My Fiance's company has an office right in Warner Center and they transferred him down (from northern cali) to temporarily work for the Woodland Hills Office (stays in LA range from 3-5 days/week)
After much searching (there aren't many options in WH) and price checking (how the hilton can charge so much is beyond me...)
We decided he would stay at the Best Western (decision made for location and that there is a fridge and microwave in every room-his company is picking up the tab for the stay..but even if we were paying for it ourselves i would say its better than the overpriced hotels in warner center)
I visited him this past weeekend so i am writing the review on his behalf.
The rooms are CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN. the halls are clean clean clean, the lobby is clean clean clean (and cozy for that matter.)
it felt like i could take my shoes off and walk around (even though i would NEVER, haha)
the layout is nice. you park in front of your room. the bottom level is at street level-doors rigth off the parking lot, the upstairs rooms are along inside hallways.
The bathroom sink is out in the room, standard shower/tub and toilet with a door, even a full length mirror in the bathroom, score!
free wireless- just ask the lobby for an ethernet cable.
location: perfect right on ventura blvd. across the street are some excellent staples: Jerry's Famous Deli- a bit overpriced, but good eats, noahs bagels, jamba, coffee bean/tea leaf,western bagel, ralphs grocery store, rite-aid, starbucks subway, chipotle, blockbuster, gnc..and his personal favorite- California Pita for the FRO-YO!!!
whoever said they felt "unsafe" or it was "ghetto" has never spent a minute in San Fernando Valley. born and raised there i can definitely assure you that, while there may be a few homeless hanging around...its your typical valley neighborhood.
bottom line- for a business traveler, someone visiting family in the area or a quick get-away (they do have a pool..and the Topanga Plaza is outta this world for shopping...right around the corner-too far to walk though) it is SPOT ON...for $109/night...cheap! its def worth the visit. adn its so cute too!
