It exceeded our expectations! On check-in we felt very welcome, the staff were so lovely. While handing us our keys the girl at reception told us we had been given a complimentary upgrade to a two-bedroom suite with a gorgeous view (it was room 601). Jean Paul helped us with our bags on the way up to the room, we found him very friendly and professional which was visible for the 4 days we were here! Our room was hands down the nicest (and biggest) we’ve ever stayed in. We had a living area, and a large balcony with breathtaking views of the ocean with the hills in the background, and we could also see Santa Monica pier in the other direction. The two bathrooms were lovely, one with a jacuzzi. The bedrooms were beautiful too, although they had minimal decor, we just loved the style of this hotel! The pool area is really elegant too. Need to recommend Parking was good and safe, but expensive.
