Nightmare (I just wanted a peaceful sleep)

I checked in Monday jan 28 I barley got any sleep due to a very loud cricket noise in the room. Around 3:30 am I called the front desk to let them know about the noise they sent maintainece to check out the problem. Unfortunately all they could offer me was ear plugs. Honestly it felt like I was sleeping in a jungle this hotel needs pest control or something. The noise stopped around 6am. Due to not being able to sleep my schedule for the whole day was canceled. Upon check out I spoke to Alec at the front desk and I played him the video I recorded of the noise in the room and explained to him how I wasn’t able to sleep and all he could tell me was to go head and book another room and that it will be a better room. Unconsiderete of the fact that I didn’t sleep at all. All this place care about is money they don’t care for your comfort. This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. I paid a lot of money to sleep with loud crickets . Oh and the way they approach white folks Vs African Americans is whole other topic I won’t get into. I wish there was an option to post video on here I would like to post the video of the noise. After being so frustrated and fighting tears back talking to Alec he was able to offer me some of my money back that still wasn’t good enough.

Beyond Excellence

Malibu, California

A few - make that very few - properties offer something that goes beyond a simple 'hotel experience,' and the Hotel Bel-Air is one such. From the old gardens with waterfall and swans to the tasteful lobby fireplace sitting area to the hotel's relatively new 'up the hill' (my term) section, this is a fascinating property with rooms and locations as diverse as you might like, The staff uniformly operates above & beyond the call of mere duty, providing a level of service that some might say dates back to Gable & Lombard. Save pennies, dollars - and go here. It is, in the best sense,a one of a kind,.
