I liked my brief stay at The Charlie very much. The location in West Hollywood is great - nestled off a residential street. It is a quirky place that feels like old Hollywood. Lots of character, in keeping with the neighborhood. The duplex cottage I stayed in was tastefully furnished and very comfortable, with a kitchenette and dining alcove for... More

You cannot find a place more charming than Charlie. The place is teeming with character, with every room having its own distinct personality. I chose Charlie primarily because of its location, tucked in a residential area. You will need your own transportation to get to the City but its well worth the effort for the peaceful neighbourhood we were in.

Although a little too far east for my taste, The Charlie is a great property but we didn't utilize it to the fullest. The full kitchen is there to save you money on food but we didn't use it. The terrace on the roof was a great addition. We had a two bedroom bungalow. Front desk staff were great -... More

I was in Hollywood one one day for work and as I was without a car, wanted somewhere close to my meeting. I hate big chain hotels so looked for a decent mid-priced boutique hotel that met my needs. From the list I found, The Charlie seemed perfect - good location, good price ($200) and with some history - apparently... More

This place is very charming. It is located right in West Hollywood down a side street. You feel more like your going home than staying in a rented room. The room had a small kitchen then a large bedroom. It was something very nice and a nice change verses a regular hotel. I would of rated it excellent but our... More

We were originally booked into the "Sasha". Situated behind the main courtyard, it felt like an afterthought. The foot of the bed had about a 10" clearance from the wall and since a tv was hanging on the wall one had to duck while passing by the foot of the bed to reach the other side of the bed or... More

Dear LKJ9, Thank you for your review! The Sasha is a charming one-bedroom tucked away deep into the property.

So beautiful... The grounds are full of flowers that remind me of an English garden. Kitchen and washer dryer are very convenient. Snacks and drinks are provided. We stayed in the room called "Betty". Feels like your own condo; very nicely decorated.

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.
