Modern & Hip Hotel A+++

Hotel is very close to the airport, the front desk staff are very friendly and helpful. Beds were comfortable, and rooms were very clean. Only 2 downsides were the miniature size ironing boards, I wouldve preferred a full-size, and the valet rate of $22 is the only parking option. Aside to those two downers this hotel is GREAT! I would definitely stay here again. Its within minutes of Loyola University, plenty of coffee shops, Bank Of America, and FroYo shop next door, and Santa Monica and Venice within Minutes down the street!

We love it at first sight! Really contemporary. We felt really comfortable. A unique style. We just found there was no self-parking close to the hotel.

Great product, poor people !

I love this place because it helps me keep visitors close to home and its a straight shot between LAX and home. But the personell service wasnt great this time. They always had a tone like I owed them something. I have personally stayed here and dont remember it being like that. I also wanted to send a SHOUT-OUT to the mangers, there should be more "little things" for customer. How do you guys NOT HAVE a map of L.A ? Or tourist guides ? Or anything that is helpful for that matter. This is still a great value for the $$ but please dont slip into comformity.

I booked this room through a special value, and I believe I got a good deal. Clean rooms, great staff. Was able to take a cab to local areas like Santa Monica and LAX with ease.

The Custom

Girls weekend. We wanted to be closer to the beach towns. Turns out a cab was only $15 to Abbot Kinney in Venice beach so that was good. Nice clean modern and for $85 a night you can't beat it. Nice colored neon lights that change are awesome but the rest of the lighting was terrible...too dark! Otherwise nice decor and clean. We wished there was a hot tub but didn't make it over to the pool.
