The staff at the Merigot was very kind and generous to us when we were forced to evacuate during the Getty fire. The front desk team of Natasha and Jessica made sure our room was ready once we arrived and arranged a pet amenity for our large dog. The room was very spacious and had a nice view of the courtyard. The concierge, Shayna, was very friendly and always greeted us with a smile.
We enjoyed dining on the outside patio, where it is dog friendly, with a large screen TV, easily accessed by all the tables and lounges. The patio is cozy and relaxing - something we needed after a very stressful day! Thank you to the team at the Merigot for truly making us feel at home when we couldn't be at our home!
Am at the Le Merigot for the American Film Market. Just wanted to give a shout-out to the doorman, Tano. Terrific guy, superb service. Very proactive in engaging the customers. He's a keeper, to say the least. Keep it up, Tano; you're the best
