                                    Good facilities. Very comfortable room set up.

                                    Parking rate too high but valet persons great.

                                    The staff was really nice and helpful.

                                    I didn't like how there was no parking for guests included with the rooms. It was very expensive to pay 25 extra dollars a day just to park our car.

                                    Reservations staff and management staff. Los Angeles has already a bad reputation concerning tourists and this hotel makes everything that is possible to confirm that. They are unhelpful, unconcerned and obviously do not care a bit about their customers. I doubt they have many repeat customers, but I assume they can make it just because of the sheer volume of tourists.

                                    6.2

                                    The rooms are large and comfortable and the hotel is in a good location. Although the hotel was busy it had a relaxed atmosphere.

                                    For some reason all the TV's in the rooms we booked came on during the night, waking us up. Also there seemed to be some confusion regarding billing, the hotel trying to charge us for the rooms we had already paid for through Booked.net.

                                    9.2

                                    The location to LAX was good and the service from the staff was excellent. The hotel was very close to the shopping areas in Santa Monica.

                                    4.2

                                    It was very ordinary. The room was not very clean, the aircon was so noisy one could not sleep at night and the curtains were blackened from the aircon vents. The facilities were the bare minimum and considering that the rate was over $300 per night (this being the most expensive we paid), it is the worst value for money we experienced in all 5 hotels that we stayed at during our trip to the USA.

                                    10.0

                                    The hotel is in a great location. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. I would recommend anyone to stay there and I would consider staying again.

                                    I didn't like that the hotel didn't honor the Booked.net price. I had to pay full price after speaking back and forth with the double tree and Booked.net. The staff was patient and assisted in any way they could.

                                    The lay out as it was a suite.

                                    Bedroom was facing a main road and the noise was horrendous. Made sleeping for me impossible. ( my husband can sleep through anything) I was forced to buy ear plugs (sold n the hotel shop) Although they helped a little they were very uncomfortable as kept waking up because of them. The Hotel was a bit too far from the shopping and beach area for us. There were plenty of buses tho but it took us a few days to find out about them ll

                                    A very good and practical hotel. The stars of the show are the valet parking team though - incredibly helpful and friendly and also mightily efficient. The suites are a decent size with good facilities. The rooms are quiet but the Overall a nice stay.

                                    WIFI is incredibly poor - in this day and age this is not acceptable but they know this and I think are going to do something about it.

                                    Booked hotel for 4 people, 2 adults, 2 children. Recieved confirmation email that only stated 2 people. Phoned up to confirm that was for 4 people., spent 30 mins on phone. When arrived at hotel, was told that booking was only for 2 people, had to pay an extra $30 a night to book for 4 people, even though had originally booked for 4.
