Had to work at another Beverly Hills property the following morning so booked the DI about 5 miles away on Wilshire.
Arrived around 10:30 p.m. and checked in by very nice gentlemen who had my key ready. Easy check-in and then parked in a spot just seconds away from check-in. Booked on line the day before with hotels.com
Room average but large and even had a kitchenette. Some furniture a little worn but it looks like they are upgrading as they go. My shower looked like new tile with even a glass tile insert around the middle border. Very nice.
Bed comfortable but keep in mind there is some traffic noise but not too bad if you keep the bathroom window shut. Old time heating register but heat clicked on right away and was comfortable.
Kitchenette looks like something still there for many years but nothing you would really want to use. Some water was leaking out of the mini-refrigerator on the floor. Looked in the kitchenette cupboards that looked like they were the old-style aluminum not wood types. A few weird dishes. Anyway didn't care because I wasn't going to be staying anyway. It didn't interfere with the comfort of the room.
Last of all the drapes. I could not get the edge of the drape to completely block the view from the outside. Anyone passing by and looking through the small crack could see anyone's reflection in the room mirror. Since people can walk by the room very easily it was uncomfortable.
There is a pool but the pool chairs few and just straps - no cushions, so not looking very comfortable. The entire hotel interior surrounds pool so not sure how much sun would hit the pool in the daytime.
Anyway found on Hotels.com and the price was excellent. For that price would stay again on a short term or overnight stay.
