First of all - the name "Sky Hotel" is a misnomer, as my room did not have a window to the outside, and therefore no view of anything vaguely sky-like.
Second: not clean - hand print on walls, urine stain on bathroom floor. (At least I hope it was urine. Shudder to think of other possibilities)
Third: No window to the outside, just a window to an indoor atrium. This means you either have privacy but stay in a closet, or have some natural light/fresh air, and share your experience with everyone walking in and out of the hotel.
Four: They are about making money at the expense of treating customers well. Because there was no room with a window to the outside for me to move into (because I suspect they don't have any!), I moved out after only 2 days, but had pre-paid for 5. After multiple phone calls, I was refused even a PARTIAL refund for the other 3 nights.
This place is in fact a converted motel. And yes, the furniture is new and nice, but a hotel room without a window you can use is actually a glorified closet. Given the complete absence of customer service and the uncomfortable room, I would not recommend it to my worst enemy. There are many charming and comfortable 3.5 star hotels that did not start life as a motel in the nearby area, do your research, stay in one of them instead.
- Also Known As:
- Sky Hotel Los Angeles
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located right on Westwood Blvd, you will be only footsteps away from shopping, dining, entertainment and Los Angeles` premier attractions. At LA Sky Boutique Hotel you are sure to enjoy a contemporary, serene atmosphere surrounded by the excitement of Hollywood, Beverly Hills and the Beach Cities. When you enter the lobby, the charm of this boutique property will unveil itself. The intimate, chic, living room-like lobby surrounds a small bar where guests can enjoy a nice bottle of California wine or creamy specialty coffees and cookies. The ``why`` behind the name L.A. Sky Hotel becomes obvious as you walk through a door into the indoor courtyard, once open to the ``LA Sky`` and now covered with a beautiful canopy that shades the interior. It`s an indoor-outdoor courtyard that is perfect for an afternoon drink or a lazy e-mail session. The common areas of the L.A. Sky encompass everything that a person could want in a Boutique Hotel: cozy, comfortable, charming, clean and tasteful.One beautifully rare occurrence in the City of Angels is not having to drive a car to get where you want to go. If it`s trendy L.A. eats or a new pair of tight jeans you are looking for you won`t have to re-park the car, just walk out the front door. There are a melange of restaurants on the block and more shopping than any man can take at the Westwood Pavilion Shopping Center. The famed Wilshire and Sunset Boulevards are nearby and even the Beach Cities like Santa Monica and Venice are within 5 miles. ... more less
