Very swish, too swish for us IMHO.

Posted Oct 13, 2014
On the north side facing the pier and allyway the balcony was 30cm wide which wasn't great (if you like people watching you can see some homeless going through the bins - no problem but I know some people will be put off by this so don't book rooms overlooking the side street (didn't bother me - kinda like seeing some real life), but the view of the sunset was awesome. amazingly comfy bed, his and hers dressing gowns, fully stocked mini bar and snack draw (expensive- $5.5 for a 500ml water etc). Great hotel and location (next to the pier). Not sure if I personally would stay again- I'm abit more working class:) but no complaints and great staff!

Great location

Posted Oct 13, 2014
We enjoyed one night here before our flight home from LAX. The concierge was very helpful and recommended and booked a great restaurant for dinner. We had a pacific view king on the 3rd floor. Request a higher floor if available. Pool was ok and service there was very very slow. Cocktails were average.

Pros: Location and the hotel itself. Very relaxing.
Cons: Elevator to all floors. Larger pool area though not necessary.
Location: Pier 66, beach, walking paths, and art galleries.
The hotel made Los Angeles a great place to be. All good.

Very nice weekend getaway

Posted Sep 30, 2014
Pros: The pool and the lounge on the terrace with the awesome view to the ocean.
Cons: The rooms need a renovation.
Location: The hotel is just minutes away from Universal Studios, Warner Bros Studios, Hollywood Blvd or Beverly Hills.
This hotel is a beautiful getaway. You can enjoy the awesome view to the ocean just from the pool or the hot tub on the terrace. The staff is very friendly. Just the rooms might need a bit renewal.

Pros: I liked that it is dog friendly but most hotels allow dogs.
THe staff was rude for the most part. THe hotel was dirty. For a 5 star price , it was more than disappointing. I will deftly stay at Shutters or Casa Del Mar next time. I love those two hotels.

Tired old bird that needs a face lift.

Posted Aug 27, 2014
Pros: The location, and the staff try hard to accommodate.
Cons: EVERYTHING!!!! Even the pool needs to be enlarged and re-done.
Location: Ferris wheel and walk on the beach
Great location but about 10 years past its prime. Some hot hotelier (Hello, SLS?) should snap this puppy up and give it a major overhaul that this killer locale deserves. The location is excellent, however, the rooms are old tired. The pipes squeak when you shower, there aren't enough outlets to charge multiple devices, the menu is boring and food mediocre. We checked out 3 days early on a 4 night stay as at $550 / night we were getting hosed.
