This boutique hotel is on the medium small size and modest in design. They have a small workout facility, a really cozy lobby area adorned with dark wood touches and a little courtyard type area with a patio tables and a pond. The rooms are small, very clean, quiet, and dimly lit. The beds are so comfortable. I lyed down on my back and the next thing I knew it was the morning and I was still I the same position.

They have free parking and a complimentary shuttle that will take you place to place within a certain area, which is good if you don't have a vehicle as it's pretty close to the promenade. The only down thing to this is it took the shuttle guy forever to pick me up... a bit of a disappointment.

Anyhow, every morning, breakfast consisted of fresh squeezed juice, coffee, delicious pastries, toast and fabulous fresh mixed berry salads... so pampering and healthy!

The Ambrose is a very avant-garde boutique hotel in the city of Santa Monica. The room was very nice and would definitely recommend. Complimentary breakfast consists of fruit salads, pastries, cereal, and beverages. Venice Beach is close by.

booked my out-of-town parents here and they loved it. Rates are incredible and they even have breakfast. My dad was very impressed with how affordable it was yet still very nice, and he stays at 5 star hotels all the time. front desk staff were also very friendly.

To be honest I have never stayed over night at the Ambrose, but as a favorite spot for an out of town friend, I have visited the Ambrose many times. The rooms are very comfortable with some views reaching the ocean. They do not have a restaurant, and this does not stop the Food and Beverage Manager, Anne, from creating a delicious and delightful experience for you early in the morning. The car service is wonderful as well as the staff.

Our room was on the third floor on the left hand side of the hotel. The hotel is decorated in a feng shui type of style and I noticed this hotel was a more masculine style if anything else. Dark teakwood furniture and cream linens dominate the slightly cramped room. A mini bar was stocked with food and drink, but the prices were too outrageous to want to touch anything. The room didn?t provide much other than a alarm clock, towels and Aveda bath products (YUM!)

The hotel offers free parking as we later found out and down weird twisting driveway, there is ample parking beneath the hotel. The parking spots are quite tight so we stuck to the spots on the lower level, which had slightly bigger spaces. The Ambrose also has a free continental breakfast and I think it?s one of the best I have ever experienced. The hotel provides a variety of pastries and breakfast breads along with yogurt, fruit, orange juice, tea and Starbucks coffee. Served in the common room, there aren?t many tables and seating options so we either arrived when it opened or right before it closed to get a decent seat.

Another perk of this hotel is the shuttle service which is free but not 24 hour service. The car is an old school English taxi cab, but they quit shuttling guests at 11:00pm.

PROS: good location, good breakfast buffet
CONS: not enough parking, rooms walls are too thin

This place is a little gem. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful (Leah, Sheena, and Max). The courtesy car (when available) is a nice perk. The rooms were beautiful, the place itself tranquil yet hip minus the attitude. The bed was soooo comfy...we had the best nights sleep, and the breakfast is both generous and a foodie's delight.
We would stay again in a hearbeat.
