Fodor's Review

Music rules in this mission-style building, from the darkly amusing Hotel California quote above the entrance, "You can check out any time you like...But you can never leave," to public areas decorated with rock memorabilia, including an Elvis jump suit, Madonna's "Like a Prayer" costume, and Elton John's boots. Guests can live like rock stars in stylishly modern, newly renovated rooms, with deluxe bed linens, an entertainment center with flat-panel TV, and lots of accessible media device plugs. The rock and roll artwork in the rooms includes a wall mirror etched with the heights of famous musicians and drumstick graphics. Hotel key cards allow guests to enter parks early and skip the lines.
