We stayed here for 8 nights in September. The hotel itself is not new but has an air of quality about it if that makes any sense. The place is immaculate.
We were greeted at the entrance and our bags taken to the room. The car was parked by the valet staff and we were shown to the reception. The check in must be the most professional, courteous and efficient I have ever experienced. Unfortunatley I did not note the name of the young lady but she was fantastic.
We were shown to our room in the Ocean Tower, which was on the very end of the block overlooking the ocean, with Malibu to the right and the Pier to the left. We thought it would be noisy with the road outside but that was not the case, when the balcony door was closed at night we could hear nothing. The balcony was large with the sun from about 2pm,ish. Shortly after arriving in the room we were greeted with a plate of fresh chilled fruit, a very nice touch.
The room although small was an big enough for the two or us. It was quite old fasioned but very clean with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was also small but very nice and the toiletries were excellent.
We spent a lot of time around the pool which is in a lovely location within the beautifull grounds. Although it is small with about 30 sunbeds we always managed to get a good spot. The pool service is very good with a decent snack menu available.
We ate several times in the lobby bar where the food is of good quality and the service good.
The hotel is located on top of the cliffs overlooking the ocean, 3rd Street Promenade is just a couple of blocks away or 5/10 mins walk, with plenty of shops and places to eat. Santa Monica Pier is a good 20 mins stroll along the top of the cliffs.
All of the staff we passed/met greeted us and were very helpfull and courteous indeed. I can certainly reccomend this hotel. We will be back.
