Happened upon this hotel online and it fit the bill since I had to stay four nights for work. My room was right on the road and underneath a family with young children so it wasn't quite as quiet as I had hoped but was wonderfully comfortable and in a great location. For a business trip I wished the internet... More

The Charlie can only be described as a hidden gem. On entering via electric gates you are greeted with a number of stunning little cottage style buildings amongst the Gardens and street lamps that light up the walkways in the evening. The General manager, Dylan, could not have been more helpful and accommodating on our arrival. We highly recommend The... More

I cannot begin to express how lovely this place is. Gorgeous, serene, safe, comfortable, quiet, I should stop or else I will flood this with 100 adjectives. You get the idea. I am obsessed with Charles Chaplin so I chose his personal cottage. I have never been somewhere so special and I travel TONS and stay in amazing places.

We stayed on 9 Feb. The estate was tucked away from the pretentious glam and glitz of LA.The estate was pretty and the accommodation was fantastic. We had a little trouble getting in, although we rang, to say that we were only going to reach the estate past 7pm. And one of the toilet door lock was stuck. Otherwise, it... More

We spent 45 days travelling in 4 different countries. The last leg of our journey was LA. Out of all the beautiful hotels I booked I was most looking forward to staying at 'The Charlie.'

This place is amazing. My husband and I stayed here for two nights to celebrate our anniversary and we couldn't have been more pleased with the service and accommodations. The Charlie suite was everything we could have asked for and more. It is a stunning and spacious two-story unit with the most adorable private patio, which was definitely a treat.... More

The Charlie is a lovely, atmospheric hotel in West Hollywood. The rooms are well presented and feel rather European with dark floorboards, white walls and lots of panelling. The kitchenette was fantastic, beds comfortable and the bathrooms clean and well decorated. The hotel has lovely gardens and an outdoor fire which adds to the atmosphere. It has secure parking and...

When I stay at hotels I value personalized service, cleanliness, charm, location and luxury. Without a doubt The Charlie hotel in the heart of West Hollywood has mastered each and every one of those characteristics.

I booked this hotel on Tablet Hotels and decided to stay here as my wife was joining me for the weekend and thought we would step it up. It is advertised as a boutique hotel. Key word, hotel.

Thank you for your review bob p. The Charlie is located in a residential neighborhood where signage regulations prevent us from acquiring a larger sign than the one we already have in place. And although this results in our property to blend in with the surrounding residences, many of our clients find this appealing (especially our high-end customers who seek... More

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
