The hotel is unique and beautiful, the employees were very courteous, professional, and helpful, and the continental breakfast was the best I've ever had. The only thing that kept me from giving this hotel a full five stars was the attention to detail on a few of the items in the room. There was a desk lamp with a broken shade clamp and a loose switch that crackled and sparked, and a wall outlet that did the same problem. The safe in the room upon first use had a dead battery and was unusable.
While most of these issues were addressed promptly and courteously, for the cost of the room I would have expected that the rooms would not have these types of safety issues. I would definitely stay again and look forward to seeing what the hotel looks like after the upcoming room makeovers. Traveled with family, and the room was great for having a crib and a child. The balcony overlooking Santa Monica was truly special.
Four and a 1/2 stars.
