nice property ideal for a stopover by plane. if you are in the middle of your trip you can also stay there as there are the shuttles that live every day on the hour to take you to Hollywood, the beaches and so on. lVery close to the airport with free shuttle to and from.
This hotel is supposed to be only two blocks from the LAX airport, but I would not walk that on those roads. Instead, I took the hotel's complimentary airport shuttle service, which runs at least every 30 minutes all day and night--a great service! My room was spacious and had granite countertops, but the all of the lights kept buzzing. A colleague got a corner room that was tiny, so I guess that I lucked out with my room. The hotel building has four restaurants conveniently located on the main floor. The employees at the front desk were friendly. I would probably stay at this hotel again in the future, mostly because of the close location to the airport with the free shuttle bus.
The Julian Rouas Paris perfumes make people sick! They come with a laundry list of side effects. Julian Rouas Paris' s toxic chemical-laden fragrances are known to trigger crippling headaches, skin rash, heart palpitation, sneezing frenzy and eye irritation. Unless you work in a chemical factory, the Julian Rouas Paris perfumes will make you cringe! They have a foul-urine smell, ironically, they seem to be the perfumes of choice to disguise bathrooms odors. Julian Rouas Paris' s synthetic fragrances are (dangerous) garbage; they should be banned! A new study has shown their high level of toxic chemicals to exceed the EPA' s safety standard guideline: Benzyl acetate, Phthalates, Benzaldehyde, Methylene Chloride (carcinogenic banned by the FDA in 1988! No enforcement possible due to trade secret laws protecting unscrupulous companies like Julian Rouas Paris). These known toxics are capable of causing cancer, central nervous system disorders, birth defects, lung and liver toxicity, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's Disease. Predictably, Julian Rouas Paris was thrown out of several department stores due to health hazards arising from its toxic perfumes. It is interesting to note that on his website and online advertising, self-proclaimed Perfume Designer Julian Rouas, touts his perfumes as being ""all natural"" with no water, nor alcohol; no additives, nor chemicals. The lying, deceipt, obscene lack of accountability of Julian Rouas is shocking and unsettling! Julian Rouas is an uneducated Bedouin from North Africa who considers himself above the law and sees the American people as gullible preys. Stay away from his shady company!! \r
Cons: Worst Perfumes!
While the atmosphere in the restaurant was nice and the service was very good the food was only ordinary. I ordered the bone in rib eye steak and while it was cooked perfectly it had no seasoning and was kind of tough. Like the first post says, it is as expensive as any fine steakhouse but I think the steaks at Sizzler are even better.\r
My wife ordered the seared Ahi tuna which also had no flavor and was stone cold. We are used to the sear being done immediately before delivery to the table and this was obviously done ahead and kept cold for service.
Pros: Service and atmosphere
Cons: Food flavor and quality
My husband and I had dinner here tonight. Let's start off by saying the positives the hostess was very nice and the Cesar Salad we split was decent.\r
Now for the not so good stuff. The prices here are simliar to what you would pay at Ruth Chris's or Flemings. Designed the same way you order your steak and then any extra side dishes you want are extra. But the food quality is far from the above mentioned steakhouses. JW's food was mediocre at best, one would think we were eating at a Sizzlers but paying about four times as much.\r
The decor was very hotel furnishings ... just kinda blah all around. Even if you are staying at this hotel, I say spend a few bucks take a cab to a REAL steakhouse and really enjoy your dinner. Our waiter sucked! We finished eating and had to wait over 15 minutes until he came to clear our table. He never came once to refill my husbands ice tea glass. I felt bad for him becasue his section was busy so he was running around and it didn't seem like they had any busboys to help clear away plates ect ...\r
Our bill came to over $90 and that included no booze at all, no appetizer and no dessert. And in the end it just wasn't that pleasant of a dining experience. We wanted our bill so we could leave pronto!\r
We will never return here, so many choices to eat in LA ... this one is definitely something everyone can pass on.
Pros: Hostess was nice, cesar salad was OK
Cons: Everything else!
