My wife and I stayed in the hotel for two nights in April. The room was very nicely appointed, clean, and comfortable and the staff members were all incredibly friendly and helpful. The complaints that other people have made about the area are unwarranted. Yes, it is initially confronting, due to its bohemian character, and there are certainly a lot of interesting characters, but there is nothing the hotel can do about that, nor should they even try. Part of travelling is experiencing the unique cultures of new areas. The only issue we had in that regard was feeling quite uncomfortable when walking to Abbot Kinney Blvd. for dinner late on the first evening. Some advice about the nature of the area would have been good.
The only real problem with the hotel is that the walls are paper thin. We stayed in a room on the ground floor and were awoken on the first morning by loud conversations in the hallway that began at 6am and continued unabated thereafter. These included one of the staff members giving directions to other guests in the hallway. Noise is impossible to avoid, but I would recommend that the staff make an effort to inform other guests that people may be sleeping. If you are thinking of staying here, I would recommend a room on one of the upper levels.
