This time we were here for a Masters Training program with Alterna Haircare. This is a cool hotel. dark, rich colors set the ambiance as soon as you step foot into the reception area. Fireplace, circular seating, stones, wood floor....
We were met with a warm greeting, room ready, gift bag from Alterna, (a travel sized set of their newest Bamboo line and some Fiji drinking water, weekend itinerary).
Deluxe room: King bed, view of Wilshire. Flat screen tv. Large tub. Love the animal print bath robes & socks !
Pool: yes, small, no jacuzzi. fireplace, sitting area, row of loungers.
Small gym w/ cardio and weights. no nautalus equipment though. Water, towels, and a refrigerator with cool towels. Clean, views of the towers across the street.

We had a DLX : Destination Luxury party to attend over at the Viceroy in Santa Monica the first evening out. See my blog post following.
The following night we attended an Oscar Party hosted by Alterna: Corby & Cash in one of the hotels King Spa Suites on the 16th floor.
Fairwell lunch in BLVD 16, the hotel restaurant. American style dining. I enjoyed a nice tomato basil soup, seared ahi tuna with greens and green tea.
... the room was looking a bit worse from wear, bed skirts need washing, some paint touch ups were in order, there was a piece of what appeared to be a chunk of doggy biscuit left on the floor. I was a bit hesitant on plugging in anything to the bathroom outlet for it was black from a blowout of some sort. Other than those few little things. My stay was wonderful and I would come back again. :)
