Spent three nights here in March. Very much like a grand old home that's seen several generations of family. A little frayed at some of the edges, but comfortable and welcoming. There's a sense of permanence, not of fashionable trend-following. One has a sense that you can't surprise the people here because they've been here a long time, have seen... More

beautiful glamorous old hollywood hotel nestled in the hill right off Sunset Blvd. just wonderful - filled with old world charm & history. It is private and secluded. The pool is perfect. The staff is very accommodating. The food and drinks are priced a little high, but expected. The hotel is worn, so do not expect updated luxury. The luxury... More

Crowded, pretentious, and a staff with an awful attitude. If you want to be surrounded by people trying to get noticed, then this is your place. However, I do love the history, and architecture of the building, but that's it. The building and the grounds are beautiful. It was fashioned after the Château at Amboise is a château located in...

It's one of those places I felt I had to visit... It will only be once though! At $1000 a night the room was grubby. At 9 pm there is a parade on sunset boulevard that is so loud the entire building vibrates. I complained, stating I had paid over the odds for one of the best rooms, nothing was... More

The hotel is beautiful as is the staff and the majority of guests, but there is a specific entertainment-boozy way this hotel is meant to be enjoyed. The food is only good, the attractive staff is often too distracted to be doing their jobs, and the beautiful guests will keep you up all night unless you're in a cottage with... More

I've stayed here a couple of times in the last six months. I don't live in the L.A. area anymore, but simply love the memories evoked by the way the hotel has taken great pains to keep the hotel (I stay on the cottage side) the way I remember my childhood. There are well landscaped brick paths, fish ponds, lots... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here for three nights - it was a "bucket list" visit for him. It is very much a place of charming, old Hollywood glamour from a bygone era - don't expect sparkling, new or modern! We paid for an upgraded bedroom and it was worth it. The room had a very retro...

Didn't stay at the hotel. We had drinks and appetizers at the bar to people watch. It was luxurious. The live piano player and stories of rock stars and celebs had my starstruck self wide eyed. Didn't see anyone, but the paparazzi were out front. They are very sensitive to the privacy of their clientele – no photos allowed!

I gave it 4 stars for the a: attraction factor (which counts), b: the food quality and c: the staff. The hotel is quite run down. I wouldn't go as far as to say old world charm, although there are some aspects that qualify, it's really just, well... old. While that in itself can be charming for it's historical appeal,... More

Not the most modern of hotel rooms in LA but full of charm, and great foood and the best bar, choose a hillside or poorside bunglow for the real LA vibe , also dont forget to try rhe steak sandwich for lunch
