Stayed here right before the holidays in Dec 2013 for one night with family and couldn't have been happier with our choice.
The service: exceptional service separates this property from others in its class. Every employee couldn't have been more friendly, front desk extremely helpful and accommodating. I had a last minute room change (and got an upgraded room with a huge balcony on top floor) and needed a feather free room and they had the change over completed in record time.
The room: clean, comfy bed (had a rollaway in a king room and still felt roomy), HUGE balcony in our room on top floor
The location: A very short walk to the 3rd Ave Promenade and the Pier
The bar/food: basic but solid menu with average hotel pricing served in lobby bar as well as restaurant
The lobby/outdoor space: well appointed and comfortable furniture with heaters and good access to the beach, limited view of beach from outdoor patio.
Required valet parking: at $35 (which is average for city parking) it is always disappointing to have to add that high fee into room cost when price shopping
Wifi fee: $15 daily wifi fee (I think this should be free at property of this class)
Cost: Pricey with out the AAA discount I was able to use (I wouldn't have booked without it)
When I stay in the Santa Monica area in the future I will definitely look to stay in this hotel again if I can get a decent rate.
