Score from 320 reviews Good
By far the most impressive thing was how lovely every member of the staff were, they gave us loads of great suggestions for where to eat and drink so we feel like locals. Great location too, and the rooftop bar is excellent. Highly reccomended.
Location, staff xlnt.
Furniture and bathrooms had seen better days. Lots of road noise.
Very friendly staff. Spacious clean rooms. The rooms had hardwood flooring which was really nice.
It is about a time to refresh building from inside and outside
Location, service, breakfast, view.
Unable to shower without flooding bathroom. Very slippery bathroom floor, unsafe tub entrance and exit, no handicap access to tub, Many requests to concierge,/ front desk ignored including room service menu, childish amenities that are extremely overpriced.
poor lighting & noisy exhaust fan in bathroom
The hotel is one of the oldest I have ever been and need to be heavily renovated. Although the location is fantastic, the facility is not worth the money.
The location is really nice!
I almost cancelled this reservation due to all the negative comments (and second guessing my choice) but I'm glad I didn't - this place deserves a higher rating. The valet parking is expensive, so go to the parking garage around the corner to save some $.
We stayed here after a long holiday in Hawaii & West Coast, and we loved every moment of it and were sad to leave! Granted, we did get our room upgraded but the room was *amazing* -- two bedrooms, a living room a huge wrap around balcony and a view of the ocean. Private sunset viewings every evening! Room service was fast & good, the bar was also great and trendy, staff were all *excellent* and helpful, room very comfy, location great with a public parking garage right around the corner.
Felt a little old
The bathroom shower needed more force, privacy glass in bathroom needs to be more.
The view, the friendly and helpful staff, the location.
Unfortunately, our room wasn't really when we arrive at 10 pm. The clean up staff were less than spectacular,towels were tattered and often left wet. The shower control didn't work properly,they fixed it.the lights had no individual controls all on or all off. No ability to read while partner sleeps.
Great location.potential to be a fantastic property. The staff was appologetic and receptive to criticism,but the problems still did not get fixed. It did not live up to expectation of a Small Luxury Hotel property. Pity because it good be lovely!
The breakfast was scrumptious and the Art Deco design of the building was really different.
Great location, nice pool area that gets the sun in the morning, great roof top bar and nice restaurant downstairs. Room was well equipped and the bed was very comfortable.
The receptionist forgot to tell that all information about the hotel was in the small piece of paper folded to keep the key card in.
Very friendly welcoming staff
Don't expect holes in my towels from a hotel with the shangri-la name.. buy some new ones. Asked for the password for free WiFi at check in and was told it would prompt me for and email.. it didn't, it prompted me for a password so I didn't bother.. Grotty waterdamaged tiles/floor in the bathroom.. expected better.
Good safe location..
location and style
Bed and pillows were too soft for me resulting in back and neck pain No mini-bar fridge in room - had to rely on ice to keep drinks cold
Art deco architecture Very friendly and helpful staff
The location is wonderful - the staff is extremely helpful. This hotel does not belong to the Shangri-La chain - that was confusing- but it is still a great place to stay in Santa Monica.
The room size was a bit small
The room was very dated, especially the windows, carpets and some of the furniture. It felt like it all needed a serious clean-up and makeover. The sofa bed was small and not very nice with some very old IKEA duvets thrown on top for the kids. A/C again old and extremely noisy. All in all very poor value for money at 615 dollars per night...
The hotel's location was very good. The building is beautiful with lots of Art Deco features. Staff is friendly and valet parking very efficient.
Room very cramped
Value for money not in line with the room provided
Location and very friendly staff
- doors locks get blocked when in heat (sunlight) leaving hosts outside and requiring staff intervention (came very fast) - wifi coverage was not available in the restaurant and did not cover the whole room - we found no towels at all in the bathroom when returning to the room one of the afternoons - breakfast was good but only cooked English/American options, no buffet with fresh vegetables and fruits, or cheese
- splendid location, near the ocean, close to Santa Monica entertainment area - nice renovated facilities with an Art Deco atmosphere - helpful staff - good restaurant
Period building, location, spacious room/suite
fantastic roof bar; great staff; clean and good location
