“Close to mall and shops”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is across the road from Del Amo mall and close to LAX. It is also used by flight crew. The outdoor pool is small, as is the fitness center. The room decor is old and the bathroom small. However, the price and location is good if you need to be near LAX and also want to enioy the predominantly-Japanese Asian cuisine.
There are numerous strip malls and discount retailers. I prefer staying here to the more fashionable West LA as it is easy here to float in a sea of rampant consumerism punctuated by boba tea and sushi.
Avoid the rooms at the back around the pool as they are noisy. I grade based on my limited expectations. If this was the Beverly Hilton I would be more severe but it's not and the price reflects this.

The hotel was adequate. The front entrance is deceiving. I was not sure if it was the front entrance or not. Reception area is small and jammed up with event guests. The bathroom is the smallest I have ever seen other than on a cruise ship. My hand actually brushed against the sink bowl bottom when flushing the toilet! Air conditioning did not work and the bathroom had residual hairs from the previous guest. Not satisfied.

The hotel is about 2~3 miles from the coast. 30 minutes to downtown, 30 minutes to santa monica and 30 minutes to long beach. Its a really good location to visit most of the regions in LA. The only thing that bothered me was that, the hotel does not provide microwave. You can't really heat up your food if you have leftovers from a huge party or something like that.

Very pleasant hotel. Pool area and exercise area particularly pleasant. Water feature/Japanese style inn in pool area welcome. Would have been great if the Peet's coffee kiosk was open on the weekend.

Checkin in the very ealry morning was a bit of a drag due to the short time between reservation and arrival (2 h). The room was very clean and good WIFI. TV working well with HBO. The bathroom was superclean. B'fast on exec floor on the simple side but generally OK.

Nice hotel. Clean. Quiet. Well appointed. Front desk staff could use some polish. Made the mistake of parking under a tree. Car was full of ants the next morning. Outside of those two minor issues everything else was as or better than expected.
