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
Stayed in this hotel for one night last January. Arrived late at night and the front desk guy took ages to do my check-in. The room has a good size but ceilings are low. In the middle of the night someone opened the door of my room. I was petrified, didn't call the cops because I was leaving LA that morning. Couldn't come back to sleep after the horrible experience. I gave another hour, decide to pack and went to the airport, thought was a safer place to stay. When I landed in NY someone from the hotel called me to apologize and said that would give free rates, what I didn't accept as I won't few safe there.
My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Room was spacious clean and despite other reviews quiet.
We were in the main building without the pool.
We had room service twice and it was delicious and remarkably prompt. Breakfast in the dining room was excellent, I recommend the eggs Benedict! Location for touring Beverly Hills and the beaches was ideal ( tour guides words)
However as nice as our stay was, it was the after stay service that I was truly impressed by.
4 days later we were in our next hotel in San Diego and realized we had left our passports in the safe at the luxe! Leslie to the rescue!
I called the front desk and Leslie not only tracked down our passports but also arranged a driver to deliver them to us in San Diego! We got our documents and cash untouched. Allowing us to continue our holiday the next day. Such honesty and dedication was truly appreciated. Wonderful staff and service.
I chose this boutique hotel because of it’s location to the things my family wanted to see and do in LA. It is a smalll motel on a busy road near the highway. We did not hear any traffic noise. It’s a great location on the border of Bel aAir and Brentwood. We loved the family room. It was large and easily accessible. Valet parking is required which is bit ridiculous since the lot was literally outside our door. It added to the price as did the tip we gave every time we came and left. We did not use any of the facilities. Employees were very friendly and attentive. This was a great place for what we wanted to but by no means is it a resort type hotel. I thought the picture made it look fancier than it actually is. If I was looking for a resort stay I would have been a bit disappointed.
