Like magic you are taken away to a small English Village in the heart of the city. Not for those that like lots of services but this is LA and its like returning to restful place to recharge. Rooms are classy with lots of space, kitchen, and living room. I stayed in Betty which was adorned by all the appropriate... More

The Charlie is the perfect spot if you want to hide away and yet live like the locals. The hotel is short on ammenities(no pool, bar, food service...) but long on charm and quiet. You are really renting a bungalow with maid service. We took the two story cottage fabled to be Charlie's own (and if the diminutive doorway is... More

Just returned from our stay at the Charlie Hotel in West Hollywood. Booked it last minute yesterday because it fit the budget and I can honestly say that I was pleasantly surprised. It is conveniently located right off of Melrose Ave in West Hollywood. SUPER easy walk to the restaurant "Ink" which is really yummy (America's Top Chef winner)....So this... More

The hotel is nicely situated, calm neighbourhood, but the parking which uses 1/3 of the hotel terrain spoils a bit the quaint atmosphere. The room we had was big, even enourmouss with sofa and kitchen, but there was hardly enough space to move around the king sized bed to go to the bathroom. Furthermore it was a bit smelly and...

I was there February and just wrapped up a second stay the beginning of April. Loved it. While there, I booked a third stay for July. I am very picky and when I love a place I am a loyal customer for life. This is THE place for me now when I come to West Hollywood. The grounds are just... More

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.'

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.
