After spending 4 great nights at Loews Hollywood, we were looking forward to a "splurge"night at Santa Monica. Upon arrival we were told our room wasnt ready, which was fine we just hired some bikes and went for a ride down the beach and waited for the phone call. It never came, when we checked back 2 hrs later, they had "upgraded" us to a 1 bedroom suite from a beach view room. The suite was pokey, on the 3rd level, below reception, and our view was of a building and some of the beach, I felt ripped off since we had paid over $400 for this night. The attitude of the staff sucked, and basically we were told that the room was worth $1000 and to make the most of it. Its not that much on the website by the way.I think they sold our room again and moved us. We ate in and had a meal delivered, the food was lovely. We then got a phone call to come straight to reception and give a credit card as they had forgotten to swipe one!! They had our car parked in valet, it wasnt like we were going anywhere!!! the only nice person who worked there was the guy around the pool, the rest of staff were pompus and acted like they didnt want to be there. It's a nice place but lots of little things going wrong made it an unpleasurable stay and we would not waste our money here again.
