Beautiful hotel with lots of extras!”
This was my first time planning a trip to the LA area. I chose The Ambrose because it was considerably less expensive than the beachfront hotels- but the location seemed like it would still be good. It greatly exceeded my expectations. They have a car that will take you within a 3 mile radius of the property, and they have bikes that they loan out on a first come basis.--so it was very easy to get to the beach. It never took more than 5 minutes for an Uber, so it was easy to get to Hollywood, Downtown LA and the airport. The continental breakfast was a wonderful spread of fruit, yogurt, cereal and danishes...and this was also free. So many extras that make this an incredible place to stay. On top of all that the hotel staff was very friendly and efficient. I highly recommend!
A must stay”
So pleased with our two night stay. The staff couldn't do enough to help, were very polite and friendly. The hotel it's self was very clean and comfortable. The location is just 3 miles (ish) away from Santa Monica Pier but the car service that is offered covers that, or in our case we used Uber, never had to wait more than a couple of minutes for a driver and it only cost five or six dollars Overall excellent value for money and would definitely stay again.
This place was excellent a real gem!!! We were looking for a last minute no hotel and it was perfect”
They treat everyone with kindness, my family saw the place and told me we didn't belong there, but the front desk treated us excellent and made us feel at home. We even got an upgrade to a double queen with a balcony. They have a shuttle that will take you anywhere within 3 miles and pick you up. They also have a evening reception where they offer snacks and drinks! 🤯 Will definitely stay there again best hotel in Santa Monica
My family and I stayed at the Ambrose Hotel for 4 nights and had a wonderful experience. Rooms were large and clean. Staff were very helpful and polite. Breakfast was great too - loved the coffee! Would certainly stay there again were we to return to Santa Monica.
Overall, it was a very pleasant stay at the Ambrose. The staff is fantastic. Everyone has a positive can-do attitude at all hours of the day. A very simple breakfast of coffee, tea, baked goods and fruit is included. Whole Foods, drug store, dry cleaners, banks, car rentals and a few restaurants are all walking distance away. As for areas of improvement: 1) the WiFi log in shouldn't require the user to complete six fields each time, 2) the front desk should tell guests to reserve the car service 15 minutes ahead and they will try their best to accommodate. Right now, guests are told 10 mins and when the car is late, guests get antsy. No guests will complain if a car came in 5 minutes when their expectations are 15. 3) the bicycles are stylish to look at but uncomfortable to sit on and awkward to peddle. 4) Despite closing the shower door, water leaks out because water running down the door falls onto a flat piece of tile. The shower door enclosure is not designed well. This results in puddles on the bathroom floor and a soppy bath mat. If someone slips from the puddle, that's a lawsuit. 5) Housekeeping enters the rooms too soon after a knock. They literally dipped their card, knocked and turned the knob faster than I could say no. I hoped they enjoyed their view.
Perfect little hotel! ”
Pleasantly surprised. Lovely hotel. Small and staff extremely helpful and friendly. Room very clean. We had complimentary drinks served in the evening and a courtesy shuttle service to Santa Monica Pier, which was a bonus! Absolutely loved our 3 night stay here.
wonderful staff, plentiful breakfast, nice happy hour”
Our stay at the Ambrose was quite nice. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We took advantage of the hotel’s driver who would drop or pick up within a 3 mile radius. The breakfast was delicious and had many options. We were pleasantly surprised to find a nightly happy hour where we met fellow travelers and also enjoyed conversations with the bartenders. It’s a far walk from the beach area but again, you can use the driver service if you want to visit the pier and beach area. Would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone. It’s a great hotel!
The Ambrose was perfect from start to finish. The staff, facilities, beds, rooms were perfect and the breakfasts were the best hotel breakfasts I have ever had. The parking underneath the building was so convenient.
Second Visit and Simply the Best”
Friendly attentive staff, great location and the softest bedding. The Ambrose has many cozy spots to just relax, day or night, inside or out with fireplaces and table heaters. The bakery directly across the street is one of the best in Southern California.
The Ambrose is situated perfectly for either Santa Monica or Hollywood. Staff are welcoming and very helpful. We stayed twice in just over a month and found ourselves looking forward to returning..
Breakfast incredible, Staff were really nice. The location is perfect too close to the Santa Monica downtown 20 minutes by walking.
Great staff and location in the heart of Santa Monica close to everything!
Fabulous value for Money Boutique Hotel”
Great Hotel and loved the happy hour each night. Ensure you get a room away from the 24hr gym. A little distance from the beach but hotel offers a courtesy service when possible which is just great. New Hotel GM is very professional and accommodating.
Nice, but there is no shuttle or breakfast due to COVID-19”
Beautiful place, but I didn’t get the room I reserved, and I was told at check in that there was no breakfast. Those were the two reasons that I booked this hotel. I wish I knew that beforehand. Honestly, I would have canceled. Overall, it was a beautiful stay, and the staff was super friendly minus the things I truly wanted.
Really nice hotel in a super location. Only had two issues. If you book directly with the hotel, which was much more expensive, car parking is free for stays of three nights or more. Parking is charged at €25.00 per night plus tax which is over the top. The car park is big and was half full when we were there. Secondly, the breakfast was nearly gone by 9.00 but closes at 9.30. When we asked for coffee, plates and cutlery, the first answer we got was that it had been busy and was close to closing so they were not bothering to restock the breakfast. We complained and the lady at reception assisted at the second request. If breakfast closes at 9.30, that is not 9.00. It basically meant "We were busy so we are not bothering" which is nonsense, particularly for a 4 star hotel. Relatively minor because they did do something about it and we really liked the hotel. It is beautiful.
A Great Hotel and Enjoyable Stay”
The hotel was recommended to us and met expectations on all elements. The breakfast was v good and a nice touch was being able to have a late casual takeaway lunch in the garden area before travelling to the airport. Staff even made a cup of tea for us even though facilities were closed!! We will recommend it too.
Very good organized Hotel, nice interior, Great pricing, we appreciated the stay, many thx
Very nice hotel in a good location. All the staff was friendly and accommodating especially Arion, she was exceptional: very pleasant, informative, very professional, she is wonderful member of your staff and a true asset to the hotel!
Nice hotel in weho”
Pros - very nice hotel, with cool rooms Parking valet attendant very helpful Cons- lack of breakfast choices - for the price they should offer more than just a continental breakfast
My only problem was with the water pressure in the shower. It was very weak. Unfortunately, this is true with many hotels in LA. I understand that they need to be conscious of water conservancy, but it's annoying.
