Historical Traveler Reviews Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham Los Angeles Manhattan Beach
This is one of the cleanest hotels I have stayed in and I am a nut when it comes to clean. We stayed in the king suite which had one bedroom with a king bed and a small living room with a sleeper sofa. When you walk into the room there is a chair, sofa, tv, and kitchen. The kitchen and living room are divided by a waist high bar with an office type chair which was perfect for our laptop. There is a tv in the living room and a tv in the bedroom which was nice because the kids watched what they wanted and we relaxed and watched what we wanted. The hotel is on a busy main street and is close to restaurants and shops - the pier is about a mile from the hotel. Driving is necessary unless you are used to walking a lot. The courtyard was beautiful, the breakfast was excellent and the grounds were very clean with plenty of underground parking. Service was excellent with courteous, smiling staff.
Nice rooms, very comfortable bed, lots of amenities
My only complaint about the hotel is that I was under the impression that it was a taller building, for I wanted an ocean view. Other than that, as far as the room itself and the staff and lobby, you can't do better for the price. The room was nice and spacious and can't go wrong having a refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, in-hotel coin laundry, and high speed internet. I give it a solid A.
Stayed two nights while in town on business. Wanted to stay near the airport but wanted to be close to beach too. The motel is just as it is described by others on Trip Advisor -- priced right, charming courtyard, clean, large size rooms, very pleasant staff, and good breakfast. They have wine and cheese in the evenings too!They also have a guest washer/dryer on the lobby floor. Decent shopping and restaurants just steps away from hotel (across street). The steak restaurant beside the hotel (on the same side of the street, going up the hill) is of excellent quality and a great choice if you're in a hurry (I can't remember the name). There is a metro stop just a few feet from the hotel and metro maps can be retrived from the motels guest computer and printer. Use the Transtar website if you want to use the metro and would like step by step directions. It's one of the best metro websites I've seen yet. If you bring your own laptop, the motel subscribes to PrintMe, a service that gives you the ability to print emails, attachments, or other internet documents using a code/password system. By the way, this place is one and one half mile walk (safe) to the beach where there are miles of pedestrian trails and bikes to rent too. You pass juice and coffee shops along the way, including a Starbucks.
Great Suites hotel near LAX and the beach
Stayed one night after a long flight from the UK to LAX, not too far down the PCH from the airport and fairly easy to find. Easy underground parking and friendly staff. Nice room with good fixtures, clean and safe. Interior courtyard which is nice, good quality breakfast served. Not too far to drive to Manhattan Beach pier. Good place to stay, especially for LAX. Would use again.
Great suite hotel in LA
We stayed in one of the suites for 4 nights with 2 daughters. Clean, spacious suite with full kitchen. Excellent price. Parking garage in the building; only a few minutes away from Manhatten Beach, LAX airport, and highway.
Great place to stay!
this is a darling hotel! We chose it as an alternative to staying at an airport hotel after a late arrival to LAX. After traveling all day, it was a delight to arrive at the Hawthorn Suites! It's exterior is a warm yellow stucco, with a courtyard that the rooms look out on, filled with ferns and other potted plants. There are cafe-style tables in the courtyard that are great for breakfast and the paper, or an evening drink. A generous breakfast buffet is included in the rate, and included waffles, eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal, coffee, juices, and fruite. The hotel was very quiet during my stays (two consecutive mondays that I flew into and out of LAX), and the staff were friendly and helpful. The first night I stayed in the one bedroom suite. It had very comfortable, attractive furniture, a small but complete kitchen (full sized fridge), roomy bathroom, and a separate, generous bedroom with a wonderful pillowtop mattress and a second television. I had my toddler son with me, and he had plenty of room to explore and play (I've found suites are great when you have small children who need room to explore). The second night I stayed, I had the studio type suite, which was all one room, but still containing a small kitchen and sitting area. Also very comfortable (this room actually had a very generous tub in it's bathroom). My only criticism was that the hotel did not have a crib available, however, my reservation that night was very short notice. I will definitely plan on staying here again if my travels take me to the LA area.
My girlfriends and I went to California from July 7- 10, 2004. We stayed at this hotel and loved it. The breakfast is great, especially the waffles. The room was nice with a ceiling fan in the living room, separate air conditioners for the bedroom and living room, and separate TVs in both rooms. The bed was so comfortable (we had 3 girls on that king sized bed). The 2 girls on the pull-out couch said they were surprised at how well they slept on it. Usually pull-outs have that bar that jabs you in the back. This one was great.
It's a nice little place and we got a great rate on their web-site for $79 per night. The bed was really comfortable and the room was very clean. Looking at the photos on the site, the TV looked like it was in an odd place. But it actually slides out and swivels on top of the dresser for easy viewing from either side of the room. The breakfast was good - hot and cold items to choose from. There was a problem with the alarm clocks - Our clock went off the first night at 3am. The next night you could hear the clock going off in the room next door...forever. I guess previous guests thought it would be funny to set the alarms at odd times. Also, there was a family staying at the hotel and they all had about 15 kids put together all under the age of 12. They never seemed to leave the hotel (except the husbands) and the kids were always running around, making noise and it made for a cramped breakfast and they were always on the computer. It's rude to the other guests to leave kids running around all day. It felt like a daycare.
The rooms are large but laid out kind of odd. Poor use of space. We had 2 children ages 10 and 12. When we stay at a suites hotel the kids can usually share the convertable sofa, but the convertable sofa was so small and narrow we had to ask for a rollaway bed.
Fantastic suite hotel
New hotel that is well priced. The best bed I have slept on in years.
