Small and modest, and a favorite of international travelers, this hotel has an enviable location within walking distance of some of the city's best restaurants and the Beverly Center. Guests have been known to forgo car rentals as there's DASH service to the nearby Farmers Market; Beverly Hills is a short hop via taxi. Guest rooms are compact with mostly nondescript views. Blond wood accents and black-and-white photographs enliven the otherwise plain rooms. In the streetside lobby lounge you can have coffee while you navigate the Net or enjoy the daily afternoon wine and cheese nosh.
