We accepted our travel agent's recommendation to here, even though I wanted to stay across the road at the Crowne Plaza. To be honest, my regular choice hotel in LA is the Sofitel next to the Beverley Centre but the price this time was just too much in comparison.
The hotel was clean. The staff were friendly.
I was informed at check-in that the bar was closed until further notice because they had not been able to hire a new bartender after the previous one had resigned. For a hotel in a busy tourist metropolis - this was not a promising sign. But too be honest, it pretty much personified the style of the hotel. They basically viewed themselves as a laid back, off the grid locale which didn't go to too much effort to impress - but they charged accordingly. That's pretty much what our stay was like.
The room was very small for a suite, the valet was often slow because it was understaffed. The lifts took forever at busy times.
The staff ALWAYS tried to cater to our needs. The hotel was well presented and did not feel neglected despite its obvious age. Pico Blvd is a self-sustained main street, close to everything and the hotel is essentially located on Pico. So for a well located hotel which is very reasonably priced and clean - this is a winner. If you want more, then pay more; but for the money, you really won't find better; especially given how expensive LA can be.
There isn't much more to say other than the TVs are modern enough. There is a self service laundry and even a pool and gym, but they are not glamorous. The fancy deli across the street delivers - even though it is about 5 feet away.
