Wonderful experience, from check-in all the way to check-out. The gentleman who checked us in, Jack, couldn't have been friendlier or more patient when I asked him about a million questions about the property. We stayed in a studio hotel-type room for one night only. Just a quick getaway from LA. However, we maximized our time at the pool bc...
