Probably the worse experience we had with customer service in this town The front desk was very rude and made a horrible first impression to us and our family friend’s on day 1 It was very clear that management was horrible and the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree in the hotel industry

Some positive things?The location is good Adjacent to some great restaurants and it’s on a quieter side of the area which was niceThe pool gets full sun which is nice and never gets talked about It’s nice if you want to get away from the hectic beach and sandGood value for the facility/rooms and cleanliness Parking is easy and it’s a quiet areaThe facility would be great if the front desk and management wasn’t horrible This is why they deserved 1 star Paying several hundreds a day to be talked to like you’re about to be evicted for not paying your rent is not cool

James Kolb

The hotel is at a great location, but FAR from being considered a true Hilton property The hotel and bar offer absolutely nothing complimentary (Coffee, tea or even water), breakfast items are a menu choice and are very healthy, but a little pricey The rooms are very comfortable and spacious

The staff was accommodating and friendlyThe pool and hot tub are clean and comforting, however the entire pool area had ONE functioning umbrella for a dozen plus chaise lounges When asked maintenance if they had more umbrellas, he stated parts are on order! Overall…very satisfied

Brian Martino

This is the perfect place for quiet, fun, rest, and relaxation The rooms are perfectly appointed Beautiful oceanfront view from my suite

My meal from foodservice was delivered quickly and friendly and was set up unobtrusively The steak was cooked perfectly! Which is saying something since its difficult to find a rare steak in SCalifornia! The check-in process was seamless and was made to feel valued The staff is just incredible, everyone! Thank you for a beautiful stay!

Such an Exquisite Hotel and Grandeur presence Entire hotel immaculate and rooms are well appointed I like that the sink is outside/separate of the shower and toilet area

The shutter that divides the two beds is a genius idea The decor is elegant and traditional but yet felt modern The room size was massive for a standard double room It felt like a 500 sq ft room The coffee in the room was very goodUnfortunately, we only stayed one day and arrived late so we didn’t get to eat at the restaurant or enjoyed the outside courtyard nor the many areas to explore and to just relax and soak in the atmosphere We did, however, get to enjoy the fireplace while having a late night snack I would highly recommend eating at the restaurant as the food smelled heavenly Additionally, there are many shopping centers/plaza across the street which we didn’t get to take advantage of as well The entire area is completely safe and very well lit as it is a very lively town The hotel does have a private parking for a fee I will definitely come back and stay longer

Lisa Ford

Ayres Hotel is comfortable and homely Staff are friendly and we loved the pool and spa Rooms were serviced daily and everything was spotlessly clean and today

Location is good, next time I would ask for a room not overlooking the freeway Stayed here with my husband and adult son Plenty of room for the three of us and privacy between the beds and the shutters were a great idea We will be back!

Lynne Henley

The employee that was on the desk the night of my arrival was very professional and he greeted me with a sincere and warm welcome I was so exhausted from the work day, that he had to literally verbally guide me to my room The room was exceptionally clean throughout which made the night very relaxing for me

I will truly recommend this hotel to my guest and use it again for local retreats

Stayed a week on Family vacationIn a pretty good location, fairly close to several attractions/entertainment options Beautiful beach within 8min of hotel; Manhattan Beach/Pier (Less busy than Santa Monica)Good staff service, with good breakfast, and reception food n beverage options

The Hotel does a decent job keeping the facility and rooms clean Just needs to be cleaned more frequently, if possible, and a little more thoroughlyOverall, a pretty satisfactory stay for the week!!!

Hai Parnes

The hotel located on the 405 But you don’t hear nothing They’re very kind clean, and just did remodel

Very good service! very recommend!! we had a lot of fun and a answer of all our requestLess good: If the Check is in 15:00 the room will not be ready before! also we were there 14 nights and the GYM where close because of broken mirror that didn’t fixed!but still we are recommended for this place the feeling it’s good you will love it


Overall the staff in the kitchen area really made our stay pleasant The Mexican and Filipino lady always greeted us with a smile each morning and offered to make waffles prior to it being busy, the free dinner offered from Mon-Thurs was an extra added bonus too, free wine selections and beer craft on tap The ladies offered to take our plates it was next level service

The cleanliness of the hotel was amazing only down fall was the fact that house keeping is only offered on certain days unless you request it with 24hours notice No daily house keeping Parking was $18 per day Another issue I had was they only had one set of elevators so if your room is on the other side of the building it was a far walk to the elevators There was stairs but it could be an issue if you have to carry things up etc overall nice hotel

My stay was great I haven’t been to the Sheraton Gateway since 2008 and I love all the upgrades they did I was in town to give my father a proper burial, he passed away a few weeks ago

The bed was very comfy, no complaints at all Hot water was available no matter what time I showered I requested housekeeping service daily and they came, cleaned my room and delivered fresh towels daily This hotel is very convenient to the airport whether you drive or not, shuttle to and from the airport, valet parking or self parking available as well I will be coming back to LA next year and will be staying here again:)

শরিফ রাজ

Overall, this was a comfortable place to stay I would avoid taking the shuttle provided as you are packed like sardines on a small bus There is a sign that says no standing as you enter the bus but the driver crammed as many people and luggage in as he could so some people stood the entire ride to the hotel (see picture)

This was a last minute stay due to a flight cancellation so that could be the reason Once I got off the shuttle,the woman at the front desk was very accommodating I had an issue with the room key not working but she was able to quickly resolve The room was spacious and it had a coffee maker which was great! There was also complimentary water provided There was an issue with the shower head that was not able to be fixed so I ended up just taking a bath instead Besides the shuttle, everything else was pretty good and the staff was accommodating

MiMi Nicole

My husband stayed here for two nights and truly enjoyed our accommodations The facility looked newly renovated, the rooms were extremely spacious, and even though we were very close to the airport, the room was very well insulated from sound There wasn’t much to walk to around the area, especially at night, but it was very central to a high-traffic area of hotels, and delivery services were always very speedy

Also, I left some very important items in the safe in the room, so I wanted to take a moment to thank Ashlyn O from housekeeping for being honest and turning them in It is nice to know that there are honest people still out there

Just got back from spending a week in Hermosa Our 3rd time out there,first at the Hampton Great hotel,great location

Anthony at the desk was very helpful and made our stay enjoyable Actually all the staff were friendly and helpful Requested an ocean view roomdid not disappoint! Very clean and comfortable Next time we come out there definitely will be staying at the Hampton

Michael DeGroot

Decent enough hotel Located in a great spot to walk for food or the beachBreakfast was fine just not a lot of selection compared to some others I’ve had

Our room had a balcony area, but was in a tight spot between buildings so no real view there We did get early check-in

Daniel Torres

Location is within walking distance of beach, but hotel is really not up to Hampton Inn standards Building is old, parking lot is small, and rooms are “spartan” in furnishings and decor No carpet in room and everything is dated in appearance

Towels were damp which may be result of housekeeping staff overloading dryers so that nothing tumbles and dries as it should Rooms could be cleaner too Staff is friendly, however

Baker Collins

My family and I stayed here 7/16-7/17 To their credit, we arrived early and they were able to put us in one of our two rooms for an added fee That is pretty much where the positive experience ended

The room is more expensive— by close to 100 dollars per room, than the other hotels nearby, and they require an incidental expenses hold of $300 per room For that we hoped to have a pleasant experience We are a family of 6, and booked the property in part because of on site restaurants and a pool for the kids The pool is laughably small — clearly only there to check the box for hotel amenities The air conditioning cannot keep up with the demand for rooms— both of our rooms were uncomfortably hot (76-77 degrees Fahrenheit) and decreasing the temperature on the thermostat had no effectThe hotel’s only actual restaurant closes between 10 and 5 and there is also no room service during those hours We ended up walking over to another nearby hotel that actually had an open restaurant to have lunch That evening, we did both order room service for the kids and also went to the restaurant for dinner The food is mediocre at best with expected high prices (hamburger and French fries for $25), and the $16 per drink cocktails were frankly just not well made Neither refrigerator worked in our rooms The bathrooms and rooms appear nice, but the shower head was awful, spitting out water in all directions There were issues checking into our second room, and once we were given keys we arrived to find the room had not been cleaned and we needed to continue to waitAfter dinner, we needed to get to bed for an early flight At 11:47pm the room doorbell rang and there was a family outside of our room My husband thought they had the wrong room number 5 minutes later another knock at the door was the desk agent, stating that she didn’t know why we were in this room and asking to see our IDs We explained that they placed us in this room and gave us room keys, and my husband showed his ID We left the next morning at 5The shuttle and shuttle driver were helpful, which was nice However the overall experience was not good and for a total of $400 per room I would have expected a higher degree of competence and a restaurant to actually be open and serve reasonably good food and drinksWe were meant to stay here for another night on the way back and canceled our subsequent reservation Hilton should be able to perform better than this

Janette Cilliers (JC)

Room was nice, but there several small things I would have expected to be in the room of this caliber No ice bucket, not enough charging outlets or towels Also we found strands of hair all over the bathroom 🤮 Lastly, the pool had much to be desired

My bathroom is bigger than their pool And to top it off there were no lounge chairs or umbrellas in the tables It just looked unkempt and dirty Not impressed! I would have thought Hilton was better than this However the location was perfect if you needed to get to the airport quick, you could make it their in 5 minutes with their free shuttle

Shelby Allison

Our flight got cancelled so our family decided to stay here for the night since it was so close to the airport for our flight the next morning Having the shuttle service to and from the hotel was very convenient especially since we had two toddlers with us The rooms were very clean and updated and there were lots of food options nearby as well as a Coffee Bean in the hotel

Overall very nice and convenient

Feedback From Real Customers


The Manhattan location of Shade is retro, stuck in the 90s with it’s mahogany decor, faded carpets and dark interior design If you’re lucky the get a ground floor room you might encounter the sweet sounds of restaurant and kitchen clattering The hotel is centrally located near the pier and many local restaurants

The bed was firm and comfortable, the ac worked too well, and the bathrooms were more like a 25-3 star hotel We were surprised at how busy the hotel was, we couldn’t check in until check-in time, 3 I’ve usually found it quite easy at other hotels to get an earlier check-in

Cory Moulton

Great location and comfortable rooms, if a bit dog eared and dated Carpets etc could use a refresh Staff is wonderful and the hotel has a very comfortable vibe

Food good as well Only compaint is the $20 per person / per night “resort fee” So annoying Just charge AND list the rates you need to charge in order to make money Or, let me decline resort fee at check in and take away my rights to use the elevators, pool and public restrooms

Elizabeth Peterson

Highly recommend The Shade Hotel After issues with our AirBnB, we decided to stay here From the booking, through the changes, checkin, valet, room, restaurant, bar, to our departure, everything was great

The staff all went above and beyond to make sure our stay was great Location was perfect for our trip We will definitely be back to stay again Thank you to Ron, Marissa, Gustavo and Daniel for making our stay amazing!

Cathy Trout

We came here for a two-day retreat and had a fabulous time due to the attentiveness of the staff Our event planner, Danielle, was outstanding as well as Jesse, who took care of our every need, and Joshua, who provided delicious, carefully curated and crafted breakfast and lunch – he took the time to listen to our vegan and gluten-free staff to cook specialty meals for them, as if they had their own private chef We had such a good, relaxing time and the front desk staff made us feel at home

Enjoyed the fitness room and other amenities in this sweet little hotel It’s sitting there off the freeway so it’ looks ominous But it’s so quietly and lovely inside

Mario de la Pena

Front desk staff was warm and welcoming But the hotel room itself wasn’t that great The smoke detector was barely secured and was just hanging by the wires

The bathroom sink had a strong unpleasant odor whenever you run water The bathtub plug was missing The carpet was dirty The refrigerator’s shelving was not installed correctly The hallways smelled like weed(but thats probably from the other guests) Housekeeping knocked on our door at 8:40am asking when we will be checking out which is contrary to what they advertise(staff will not bother you unless you ask for service) Breakfast costs $12 for continental or $16 for hot food, which isn’t worth it I don’t think I would return to stay at this location in the future

Miki Murphy

Hotel was average Had noisy neighbors didn’t sleep Although did get informed of free breakfast when arrived by cold food selection was actually 16 dollars When requested room to be cleaned as staying the week (per signs in room) was told they don’t clean them and I could borrow a vacuum if I wanted

Covid mask mandates are lifted, not sure what the reason a room can’t be cleaned Or remove signs that say you can request room cleaning during your stay

THIS IS A REVIEW ONLY ABOUT THEIR WEDDING EVENT OFFERINGSMy fiancee reached out to the hotel regarding having our wedding ceremony and reception there We met with what I presume is their Event Planner person Some of our family came along, so we could get their opinion as well

The Planner seemed to initially mislead us on the pricing, because all of us recalled her saying the per person price accounted for everything No mention of separate ceremony and reception room fees (which makes sense to us now) So, when we received a price estimate for a wedding package, it was much higher than the approximate calculations we previously did during our visit We brushed it off as a misunderstanding on our partA few weeks later we met with the Planner again, to try to bring the price down She mentioned the possibility of doing a day time wedding, which would be about $3000 cheaper We liked the idea, and provided updated information to the Planner She calculated an approximate total cost and we liked what we saw She said she would send us an official updated estimate in email My fiancee said the Planner said she would send it over the weekend, but she never did Finally, the following weekend my fiancee emailed the Planner asking for an update, to which the Planner replied that she was going to call my fiancee but realized she didn’t have her number She then asked for my fiancee to email her number to her We called BS on this, because the Planner had a whole week to do as she said she would, and never emailed my fiancee asking for any additional contact information until she was contacted by my fiancee My fiancee nevertheless gave her phone number, and the Planner didn’t call her that dayA week or so later, the Planner gets back to my fiancee, informing her that the Director said they won’t allow us to do a day time wedding on the day we want (a weekday), because they have businesses at the hotel during the week days This was not listed on the pamphlet for the wedding package offerings, and the Planner didn’t mention such a restriction eitherNeedless to say, we decided to not have our wedding at the Portofino Hotel Their customer service was horrible and they were unprofessional in their lack of effective and timely communication Such behavior is extremely disappointing, especially since it has to do with such a very important and special day, the planning of which is already stressful enough Get your act together Portofino People, because you look ridiculous

Markelle Reilly

Do not recommend This hotel was NOT worth the money Literally the only good thing was the view

$32 for parking is absolutely ridiculous being that we paid $400 per night for a small room that had no microwave We ordered room service for breakfast and got the notification saying it would be up to our room in about 30 minutes Hour and a half later it never showed up We couldn’t get ahold of the hotel or the restaurant to find out what was going on We finally got fed up with waiting and checked out My husband got this hotel as a surprise for our anniversary and we’ve honestly had a better stay at a Best Western that was way cheaper! I wouldn’t pay more that $200 for this hotel They’re basically robbing everyone

This is the second time staying here and I plan on booking again in the future! The staff is always friendly and the cleaning staff is just wonderful and kind! The first time there was a different variety every other day for breakfast This time unfortunately it was the same stuff everyday and I would rather not warm my frozen food with the plastic on it in a microwave but that seemed to be the only option they have now And the washer/dryer definitely need an update

Other then that it was great as usual Again I want to applaud the GREAT staff!


Check in was a breeze, I got there early and it wasn’t a problemThe beds were to low and to soft forThere were several outlets near the bed which is a plus due to medical equipmentThis hotel is near the freeway and close to several restaurants

There were too many compact parking spaces which is minor but can be inconvenient if coming in late and you have to walk around the building by yourselfI didn’t eat breakfast I only seen pork products however I did like the fact that it was individually wrapped There were bagels and other stuff but we passedEveryone that I came in contact with was very nice and helpful Even though the bed wasn’t for me but the location is everything I would stay again

Ben C

Great for a short stayFrom bad to good

The bad 1) Our air didn’t work Hot or cold 2) Our room was not serviced or cleaned I’m not sure if we had to request this But most hotels (even small motels) do this automaticallyNot a deal breaker but worth noting 1) Small continental breakfast 2) Bad location for the TV It was in the middle of where the bed was and the couch was So bad angle and hurts your neck after a whileGood 1) The beds were extremely comfortable 2) Staff was nice and courteous 3) Good hotel location 4) Fair pricing 5) Pretty quiet for a hotel so close to the airport 6) Air purifier in the room adds a nice touch 7) Desk was perfect to get some work done

We flew into LAX on a later flight and arrived to the hotel around 8pm We used points to stay at Westdrift and was pleasantly surprised The service was impeccable

I was traveling with three young children and the staff could not have been more helpful, warm and caring They joked with myself and my children and we had a lot of fun The hotel was nicely furnished and clean We will stay again at this location!

Dena H.

I stayed at this location for 2 nights and had a very pleasant stay It was extremely clean in the rooms and in the common areasThe staff are also very friendly

The food here is really good and I highly recommend eating breakfast at the hotel There is also a bar in the lobby and a tiny cafeThe only downside is parking is extremely expensive per night about $40 per night but you can see if they’ll be able to lower it

Emanuel Eni

quite bad front desk servicethe hotel is nice and the rooms are big and modern but the daytime front desk staff

talk about booted people I barely got a hello from 3 people 1 was checking in peopel while the other two were chatting and sitting on the phoneno acknowledgement of my status (and appreciation for being a loyal customer), no water, no late checkout offered (although entitled to), no acknowledgement and apologies for not being able to offer any upgrades after checkin I have asked for a room change further away from the airport and from the noisy AC unit that was just in front of my window and I got a very rude: no rooms availablenight staff was very supportive and they promptly acted when some guests were too loud in the middle of the nightbreakfast was great, but a bit understaffed so you had to wait to be seatedif they would solve the front desk and would give the girls some customer interaction training it could get the 5 stars it deservesI’m going back in 3 weeks and hopefully the front desk would be better staffed

The stay at this hotel was excellent Staff were friendly and the amenities were very enjoyable My wife and I played basketball, worked out at the gym, went in the pool and hot tub, enjoyed watching some football in the lounge, and enjoyed a peaceful outside sitting area near a fireplace at night

We also have to thank our front desk check in associate extra as we let her know we were on our honeymoon and she provided us with complimentary free breakfast for our stay to celebrate! Along with all this, the room was clean and modern, with a TV and desk and even a mini-refrigerator Being on the top floor came with an excellent view of Hawthorne as well!

Clean and good hotel near the airportSpacious lobby and friendly staffClean spacious room with good amenities

The gym is good as wellThe place is well located near the airport but with no noise at all There is plenty of stores nearbyThey have also a bar where you can order drinks/sandwiches but no buffetThe only downside was the smoking smell in the room despite being smoking free facility


Parking, lobby environment, and bed is great!!!! We just stayed for one night However, the bathroom shower floor was dirty Like actual dirty foot prints inside the shower and dirt accumulating on the side

Not sure why half of the door of shower was missing Super Weird design Water gets on the floor Also some of the lights were not working for a bit, had to call front desk In my opinion Not worth the price for my room A deposit is required!! Ask for receipt before you leave!!! I did enjoy the environment though Didn’t hear any noises on the fifth floor

The location was amazing!! 1 mile to the beach and close to shops and restaurants! Our room was a good size and clean! The breakfast was pretty good with a lot of variety The beds could have been more comfortable and the walls seemed a little thin—we could hear when our neighbor was running water Overall, it was great and we will definitely stay again!

If it were not for Ericka, I would have canceled my ENTIRE stay I made an initial call requesting an early check-in and was advised they didn’t have rooms available for early check-in and to come at 4 PM (guaranteed check-in) I called back 15 minutes after 4pm to confirm amenities for our room and was advised by Alex that because loyalty members requested late check-outs; our SUITE was not available for check in at the guarantee check in time of 4 PM

He advised I allow an additional 45 minutes; however, I called back, spoke with Ericka who confirmed there WAS a room and she saved it for us to ensure we weren’t displaced Erika is accommodating, friendly , and has such a beautiful spirit; she needs to remain the face of this company because without her, they would lose QUALITY CONSUMERS Go Ericka!!!!

Received an incidental charge of $55 despite not ordering food and barely being in the room Front desk confirmed there were no incidentals and said it should fall off and it did not When I disputed it with my credit card, they indicated the front desk said it was legitimate

Also, Suite Night Award was not granted, but they did not return the Suite Night making that platinum benefit an intangible lottery that could grant you nothing

Amazing service!!!Definitely recommend for clean rooms and tons of space for hosting eventsWe just hosted our wedding at this location and were AMAZED at how great the service wasThis particular Marriott’s Senior Event Manager, Elissa, truly went above-and-beyond in ensuring we received all the help we needed, fulfilled every request, and was very proactive from day 1

Our guests who stayed at this hotel also told us about how much they enjoyed their stay, as this is a place that has pretty much everything on site (restaurant, coffee place, room service, etc) It was close enough to the freeways to allow for an easy drive in and was right across the street from a major shopping center, so it was in a pretty nice and lively areaThe hotel staff were also very accommodating with all of our guests who checked in, as I remember we had a few folks who needed XYZ support and it seemed like they definitely got it when they arrivedI also found this hotel to be very military friendly, as we had a small military service held here and they seemed more than okay with us doing our thingAlthough it is a bit pricey, I think it is well worth it because it seems like the staff and management really go all out to support the guests and ensure they have what they needI would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to host a major event (they have HUGE ballrooms that take up 3 floors of space!) and I’d also recommend it to anyone looking for a nice room to stay in with easy access to local food and drink, as they have both on siteIf you do plan to host an event here (like a wedding or a work meeting or whatever), I would highly recommend Elissa as she was really great to us and gave us a ton of supportThank you, Elissa!

Rooms are nice Looks like it was recently renovated Hotel is very busy; hard to get any upgrades

Very convenient to the mall next doorStaff very friendly and professional While they weren’t able to check me in when I arrived, they did their best to get me a decent room as soon as possible

Iwanda Williams

The hotel itself is beautiful But when I made my reservations and paid for this room, I was not informed that it was a hold of $100 per night until I arrived at the hotel The manager did reduce the hold but I ask for the corporate office number

Everything I call the number it’s a fast busy signal I will not stay at this overrated hotel again

We arrived very early, extremely tired after a night flight The staff was wonderful and told us to get some breakfast at their place and took care off all of our luggage After that we went to the beach with beach chair and bath towels from the hotel

They gave us an early access to the room and the luggage was already taken care ofThe room was a little bit smaller than it looks like on the pictures but the view was fantastic Big bathroom The bed was amazing but the sofa bed was terrible to sleep on for our teenagers The madras was thin and there was always some noise when mowing around during the nightAs this was pretty expensive nights compared to other hotel this period, we was surprised that they didn’t make the sofa bed before night time We took some pillows from our bed to the sofa bedThe most sad part is that the bathroom was not clean when we checked in On the floor under the sink there was a lot of red something and was easy to spotI told the reception and they said they would take care of it Later that evening they gave us extra new towels, but the floor was still the same… I told they about this the next morning and had the same answer as they day before The day went by and no one had cleaned the bathroom The next day I had to go look for the cleaner’s my self All the staff on the hotel was super nice and friendly A big plus

Our stay has been wonderful for the past few yearsThe hotel is in a great location and the staff has always been wonderfulMy family has been to this location for at least 3 years now

Every year, as we leave the premises we have scheduled our vacation for the next year It’s always the same time to celebrate a birthday This year we even spent 2 more days than our usual To my dismay, tonight’s evening manager tells me to my face that there is really nothing special about my family coming every year It is “supply and demand” and we are not any different from any other customer!! Really???I was trying to buy book our next year’s celebration as she was telling me thisI told her that I was extremely appalled!Is this what her company really expects of her??If that is the case, there shouldn’t be any customer loyalty to the very people that we believed had our interests always in their priority? My family is extremely disappointed 🙁

My Family and I (party of 9) booked 2 adjacent rooms together for the 4th of July weekend and we had an amazing experience! The staff was wonderful, great to talk to, easy to request items, and the hotel and rooms were clean The room was larger than standard, with a king bed and a foldout couch plus a kitchenette with a cooktop and refrigerator and microwave Plenty of space for storing all the luggage plus beach items

The Hotel provided beach towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, coolers, and kids sand toys, all complimentary! This is our new home away from home, definitely recommended to all!

Perfect hotel for the night before an early flight, especially on Southwest It’s an easy 10 minute walk to terminal 1This appears to be an older building, but the interior is very nice and new

We had a room on the south side of the hotel with great views of planes landing and taking offOur room with 2 queen beds not only had a table between the beds but also small tables on the outer sides of both beds With plenty of outlets everywhereRoom service was delicious and quick Paula was very helpful in taking our order and very pleasant when delivering itThe only negative was the rather large gap when the sliding door to the bathroom was closed

First the good: bed was comfortable, shower was warm, and the airport was closeThen the bad:1) the shower had spray going up on the ceiling and you could see the water marks from where it hadn’t been cleaned previously2) either the conditioner and body wash dispensers were broken or the cleaning staff never filled them (and I’m not sure which scenario is worse)

Additionally, the dispensers were locked to the wall so you couldn’t even try shaking it While I do carry my own products, it’s not something I usually check before getting in the shower, especially at a hotel that calls itself “Regency”3) the phone didn’t work Like, there was *no* power and no way to try plugging it in somewhere else By the time I realized this (due to wanting a wake-up call and again, who would check if the phone works at a posh hotel), there was no point in trying to get a new room since I’d have to be up in 4 hours4) tried turning off the lights and searched all over before realizing that one light had the switch *on* it unlike every other light in the room that had a switch on the wall Then tried turning off the final light (that had a dimmer) only to find it didn’t turn all the way off! It got stuck in a nightlight setting or something Flipped the switch multiple times and finally it turned offIf this was a budget hotel, I’d probably give it more stars but if I’m paying premium prices, I expect a premium product Would not recommend and would only stay here if literally every other hotel near LAX was booked

Last Friday, our late flight from LAX to LAS was cancelled – the last one out on Delta I quickly booked this hotel so we would not have to sleep on an airport floor or in an airport chair I’m so glad I booked this hotel

When we walked in the desk agent, Danielle, greeted us and asked how we were doing When I told her about the cancellation and how stressed we were – without us asking – she gave us two vouchers for breakfast (was not included in our quick reservation) and a late check out because we still needed to sort out a car to drive home She also gave us extra bottles of water, and couldn’t have been more empathetic and helpful I can’t tell you how fabulous it was to be treated so well, after being treated so poorly by DeltaThe hotel room itself was very good as was the breakfast the next day The waiter that gave us coffee, etc was also very cheerful and helpful but I didn’t get his name It’s definitely a good place to go especially during these days of endless flight cancellations
