Whenever we travel to Los Angeles, we prefer to stay in the Santa Monica area. While it's nice to stay at a hotel near the pier and beaches, you'll pay more and and get less in return. The Ambrose Hotel, while not on or near the beach, is a short drive away and offers far greater value for your hard earned money. It is a boutique hotel and simply fantastic. There's free, self-service underground parking with elevator access directly to your floor and a small Japanese style garden with miniature koi pond that provides an oasis of peace and quiet in the heart of downtown Santa Monica. There's even a small alcove with a bamboo grove tucked away alongside the hotel that offers a private spot to sit and relax with a cup of coffee in the morning or a beverage of your choice at the end of the day. The rooms are nicely furnished with everything you need to include fine toiletries, luxury bathrobes,an in-room safe, and a full size walk-in shower. The walk-out balconies available with some of the rooms also offer a nice, quiet place to relax and unwind as well. Breakfast is continental and for those of you that prefer a full service style breakfast, there's a very well serviced IHOP about a 5 minute walk away. There's a Walgreen's across the street, a Whole Foods around the corner, and plenty of other stores and restaurants a walk around the block away. After searching over the past few years for a hotel in LA that offers good service and comfortable lodging at a a reasonable price, and throws in free self-service covered parking on top of that, we finally struck gold and we'll be back.
