This is perhaps the most boring expensive hotel we've ever stayed in. My question is, did whoever designed it know it was going to be built in Santa Monica. You know, the city with the beach... the city will lovely vistas... the city with sea air from the Pacific. You're sure not going to get any of that here.
The architecture is absolutely uninspired. It's a plain block building. Unless you get a room with a balcony, you are sealed in. The windows don't open. If you do get a balcony, it will have two cheap patio chairs and a table surrounded by a wall that is so high you have to stand on tip toes see anything. If you're sitting down, you better like staring at a concret wall.
The rooms are lux inside, no doubt about that with good bathroom space and excellet linen... Frete on the bed... big towls. But the furnishings, while nice, are generic high end hotel anywhere in the world.
In fact, that's what's wrong with Le Merigot, it's a generic J.W. Marriott and when I'm paying more than $500 dollars a night including tax and $28 dollars a day parking, I want more than generic.
