I have stayed at the Ambrose many times in the past and always have chosen it because of the great first floor sitting area and outside sitting areas and wonderful breakfasts. I booked a room Nov 26-29 via the Ambrose link to the Booking website. There was no notification from either Ambrose or booking.com that the entire first floor of the hotel was under construction. Thus, no sitting area other than sit in the room and breakfast, just a cardboard box with a cup of fruit. The hotel charged its usual rates, including $22/day to park a car. This borders on fraudulent advertising. I have asked for reduced rates
Everything to which I had access. Especially appreciated their taxi which offered free service within a 3 mile radius, and driver Chad's interesting and helpful information. Not quite a mile to the beach, and the surrounding quiet neighborhood is good for walking, exploring, eating and shopping.
the renovation kept me from really experiencing the hotel, as all public areas were closed off. I will revisit when the work is complete.
I was close to St. John's hospital, walking distance. Bed was very comfortable. Clean sheets. Good ventilation. Slept perfectly. I wouldn't vacation here but it was perfect for staying close to the hospital.
Construction issues: noise, no lobby, you have to walk up and down the steep garage ramp so it is not handicap accessible except by car; breakfast is a boxed mini croissant and iffy fruit cup by the elevator. Other issues: incredibly dirty: stained carpets; air filter was filled with gunk- don't even look at it; tub didn't fully drain; icky factor.
Nicely presented room Excellent housekeeping Polite and courteous staff
No breakfast room Breakfast in a box Had to enter hotel via carpark Gym not avaiable due to refurbishment Not value for money
Staff were great and was easy to get to. Parking facilities good.
No prior notice of renovations and no consideration in tariff. Breakfast became a very light box brekky which was not good value.
Great free breakfast with fresh fruit and pastries.
Luckily they are renovating, feels tired and in need of some TLC.
A beautiful room with a great balcony. Wonderful bed and bathroom with bathrobes. Clean room. In american standard a good breakfast. A little different but nice breakfast seating. Perfect underground parking with elevator just there, to take you to your room. We did arrive late and that was no problem. The next day we left our luggage in the hotel so we didn´t have to have them in the car during the day. The service for that was very good but service could have been a little better from some staff. My husband went out early to get me strawberries and flowers for my birthday and he got very little help from a male staff-member. Overall it was a nice hotel and we would come back.
Room size, bedding, staff, location
Yummy fruit tons of choice. They even supplied a gluten fee muffin! Nice natural bathroom products too. I'll come back.
A bit pricey
Nice hotel on walking distance from Santa Monica. Friendly staff.
Breakfast room was a bit dark and not so much space/
location, good breakfast if you like likes carbs
It's was a little bit further out from Santa monica pier, however easy to get around with a car, and they offer there own transport. Staff were amazing and helpful
Lovely room, nice décor, quiet, nice complementary breakfast
Some of the staff was not really as helpful as you would think. Had no idea where things were in the area and when we asked for more towels they said "um, that's not our department". I didn't know hotels had specific departments...
There is own parking, $22 per night. Good groceries are in 2-minute walk.
Sufficient breakfast only at the weekend. We failed to order dinner from the menu as they were running out of some products.
I loved everything about this hotel. The decor is so California and cool. The staff was friendly and accommodating! The room was great, it had a balcony and was big. It offered free bikes to ride to the beach and a free shuttle within 3 miles. It's location was great. The breakfast was super!
They say breakfast was included - but breakfast without cheese, tomatoes? They served just bakery and fruit and wanted us to eat on the sofa... Bad treatment.
Great hotel just off the main tourist strip but close to everything in Santa Monica. The staff bent over backwards at every opportunity. They even have a luxury car/shuttle to take you anywhere in Santa Monica day or night. Best free continental breakfast ever with lots of fresh fruit, yogurt, pastries, great teas, coffee, bagels, etc. highly recommended!!!
Staff were brilliant Rooms were spotless Facilities are excellent Highly recommend
Everyone was so lovely and helpful and really made our stay a pleasure! We were celebrating our engagement and the staff went above and beyond to make it a special night.
Staff was very nice. The place was comfortable. Highly recommended.
Locations, parking, breakfast and wifi
Old TV, single pane window and dirty looking carpet
Location and some staff friendly
Bathroom , carpets ( looking old and dusty)
The girl at the front desk was the most welcoming front desk person I have ever encountered. We have traveled all over the world. She made you feel like you mattered and wanted to make sure our stay would be great.
We were on the 3rd floor, I guess in the smaller room 1- King over looking garden which was nice. However, all day & night there was beeping sound off and on. We are not sure what it is from. We were next to the elevators & maybe it had something to do with that. Either way no one should be paying $250 +/night for that. Plus $20 day for parking their car at the hotel. Just wrong!
Cosey and shuttle to restaurants and pier. Staff was impeccable.
Noisy plumbing from other rooms
Affordable, quiet/peaceful, nice free continental breakfast (with gluten free options) and only a mile from beach. Overnight parking is also reasonable at $20/night.
