My family and I spent the last six nights there. It is an excellent place to stay. Rooms are VERY quiet. Even the budget rooms are a step above what you'll find elsewhere. The Hotel staff is friendly and kind. Ian checked us in and could not have been more helpful.
The location offers easy freeway access. You are right next to the 405, but you never hear a sound from the freeway due to the well insulated walls. The breakfast is good. It is the usual "free" breakfast food Hotels offer, but was always hot and fresh.
One BIG advantage in staying here is the free things they offer compared to others. Parking is a PITA in the LA area and many places charge extra if you park a car there. For example, The Crown Plaza charged me an extra 150.00 for parking there as well as 5.00 per day for internet service. Not Aries. Parking and internet are free. Enjoy the free parking as I believe it may be the only free parking lot on LA.
The pool is very nice. Secluded and clean. Same for the hot tub.
The restaurant inside the hotel is very good and there is an amazing Italian restaurant across the street. King Keg, across the street, is a nice store to work with.. If you stay here, dont miss the Hawaiian BBQ place next to King Keg. It is unreal. Unique, cheap, and delicious. I coudl have eaten here for every meal. Its THAT good.
For regular food there is also a McDonalds and Carls Jr across the road.
