“Thank you, Ayers”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

My wife and I stayed at the Ayers from Nov. 8-10. Our son was married on nearby Manhattan Beach. It was a magnificent time. It was made all the more meaningful with our stay at the Ayers. The staff, room and amenities are all terrific. My wife and I have traveled a lot. She is a former tour director. We have stayed at a lot of hotels, motels, B&B's etc. Ayers is at the top of the list.

I was lucky enough to discover Ayres Hotel for my recent visit to Los Angeles. It was an extremely enjoyable stay. Staff was very friendly, helpful and intelligent and always ready to help you out. Bed was super comfy and room was spacious and clean.

Interiors of hotel are marvellous and offer a different architectural and interior decoration perspective which sets this hotel out of the crowd.

I would strongly recommend this facility to anyone visiting LA.

You don't. Each time I check in, Ian greets me by name with a smile, great kindness, and even better efficiency. On this trip, I had forgotten to make a reservation at all, and he was there for me, putting me at ease and getting me set up. Always comfortable, always friendly, always clean, this hotel is a gem.

Only stayed one night. Didn't get to enjoy the bar or restaurant. But the accommodations were excellent. The hotel has a very Victorian type style; very well done. Rooms are big. The one thing that I didn't like was the shower but again it was meant to have of a Victorian style curtain.

My room's AC worked great and was quiet. Best of all the price was on point but probably because it wasn't near the beaches. During my trip to California I stayed at Hollywood Roosevelt and Hotel Palomar. Ayres was the best and I didn't expect it since it was the cheapest. Hotel Palomar was mediocre and Hollywood Roosevelt was in last place.

We took our chances on hotwire and ended up with the Ayres. We were three adults and one child. The hotel was beautiful, roughly a $20.00 cab ride from LAX. We had two rooms on first floor. Our rooms were spacious and clean - no complaints. We were expecting the complimentary breakfast but the hotel has discontinued that. We were how ever more than delighted with the restaurant on site. The wait staff were phenomenal - the food was great (even if the food had been bad we would have gone back for the service alone!!) The front desk gents were great -helpful, courteous, and more than willing to help and answer any questions we had. The staff truly deserve a pat on the back - they made our fantastic trip top notch.

Room Tip: The rail station is about a block and a half away - convenient and easy to figure out.....however if...

nice decoration, clean room, friendly workers, good location if you are OK to drive 20-30 minutes for sightseeing. It is also a very short drive to airport. Breakfast wasn't included, but had a discount in the restaurant for a buffet breakfast. And it felt safe.

Finding a hotel at the last minute online using one of the low-price sites is always a gamble; you don't see the name or address of the hotel you're choosing until you've booked it and paid. We were prepared for a 'Leave the Lights on for You' sort of place. But . . . we were so surprised. We had a clue that things would go well when we called on the way to ask for a room with certain features and were told it would be taken care of. We were meet at the desk by true professionals, three of them, all friendly and happy to see us. (The lobby is over the top, by the way, but pleasant.) Our room was beautifully furnished and looked almost new. Bath and shower wonderful. We'd thought we'd have to walk to dining at Mannhattan Beach but the hotel's restaurant turned out to be just right, for dinner and breakfast. And although the hotel sits right along side the busy, noisy route 405, the room was as quiet as could be. Thank you Ayres Mannhattan Beach. Hope to see you again.
