I stayed here in July with family. We had a room with 2 queen beds, a chair with ottoman and a desk. There was also a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. This hotel is perfectly located in a very quiet part of town. Parking is in an underground garage with both stairs and an elevator. There are a handful of great places to eat within a few minutes walk. If you stay, be sure and have a coffee and pastry (almond croissant - yum) at Lou, the French on the Block, which on the opposite side of the street from the hotel. Olive and Thyme is delicious as well. All of the nearby restaurants we tried were excellent. The hotel is within a 40 minute drive of many LA attractions. It's 10 min to Universal Studios, 30 min to the La Brea Tar Pits, 15 min to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, 35 min to Santa Monica Pier. It's just an all around great location if you are looking for a quiet place to stay. There was very little traffic as it is a business area with tall buildings and some apartments. So, walking, crossing streets and getting around was stress free for us. The only real downside is the pool, which is very tiny and only 4 feet deep. So if you have kids who love to swim and want to make that a significant part of your vacation experience, this is probably not the place for you. Breakfast was included in our stay and was typical of all the Best Western breakfasts I've had. Waffles, Eggs, Bread, Yogurt, etc. We experienced one problem while we were there. The building's electricity went off and on throughout our first night. It was a terribly hot night and the room became sweltering and uncomfortable. We found out the next morning that a part had worn out and needed replacing, which the owner took care of that day. He also more than made up for the discomfort by comping us the first night. All in all, we felt well cared for. This hotel will be our go to place in the area from now on. less
