The staff is friendly and the building itself was pretty quiet give its proximity to landing strips at LAX. The exercise facility is quite nice. The express breakfast is limited, but gives a few options. My room was not clean--and frankly wasn't ready when I checked in at 4:00 pm (no bath towels). Toilet didn't flush well. Water didn't drain well in shower.
Room had a stale smell. AC cut off and on all night and was very loud.
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE STAFF.....from our late check- in to shuttle arrival at LAX. Having limited knowledge of the vast local area, we chose this hotel because of the Wyndham name and its location to the airport. Each and every person of the staff treated us professionally, pleasantly and with a sense of real care regardless of the job description. Hats off to this team!
Easy access, comfy bed, great amenities (tea, coffee, hot water in the lobby), friendly staff The shower head and towels need updating
the location and being close to the airport for an early morning flight The hotel. The dirty worn out wallpaper, the broken AC units, the bathtubs that don't drain durning a shower. The hotel smelled like old cigarettes and the carpet in my room was dirty with crumbs. The pillows are all lumpy and half the size of a standard pillow. We requested different pillows but we're given the same type of gross lumpy pillows.
I called hotel 3 times and shuttle never came at airport. I had to wait for 1 hr finally I took a cab to hotel DO NOT take this hotel if you want shuttle from airport.
great breakfast included. airport shuttle was very convenient. staff was friendly. bed was comfortable and everything was clean and up to date.
Super amazing beds! Breakfast is decent. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Climate control didn't work in room, I don't think it worked on the entire floor so be sure to ask about it when you check in. Hair dryer was from the 80's. Parking for $15 seemed excessive.
Close to airport
Called ahead to let them know I would arrive late. They said no problem. When I arrive they gave my room away and instead of 2 beds we got a bed and a pullout. Not OK. The first room they gave us had no water pressure so we had to move to another room. The front desk attendant had absolutely no remorse or empathy about the situation. Terrible service complete and total liars...
All aspects of this bed and breakfast were top rate. the room and living areas were clean and spacious and the breakfast was very good. If there was any complaint it was that the street the hotel was located on could have been a little nicer. Also it was about a 15 minute walk to the beach.
Our room was very big and had an amazing view. The parking situation was a little confusing at first until we talked to the hotel staff. The staff could have been a little nicer as well.
Marina Totality , needs upgraded , bathrooms , amenities , need more restaurants .
I like the avalibiliy of the staff For a younger crowd in there 25-30 age it's not an appeasing hotel it's more for older crowd like 50-60 so for me being a pro Olympic athlete and being 23 yrs old I didn't enjoy it that much
Staff is great, and generally a very nice hotel. Doesn't live up to our expectations based on previous experiences at other Ritz hotels. It feels tired, not as luxurious as others, and is starting to show some age without upkeep. A simple example would be the pool has cracked tiles and feels rundown.
Hotel staff was outstanding; from valet, front desk & concierge all the way through to pool attendants, room service and bell desk.
Nice place, but not worth the Ritz premium. I would stay at the JW Marriott in Santa Monica next time I'm in the area.
the location room service food. the french soup was disgusting. There was also no glasses in the room. time it took to get the food valet parking took 15 mins to get our car
I can't begin to find words to express how much we enjoyed our stay at the Marina del Rey Ritz Carlton! We arrived on a Wednesday morning with a sick child. The staff immediately took charge helping to get us situated with a room and going so far above and beyond ensuring that our stay was enjoyable. From the person who greeted us to take our luggage, to the valet, to the front desk staff to the wait staff in the restaurant and the gift shop (which opened up for us to get us meds in the middle of the night) to the manager who followed up even after we had left their hotel, every layer was kind, attentive and fantastic! They honestly made us feel like we were at home with family who was concerned about us. What a fantastic experience! T
The location to the sea.Very attractive forecourt.Very attentive staff especially bell boys.The room was very spacious and had a good view to the sea. Far too expensive to park car at hotel.Should have been coffee-making facilities in the room.Very surprised as all the other hotels we have stayed at in the States have this and should be standard in a hotel of this standing.
excellent position, very good staff, clean, nice
It was charming, room and bed comfortable with a deck overlooking pool. Im fussy and i found it a pleasant experience quiet, clean and relaxing. Staff excellent and a short walk to beach, handy to shops and restaurants.
The pillows and bed were excellent. Made for a refreshing stay.
Smoke in the room from the vent. Pillows feels like straw filling. Bedding ok. It is not a Fairmont standard.
Nice staff, pretty garden , I reccomend bungalows, good restaurants. Very good localization near ocean but also close to schopping places. I reccomend this hotel.
Location of the hotel was perfect. . Staffs were very kind. Special thanks to , the bell guy. No microwave in the entire hotel area at all. I needed a refridge instead of the minibar. No laundry room even though this hotel is located at the beach.
Location -staff -pool-room No
The staff was exceedingly helpful and accommodating. The location was outstanding.
Modern design and green/eco-friendly. Great location. Going to the parking ramp, having the car brought over and then having to drive oneself out is pushing the concept of valet. (Upon arrival it was drop at the front door.)
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
location and every room has a balcony
Location Staff and service
Great location. Friendly atmosphere. Tourist trap, small room & terrible view for a high price. Thought it was a chic-hotel, but instead felt like a hotel on the Vegas strip. It was a bit cheesy, and for the price I would've expected it to be more upscale.
Great location and modern building. Staff was outstanding and overall the stay was really quite delightful
Room was very clean, great shower, friendly daytime staff. Extras once arriving were a bit much. $35 per night for valet parking + tip = $40+, expensive minibar & snacks in room, extra charge for faster internet. Overall star rating should be 3.5.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Location We were given a room in first floor next to kitchen!! Every day we would wake up at 5:00am by the noise coming from there. Absolutely horrible experience. I complained. A lady from staff called me saying that they would change our room. never happened!
Ambiance was great from the beachy/sea vibe in the lobby with the "flying" seagull sculptures hanging from the ceiling a wonderful scent machine in the lobby that makes you feel like you are at the beach. Very romantic setting at the outside bar complete with couches and fire pits. Beds were super comfortable. $30/day for valet parking is a bit steep when there is plenty of parking around the hotel. Give an option for people to park their own cars, even if you have to charge a fee.
Vibrant lounge with a nice view of the marina. $30 valet only parking option!! Weird odor in the room
The remodel is first class. The front desk service was fine. The dining was terrible. Slow inattentive service, overdone steak, raw salmon, overpriced.
We loved the view, facilities, great beds and location of the hotel. No complaints.
My husband and I had a fabulous stay at the Marina del Rey Hotel. Our room had a amazing view of the marina, was very well appointed and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to that part of LA.
Everthing about this hotel was great the location and the staff were excellent.the room was great and had the most comfortable bed of all the hotels we strayed at during our trip to the U.S. its a very charming place to stay and I would definatly recommend this hotel and the area for your stay in la. The only problem was there was a lot of street noise at the back of the hotel in the morning but it was'nt a big deal. Also you have to pay for parking at the hotel which is $21 a night. Cheaper parking is available in the area.
Location, cosy feel, helpful staff Bathroom felt a bit dated (but it was perfectly adequate), no reply to an email query I sent following my stay
Had the charm of an old classic hotel, yet the rooms were fully updated and quite comfortable. Great small hotel feeling. Close to the pier, shopping, and dining options Just hate paying for parking, yet you are right in the middle of Santa Monica. Just an pet peeve, not a negative for the hotel.
Excellent location with a strong own atmosphere and beautiful location
Everything The constant noise on the backside of the hotel, probably some type of generator.
The intimacy of the hotel - it is private and feels far less commercial than the larger international hotels.
Great hotel with soem real history in a great location. They ahve done a great job of up-dating without losing the history. The staff were very friendly and helpful. No.
The hotel is very welcoming and and has an overall relaxed vibe. excellent location. it's very vintage in its deco look, but well maintained. you feel like you've stepped back in time. quite charming. and, the staff is very gracious without being intrusive. I actually have no negatives. my experience was ideal!
Nice staff. Neat building. Little expensive. Great food.
A very good hotel in the right location There was nothing i didn't like about this hotel
Lobby and common areas are fine/good. Illy espresso maker in room is good. Free parking was nice and offered glass of sparkling wine on arrival. Stuck us in a room that was like a prison cell with a Queen bed. King room was paid for and others were open. Shower barely allowed me to turn around and did not have a ledge for soap/toiletries so had to leave those on the ground. Also right next to an elevator bank. Room was not exactly clean either, mainly in the bathroom. Absolutely unacceptable. Highly disappointed because it was not cheap.
Did not lume anything. Lots of disssapointments First of all very very dirty hotel. Carpet not even vacuum and very dirty. Very small restroom. No minibar. The mezzanine restaurant closed at 10 and was very small. Waiters and valet parking guys nearly speaks English. Low cost employees and very unfriendly. Way too expensive hotel. Ugly expeirence.
The location, parking facility, good service including business assistance with computer, The room change with rate change was not recorded so I was overcharged and had to fix this at check out, this caused a delay and unnecessary hassle.
Nothing Horrible housekeeping Late food arrival Couldn't get in touch with room service Cold shower Creepy placd
The service desk was very helpful and generous. The hotel is in a good location and has a cool aesthetic. LM 100 smells awesome.
Nice that they had free bikes available for use. Nice decor. Nice staff. Decent location, but not much within walking distance unless you are ok walking more than a half mile. Bikes are not available when it's dark out.
Classy design of the hotel. Would have liked a DVD player in the room
Great café/bar room in mezzanine. Terrific customer service. Bicycles available without rental fee.
I was really impressed with the price of this hotel, the food was fantastic and the location was great.
The beds were so comfy and inviting. The staff was very professional and kind. Free parking. Very nice stay We had no complaints.
The bed was unbelievably good.
The views were excellent. The towels and robes were excellent. The ambiance was nice. The bed was really comfortable, I fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. The toiletries (soap, lotion) were insufficient, of inferior quality. The walls were paper thin, we could hear every conversation, every cough from next door and in the hallway, although we were on a starwood preferred guest floor.
Room was very nice, comfortable, breakfast was great, location next to an exit for I405 was good, its LA you have to have a car No
It was a peaceful getaway for me and my wife. Very enjoyable and relaxing. Room service was magnificent.
We had a very pleasant, two night stay at the Ayres Hotel, which is quite a specialty. It's a "European Classic Style" hotel in a modern business like location. The staff was very friendely, the room nice, the beds comfortable and the restaurant (also for the included breakfast) is very nice for the price. Recommended.
Hotel facilities were excellent for families. Breakfast was well received by parents with good selection of cereals and fruit and less focus on hot meals.
good value for the price
Hotel is located near the international aeroport, it is very convenient for travelers. We liked a really nice design and spaciousness of the room, friendly hotel staff, simple and free of charge parking near the hotel All restaurants and bars except McDonalds are closed after 10pm
It looks like an arts museum. We felt very cosy with its European charm, classy decor and inner courtyard. Amazing amenities for budget-savvy travelers, that we haven't encountered at this class of hotels before: microwave and fridge in the room, in couple with free Internet and free parking it gave an excellent value for the money paid. Staff is going out of the way to help, very friendly and professional. Everything was spotless and everything worked! Matisse restaurant exceeded our expectations with great food and service for the prix fixe menu. Breakfast was filling and tasty (loved the roasted potatoes!) And late checkout (12 p.m.) worked very nicely into our lazy vacation schedule:) Could not quite find anything wrong... Keep the excellent job going, folk! It was kinda far from most of places tourists flock in, but close to the airport.
The room size and location
Nice pictures from russian soviet times :) Maybe not so fast brekfast
We stayed at Ayres Hotel at the beginning of our trip through California. It is conveniently located near LA airport. From here it's a short trip to either Disneyland, Beverly Hills, Hollywood of any of the beaches near Santa Monica, Venice or Manhatta Beach. Staff was very friendly and the Matiss restaurant serves excellent diner. Both the lounge menu and the entrees contain very well-tasting choices. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of this in-hotel restaurant. Furthermore, we were welcomed with Mexican-style music as a wedding was going on at our arrival.
atmosphere, comfort, russian oil paintings breakfat (organisation)
They did not have our reservation when we checked in; after calling twice to confirm. During those two calls, I was put on hold for thirty minutes the first time and eight minutes the second time..finally, they confirmed. Yet, upon arrival, they did not have our reservation and I had to check my confirmation email on my phone to prove it. No "sorry" gifts/amenities were given.
The hotel decor was pretty sterile. The Viceroy across the street was much more esthetically pleasing. The pool was ok, not great. The coffee bar was under staffed and looked temporary. Good for location. Staff cheerful, but not what I expected.
Everyone went above and beyond to make the stay comfortable.
Parking fee not included in stay
Room was nice and clean Parking for $37, valet only was a rip-off!
Service Rooms not ready for check in
The service and staff were great - hotel is very nice!
lovely room but we upgraded and the pool are and roof top very nice. Our only concern were the staff who didnt really have a clue apart from the bell boy and valets. Wake up calls always 15 -30 mins late/fridge didnt get replenished unless we asked
location very central and just had major face lift really noisy at night - great if you are a party animal!
online it told me that the pool and bar would be open. Felt deceived!!! Bathroom door was broken, dirt in the bathtub, too much light in the AM, workers making lots of noise at 8am to fix pool area, bar on roof and pool not open even though it said it was online and that was the whole reason to go there. Took my boyfriend for 40th and highly disappointed. I was embarrassed!!!!!
The hotel was beautiful & the staff was very friendy. The food was very good & the location was perfect for our honeymoon.
Location, decor, staff and double bath n/a
Please don't waste your money The staff was extremely rude, flowers were delivered to me that I didn't get untill a day and a half later, room service was poor, room is dirty, I would rate this a two star hotel.
Good location, nice pool and open dining space Friend staffs None
Santa Monica is the best place to stay in LA for pleasure, and for business travelers with a little extra time for commute. The Shangri-La is the hippest, best place on the water. We've stayed at Shutters and Casa del Mar - eaten at Viceroy. Shangri La beats them all. authentic updated Art Deco, great size, pool, rooftop bar with view of the Santa Monica pier and beach. No question - the go-to place in LA . The New York Times Travel Section agrees. And this is not paid or sponsored - I am a real person - stayed with my daughter on her school break. Loved it! Anne We had to leave
All the Art Deco features. Its a beautifully renovated hotel. We booked the Deluxe room because it was a bigger room & couldnt really fault it. The bathroom has a big bath tub in it & the room is full of Art Deco detail. Hotel staff were extremly friendly & helpful. Hotel is right across from the beach therefore great views. If you have time go up to the rooftop bar. Great views. No water provided in the rooms. Internet facilities for people that dont have a laptop arnt that convenient. Internet is only free for the first 15 min & then you need to pay. Only one computer available right in the lobby no no real privacy either, very distracting. The hotel room rates are a little pricy but we enjoyed our stay.
Good location, friendly staff, clean room A bit expensive
The city was cleaning a parking garage opposite of the hotel during the night for two nights in a row, which was extremely noisy, therefore I checked out after two nights. I had a small room without a desk an therefore I think $300 per night was too much.
love the Viceroy feel, decor and spaciousness. The bathroom was not quite as large as the Viceroy in Miami, but nice nonetheless. great water pressure too! the TV on the wall was massive, perhaps the largest I've ever seen in a hotel room. Was quite surprised there is no coffee whatsoever in the room. While they offer 'free' coffee from an urn in the lobby to guests, you still have to get dressed and go down the elevator to get. Miami room had an espresso machine; that should be standard.
The hotel was conveniently located near the beach and restaurants. Hotel rented out pool area for private Lincoln event so guests had no access to entire outdoor pool area for all of Saturday, which was a big appeal of this hotel. Rundown with duct tape on the hallway carpets. They overcharged me for a number of items.
Very quiet and well appointed rooms. Nice pool area. Difficult to get staff help after late arrival. Surcharge for 'coffee service' seems lame given hotel class.
Lovely, fresh interior. Friendly staff/ Our room was adjacent to the fitness center and someone was weight lifting (and dropping) heavy weights at 6:30 a.m. I thought gun shots were going off.
Rooms are well thought out. I wish that the cafe in the lobby would have more options.
Miguel was fabulous and helped us in many ways, he went above and beyond. The entire staff was friendly and helpful The music on the roof did keep us up, and the ear plugs cost money
Was given great upgrade; rooftop is fantastic Absolutely everything was great!
The hotel is realy gret. Great staff, wonderful instalations..... So I really could live there. The price and the cost to park, once the garage is inside the building of the hotel.
We loved the new and greatly designed rooms, as well as the young atmosphere of the hotel. The rooftop bar will take off - it is a great place. We will be back! The staff needs some more time together to make everything run smoothly. But they were always very nice and friendly - thanks for a great time with you!
Hotel Erwin is perfectly located on Venice beach, the staff is excellent, restaurant serves excellent breakfasts, nothing to complain about.
It was close and convenient to my son who lives in Venice. Stayed there in Dec. in the newer rooms on the top floor which was much nicer than the room I had this time. Also, I think the 6th. floor room was about the same price as the room where I was this time.(5th floor) Yes, I opened the sliding door during the night for some fresh air. It was difficult to sleep because of the noise(homeless sleeping in the alley) that my room overlooked.
Great location, very new, and very nice staff! Perfect place in Venice.
We loved the location, cleanliness, size of the room and price. Room service- the breakfast was awful! We didn't eat all of it because it was a soggy wet fried egg sandwich with rolls of lunch meat and wet uncooked spinach. Honestly don't get breakfast there. Also the front desk girl didn't make eye contact or smile once- not sure why but that got to me.
Overall we loved the hotel and will go back. Very clean, comfortable, quiet. Nice restaurant/bar upstairs. Courtyard peaceful. Staff very friendly. The paintings of the "Barbie"-like girls in the hallway were odd.
Love the idea if complementary cookies. I didn't eat any but the idea is great. Thanks. They nickle and dime you on the breakfast. $9.99 for a bowl of oatmeal. Nooooo! So sad. $30.00 for the two of us to have eggs, sausage and potatoes. Really. And the OJ was a separate charge, ouch.
The hotel has many positives such as: clean surroundings, friendly staff, great food, free wifi, & an inexpensive valet. N/A
I arrived late because my flight from Miami was delayed a few hours. As I walked in around midnight, the staff helped me load up my suitcases into a trolley and directed me to where I could take my dog out for a walk. I ordered a breakfast that night for sometime between 9:00am and 9:30am the following morning, and it arrived promptly by 9:05am. The staff also allowed for a later check-out at 12:30pm to give me time to maneuver my belonging and dog. Overall, it was a pleasant experience. I would recommend. They stopped serving food for room service pretty early.
Clean. Staff is very friendly. Has a nice vibe. Close to airport. My room particularly overlooked busy street. Decent stay for decent price
I really thought the room was lovely--large. Things seemed updated and clean. Bed was fairly comfortable--everything worked well. Staff was warm and friendly. Cookies in the afternoon provided at front desk. First bellman didn't tell us that we could stay parked in the Handicapped Parking spot in front. Second bellman did, but a $10.00 charge appeared on the final bill. Staff took it off when I explained. Requested 4 pillows and a view as our most important request. No view and only 2 pillows on bed when we arrived. Bellman brought two more pillows after a phone call. Artwork in hallway is a series of gigantic pictures of 1950 ish dolls---creepy. Including a 5X7 framed photo of one of the doll pictures on the desk in the room. i could see one, but entire hall lined with them.
The room decor and space were both excellent. The bed felt firm in an inexpensive fashion, but was still reasonable in comfort. The real reason for the low rating in an otherwise four star establishment was the complete lack of hot water pressure at 1030 am on a weekday.
The staff couldn't have been nicer and it made the stay that much more enjoyable! Highly recommended and will stay here again!
Very comfortable beds. Love the hip decor. Would come back again. Really Nice people. In general we really enjoyed Manhattan Beach more than other coastal cities. It's less cramped feeling and has a wonderful Beach. Valet parking. I'm guessing you could park in neighboring streets if you wanted. It's on a busy street but it's nestled back a bit so you don't feel it.
I was very disapointed with my room..... Front desk staff very nice. I asbar staff very unfriendly..will probally not stay here again. For the price of room very dissapointed.
The staff was amazing very friendly and helpful Hotel needs to be renovated probably nice in the 90s. Way over priced. $35/day for parking and $15/day for wifi. I would not stay here again and I def would not recommend this hotel to anyone. very disappointing.
It was really terrific...
Shower would flood whenever we used it and the toilet kept malfunctioning.
Staff was amazing Hotel was tired , carpet needs replacing, very tired
I had a flight in the early morning so I stayed here for one night. Room was spacious, clean, and convenient. Price to value was perfect. Free secure parking but you have to walk back down the parking lot and enter the building from the front instead of through the parking lot. The best thing is that it was 8 minutes from the airport! The area was a little sketchy and not a lot of food options near by. The woman at the front desk in the morning could have been a little more helpful. We left our car keys and room key in the room while rushing to our flight, and we had to wait for her to "finish her transaction" in order to get the keys. Breakfast eggs were not fresh and you could taste it but there were plenty of other options.
Check in was super fast. Parking was free & in a gated parking garage which gives peace of mind. Hotel looked updated and clean. Room was clean and roomy. Bathroom was telling perfect size. Wifi was free which is always great. TV worked well. The hotel room bed was super comfy. And the breakfast in the morning deserves a 5 star rating! Shower was probably the only downside.. the water was luke warm at its hottest & I didn't like the shower head water settings.
Staff very friendly and accomodating. Was having work done on my apartment and needed a place to crash. everything was fine
I've stayed here twice. Both times were great. Clean rooms and bathroom. Comfortable beds. Pillows a little flat. Clean modern feel establishment. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Nice continental breakfast. If you have the time you can monitor the rates and save at least $20 off the normal daily rate. Love this hotel. Will continue to use as my primary place to stay. If you aren't familiar with the city it can appear to be a bad area. It's really not bad but it's definitely not Beverly Hills. All the major fast food places are in walking distance. Close to the airport and freeway. Needs to put a microwave in the lobby with continental breakfast.
We booked through a travel site and Hampton Inn staff was ill-prepared. Although we paid for three nights, Hampton Inn checked us out after the first night and I had to check us in again. Moreover, we were charged again for the stay even though we paid up front through the travel site. Getting our money back or to even get Hampton Inn to recognize the error was a nightmare. We recommended Hampton Inn to our relatives who were also staying for the Thanksgiving holiday. Because of my wife and I, Hampton Inn booked four rooms. Never again! We will never stay at a Hampton Inn again.
Very clen, good breakfast and friendly staff.
I booked a handicapped accessible room online and when checking in they had no record. Other than the booking problem I thought it was an excellent hotel.
Everything was wonderful. The rooms are nice spacious and clean. The service was excellent. the breakfast was hot fresh and had many items. The indoor heated pool was very nice for the kids as we went in December and the weather was a bit chilly. Parking is free and the attached garage has plenty of space. Nothing
We were in a room that was recently updated, and although not very big is was well laid out and had many practical features. It was also very clean, including the inside of drawers. And we had a partial ocean view which was very nice. No.
Every time you walked into the hotel their were staff members saying hello and ready to help with anything you needed.
Swanky and super clean rooms and close to the beach.

Location and atmosphere. Restaurant was closed one night for private party - and 'traffic' in lobby was a little intrusive.

The location was vital to our stay. It was within easy walking distance of shopping and eating places. The manner of nickel / diming that they did. There was no coffee maker in the room forcing us to go down each morning to get our coffee in the lobby store. Parking was way overpriced at just under $50.
Location. Adjoining room with group of partying people next door. The door was neither sound nor light proof. Security called 4 times and no effort made to stop disruption. Terrible experience. Would never stay here again or recommend it to anyone else.
The location of the hotel was perfect. You can walk easily to the pier along with tons of restaurants and shops close by. I didn't realize that this hotel did not have a pool which is a real downer.
Quiet and away from the hustle of the city. Easy to walk to shops and restaurants. No pool
