This place is fantastic. The rooms are faultlessly clean with new fixtures, carpet and modern furniture - mini-fridges in the rooms make it easy to make simple meals. The lobby has a small kitchen area with toasters and microwaves, etc. available for meal preparation as well. Breakfast is served daily and offers lots of choices, and fruit and cookies are always available. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The front desk people are as capable and helpful as the best concierges at fancy resorts. The location is wonderful (there's a shuttle service the staff can help arrange that's $20/each way from LAX to the hotel). I stayed there for business, and the hotel is so close to the beach that I was able to carve out a little beach time in my very hectic schedule. The only disappointment you'll face staying here is having to leave.
