Reviewed 4 March 2012

Great location. Lovely staff. Very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Tea,coffee 24/7. Continental breakfast. Wine and nibbles at 5pm. Rooms aren't big but they're well fitted out. And not much view from the rooms. But all the attractions are within walking distance.

My room was smallish but furnished with all the essentials yet not overcrowded. The bed was so very comfortable. There are no elevators but the staff is helpful with the luggage. The entire place is very clean and tastefully decorated.
Best of all is the personal service; I felt not like a guest in a hotel but like a guest in a friend's house. Larry, Charles and their staff are most attentive, courteous, and helpful.
Wonderful people. Wonderful place.

Incredible friendliness on the part of everyone, great personal attention (and advice). I was going to stay in LA but decided to look for something closer to my meetings site. A lucky (and wise) decision. I'll be back (as the former governor of California has been known to say).

Charles, Larry and staff run a lovely hotel that is in downtown. Clean rooms, personal attention, and very reasonable rates are all good enough reasons to stay here. But the hotel is walking distance to a wide variety of restaurants, bars, the Queen Mary...great location for the Long Beach Grand Prix...

The rooms remind me of hotels I've stayed at in Europe, except the bathroom isn't down the hall. You get one in your room!! Sure, they are small, so if you feel like you need a big old room to sleep in, there are more expensive places...if you are happy with a comfortable bed, and a clean room then this place is it.

Morning coffee, and evening wine are also nice touches. All in all, a great place to stay.

Comfort, cozy, clean, chic, affordable local hotel with "free" wi- fi, heavenly bed, keurig coffee maker, and a glass of wine at the end of the day made this trip/hotel a memorable one. Rooms are small, yet include everything you need. The VIP treatment that I received from Charles, Larry, and entire staff was amazing-from walking me to the room at check in, making restaurant recommendations, to having a cup of coffee as well as my printed boarding pass ready upon check out was fantastic!
