This hotel was pretty good for what it was. My husband and I found the hotel on Expedia and booked two nights over the weekend at about $210 a night. We thought the price was pretty good for the location of the hotel, and for a Friday and Saturday night. It's in a decent neighborhood within walking distance to the Beverly Center and other restaurants. There is no self-parking which is not uncommon for a small boutique hotel, so you can either park in a metered spot or valet. Valet was about $26 a day after taxes, and we thought it was worth it. The valet staff was always on top of it. We got our car in and out of valet several times and each time we would just call ahead of time to have our car ready and our car was always right outside within 15 min. Our room at the hotel was not bad. It was on the first floor and opened into a small courtyard facing other rooms. That said, it was not very private if you opened the curtains so we kept the curtains closed most of the time which made the room dark. And the fact that all the lights in the room were fluorescent lighting didn't help, but overall, that didn't bother us. The room was really tiny and the bathroom was pretty small too with virtually no counter space so I had to put all of our toiletries and my makeup on the desk outside of the bathroom. But again, this is not uncommon for a small boutique hotel and it wasn't that big of a deal to us. The light in our bathroom made an annoying buzzing sound and the bed was a little firm and stiff for my tastes though my husband thought the bed was comfortable. The walls were not sound proof as we could hear noises all around us including doors shutting and people talking constantly. When we first checked in, we smelled pot in the hallway and the smell seeped into our room because there isn't a great seal around the door which I'm sure is also what contributed to how easily we could hear outside noises. I called the front desk about the pot smell and they took care of it right away. Overall though, the room was clean and updated pretty well for, what I could tell was, a really old building. It was also nice that they provided complimentary wifi even though it was kind of slow, breakfast in the mornings, and wine and cheese receptions in the evenings. The staff was also really friendly and courteous. All in all, the hotel and the location were pretty good for the money.
