My daughter and I stayed here in August. This hotel is secure and relaxing, an oasis of calm in the middle of the mayhem of LA. It is well situated a stones throw from Melrose avenue shopping. It is a twenty minute walk from the nearest 'hop on hop off' bus tour. There is a good supermarket nearby. The apartment... More

Looking for a vintage feel of Hollywood 1920's with modern amenities? Then stay at The Charlie! Stunning classical bungalows with full kitchen, updated bath, comfy bed & cable TV! Wonderful friendly staff as well! Can't wait to stay again!!

My partner and I were looking for something in the West Hollywood/LA area for a close get-a-way. While we were looking for something different we came across The Charlie. Wow, tucked away off the noise of the strips is this boutique hotel that was used by Charlie Chaplin, Marilyn Monroe and other celebs I forgot back in the golden age.... More

The Charlie is ideally located for getting around LA and has lots of restaurants within walking distance. It is peaceful and the beautiful gardens, free parking and wifi are an added bonus. We stayed in the Steve room, which is one of the smaller rooms and although it is very nice, if your budget allows one of the bigger rooms... More

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

Thank you for your review Elizabethrm. We are thrilled to hear you've enjoyed your recent stay with us at The Charlie! We are glad you found our superb staff to be helpful and our charming suites to be comfortable!

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.
