Rated 1 out of 5 Worst Hotel in Existence?
I stayed at your Four Points in Westside LA on 9/22. Unfortunately there was an issue with the pipes and after working with the front desk staff and engineers for about an hour I had no choice but to take a cold shower. At checkout I was asked by the GM whether our stay was OK, which is when we shared our issues with him. He offered Starwoods points and a room upgrade next time to make up for it, which at the time was appreciated.
Now objectively I have been very nice to the hotel staff every time we’ve communicated, as I always stive to. It’s not their fault that the pipes broke or that the room didn’t stay the temperature I set it to and they really tried to make it better. Anyways, I told the GM that the staff was great, that I didn’t have the same issues my colleague did with them, but that taking a cold shower sucks. I called back today because I never received a folio and unfortunately the staff failed this time. Here’s what happened:
1. Called the front desk and was put on hold for 7 minutes
2. Called back and when asked if I could hold I said “I was just put on hold for 7 minutes, is there someone I can talk to?”. I was immediately put on hold.
3. Waited on hold for another 5 minutes. The same person eventually picks the call back up and then struggled with them to spell my apparently extremely complicated name. When I asked whether my Starwood account was linked to my stay I was put back on hold for several minutes.
4. A brand new person picks up and tells me my Starwood number after I ask the question again.
I honestly couldn’t tell if they were messing me or if they are really that bad… I haven’t gotten angry in months and right now I am infuriated. I genuinely hate this hotel.
At this point I don’t even know what else to say to them. They can keep their Starwood points and their room upgrade. This hotel deserves every bad thing coming to them. For the sake of their visitors, I hope they get their act together because it’s truly pathetic right now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ja04 This hotel is a great facility
The hotel is close to Westield Mall and that is the draw for me. It has everything you could actually want great foods and quite a diverse of array of shopping within the mall

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ducks152 Great overnight stay
This hotel is very clean and quiet. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom is spacious. If you are a SPG member, there is a 2pm late checkout which is very gracious. Bottled water is also a complimentary amenity. The location is walking distance to the mall and plenty of food options. The hotel is also ideal because it has quick freeway access.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kimsf23 Weekend stay in Culver City
Staff was friendly and responsive. One morning we noticed the smell of cigarette smoke on our floor and the staff promptly investigated since it is a nonsmoking property. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and well maintained for a hotel at that price point. My only complaint was there were no in room safes for the storage of valuables. The hotel is across the street from the Westfield shopping mall which made it convenient to purchase items I forgot to pack.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AZinCA Weird Experience
The hotel serves breakfast, but you can't place a room service order the day or night before; you have to call it in the day of and service starts at 6:30 am. This can be tricky since during my stay when I called either the front desk or room service no one answered initially so I had to call several times.One morning the coffee cups in my room were not replaced from the previous day, so I went down to the lobby to request one at the front desk. The front desk didn't keep any on hand and had to radio the security guard to bring a cup up to my room. A very weird experience overall. Not up to the quality one expects from this SPG family of hotels. Otherwise, very helpful in helping coordinate local travel to and from the hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KiwiKitty Perfect stay for my cat and me!
I stayed here en route to Austin from New Zealand with my cat - very few local hotels accept cats and these guys were really accommodating, charging only $25 pet fee.
The staff was really friendly and helpful, my room service meal was delicious and well priced, and the cab driver who took me to the airport (retired Starwood manager) was fantastic. My room was really clean and the bed was comfy. Great value.
My ONLY complaints are:
1. The a/c was loud and not very effective
2. The pillows were too soft

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gina For the most part it was good...
My main disappointment was that when I booked the hotel through southwest airlines it said that there was no fee for parking and then when I checked in they said that parking would be $12/day per vehicle. The bathroom in the room was a little small and cramped for my taste. The bar staff was very friendly and offered good service. The breakfast bar didn't leave much to choose from for someone on a special diet like myself. Dinner menu was much better than breakfast and the filet was really good. In addition to that I felt that the nightly rate combined with the room tax and parking made this hotel too expensive for what it offered.
