This hotel has so much history. So many celebs. So many Rock and Rollers. The ghost of John Belushi. I can now say I stayed there...bucket list item. I recommend staying one night, eat in the restaurant and hang out. A cultural experience. Temper your expectations regarding comforts.

It's next to impossible to visit Los Angeles without a stay (or at the very least dinner/drinks) at the historic Chateau Marmont. Rent a bungalow if possible and enjoy some quiet time around the pool. Have a pre-dinner drink at the beautiful bar and then enjoy dinner in the open air courtyard. Or come for brunch and sip a glass... More

To my surprise this hotel was about as shabby as anywhere I have ever stayed. I thing a Motel 6 is nicer, really I'm not joking. I did a little math while sitting on the extremely uncomfortable awkward sofa in my room and figured I could buy most of the furnishings in this one bedroom suite for under $1000 at... More

We were staying at the Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica, but had read about the Chateau Marmont in the Harry Bosch Detective novels.. So had to pop in and see what the fuss was about. We rocked up to the front of the hotel, we were in shorts / polo / sailing shoes and checked incase there was a... More

Whatever you do - don't stay here. Amazing dining atmosphere but the rooms are just horrible and outdated. Stayed at many better places that were less expensive. Save your money and just have lunch or dinner here and you will really enjoy it!! It is still a great place to visit!

Such a disappointing stay. Visited five different hotels during our stay in LA and this was the definite low point. We stayed in one of the more basic rooms in the hotel which was tired, gloomy, noisy and stank of lots of stale smoke. Had not imagined that one needed to request a non smoking room and when I asked... More

Back here for 1 night after 3 years, and you’d still be hard pushed to find a hotel in LA with as much atmosphere as the Chateau. Got a free upgrade to a cottage, which whilst it takes you away from the buzz of the main building, the cottages themselves are a whole different experience. The setup / look and... More

I have always wanted to stay in this hotel and it didn't disappoint. Beautiful secluded pool area to relax, fantastic service and unique luxurious decor. I wouldn't say its shabby or outdated as some other reviews suggest. Food and drink quite reasonably priced considering the location. Loved it and would definitely go back. My only disappointment is that I didn't... More
