Seven of us (ages 17 to 80) in four rooms for six nights last July. First things first. The location is terrific stepping out from the foyer and seeing palm trees and the Pacific. We are not very demanding and therefore the valet parking and the cost of it around $20 a day was steep particulary when the more notice you give you want the car the longer it takes because those last minute I'm in a rush types put on pressure to get their cars immediately.
The staff are really nice and the beds are to die for. But you can arrive back at five o' clock and your room hasn't been made up. I was on a non smoking floor but when the next room had a 'gathering' and the smoke was coming through to our room at 2 in the morning the management response was to open the fire doors and let the smoking and the noise continue. Also be careful with the ocean views. We got upgraded but couldn't see the ocean for the palm trees blocking our view. Ocean view means get up above the trees. Also front of the hotel means street noise into the early hours of the morning.
But you get newspapers and internet in the foyer and they're seeking to put in restaurant facilities in the basement to expand their licence. If you care about nice staff, great beds and a really good location then this place is for you.
It was my mistake to go for what is really a business hotel where the bathrooms are small which for almost a week's stay becomes a nuisance. My bill of just under $5,000 dollars entitles me to have some opinions and despite what I've written it is not all bad.
