Great Father 's Day weekend

Posted 23-Jun-2015
Wonderful staycation for me and my family, residents of L.A. Saturday night, we walked to P.F. Changs after a swim. Father's Day, we had breakfast in the room while watching the beach and pier. We had lunch and a long swim before heading back home. Everything relaxing and perfect.

Historic Santa Monica location

Posted 22-Jun-2015
Fantastic location. Excellent staff. Quite bustling, so if looking for a more intimate experience this is not your place. The history of the property and its location make it a fun and convenient stay.

Weekend trip

Posted 25-May-2015
Pros: Overall nice place
Cons: Better food and the cleaning staff needs to not enter your room
Location: Right next to Santa Monica pier and a great walking path along the beach
The hotel is was nice. But staff entered our room three times before we could answer the door and that was compromising every time. I had eggs Benedict for breakfast $30 and Inhave had better at IHOP. It might not have been our weekend for things going right but I would try it again.

Extremely disappointing

Posted 21-May-2015
I think there must be two experiences at this hotel- staying in a renovated room or unrenovated. We got the latter.( I asked the check in clerk on the way out - Room 612). I was expecting much more- a nice room with a view of the ocean. We got a very dated room with a view of Santa Monica buildings- no ocean. Paying $550 I would have expected a lot more. Additionally the staff at The Fig restaurant for breakfast were quite surly

Gute Lage, aber zu teuer

Posted 18-May-2015
Pros: Lage
Zu teuer: 400.- € pro Nacht für ein kleines Zimmer, aber gute Lage Nähe Santa Monika Pier und zur 3. Straße (Fußgängerzone, tolle Einkaufsmöglichkeiten)

Fabulous location

Posted 4-May-2015
We loved the location of this hotel and the beautiful entry past a magnificent 100 year old fig tree. The room was spacious and comfortable and had a balcony with an ocean view. Fig restaurant was great and The Bungalow bar was fun.
