I was recently in LA for business and found a great Expedia rate for this hotel. Being in the hotel industry I have always worked for boutique and independent resorts thus my desire to stay at a Joie de Vivre property. My first interaction was with the complimentary airport pickup driver Chris. I found him to be very friendly and knowledgeable. He was top notch. The hotel was very euro-sheik-hip and quite clean. I loved the multi colored LED lights and the shower was great! I have to say they did a great job on tailoring the rooms to the corporate traveler, loved the wide pedestal sinks! They provided lots of space to put your stuff. I utilized the cardio and weight room each morning and found them adequate, nothing spectacular but they certainly got the job done, also very clean. The pool area looked very inviting but it was a little too chilly to go in, next time! Deck 33 (restaurant) had a diverse menu, tasty food and prompt friendly service with a smile. Michael was a terrific server. Xandra assisted me at check out; she was superb in every way. I strongly recommend this hotel to anyone and I will certainly be back. Thank you!
