While the neighboring façades are French-inspired, the Sirtaj offers a minimalist display of polished concrete. An Indian gentleman, the hotel’s namesake, seems to gaze down in greeting from a modernist painting in the lobby among intricate Indian tapestries. Behind the bar, a sari-like riot of tangerine and turquoise paisleys offsets the shiny browns of the walls, floors and furniture.
Bed & Bath
Guestrooms are simple and modern, with chocolate-brown furniture and a deep grain in the floorboards, drawing the eye to a wall of solid brick-red. A glass wall separating the bedroom from the bathroom is painted like gauzy cotton in a sumptuous red, saffron and lime-green pattern. Inside you’ll find dual-head showers and White of London’s Noir products (blessedly low on scent, with just a hint of amber, mandarin and orchid). Luxe techie touches include high-def LED TVs, remote-controlled heating and cooling, free WiFi and Lavazza espresso machines.
Across from the front desk is the bar, which offers concoctions that sound as if they shouldn’t work but do — think spiked Thai curry, with coconut milk, chilies and rum. In the P.S. restaurant, the skilled Wes Lieberher turns out creative comfort food such as fried shallot petals, agnolotti pasta made with beet juice and filled with duck confit, and french fries tossed in bacon fat and served with maple vinaigrette. There’s no pool or fitness center, but guests get passes to the chichi Equinox sports club nearby.
How to Get There
My wife and I stayed here because it was close to where she was having surgery. The night after surgery I oredered room service since my wife could not get out. The front desk came to the room to inform us that room service was not available as the kitchen was closed for remodel. Did not not know this prior to our visit. Also due to my wifes surgey she had spilled a little blood on the sheet and pillow case. When I got home I found two additional seperate charges of $26.00 and $25.00. When I called they said it was for the sheet and pillow case. I will never stay here again and would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
The location is perfect, many restaurants and coffee places just a few steps away, rodeo drive 5min walking. The rooms are always super clean, the water pressure in the shower is perfect, the people at the reception are very helpful and genuinely friendly. The price is not super high like the other hotels around. Seriously I can't find a single thing that is not good enough at this hotel. Maybe the fact that the walls are paper thin so you can hear everything around but this happens to all the hotels I’ve stayed in Los Angeles so I guess it's a general thing. I would defined recommend it.
We picked this hotel for the proximity of a party we were going to and it worked out great!
This is an “A” location!!! Walk to Spago and other great dining choices and shopping spots. I mean like a 2 minute walk.
Easy check in and valet with very nice staff and a complimentary juice at check in. Delish.
Slow elevator so we took the cardio route and stairs! Easy. Nice big room and quiet.
Good looking bar and small restaurant off the lobby.
I’d highly recommend this hotel for staff and location.
