  • Very disappointing although it is a time of covid. Just difficult to justify the price…

    Fantastic Rooms ok dining experience

    I would have loved to give full 5 stars, but the dining experience was not up to NOBU standards at all. I have dined at Nobu Las Vegas, Malibu and LA, and this was not up to the Nobu standard. dirty plates left on table, lack luster service. The hotel itself is beautiful. Located in a safe and nice area w plenty of places to eat nearby. The rooms meet the Nobu standard, just wish dinner were the same

  • 6.0.Good

    This is a beautiful boutique hotel however the staffing did not live up to the Nobu name. They charge $45/day for Valet however they rarely had a valet attendant outside so you are forced to park and go inside to find someone to help. The room was small as expected but very comfortable and minimally plush. However due to the location, I was awoken every morning at 5am by street sweepers and garbage trucks.

    Not a 4 star hotel

    Refurbished hotel that is now a Nobu. Elevator does not work so you need to enter via smelly service entrance and take service elevator. Plates left outside of room me for over a day. Not impressed

  • 2.0.Poor

    Front desk was not very accommodating. Tv and speaker did not work properly, when asked the technician was not eager to help and I asked to speak to the manager and never pass the message along. Wasn’t told that there were construction right outside of my room. Such a disappointing experience. Wouldn’t recommend. Amateur hours
