The Sofitel is the epitome of stylish young Tinseltown. The chain’s French roots show up in elegant and abstract floral arrangements and an antique-style mural of the city, while the sexy, dark palette, the dramatic, sculptural staircase and the oversize contemporary art root it firmly in LA. The cozy postmodern décor flows through the lobby and outside onto a terrace lined with firepits and a waterfall wall. Upstairs, blond wood walls, floor-to-ceiling windows, and pillowtop beds draped in soft striped throws create a soothing, spa-like feel in the 295 rooms. Glass-walled bathrooms have rainfall showers with benches and Lanvin bath products. Expect techy perks such as HDTVs and Bose Wave radios with iPod docks. Come nightfall, you don’t have to go outside for stargazing. Estérel is often dotted with sophisticated celebs, while the swank Riviera 31 has a sexy, cozy atmosphere. And if you overindulge, LeSpa at Sofitel will help you heal with a full menu of treatments, a fitness center, sauna and heated outdoor pool.
In the Area
On a corner at one of LA’s busiest intersections, where Beverly Hills meets West Hollywood and opposite the Beverly Center, you’re well situated for exploring LA. Stroll the trendy shops of Robertson Boulevard, a few blocks from the hotel. Go native with a spicy peanut kale or crispy seitan katsu at macrobiotic vegan café M Café de Chaya, or join the showbiz types indulging in rich Tuscan fare at Ago, which is co-owned by Robert De Niro. If you need a break from the seen-and-be-seen vibe of the Riviera 31, walk a block to the speakeasy-style Roger Room. Or rise above the scene altogether with a visit to the Getty Center, Richard Meier’s sprawling travertine museum perched on a mountaintop above Santa Monica.
How to Get There
The Sofitel management and team are some of the nicest and most accommodating hotel industry people you'll ever encounter. All of our requests were expeditiously met with a smile- from the doormen to the front desk to the cleaning staff. The one bedroom suite was spacious and provided an amazing view of the hills. The beds are extremely comfortable and encourage a good nights sleep. The location of the hotel is within walking distance of some of the best shopping and dining in LA.
This very centrally located hotel is the perfect place to stay while visiting Los Angeles. Our room was very comfortable. It faced the street so we had a view of the shopping mall. Ask for a view of the mountain to avoid this.
We had the buffet breakfast which was outstanding. The cafe lattes were superb. The food delicious and the service congenial. I highly recommend it.
We used their business center which was well equipment and the personnel very helpful.
At the next available opportunity we would return to this hotel.
I am not one to usually leave a review, however after our stay at the Sofitel Los Angeles I feel like I must.
The hotel itself is nice, great location & just a really nice place to stay! There is one thing that stands out and makes a big difference to me when staying in a hotel......That is the staff and the way they welcome you each and every time you walk in.
There is a gentleman by the name of Zervando who is one of the Consierge, absolutely outstanding service and seriously helpful. His local knowledge of Restaurants, Shopping & Things to do are exceptional.
Thank you Zervando for all your efforts throughout our stay and we very much look forward to staying at Sofitel on our next trip to LA. @Sofitel Your Concierge Zervando is an asset to your brand!
My wife and I have stayed at the Beverly Hills Sofitel many times for work in the past and we just recently revisited.
This place is hands down one of our favorite hotels in LA due to its comfort, service and location.
The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and I personally always enjoy to showers with the windows looking out into the room so I can watch the news in the morning. The beds are extremely comfortable and are sometimes what you remember the most especially when you are on work trips.
Advice for any first timers is to try and request a room on the higher floors. This place is a happening spot and does tend to have a lively atmosphere and evenings so the noise levels may be too much for some on the lower floors who need some early shut eye.
Also, Los Angeles isn’t know for its walkability but this area is great as you can walk across the street for shopping or just down the block for good food and coffee.
Sofitel Los Angeles is a great find for anyone seeking quality comfort and service.
great location in West Hollywood. Across the street from a very nice mall. the room was very nice, comfortable beds and a lot of amenities. the outside patio was nice for evening drinks and light food. only suggestion is to have more choices on the dinner menu.
