Stayed here for four nights on the return leg of a trip to Hawaii.
Initial impressions - fantastic - lobby area was very classy - marble everywhere, a huge glass frontage and wonderful orchid flower arrangements.
Our room was in the Oasis Tower which I don't think was the best tower to be in - the room looked like it had been given a quick lick of paint to freshen it up and the bathroom had some mould on the tiles. Air con was very noisy.
Having said all that, the room was clean and the beds were amazing - like sleeping on a cloud!!
Breakfast was delicious - $17 for continental buffet, great choice available - everything fresh and beautifully presented.
Only ate dinner once in the hotel restaurant - Circa 55 - we felt the restaurant and waiters had 'delusions of grandeur' the food was ok but the quality did not match the price and the restaurant had no atmosphere.
The final straw was when the waiter told us the wine we requested was not available and recommended an alternative - we had three glasses between us and were horrified when the bill came and we had been charged $22 per glass -$66 for three glasses of wine. To say we felt conned is an understatement!!
After this experience we went out to eat - found a lovely Italian on Santa Monica Blvd called Da Pasquale it is just round the corner from the hotel. Great atmosphere and service - food was delicious and wine was only $8 per glass!!!
Concierge was very helpful, offered advice and organised excursions for us - did the usual touristy things - tour of the homes of the stars, Universal Studios, Hollywood Blvd, Rodeo Drive.
We thought the hotel was not as ' up market' as its prices and attitudes would suggest but overall we did enjoy our stay and would stay there again.
