Unexpectedly Unfussy
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Lovely. Really. It is positioned on an unassuming residential side street and felt very comfortable. It’s not a sky scrapper building, or the paps stalking trend setter that you’d expect from a property so often visited by Hollywood A-Listers. In fact durning my stay for a week there was always “someone” by the pool, at the bar or have bite at the restaurant and it almost always went without fanfare.
The valet was quick...as a residential block they have it down to keep things moving at the end of the cul-de-sac where the entrance is located.
Lobby was unfussy and small. Check in staff attentive, informative and quick.
Rooms are broken into to areas...I was in the same building as Check which I really appreciated since I was doing lots of in/out. Along with the split there are always two pools. One just off the lobby in the main building and a second among what I believe were villas rooms.
Hallways were a little dark but not crazy. Aromatherapy filled he halls with a pleasant clean floral scent. My room was on the second floor with two large rooms and patio. The trees out front kept it private since the 2nd floor would otherwise catch arrivals noise. Front room had a dining table, and sectional couch. Very comfy btw the way...it was perfect early mornings watching Soccer with friends without having to sit on the edge of the bed! There was a fridge and mini bar which was great for chilling waters etc.
Bedroom is totally cozy. There was a dresser and ample closet space. Black out shades and a great size tv. (TVs in both rooms)
Bathroom had double sinks which was great but I would have opted for more counter space. Shower pressure was meh, but not awful.
Molten Brown products were a welcome surprise. I expected signature products which I never like.
Had breakfast at the garden restaurant which was one of the most relaxing places I’d ever been in LA. Highly recommend!
I believe there is an onsite spa, but I didn’t have the pleasure of visiting.
I all I expected a fussy stay at a Hollywood hot spot but was very pleasantly surprised and will 100% be back!

Chilled out and cool stay
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Stayed here with my wife and 2.5 year old in August 2016, we'd been travelling for 2 months, so this was our final 5 days stay before our flight back to Australia. I reviewed just about every hotel in West Hollywood, and so glad we chose this one. While other hotels might have a little more glitz and glamour, this one had everything that we needed, and more. We spent most days by the pool, had a room at the rear of the main pool area, access to private lounge via sliding doors from room, made it so much more enjoyable. I believe we were upgraded to this room, highly recommend. My daughters was given a kids pack, with rock star drink bottle, and a baby suit, too small for her, however thoughtful, the maids also washed her favorite dog doll, little things like this make the stay special. The vibe of the hotel is rock star-ish, with pool area being traditional LA, many locals seem to come in for a drink, bands playing on the hotel grounds, and great location to walk down to Melrose Avenue for shopping or cafe's should this be what you like. Oh yes, the hotel provides passes to the gym next door, this was sensational, since this gym is 5 star, and even had a babysitting club for our daughter while my wife and I worked out. I'd stay here again so obviously recommend to everyone, especially those with families.

Living the dream

It’s where you stay when you need to slip in and out of town, low profile, avoid the fans and put down a few collaborative tracks for your next release and plan the tour - either really or in your imagination. Beautiful restaurant and spacious comfortable room.

Lovely Oasis in West Hollywood
Reviewed 1 month ago

We stayed a couple of nights in this iconic hotel associated with the music industry.? It has a lovely vibe and very helpful staff. Although it is just off the Strip, you would hardly know it is there with all its greenery and plants. A friend joined us for a lovely dinner one evening. The halibut was really tasty! Our suite of bedroom, bathroom and separate lounge was very relaxing and comfortable after a long flight. The only downside was that they charge for the internet. When are all hotels going to realise that consumers see this as a normal free service these days! Still, it was a very nice stay. Thanks

Nice but Overpriced and Arrogant
Reviewed 2 months ago

This would be a 4 or 5 star review if this hotel didn't charge $700-800/night and up for their rooms. First the good. Its a lovely oasis of verdant tranquility with their gardens just off the sunset strip. The beds are comfortable and rooms spacious- albeit outdated.

The bad. If you're here for business, good luck. Not only do they charge $12 for internet each day but the internet is horrible. Could barely get work done. Second, the room designs are funky. Closing and opening the bathroom door is nearly impossible with where they've placed the hangars for robes. Third, I get this is Hollywood but the over inflated sense of importance this place exudes is gross. We called trying to find out information about a reservation our company made and were given a lecture about how many celebrities stay there before helping us out.

Try the Sunset Tower up the street. Much better and cheaper.
