A great hotel
Great location, very friendly staff and a nice clean hotel. Bit disappointed with the daily ammenity fee, felt it was a hidden cost and we didn't get value from it, as we don’t drink coffee, there was no english tea, and we were never at the hotel between 3pm and 5pm for "wine time".

Hotel is fantastic. Unfortunately a short stay but would have been thrilled to stay a few extra nights. Rooms are well furnished, fun and beautiful, Outdoor area equally as great to hang and relax. Great place if you need to knock out some email before a dip in the heated pool.

Great little boutique hotel
We stayed for 3 nights when visiting LA to see a show and overall it was a great albeit with a rough start as when we showed up around 6 pm our double bed room was not available and the only room we could take could not fit a rollaway bed but did have a king bed. It was nice enough that we ended up declining the offer to move us to "the biggest room we have" with a rollaway bed the next night. The front desk person was appropriately apologetic and comp'ed us parking and the resort fee which made it right for us. Highlights are the very charming rooms, which are tastefully decorated, a nice L-shaped mini couch, a mini TV that allows you to use Netflix, Disney+, etc. (on your own accounts though) as well as live TV. The bed was super comfortable although it did seem to tilt/sag towards one side. The room was clean without any bugs of any sort. The shower had nice water pressure and felt great. The hotel itself has a classic feel with doors that opens to an outdoor atrium with a small pool (did not use). Central location next to the Farmer's Market/Grove and nearby LACMA and Hollywood was great. There is also room service and a restaurant that was being used for the Netflix Bites pop up which looked fun but we didn't try. Minor negatives was that it was rather noisy until 10 pm due to the Netflix Bites outdoor seating but our room was quiet enough. No blackout shades but the shutters kept the room reasonably dark. Only valet parking which is pricey.

Great Spot
Great small boutique hotel. Central location in LA, close to many of the studios, farmers market and museums. Surprisingly quiet given the busy streets nearby. Worked out perfect for us.
