I have visited Pacific Palisades on many different occasions sometimes with friends sometimes just my husband and I. It has always been terrific! There is a great restaurant right next-door with room service if you'd like; the ocean is just a few minutes away - you can see it from your room (if you get an ocean view). The town...

I stayed at this hotel because of the convenience that's near the Legoland (family trip) since I don't drive. I also like to mentioned the hotel staffs are great, especially one of the shuttle car drivers, his name is Richard. He's very friendly and on time when we called for him to pick us up and drive us to places...

The resort went beyond our expectations in catering to kids! There were daily activities, movies and a water park with the pool that was the perfect size for our little one. We were never at a loss for something to do. In addition, Sean, the front desk manager, was beyond helpful and kind in helping us whenever we had a...

The kids pool is in a different location on the property and is huge. Our kids enjoyed their time here immensely. There was a kids club and a...

I stayed here in a suite and the room was great. The hotel was oddly empty, but that worked out well for me. I liked the pool, the parking was conveniently located downstairs, and I had a nice time cooking in the small kitchen. All in all a great experience. However, there are some flower fields nearby and I got...

To treat our family we decided to go to Legoland and spend the night at this hotel the night before. Check in for the two and three bedroom suites is not until 5 PM. It was very unfortunate that our room was not ready until 5:50 PM. The hotel is definitely short staffed in terms of housekeeping and it shows....
