The hotel is beautiful and in a really good location – just blocks from the beach, great shopping, and dining. The views from the Penthouse bar and restaurant are stunning. But that bar gets CRAZY! I got little to no sleep due to the party people coming and going at all hours of the morning both nights that I stayed here. One night I ended up waiting through two crowds of people who were going to the bar, just so I could get up to my room. On that topic, it doesn't seem to be very safe that there is no key card access to any of the guest room floors. Anyone who wants to get to any of the floors is free to at any time. Basically, I didn't feel very safe or happy to be in this hotel. When I checked out and was asked how my stay was, I told them that it was very loud and hard to sleep. The woman at the desk just said, oh yeah, probably just people leaving the bar. I sure didn't feel like they cared about me as a guest. And it's NOT a cheap hotel for them to treating guests that way. Overall, I was disappointed. At least, the hotel is located in a good area.
I got an “ocean view room” which was sort of a misnomer. It was really a view of a parking lot and if you looked to the right you could see the ocean. It should have been called an “Ocean view bathroom”, because the view from my bathroom was stunning. The room was very clean and the cleaning staff did a great job. The décor was beautiful and the room size was just about right for me, alone. Unfortunately, for the money, I would choose a different hotel next time I’m visiting Santa Monica.
