Fabulous location - the best I saw in Santa Monica. The hotel was lovely - clean, techhy, well decorated, comfortable. They need to work out a few kinks with customer service at the front desk - not the personal attention one would expect at a fine boutique hotel. BUT - give it a try.
Also, the photo shown doesn't do it justice. Much better in reality. The Blue Taco restaurant next door was very good too.
Nice touch was complimentary glass of champagne while checking in.
