Charming Hotel
My daughter and I went for a quick LA overnight. We were so pleased with this cute little hotel. The staff was personable, the room was clean (although we wished they had coffee in the room), the adorable courtyard was beautiful to sit in and enjoy a wine! The location was perfect for what we wanted to do, walking distance to where we wanted to go. I would highly recommend Short Stories.

Lovely hotel across the street from the Grove and Farmers Market. Gorgeous courtyard with beautiful trees to shade it. Wonderful service all around—all of employees were all just the nicest! We enjoyed happy hour on the patio. They brought our small dog a bed to rest on and fresh water. Lots of little touches like that. Definitely will be back!

Perfect spot for a solo trip!
Short Stories is an absolute gem! From the minute you walk in it feels calm and welcoming. The staff (Jazmin at check in) were kind and helpful and the welcome drink was a nice surprise. The decor throughout the hotel and in the rooms was well thought out. It felt high end without being pretentious. It was the perfect place to unwind for a couple of days after a bustling weekend at Universal. I’ll definitely be back!
