We were pretty high maintenance guests. We didn't mean to be but it seems like it was just one thing after another with us - arriving just as restaurant was closing due to massive LA traffic issues, a very sick person in our party with some special requests as a result, asking for something to be stored in the hotel refrigerator for us to take to our daughter at college, leaving an important camera part in the hotel room and asking for it to be sent. They could not have been nicer or more accomdating, meeting all our needs with a smile. As a previous reviewer stated - it is an old hotel so rooms are small, maybe a little too plain and small bathrooms but the outside and insided common areas are plentiful and really nice. No coffee makers or refrigerators in the rooms. Also, one of the buildings has a super steep staircase leading to 3 upstairs rooms. If you have trouble with stairs ask for a ground floor or cottage room. Only suggestion to management is to put a mirror in the room itself in addition to the one in the bathroom so two people can be getting ready at same time (we were in the Lotus cottage). Would like to return when weather is warmer so we can dine outside and enjoy the grounds.
