Quite a nice place, our room - 2 double beds - was a good size, clean; bathroom could have been a little nicer, fixtures were a bit old. Interesting or weird - depending on your taste - art in hallways and rooms, good size flat screen TV. We encountered two glitches - lack of hot water one day, confusion about valet parking - but staff was quick to respond and my bill was immediately adjusted accordingly when I asked. Nice little coffee shop-type restaurant - we had breakfast there every day - with great service and very good food. Also rooftop bar which we never got to. Yes, it's Venice - grungy, lots of young people and a few homeless people hanging around, boardwalk-type shops and restaurants, noisy at night in January, probably quite noisy at night in summer - and yes it's LA - expensive . If you're looking for 4 star amenities this isn't it. But I doubt you could do better for this price in LA.
