I like where the location of the hotel - easy access to transportation, restaurants and centrally located. I was moved to a less noisy room when I complained about the noise.

Hotel is nice enough, there was hair in my shower and hair on the ceiling of the bathroom (weird). I would say the photos are not a clear portrayal of what you actually get; my room was extremely basic and I rebooked due to a significant drop in price leading up to my stay. I think for the price you pay and the consequent disappointment of not getting what you expected, there should at least be bottled water in the room. The blasting music in the evening was annoying, but it was a holiday weekend (Halloween) and I will admit it was incredibly quiet at night. Appreciated my resort credit and used it for a bottle of champagne... noted that coffee is only free until 8am and then it's $5 a cup which is par for the course in California I suppose. Didn't hate it, didn't love it, not sure I'd stay here again for $250 a night.

Great location but... coffee is only served until 8:00 am - then you have to purchase it for $6 ea. Furniture had broken hinges on two cabinets. 3 valets watched while we struggled to the end of the empty driveway where they parked our car (@ $50 per night valet fee) no assistance offered with bags. Breakfast was included in our room purchase and we had to ask about it every morning and most staff didn’t know about it- I would not have booked for ‘breakfast included’ had I known Charged extra amenities fee when pool and bar were closed for private event one of the days we were there
