This has been by far the most outstanding world class property for decades. Nestled in the posh Bel Air residential area, if you are a newcomer to LA, this is the most upscale area to live without being pretentious and low bling factor. Locals tend to call this their second home. It used to be the most romantic place to... More

Without exaggeration, a stunning hotel experience. The staff is world class. The grounds are amazing. And the rooms are truly lovely. The Hotel Bel Air is just breathtaking. FYI: The only negative? The complex digital command pad which controls in-room temp/lights, etc.

Spent 3 nights here and I have to say it was an exceptional experience. Possibly the best Hotel I have had ever had the opportunity to stay at. The room was outstanding, meticulously clean and well appointed. Great linen, toiletries, fitness centre, swimming pool and a top turn down service too. The only fault would be the sound of the...

We stayed here for 3 nights in May and had a most wonderful time. The hotel and grounds were beautiful, the staff were attentive, service and food was what you would expect from a Dorchester Collection Hotel. Top Class. We were upgraded to a Canyon View room which was spectacular. After over 15 hours on a plane our visit to... More

A bit hit and miss to be honest. Staff were friendly although not always that attentive. Room size was fantastic, although something as simple as a coffee takes 15 minutes to arrive with a $15 premium. A coffee machine would make sense considering properties from flea bitten dives to five star palaces the world over are doing it... Breakfast was... More
