This is my second stay at the Essex and I was happy again. Clean, safe, with all the amenities, kitchen ware, toaster, microwave, fridge, gas. Lots of towels, convenient laundry room. I like the themes each apartment has. Stayed this time with Jimmy Stewart. I highly recommend the Essex. And Don is a friendly helpful manager. Thanks.

I cannot say enough positive things about Essex Manor. I had the pleasure of staying in the Audrey Hepburn room for five months. I was in Los Angeles by myself for work, and didn't want to have to go through the hassle of renting out an apartment that wouldn't provide furniture or any other amenities. Essex Manor is truly a...

Stayed a few days in September and again in December. This is a hidden gem!!! We travel frequently and have been all over the world, so I feel that we can comment with a vast knowledge of superior resorts and some not so nice places. This not a five star resort, with mints on your pillow; it's a home away... More

Erratum to my first review: We stayed at the essex manor for 19 nights, so almost three weeks with my husband and two kids. The apartment is clean but the furniture look old and decoration pretty bad in my personal opinion. It was the Jymmy Steward. There is a lot of noise from the street: police, trafic, helicopters and we... More

This review was written by a guest attempting to retaliate for being charged for extraordinary cleaning costs because she allowed her children to write all over the walls, stained and damaged laundry, and left dirt spots all over a futon, as well as other unsightly conditions. It is the exception when we must charge a guest for extraordinary cleaning or... More

I had a heck of a time finding affordable lodging for my family of four during a recent trip to Los Angeles--especially as it just doesn't work to try to get my teenagers to share a bed of ANY size. Frankly, I almost didn't even bother writing to the Essex Manor: From their website, I got the impression that their... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Essex Manor from 07/24/13 to 08/14/13 at the Judy Garden room. The Hoteles location in LA is quite okay, but a bit too far from where things happened.The area is defined as Korea-town. The hotel has a great parking, good service and totally okey out area and a nice jacuzzi. The hotel offers... More

EssexManor, Guest Relations Manager at Essex Manor Hotel Apartments, responded to this review

The reviewer complains that the room was not cleaned during their stay when our rates, terms, and conditions reflect that the hotel apartment is rented as a furnished apartment without housekeeping services. Were we to add room service, our rates would have to be increased significantly, whereas most of our guests choose to take responsibility for themselves and save money.... More

Absolute perfection. I stayed in the Paul Newman apartment for 4 months whilst studying nearby. I chose the apartments because they are so well equipped (fully stocked kitchen with everything you could need), quaint boutique bathroom, a bed to die for and loads of linens and towels). For a small studio apartment it was really lovely and well thought out.... More

We stayed here for 1 week. The location was quiet enough, safe with gated entrance, and easy to get around the city from. We got the Marilyn Monroe room and it was just as it was in the pictures - no more, no less. Very Clean! Very good kitchen facility in the room. The only reason I would give it... More

The two of us stayed in the Eartha Kitt apartment for three days, and were delighted with it. It's adorable, and historic, very tastefully decorated in a retro kind of way, with black and white photos of movie stars and old LA--a tribute to the fact that the woman who built the place was a friend of Mary Pickford.

My husband and I stayed at Essex Manor Hotel Apartments with a small group of friends while attending a convention in LA. We all found the Essex to be a very good choice of hotel for our trip.
