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

You either get this place or you don't. It has absorbed the personalities of all who have made it their home over the years. It exudes a sense of timeless confidence - it knows who it is and it challenges you to decide if you have a similar sense of yourself. It is is a comfortable, welcoming refuge for those... More

mouth wateringly expensive and desperately in need of some refurb in the rooms. Shabby chic, ok I get that. But this is shabby chic gone dowdy in the standard rooms. Bathrooms in particular need a makeover. Excellent dining.

We've stayed at the Chateau every year, or thereabouts, for the past ten years and I've absolutely no idea why it's taken me so long to write this review. Because, with the exception of my own home (which contains my cats and so has a very unfair advantage) this is my favourite place on earth. It's how I imagine going... More

I had a wonderful stay at The Chateau. Everyone was extremely hospitable and welcoming. The front desk agent, Luke, was amazing and the bell staff were wonderful as well. The public spaces are stunning and the suites are timeless, well appointed, and clean. Loved it.

After reading the history of the Chateau, it became a bucket list destination. This legendary hotel has managed to maintain its glamour and charm without changing its bones, while the eclectic rooms have modern comforts and chic amenities. We found a haven which has not forgotten that good manners make a difference. We stayed on a Sunday night and loved... More

There is a lot to love about the Marmont: It's rich history, it's attempt to maintain the glamour that was once Hollywood. Unfortunately, it does not live up to it's reputation. You can only take the "shabby chic" decor so far. I loved the fact that it is funky and old and doesn't look like a chain hotel, however, newer,... More

My 7 day stay at the legendary Chateau Marmont has been an adventure. In a great location, with wonderful staff and service and a low key party atmosphere in the evening - it makes a great and sociable experience. In the heat however, I found the pool area to be inadequate, not enough seating and because of the foliage for... More
