I stayed at The Charlie for a weekend when I was visiting friends in LA recently. I used to live in this neighborhood in West Hollywood, but never knew about the hotel. I loved my accommodation (Steve). It was well appointed, beautiful detail with leaded, stained glass windows, full modern kitchen, washer and dryer in the walk-in closet and a... More

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. So, i arrived the night before my wife at around 8pm. First of all…. almost impossible to find from the street as... More

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

I stayed there in May this year. The locale is perfect and the apartments are really adorable but there is much improvement needed in customer service to call this a 5 star hotel. There are absolutely no amenities provided in the rooms. I arrived late at night to find no water, coffee, tea or a snack of any kind. As... More

For years and years and years I have to travel and am living in hotels for approx. 200 nights a year. Believe me, I do know them all.

The Charlie is lovely, it feels just like staying in someone's house. It is old and charming, and the fixtures and fittings reflect this. This is not a traditional hotel, with room service and so on, but is a great place to stay. The kitchen is well equipped, and there's a supermarket within walking distance so you can stock up...

Attracted by the charm and quant atmosphere of this hotel. The self contained rooms were nicely appointed with each having its own courtyard areas. The location of the hotel is reasonably close to all your needs. There is no 24 staff on site so be warned should there be a problem. We experienced a problem with our hot water system... More

I took a wild stab at staying at the Charlie because of its great location in West Hollywood and proximity to a very sick friend who lives there.

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.
