This historical hotel on the Miracle Mile has taken on a modern look. We stayed in the newly renovated tower. Received an upgrade to a suite (thank you very much). Two rooms were nicely decorated in muted greys and lime green. The space in the bedroom was a little tight between the king size bed and dresser. Not the best for sleepwalkers. Very comfortable bed. The bathroom was spacious with good lighting.
There is one major problem. The heating/ac is very loud and does not shut off when reaching the desired temperature. I had the hotel engineer come to the room and he told me that the units that were put in during the renovation are very powerful and that the thermostat has some kind of energy saving feature that does not switch off. If you are sensitive to this kind of noise, sleeping is impossible. During our stay we did not need the heat/ac so it was fine--in fact, you can open the windows--something I love.
I also highly recommend the restaurant- Michael Jordan's Steak House. Truly fine dining with professional, friendly service.. Three of us had excellent food- both meat, of course, and the ahi was outstanding
