“Very good value + great refurbishment = excellent place to stay”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We were looking for a place to stay on a road trip from SF to LA. Calabasas was a last minute choice and I selected the Anza based on the reviews, pictures and price. I was impressed!

The good:
1. The rooms are very big and have recently been updated - they are super cool.
2. The bed linens are good and the rooms clean and tidy
3. The reception area is very nice, there are two Apple Macs, a pile of WSJ newspapers, a well stocked cafe/bar and lots of seating space
4. The room rate includes parking and WiFi
5. There is a nice gym and pool area

The less good:
1. The corridors haven't been refurbished, they have horrid patterned yellow/orange carpet from around 1973 and the bedroom doors are a dreadful beige - I guess the USD 6m refurb hasn't yet reached the corridors.
2. The bed and pillows were very soft - much too soft for my liking (I think the beds are designed to be soft rather than having softened through age/wear and tear.
3. The 101 runs behind the hotel so you might have a problem with road noise - best to check your room allocation before you book
4. The cleaning staff didn't thoroughly clean our room and left drinking glasses and coffee condiments lying around.

Another bonus is that the old town of Calabasas and the Commons shopping centre are great to visit and a couple of minutes walk form the hotel. I would definitely stay again and recommend the hotel to family and friends.

Room Tip: Make sure your room doesn't face the 101

We stayed here for 10 nights for our Xmas vacation. We stayed in the hotel prior to their remodel and I can state that it is cleaner and looks very nice and modern. Will definitely return. Also, they are very accommodating to pets. They provided a bed, bowl and treat for our little dog. Thank You!


Room Tip: Staff was very attentive to cleanliness. They did not move any of our belongings.

I stayed overnight at the hotel because I was in town for local wedding. It is centrally located to everything in the area. The staff was fantastic and the accommodations were better than anticipated. A very nice boutique style modern hotel.

The recent remodel of the hotel is quietly contemporary and well done. But even the engineer couldn't figure out the room thermostat, leaving us too warm all night. And while the "rain head" shower is cool looking, it makes rinsing off a too lengthy process, not to mention difficulty in keeping one's hair dry.

We stayed at your hotel a week.12/23/13-12/30/13.Room was lovely. Your choice of cheap tissues is poor. Very poor quality. Go to Kleenex. Much classier. Your toilet paper is fine. Cottonelle. Good quality. Your Do Not Disturb door hanger should be changed. One side should be in blue and say "Do Not Disturb". The other side should be in Red and say "Please make up room". One day we came back to our room at 4:30pm and the room was not made up. All in all we had a very nice stay. Good luck with the hotel. We will stay there again.

Room Tip: As stated before. Your Wi-Fi is also very good.

Room was large and arranged well, visually pleasing in colors and furniture choice. Sliding bath room door, though interesting and different did not provide a snug fit to the door frame, leaving small gaps of space on each side. Shower needs wider glass wall so water does not spray out onto the bathroom floor while in use. Location was excellent. Parking easy. Staff very helpful. Service excellent. The rooms and hallways were clean. We will stay there again and would recommend it to others as the value you receive is worth the cost.

Beautifully refurbished. Very clean. Spacious room. Contemporary decor. Convenient freeway access. Walk to extensive nearby commercial stores/services. Friendly, helpful staff. Very reasonable pet charge. Convenient light fare at bistro/bar for quick meal. The best value for travelers with pets within 50 miles. This will be our regular stop for two-day trips (Arizona-Bay Area) from now on!

Room Tip: Low 100s place you just feet away from bistro, business computers, front desk. Make reservations ear...
