I stayed at this hotel a while back while traveling with my wheelchair bound daughter. We were seeing a specialist in the area.
I could not believe how nice this hotel was for the price. Very Euro/boutique styling.
We were right off of the Miracle Mile, and walking distance from Gino's and the Art Museum. It's right next to the Hancock building.
Only two small quibbles. The elevator is VERY small. (To be expected from an older building, but it was a tight fit for me, the wheelchair, and our bag)
I ordered a room service cheese tray, and it wasn't near as good as the price would have led me to believe. It came wrapped in plastic, and obviously right out of the fridge.
Everything else was very nice.
