Construction in the hotel

Posted Nov 18, 2014
Pros: The location
Location: Great action at the beach with people walking and biking etc, great restaurants and shopping.
They has construction everywhere and the pool was NOT open. We had to go next door and use the Marriott pool. They said we were not notified of the construction because we did not book directly with the hotel. You could not sit in the lobby because of the jackhammer going all day and the noise was awful. They tried to charge my daughter 10 dollars to work out and I paid 9 dollars for 2 cups of coffee. Way over priced for everything!!!

Construction

Posted Nov 17, 2014
Pros: The hotel is in a great location.
Cons: Once the renovation is done, I'd recommed this hotel.
They are in the middle of a large renovation on the pool deck. Jack hammering concrete from 8am-5pm. Literally. I'd stay away until it is done

Fine. I like Loews, but value not equal to price

Posted Nov 17, 2014
Pros: Staff always nice.
Room=avg; tv not working well; no pool. I didnt know pool was being repaired when I booked. Would have gone somewhere else.

Under construction

Posted Nov 16, 2014
The hotel was under construction during our stay. The jack hammer operated throughout the day up until 5pm. After that noise was through the environment was much better. The staff seemed confused about a lot of changes being implemented. I am sure the hotel will be much better once they are done.

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.

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.
