So after a decade of coming here, and many nights at Bonvoy Hotels as an elite member, this was a strangest stay I’ve ever had. Check-in is normally great at this hotel. But the person who checked me in at night my first night was rude to the point where I would say he was mean. One of the elevators was out, so that created a huge backup for the entire week. All understandable, it happens. Bad staffing happens. The craziest thing was my second night there I came back to my room late in the evening after attending an event nearly an hour away, and there was a room service tray full of food in my room. Food is ice cold, clearly been there for a while. It was so strange that I took a photo and shared a few laughs with some friends the next day about it. I went down to the front desk in the morning, to let them know that food was mistakenly delivered to my room, and I assume that they probably had figured that out already last night because if a guest ordered this food, they would’ve surely called down to see where it was and they would’ve figured out the mistake. Nope. They actually were surprised, it was news to them. They said they would credit it back and apologized for the hassle. One week later, I get a voicemail saying that they spoke to someone who took the food order and they confirmed my last name and room number, and that they would need to charge me for it. Not sure how they come to this conclusion when I was miles away from the hotel for hours when the food was ordered. Oh and I never used the phone. Now I have a job of tracking them down so they can actually take care of their own mess.

Classy on the inside, a little wear and tear on the outside. Elegant lobby and bar area. A couple of major issues: only one elevator was working so it was often a five minute wait. We woke to no hot water the first morning which was not ideal, but it was fixed before lunch. They comped breakfast to make up for the issues. The breakfast was good and the service was great. The upper floors have a view of the Pacific. The beach, Santa Monica Pier, and Third Street Promenade are all less than a mile away.
