1. Front desk staff, Mya and one other, called me by name each time I passed by for two days. Where else does that ever happen? 2. Very friendly and helpful for directions and restaurant suggestions. 3. Great breakfast selections. 4. Extremely clean. 5. A nice outdoor seating area on the forth floor. 6. A little noisy when the lead foots were getting on the freeway. 7. The garage entrance is a little tricky. Stay close to the curb as you round the corner or you will be on the 405 8. We will stay there again.

Great location to stay while visiting the Santa Monica Pier. The front desk staff were friendly and made us feel very welcomed. They allowed us to check in early. Our room was very cozy, clean and comfortable.

The experience back in LA after almost 10 years was wonderful as the location was ideal, the property and rooms were well cared for and the staff was incredible. Everyone was attentive and friendly no matter what time of the day or night!

I have stayed at this particular hotel quite often since 2013 and have never been disappointed. This time I was very irritated by two obnoxious staff members. One was the housekeeping man and the other was Adriana at the front desk. I had a very long drive to the hotel in traffic that was very slow due to construction beginning in Santa Barbara. I hadn't eaten all day, so after I checked in, I ordered delivery from my favorite Chinese restaurant. I received notification that the delivery person was on the way and went down to the lobby to meet her. It took about 10 minutes for her to arrive so I just hung out by the elevator to wait. I accidentally hit the call button and the elevtor doors opened up. I could hear the mopping guy and desk agent speaking in Spanish and laughing and a few seconds later Adriana peeked around the corner and started laughing. I don't know why it was so funny to see me leaning on the wall by the elevator waiting for my dinner, but it was rude and obnoxious to make fun of me.

Hey Libby, I know I already reached out to you directly regarding this review, but I wanted to reiterate how sorry I am that you experienced a less then pleasant interaction while staying at our property. I can assure you that my team would never intentionally try to make a guest uncomfortable, but regardless I do understand that perception can very easily become reality. I have taken the time to speak with each team member that worked that day, as well as the rest of the front desk agents to use this as an opportunity to further train them on the importance of always conducting themselves professionally. Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you have anything you further you'd like to discuss. Sincerely, Devon Davidson General Manager

It was an awesome time at the hotel. Very clean and consumer friendly. My only issue was parking fees of $20 daily as an IHG member. Wish I could have gotten a discounted price for parking. Hope I’m the near future thee will be laundry access whereby guests can wash their own clothes conveniently instead of going outside to find a laundry to wash clothes. It’s great that you offered freer breakfast at least to guests who prefer that kind of service. Overall I had a wonderful time at the hotel and it was clean. Another downside is that it’s not mandatory to clean guest rooms daily and the request to clean rooms is 24 hours ahead. I think rooms should be cleaned daily and change wash rags and towels daily.

Nice hotel in Santa Monica only 4 miles from the wedding venue in Malibu. Due to heavy traffic in downtown Santa Monica & on PCH it took almost 30 minutes to drive the 4 miles. Hotel is nice & in a good location for SM visit. Restaurant looked nice and I enjoyed the Starbucks right outside the restaurant entrance. Would stay here again, but it is pricey.

This is one of the best run hotels I have ever stayed at. My room was super clean and everything worked perfectly. Management was very accommodating. There was a good size refrigerator, microwave and Keurig coffee maker and very quiet (facing an alley to the south). Breakfast was spectacular, both in variety and presentation. Every day a different style of eggs was offered, along with potatoes, bacon or sausage. There was also cereal, oatmeal, breads, pastries and fruit available to please all. I especially appreciated the fact that the selection of hot foods varied each morning and the area for eating breakfast was spacious and comfortable. The hotel is no in a picturesque location and the surrounding neighborhood has little to offer. But the Plan Check restaurant two blocks away on Sawtelle, is worth a visit. And if you’re looking to meet “interesting” people, don’t overlook the 7-Eleven just across the street :-) All in all, this is one of the best places to stay if you prefer the west side, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills and West Hollywood.

Stayed here Superbowl weekend. My family and I checked in a little after 7pm. The front desk team lacked customer service, not very enthusiastic about checking guest in. The room was ok. Found various random hairs in the restroom, including around the toilet. The location was great and parking was a breeze,however, we probably wouldn't stay here again.

My family and I had driven to LA to drop off my sister for college. We needed a hotel that was conveniently close to my sister apartment complex and came across this Holiday Inn Express on Santa Monica BLVD. Upon arrival, the front desk lady, Marigold greeted us with a smile. She knew I was an IHG member and waived our parking and early check in fee. She was so nice and welcoming! She even recommended a few places to visit around the area. The room was perfect for my family and I for our one night stay. It was clean and we were on the floor with the sun deck which was nice too!! The next morning we had their complimentary breakfast which surprisingly had SO much options! I didn't expect the breakfast to be pretty good. Upon checkout, Marigold helped us so seamlessly. Will definitely be back!

Azela at the front desk made the check in experience incredibly smooth, quick, and informative. Just a pleasant greeting overall. I travel 70% of the year but haven’t spent much time in this part of LAX… so I had questions about nearby dining, walkability of the area, ballpark distance to the beach… Azela answered all of them promptly and even gave me a bunch of ideas for different dining options nearby. Great experience. Clean rooms. Easy parking.
