This hotel is situated in WeHo, the main gay district of Los Angeles. The result was a really cool local vibe, with a strong local arts community, millions of cute tiny dogs and some great food options close by. Our room was enormous, coming with a fully equipped kitchen, large bathroom and king sized bed, plus a huge TV. It... More

For the price, it's a steal... Make sure you take advantage of the pool deck upstairs, it's amazing. I woke up very early all three days that I was there and took a duo in the pool (it's open 24 hours). The rooms are beautifully, very clean and spacious. The staff is very friendly.

My son recently moved to West Hollywood, and I wanted to find a hotel near his new apartment.

I really enjoyed my time at Petit Ermitage. The staff was wonderful and friendly. They greeted me as I came in and out of the hotel.

Stayed here for a girl's weekend. It was an incredible experience. The Petit Ermitage is so much more than a hotel, it's a trip down the rabbit hole.

I recently stayed at the Petite Ermitage for two nights and it was a refreshing way to experience Los Angeles.

We stayed here for our anniversary. The rooms are comfortable, with flat screens, fireplaces, and well thought out lighting. The bathrooms are small but well stocked. The rooftop garden and pool make the place. Very romantic for any meal, or just lounging near the fire. Fresh cookies at check in were a sweet touch. The one bitter note is the... More

Petite Ermitage is our go-to choice in LA. My wife prefers it to the Ritz-Carlton. Its hip, fun, cool and has impeccable service. Our last trip we had a family emergency and the staff went out of their way (and cost the hotel some $) to take care of us. And yes, we love the roof-top.

Ritz what? You can't even compare us to that chain. I mean who still wears name tags now days and uses the same scripted verbiage every time they speak to a guest?

The Private Rooftop Club - replete with native gardens, a salt water pool, cabanas, an outdoor sunken fireplace and 360 degree views of the Hollywood Hills - is considered one of the premiere dining spaces in LA. ... more   less
