“Great Value and Staff with Comfort”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

I stay at the Amarano at least once a month since it was called the Graciela-many years ago.
The staff and management are very helpful and make you feel very at home every visit.
I must say that I agree with another review and say it's time to refresh the older rooms...they just opened a new wing in the last year and those rooms are beautiful and new.
I have one final comment and that is the bath towels seem to have become less absorbent lately-minor detail but I think it is time to revisit that.
I highly recommend this hotel for location, comfort and a great staff with very good prices for rooms.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back on a high floor are nice and quiet

Once again we made our 2nd visit to the wonderful Hotel Amarano and was treated from the outside valet's, front desk, restaurant & bar service with the same lovely service and attention as we did on our first stay of 5 nights.
We booked 4 nights, room was spic and span, housekeeping service immaculate. If I had one request, it would be that we had more towels! (3 bath towels is not enough for 2 people) haha, but all we had to was to request, and of course we had them.
You cannot beat the price for this quality hotel. And we are in the music business and have traveled for over 23 years on the road. I have stayed in more hotels than I have in my own home.
We'll be back, it is the only place we will stay in LA, and it's close to everything.
p.s. I do not work for this hotel nor do I have any family that is connected! hahaha

Room Tip: great little fitness room too. We like to stay on the ground floor by the pool area

My husband and I just spent 4 nights at the Amarano. The hotel employees without exception were, helpful, courteous, responsive, friendly and helpful. The hotel is charming and our room was clean and inviting. I recommend this little hotel to anyone who is looking for a get-away.

Room Tip: Request a room in the new wing facing the pool courtyard.

I've stayed here more than a few times over the past decade, but not recently in the past few years. The rooms really could use a fresh coat of paint and most certainly more than "surface cleaning". The light switches are filthy with caked dirt in the crevices, the kitchenette is dirty, base molding dusty, etc. Looks like the maids smear a little glass cleaner around and what's left is left. Juanita (maid service) is delightful.

Ordered a power breakfast for room service which is high protein and comes with a chicken breast. Make that a dry, microwaved and then grilled chicken breast which was 1/3 unedible.

I would not choose to stay here again unless I heard it was much improved. For the price - a lousy value.

My room, in the new wing, was very nice. It was spacious, nicely furnished, colorful, and comfortable. The shower was spacious and very clean. The gym is small, but very nice. There is also a pool and hot tub. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. And there is a fantastic breakfast place right across the street.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new wing.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel on a Saturday night. It seemed like the room wasn't inspected well by maintenance. The TV didn't work, the drain for the shower was clogged and wouldn't drain. And the lightbulb for the shower was not operating properly, it came on and went off, giving my shower a 1970's disco light effect. I've stayed at this location a few times, but this was the only time where there were issues.
