We went and had a drink with some mates who were staying there. We were given the 3rd degree on the way in - which almost put me right off because I got a bit of a bee in my bonnet that it was poncey and I wasn't sure I wanted to go.. but in fact it was worth it.... More

This place really didn't live up to the hype. Not a lot of privacy as this place is where you go "to be seen" While the room service staff, wait staff, and even bellhop staff are nice- the check in staff and valet staff tend to be offputting. They like to challenge their guests, which is not customer service oriented.... More

Loved this place for sunset drinks on the outdoor terrace. The wine list was good and considering where are are the prices weren't too insane! Will definitely be back.

Well...everybody likes a little bit of star spotting and at The chateau that is what you will get. Beautiful gardens where you neat by candlelight and steeped in Hollywood Mythology. Of course there is a downside. I like luxury but The Chateau aims for eccentricity. Shabby Chic rooms...old plumbing and you do pay top dollar for this experience.

I had higher expectations from all,of the hype. It is a cool hotel, very old but still well done. I had a light lunch of a shrimp cocktail and a chicken sandwich. Both were good to eat. Overall a cool experience to be there

Have spent a few nights here over the years. No, it's not the Ritz, but I could care less. Contrary to some, I have always found the staff to be courteous, helpful, and friendly. Room was clean, and nicely decorated. Good firm mattress, a must at this point in life.Of course it's expensive Both The Restaurant, and the Bar Marmont... More

Always my favorite place to stay when visiting. I said it last year and I will say it again this year after yet another great stay... Travis is a huge asset to this place. He is by far the friendliest, most helpful person. The food at the restaurant is always delicious. However, the dining staff is hit or miss. It... More

Like many hotels and motels in California, there's a lot of history about celebrities and ghost stories. Many movie stars and rock stars have stayed here. There are bugalows in the back, where John Belushi died. The menu is expensive, even if it's just a quick bite. One of many interesting hotel's to check out or in.
