It was close to the beach and bus connections, We wished for Bottled water. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
One of my favorite spots in Santa Monica. Great views of the Santa Monica pier. The rooms are very retro and the roof bar is one of best. I would recommend everyone and anyone to try out this Hotel.
great staff and friendly, odd site parking is ok - just read the signs, super close to Sana Monica pier
Loved it , nice enough to let us check out late , felt safe needed code to get in through gates up to each floor. Peaceful, beautiful little set up .
Loved being accommodated despite COVID-19. Was a little confused about our room booking and hoped that we would be upgraded or offered more amenities since it was our honeymoon but overall great experience and would come back again.
