I can’t but love West Hollywood and Santa Monica Blvd I just wish the Ramada would be updated or upgraded and hired people with spine or charisma or if it’s too hard to ask, professionalism. I thought it was a must to have that.

We wish we would've had more time! West Hollywood is a totally happening spot!! Having the hotel right there made it easy to get out, but there's so much to choose from it was almost too much! We'll be back soon!
