Spent Labor Day weekend here, first time visit. My wife and I stayed in room 2, one of the rooms formerly known as one of the Starlight Rooms. We had a wonderful time,.. the place is full of history and charm, and has a great staff. Marcella checked us in, and she was fantastic. Our room was spotless, and the pool was excellent. We sat poolside in 100 degree heat drinking margaritas and having a great time. The history of this place goes back to 1947 and there are reminders of its former glory everywhere, even signatures of the original builders etched in the concrete by the pool. Hollywood made it a favorite escape in the 1950's, and old photographs attest to the glory days. The new owners are slowly restoring it, and trying to keep it true to its art deco/modernistic look it had back when. The Borrego mountains surround the property and give it a peaceful, tranquil feeling that is hard to beat. Each day we stayed the staff brought us fresh baked macadamia nut cookies..can you beat that? We also had free breakfast coupons at their restaurant which was wonderful, and each night we had drinks and appetizers at the same restaurant, sitting at the bar and imagining how the Hollywood crowd caroused around in the olden days. The pool is absolutely wonderful, clean, fresh, and huge. We saw hummingbirds, rabbits, and squirrels among the towering palms and beautiful landscaping filing with blooming plants of orange and yellow and purple. Our last day we had the experience of being served by Angela, who came in special for the Labor Day holiday and made sure our last few hours were great. We plan to return, no doubt!
