotel of this caliber including a Bose stereo, flat screen TV, robes, etc. It also has a very comfortable bed and perfect pillows. I stay in a lot of hotels and this is not always a given, but these beds were some of the best.
On the negative side, the hotel is a bit noisy in the evenings & mornings when people are up and about. We stayed on the third floor and could hear the footsteps above us. Nothing that kept me up, but it was unexpected.
We had one lunch and two breakfasts in the restaurant. The food is above average, but the service was excellent. The breakfast menu offers a lot of diversity from simple grains to eggs benedict. No reason to go out for breakfast. The lunch and dinner menu is a bit more limiting. Given the plethora of restaurants within walking distance, this is not a factor. If you choose to stay in, the restaurant is fine.
From check-in to check-out and everything in between, the service was consistently excellent. Every member of the staff was pleasant and accommodating. You actually get the feeling they like working there and are proud of their hotel. This can make all the difference.
Overall, the experience was very good, the accommodations were exactly as advertised, the location was perfect and the bed was comfortable. What more could you ask!
