Room opened up on to pool via french doors, which should have been good, but everytime we opened the curtains there was a table full of people about a meter from the doors looking straight at us so it felt a little intrusive. Although the hotel and room was clean and tidy, the room had an unfinished look about it, but by far the biggest problem was the extremely noisy fridge, this was in a cupboard which acted as an amplifier. In addition, we could hear every step, door slamming, toilet flushing, shower and bath emptying from the room above. Most of the guests we spoke to on the ground floor mentioned this also. We are vegetarians and although the buffet breakfast was fresh, it was quite basic and the only hot option we had was scrabbled egg and toast, everything else was meat. However, just to balance this comment, there was a choice of cereals, bagels and cakes - so perhaps this is jus a 'cultural' thing?
We stayed at BWP for 4 nights on the final leg of a west coast visit. Great location for Hollywood, Universal, Beverley Hills, Comedy Store, House of Blues and short distance from Santa Monica. Hotel was clean and tidy with a very pretty pool/courtyard area. All the staff we engaged with were friendly, polite and helpful.
