After battling the freeway from the airport we made it to our first stop of our LA adventure. Couple of great guys at reception upgraded our room and chatted about a long ago fishing trip in northern Ontario. Needless to say he won us over. Parking was right next door which made it handy and was very reasonably priced. Our room was modern contemporary which is usually not our taste but we loved it. There was a cozy little sitting area with a tv that flipped around in case you wanted to view while in bed. The shower was huge and we loved all the little toiletries that came with it. Can't say enough good things about the bed, soooooo comfy, don't know whether it was because we weren't fighting over space with our 3 felines at home or not, but it was worth some extra zzzzzzz"s. The great thing about this hotel is its location, right beside a walkway that takes you to all the waterfront paths and restaurants. We enjoyed an early morning jog, along with many others on one of the many paths. I kept telling my husband "I could live here". We never got to try the restaurant in the hotel as we wandered down across from the Queen Mary for a super steak dinner, but I could only imagine how good it would have been. We were amazed at how quiet it was while there, mid May and not a sole in sight after 9, which was fine for us but not if you're into night life. Overall a great start to L.A.
