Fodor's Review

Hotelier André Balazs created this playful Sunset Strip hotel with '70s kitsch out of a former retirement home. Tokens of the '70s aethestic include pop art, shag carpets, and ultrasuede sectionals in the lobby, and beanbag chairs, surfboard tables, and Warhol poppy-print curtains in the rooms. After a decade of heavy use, rooms show the wear-and-tear, and service issues and staff attitudes are commonplace. DJs spin nightly and lobby socializing begins at the front desk

and extends to the newly reimagined pool deck outside. At this writing, the hotel was adding a new restaurant.

If you want to be treated badly....

...then stay at the standard. The rooms are like dorm rooms. The service is the worst I have ever had anywhere. The atmosphere is ok. Don't ask for anything to be brought to your room unless you want to call them 3 times to get it and you might not get it anyway. If you decide you can't take it anymore and want to change hotels...they could care less. I guess the only good thing is they don't charge you anything for checking out early!
