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. The small studio apartments have all you need for a short stay, fully equipped kitchenette with a small table & chairs, very... More

Stayed 5 nights in a studio apartment here and while it was small, we knew that and it was still a great value. We all slept great. Nice clean place, cute decor, awesome bed, soft clean linens, cute blanket, soft fluffy pillows. Nice towels in the bathroom. Clean and new appliances in the kitchen. New furniture as well. Super great... More

I stayed here for a week based upon tripadvisor reviews and was very pleased. Heather was very responsive via email. Don, the on-site manager, was equally helpful. The apartments are very clean and well-furnished. My main reason for chosing an apartment over a budget hotel was the opportunity to cook meals. Don directed me to nearby supermarkets and the kitchen... More

The other reviews were spot on, the apartments are quirky and very clean. Good Comfortable bed, and the apartment has everything that you could want for, location ok as we could walk into the Metro, Car Hire best. Great value & thank you Don for looking after us with our early arrival

I stayed in what I believe was the smallest (and cheapest!) available unit at Essex Manor Hotel Apartments. (Mae West Suite.) It is probably the cleanest hotel I've EVER stayed in. I loved it. Here's what you get: Air-conditioned (wall unit) studio apartment; Nice bathroom with more towels than you can use for your stay! Fully equipped kitchen (full-size refrigerator,... More

This is not the most luxurious place in LA but I think it's very nice for the price. My friend and I stayed in the Audrey Hepburn room. The kitchen was very nice and the bathroom too. The location isn't perfect but as long as you have a car, you're fine. It's also very close to bus and metro rail.

We stayed in the Marilyn Monroe Apartment for 4 nights in August and we cannot be more happy. Our flight was cancelled and we had to arrive late but our phone didn't work in the Usa so we could not contact the resident manager directly. At our arrival he was very helpful and kind though, and he gave us a... More

We stayed in the Jimmy Stewart room for 8 days and before the trip was nervous about the location because I was traveling with my Mother and we have never been to LA before. The room was so charming and clean! Don, the manager in charge was very helpful. The location was perfect for what we needed. Centrally located to... More
