A Small Oasis in West Hollywood
After a recent business trip in Santa Monica I moved over to Short Stories in West Hollywood to be closer to friends. It was my first time staying at the new property and it will definitely not be the last. As I didn't have a car with me this trip it was super important to have a great walking friendly location and you can't beat where Short Stories is located just off of Fairfax and 3rd, close to a Trader Joes, Whole Foods and tons of shopping. The hotel itself was beautiful, trendy and clean and I so appreciated having the bit of extra room that the Junior Suite provided with the couch area. I chose to have breakfast on site both days of my stay and was able to enjoy the outdoor courtyard area with a book before I started my day. I'm already looking forward to my next stay!
