Very clean. nice staff. They put us in the room with the nicest view. The bed was very comfortable. Check out process was very easy, too. It was supposed to be a private balcony, but it was too open to the next balcony. There was no dividers between the balcony to balcony, so if the guests in the next room wanted to, they could just hop over to our balcony. It didn't feel safe.
The staff is incredible- helpful, fast and friendly. It's fairly centrally located, at least for what we were in Los Angeles to do on this trip. 7-8 miles from Santa Monica, 7ish miles from Griffith Observatory. In a pinch, there's a Ralphs grocery store right accross the street (and there's a microwave and refrigerator in the room). Convenient valet ($20/night) parking in an area where there is none...at all...anywhere. Minor issues: slow shower drain, horrific in-room coffee (there's a cafe w/Starbucks on site) and W Olympic Blvd is LOUD. The windows keep a lot of the noise out, we thought it was manageable.
