This was our last stop on Route 66 right in the centre of Santa Monica and a short walk to the fantastic beach where Baywatch was filmed. Our car was whisked away by a friendly valet man - no charge. The room was a bit small but beds really comfortable. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful and booked us on a 'hop on/hop off' tour of Los Angeles. There was a fantastic Italian Restaurant right opposite the hotel. On our way to the hotel the traffic was horrendous. We were worried that we might miss out flight with such heavy traffic, however, the Manager gave us directions on the old road and we arrived at the airport with loads of time to spare. Thank you.
