Hidden on seven leafy acres in Bel Air, the Luxe feels like a tranquil country retreat. Earth tones and neutral colors dominate the interior design by Mary McDonald and make for a calm and relaxing setting. The beige-on-beige scheme can seem a little vanilla, but it’s a welcome reprieve from L.A. properties that try too hard to be colorfully hip.
Bed and Bath
The 161 guestrooms come with feather duvets, stacks of decorative pillows, flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations. The feel is modern and serene, with white lacquer parsons desks, wicker benches and oversize seashell images. About a third of the rooms have balconies — be sure to request one when booking. Marble bathrooms in standard rooms have tub-shower combos and plush towels.
Ideal for active Angelenos and visitors, the Luxe offers an outdoor heated pool, a tennis court and a fitness center. Afterward reward yourself with seasonal Cali cuisine at On Sunset or blood orange martinis and truffle fries at the Luxe Lounge. Or book a treatment at the Asian-themed spa. The hotel provides a 24-hour shuttle between the property’s various levels.
How to Get There
Noticed very friendly service, will not hesitate to recommend anyone for business or pleasure. Location is little bit quite and away from restaurants but hotel restaurant is a good quality one therefore no worries.
I had a spectacular stay at the hotel. The room was spacious with high quality amenities. One can order services through their in-room tablet which was super convenient. Shuttle service to nearby restaurants, shops, and Getty museum was a very nice perk. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Mario, Maria and Danny were very welcoming, courteous and never missed a bit. They offered excellent customer service every time we interacted with them! Truly nice people~warm, friendly and personable! My husband and I appreciated their smiles and the above and beyond service they provided! They outshined all the other staff we encountered. This team is truly an asset to the Luxe Hotel!
The hotel is decent and in a good area. It’s very close to several must-go places in LA. But the front desk is very slow and the staff are not very good in explaining directions.I was told that one building has a pool and the other building has restaurants but not where is my room. I had to ask the valet staff where should I go since there was only 1 person working at the front and 3 familys, 15+ people were waiting ( gathering ) at the front desk. One weird thing about this hotel was that there were so many mosquitoes. I have lived in LA for 10 years and here has the worst mosquitoes.
This hotel markets itself on the Luxury side of accommodation in L.A. but in reality, the delivery does not follow.
The room was average, dark and actually noisy based on the ground floor near the parking/lobby of the hotel.
For a hotel who takes pride to have a French Chef in the kitchen, we felt that it was definitely not up to scratch. Lack of services in the restaurant was astoundingly poor. dinners were left unattended and on their own for a long period of time. The quality of the meal varies greatly from one day to the next, with food being undercook. I am sure the "French Chef" was on holidays as any self-respected chef would not tolerate this nonsense. One could tell that some dishes were prepared in advance and kept in the refrigerator to be dished out. The menu was limited and expensive.
Also, LUXE if we put the "DO NOT DISTURB" sign on our door it is for a reason!!! We certainly don't expect to receive phone calls!!! to see if we want our room service!! DUH.....
When we ask about transportation to and from the hotel, we were given some outrageously expensive quotes that only an insane person would have accepted. I believe they were trying to take advantage of our situation.
The only redeeming feature was that the women working at the reception were the most customer orientated and obliging.
The kids enjoyed the heated swimming pool.
All in all, Avoid like the plague if you don't want to be fleeced. Not recommended at all.
I won't be back that's for sure.
