Location Atmosphere Star spotting Staff
We loved the location, so close to the beach and pier. We had a pretty good view of the ocean, which is what we wanted and probably the primary reason for choosing this facility. The room was very comfortable and accommodating to all needs/wants.
Being close to the delivery dock. Stayed at another facility just a week before and the beds were better but the bed here was still very good.
The hotel has great views of the beach and is close to the pier and shops. Venice beach is an easy 15min walk along a promenade or the beach.
The pool service was generally pretty slow apart from one particular waiter. Much of the pool area is in the shade and the beds on the sunny side got taken early.
Towels were thin rough and uncomfortable to use. Staff not welcoming.
Great location overlooking the beach, great introduction to our California holiday
Front reception desk staff very good. Helpfull and avalible Bell crew Franki Very good Top staff Fernando Doorman Outstanding in every way.
elivator in poor condition. Has a mind of it's own.
How close the hotel is to everything
There wasn't anything we didn't like
Great location overlooking the beach and Santa Monica Pier. Grand lobby atrium and nice pool area. Pleasant evening meal in the hotel restaurant.
Pool is super small, crowded at all times, no beach stretchers
Hotel in general good.
Ignorant staff and manager at the lobby. Kept us waiting to talk to the manager over 20 min. on our check out. He never showed up or called back on the number we left. Room smelled like mold, bath tub doesn't drain. We 're mid 50' couple. They gave us room in the middle of mid 20' bunch of drunk partying kids, blasting music, screaming, yelling whole night and the whole next morning. For a $500 room per night? They made us feel like we're staying in a trailer park room, right down the beach. We stayed in Loews hotels many times (including this one in Santa Monica). We will never stay at this hotel again.
The location of the hotel was excellent. Near to the beach, Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach, Third Street Promenade. They are all within walking distance. The hotel's pool lounge area is perfect for viewing the beautiful sunset, against the Santa Monica Pier. The pool is a great place for chilling and hanging out in the sun.
Upon entering the room, there was cigarette smell. Called the guest services to check if they have given me a smoking room and I was told that the whole hotel has a no-smoking policy. Told the guest services to inform housekeeping to try and get rid of the smell when they clean up the next day, but guess it's hard since the room is carpeted and air-conditioned. It was slightly better when we kept the windows open during the day.
Wow! Hotel is in a great location. Views from the pool and patio of the pier and beach area. A short walk up the road is the main Santa Monica shopping area. I had a room on the main lobby level (4) which is pool side. Not ocean view but the small patio with this room was fab. The room has all you need for your stay. All staff were friendly and courteous.
Excessive service charge (21%) and tray charge $4 for room service
Site was right on the beach. also very close to all the action.
Price - noise if I opened the window
The staff were very pleasant
Paid wifi and Valet costs
Great location right on beach and close to pier.
Gym and spa Location Bike service at the beach
bar and staff @ the bar extreme high parking fee
We were there in 4 persons, but got place for sleeping for 3 persons: one bed for 2 persons +fold out bed for just 1 person and hotel stated it's a room for 4 persons, which means 3 to sleep together! If you like then OK :-) We got a shaking room over the laundry. And a room next to air-conditioning unit making a racket so you shouldn't open a window. Location is good - close to the pier, but not worth that money.
All the general facilities of the hotel were great and the staff were excellent in all cases. Food (mainly breakfast) was very good - the location, just off the beach is superb. If our room had of been better, this hotel would receive top marks
I would rate our room as poor and we certainly did not feel it was value for money - small (we had a double/double) and tired decor, poor lighting, bathroom door jamming - we faced out over the front of the hotel. Maybe the bigger rooms are better but we also compared this to 2 other hotels we stayed at during the same holiday which were much better
Extremely over priced, paid thousands of dollars for a few day and it felt like they stuck us in a basement, complained and didn't try anything to help us, we checked out early.
wifi service charge ???
The location was perfect, the staff was friendly and very helpful and the food was delicious. We could not have asked for a nicer place to wind down at the end of our vacation. everything about the place oozed relaxation. Truly a 5 star experience.
the valet staff was excellent - but retrieving your car takes too long and the front circle is overcrowded and difficult to navigate making it unsafe during busy periods. I'd like to see more umbrellas on the patio overlooking the ocean - 1 for each table.
1. The location was wonderful. 2. On the whole I found staff to be helpful and very friendly with nothing being too much trouble. Cleaning staff were especially courteous. 3. Poolside service was good and the 'towel lady' kept a fair watch on queues for loungers and was useful in identifying those left for too long - something which can create tension between guests if not monitored properly. 4.The gym was well equipped and within enough equipment to halt queues.
1. Old table tennis bats - although these were replaced before we left the hotel. 2. A lack of complementary nibbles to accompany drinks. This seems standard in a lot of hotels now of such expense but did not occur here and would have been a nice touch. 3. The pool seemed too small for the size of the hotel. In Europe swimming pools are huge and there are often 3-4 in a complex.
Location, lobby, breakfast
Reception staff are stubborn, Check-in time is 4:00 PM, gave me the room at 6:30 PM after continued begging. No apology whatsoever. Check-out time is 12:00. I checked-out at 4:00 PM and paid late chech-out penalty. Reception staff are from different planet beyond complaining, I paid the penalty and ran away.
