The Ambrose, Santa Monica
Fair4.0
Great hotel, not great staff
The staff was rude, and inconsiderate, the hotel room itself was awesome... I got double charged for parking as well. Our room was delivered late, when we asked about getting switched to a better room due to lateness they offered a $200 a night upgrade and refused to allow me to speak with a manager. Suboptimal

This is a quiet, upscale hotel in a non-touristy area of Santa Monica. As such, it is restful but not walking distance to much (although there is a light rail stop a couple blocks away). A lot of business travelers, but there is a garage, unlike places nearer the water.

Ambose = A!
Boutique hotel in quiet area of SM with nice services like complimentary happy hour (with a terrific staff) and numerous healthy options at breakfast. Outdoor area for dining is a nice bonus.

I had a short one night stay, but it was very comfortable clean and I would definitely stay here again. There were cute outdoor areas that I would have taken advantage of if I had more time.
