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

My 10 day stay at the legendary Chateau Marmont was sheer perfection. Unlike so many historic luxury hotels now revamped - and often destroyed - by celebrity designers, it was marvellous to see how the Chateau has bucked this banal trend, retaining its old-world glamour whilst still being the hippest place in town. My beautiful room had all the modern... More

Fun place for sophisticated meals or drinks at the restaurant. Lobby is fun for hanging out on the couches and having cocktails. Celebrity haunt for sure...but low-key. Sometimes quiet, sometimes busy, but always chic and interesting. Hotel feels a little beaten up and rooms are slightly dated. Some have kitchenettes as well. Makes you feel like you're part of the... More

Definitely a spot for hollywood ambiance. We had a bungalow which was large and spacious and surprisingly quiet considering the Sunset location. The staff was exceptional and attentive. Breakfasts were delicious and room service timely. Can't beat the lovely poolside lounging. What was not appealing were the stains on the bedroom carpet and the very vintage bathtub/shower. To avoid a... More

I cannot understand why this hotel is so highly rated. Yes the dining room is lovely and the garden pretty. But the rooms are soooo old fashioned and just not up to today's standards, particularly the bathrooms. And our experience of breakfast was very poor - wrong things, delivered, some missing, hot drinks virtually cold. And having pointed this out,... More
