The Chateau isn't for everyone, the best way I can describe it is like staying at a wealthy eccentric aunts house! You totally feel like one of the family and staff treat you as an old friend, something I have never experienced anywhere. There is good service, then there is Chateau service and the service at this hotel totally exceeds... More

This is a 3 star hotel masquerading as a 4-5 star based purely on its star appeal. Yes I saw two major celebs at two separate tables and a few other b or c list celebs acting as though they were a list. But the service was terrible, the food only meh, the gym is laughable and the pool is... More

Stopped By for a cocktail. Most expensive valet in L.A.Bar was crowded, noisy, long wait for a way overpriced drink. Won't be back. If you like to spend a lot of money to be seen and look this is the place for you.

I always forget about the Chateau for lunch. Great outdoor space with the best most eclectic people watching in LA. Artists, star, musicians...you name it and they are around. Say nothing of the famous grand dame herself, the hotel. It just reeks of stories and history. And guess what? The food is fantastic! We went early and had our choice... More

Most cool hotels don't hold that status for very long. Like the open and shut of an aperture, their blink-and-and-you-miss it moment is like Icarus in the sun. But not Chateau. Somehow this hotel actually transcends cool. It retains the air of a private, exclusive club whilst letting anyone (provided they can afford it) rent a room. It's not the... More

I flew into LAX and made my way to The Chateau alone. After settling into my room, I returned to the lobby. Me: "I'd like to have dinner." Gentleman Staffer: "Certainly." (Silent pause. He stares at me, and I at him.) Me: "Well, where is the dining room?" Gentleman Staffer blithely shrugs: "It's anywhere you want it to be." I... More

Our one-night stay at CM was for the purpose of experiencing "old Hollywood". With that in mind, it did not matter much that we waited over an hour for our room to be ready (past the 3:00 pm check in), as we were seated on the patio and provided free cocktails ($18 for one cocktail).! Yes - we did see... More

Let me stay straight away that we did not stay here, but wish we had. We were on a whistle stop tour of LA, Grand Canyon, Vegas and San Francisco. We were last in LA 18 years ago and I drove past the Chateau Marmont. I immediately recognised it as being the hotel that many rock legends have made famous.... More

Good place to see and be seen. Good service, great rooms, great food and great location to have the full "hollywood experience". To rent a car, of course, is always a good idea in LA, no matter where you're staying!

I have to admit that I entered the Chateau with in my mind the idea to find another cool hotel with poor service: I was totally wrong. More than the scene and the aura of the Chateau, what I was impressed by was the excellent service and the attention to the needs of the costumer. My room (a suite) was... More
