I had a really great and long review written out here and hit the "the submit your review" button and ALL GONE!

So since I do not have the time to rewrite it, I will say this:
This hotel was amazing. I was only supposed to be here for 1 week for work and needed to extend at the end of the week for another 2 weeks. I was very happy to extend this long being at this hotel.
I want to say a big THANK YOU to:
*Adrian- Valet manager
*John- Valet (from the second I pulled in John was right there waiting to be of service)
and the entire valet staff
*Joanna- front desk
*Dallas- front desk
*Carlos- concierge
*Jaun- back of the house
*All the bellmen
The maid service was above and beyond. It was little things that matter so much to me.

The room itself was beautiful. I was put on the 5th floor and loved it. My room was spacious and super comfortable. Everything is so hight-tech. The lights with all the control panels was awesome! I will say the room I stayed in did not have a view, but I was not concerned with a view because all "you" have to do is go to The Penthouse (hotel indoor rooftop restaurant/bar) that has the most spectacular view.

Thank you to everyone at this lovely hotel for making my stay so wonderful. It's also in a perfect location. You're close to everything. I look forward to my return!!!

I stayed here with my sister-in-law when she was visiting SoCal. It was very nice and close to everything, beach, dining, shopping. Highly recommend to all visitors! Didn't have an opportunity to have lunch or dinner, but the morning breakfast options were quite nice and well presented.

All the staff were very welcoming and helpful. They greeted us with a smile every time we saw them. The nightly turn down service was a favorite of kids, they loved the chocolates! Comfortable beds and good pillow selections. Outstanding food at the restaurant both dining experiences. Love the decor and cleanliness of the entire property. Great attention to detail. Can’t beat the location to restaurants and the beach. Will definitely be coming back here.

Excellent Relative Value w Notable Service Staff
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Probably only 50 percent more costly than a cheap place in same hood for three times the product. The extra cash was well worth it. Small hotel with very modern feel inside. Super first class staff. Excellent hideaway for couples centrally located one block walk to all the action.
