Very nice hotel, and great location walking distance to 3rd Street shopping precinct. The suite is very well equipped, though the room I was in had a smudge if something brown on the bathroom floor which was a bit gross. The other issue was that the area where the coffee machine was had no power outlet, so if you wanted to make coffee (or tea) you had to move the machine to somewhere else in the room so that you could plug it in. I ended up having to keep the coffee machine in the bathroom, which just seemed a bit ridiculous. Aside from that, everything else was great. The staff are lovely and the food in the restaurant downstairs (Monica's) is delicious, though expensive for what it is. There are plenty of other places nearby to get food though, plus there's a grab and go snack and amenities area near the front desk if you need water, sunscreen, snacks, souvenirs, etc.

I just recently stayed here for five nights. The service was good; I requested the sink plug be repaired as it was stuck, and it was done straight away. The pool area was nice, although it would be even better with full poolside service. The accommodation was nice/clean and located within a short walking distance to Santa Monica and Venice Beach. I will say however, in Australian dollars, it was very expensive, compared to other more luxurious accommodations at that price point.
