I've loved this place for years. I only have lunch or breakfast. It's always superb. You feel like you're in the luscious Hollywood days of yesteryear. It's relaxing, elegant and beautiful. Everything tastes divine. I rarely have dinner there. I find that menu very limited. Treat yourself to a gracious, lush experience and make am outdoor reservation at the Chateau.... More

If you are checking out the old Hollywood sights, or just nearby for dinner, you kinda gotta stop in to the Chateau Marmont. A fairly small bar space with old school glamour, great cocktails and a DJ every time I've been there, usually during the week. It can definitely get loud and the hipster quotient is off the charts. But... More

Have not stayed overnight at this stage. However hae visited a few times for a morning tea with friends. Could not rate this place higher. Staff are very helpful and the food is top class. Great surroundings and a pleasant quiet environment.. This is a higher priced and class of eating but well worth it... Nice for a special treat... More

I love that this trendy spot doesn't act pretentious. I love the location, and I love that the people who work there were some of the nicest we met in LA. This really is a super fun place and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

The hotel architecture is stunning. We had drinks in the garden, which was beautiful. We got lucky and got a table, but would highly recommend reservations. This definitely seems like the place to be seen and we saw celebrities while there, which was a lot of fun. Our waiter was fantastic, we though maybe they would be haughty but that... More

The famous and infamous Chateau Marmont lives up to all the hype with its divine garden lit and heated at night by fires with attentive waiters and lovely food and drinks. The bohemian hotel has not been overdecorated and retains its crazy charm. Valet parking is the cost of a college education and nearby parking impossible but ... who cares?... More

My fiance and I went here for a drink - mostly for the scene. We sat outside in the patio. The vibe borders on foreign/touristy attraction and a place to be seen in LA. The hotel itself is beautiful as is the outside area. It was really crowded and had a great atmosphere on a weeknight during the holiday season.... More

This Hotel is a L.A. Landmark, the site of so many notorious stories, the intersection of so many careers in showbusiness... Has to be one of the most ''Hollywood'' experiences ever... You've got to stay there at least once in your life. It's also a really good Hotel in a very strategic location, with one of the most interesting bars... More

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
