Very Nice Hotel
Very nice place to stay, will be on our return to list when in Santa Monica.

Lukewarm response....
For paying over 500 a night you would think that simple amenities would be available without having to ask via special request, like ice.... and hair dryer.....etc. It was a small room but very nice - the ocean view wasn't much of a view considering we were on 2nd floor. Food is crazy expensive here also. The staff was very congenial and welcoming however, and we did not wait for a bellhop or the valet whatsoever, so that was excellent. In addition to the room charge also note it is 42 a day for parking as well as 25 for amenities fee - I mean, really? It was a so-so experience considering those factors.

I called at 5pm day of arrival for a 11pm check in. Upon arrival, front desk was not prepared. In addition, they gave a wrong room and tried telling me it was an upgrade. After an hour or so, I finally set in to my room. The following morning, I wanted to inform a manager, and the "director of rooms" was available. I informed him and he argued with me that a 2 bedroom unit is actually a 1 bedroom executive suite. Then informed him I have a certified mail coming in for Saturday delivery. I saw him at 2pm, and he said nothing came in. I went for a late lunch and had the thought of tracking my package and come to find out that it was delivered at 11am. I stayed at this property May 5th thru 7th. and yet the manager of the property has not even reached out. I just now send them an email complaining about the experience. I never have time to write reviews, but this property deserves every negative comment- uncomfortable beds, old showers and bathrooms, lack of trained staff, just 2 elevators, and they expect you to form a line since weekend nights rooftop has out side guests. I mean just terrible terrible terrible, oh wait sliders and wings cost $60 for room service!
