This hotel is beyond disappointing. Our room was a box with 2 windows facing a wall under the stairs. The pool is tiny and very unappealing. What this "hotel" is is a cheap motel. The had an LA designer attach his name to the decor. Planted some plants around a tiny pool and tryed to make it chic. It isn't. We picked this place because departures magazine listed it as one of the great hotels in 2008. If it was then, it isn't any more. We thought we'd stay at a cute boutique hotel rather than a huge 5 pool, 800 room hotel. We shouldn't have, at least not here. Don't stay here. If you can get a room here for $150, maybe. We are paying $400 a night, for $500 a night we could have been at the Four Seasons in Santa Barbara.
