This 39-room player’s primo West Hollywood locale puts you in the center of the nightlife action. Alternately, take in the scene from above on the Roofdeck, a 2,000-square-foot loungey hub serving small plates and cocktails, or chill out in your room, which is kitted out with modern must-haves like 46″ flatscreen TVs, espresso machines, fully-stocked minibars and that party-hard staple, electronic blackout curtains. The design? Black and white color schemes punctuated by pops of acid-bright color—think orange, lime green and purple feature walls and cushions—along with bathrooms sporting generous rain showers and bath amenities by Vive. When it’s time to hit the town, the concierge staff are eager to point to local must-sees, which you can visit on one of the hotel’s complimentary bicycles.
In the Area
You’re in Hollywood now, kid, so don’t be afraid to embrace the camera-toting tourist within. Start by promenading the Walk of Fame, where names both legendary and obscure lie beneath your feet, then practice your Oscars speech at the Dolby Theater, the annual stage for the Academy Awards: during less sparkling seasons, visitors can do guided tours or catch various concerts. With obligatory LA celebrity moments behind you, it’s time to dig into that other quintessential Californian ritual, tracking down to-die-for tacos. Start your tortilla crawl at the Hollywood outpost of Loteria Grill, which serves up stellar tacos covering the spectrum from Yucatecan-inspired cochinita pibil (achiote-marinated slow-cooked pork) to vegetarian nopalitos (i.e. cactus and queso fresco). If fish tacos are more your jam, head to Silver Lake for some authentic Ensenada-style examples courtesy of chef Ricky Piña at Ricky’s Fish Tacos, whose crispy, crunchy, creamy tacos have a cult following. Then track down the legendary Kogi BBQ Taco, the Korean-Mexican hybrid that put star chef Roy Choi on the (mobile) map.
How to Get There
When you stay at this hotel, you don't feel like your staying in one of the mega, multi-story hotels. It is a boutique-y, very modern two story place right on Sunset Blvd. My only criticism was the parking at the hotel. It is very cramped and they charge $35 to park. I asked the front desk person, what happens if all of the spaces are occupied and the only answer was to park in one of the handicapped spaces or on the street. If you pay $35 to park, that should guarantee you a parking space.
Hi. This place looked nice online, but once we came in, We honestly couldn’t even stay the night. We were in a room that had toenails, and fluid stains all over it, then when we requested to switch rooms (which was a big ordeal) there was a bunch of red and black hair in the bed (my girlfriend and I are blonde). I have picture evidence of all of this. We requested a refund which was granted but am still waiting for it to transfer through. Could have been a bad day which I give the benefit of the doubt but sadly I had a not so great experience. I’m so sorry, I’m not a person who complains, I’m in the service industry myself, but this was absolutely unacceptable.
We stayed at the Moment hotel for 2 nights in October and quite honestly was shocked in comparison to the photos displayed online. The room was dirty, the previous occupiers hair was everywhere - in the shower, sheets and bathroom!! Just what you want as an extra amenity! The reception staff were friendly and helpful, however I found the cleaning staff to be extremely young and some struggled to raise a smile. With the unclean rooms I think this is something they need to address.
The location is okay - more on the unkept part of West Hollywood, you would be better off staying further down Sunset.
They promote the roof top bar however this only has a few seats - which you guessed where on the dirty side! However the bar staff were friendly.
Overall if you can find a better location in West Hollywood I would avoid The Moment Hotel as our stay dampened the experience of Hollywood.
