I spent three nights at the Chateau in November 2009 while in West Hollywood on business. The Chateau is definitely a celeb hot spot, but it's far from the most luxurious hotel in the world. Registration was painless enough, and the gentleman at the desk was kind enough to show me to my room personally. The suite was large and... More

I booked this hotel because it was written up as one of the hotels you need to "Stay in Before You Die". I took my husband there as a weekend getaway. Aside from the fact that there are celebrities at every other table during dinner, this hotel is seriously lacking. The lobby and restaurant have the romantic, old-time Hollywood feel,... More

My Partner and I decided to treat ourselves and stay at the famed Chateau Marmont, because of it's history and also because of the convenience of where it is. We paid quite alot of money to stay here (which we don't mind), and it was disappointing from beginning to end. Dirty, aged (not in a good way) suite, negative/bad attitude... More

the carpet in the first room i was given was soaking wet, and the bathroom was covered in mold and stank badly. When i turned the radio off, the noise from the industrial unit in the hall was overwhelmingly loud. when i complained, the second room i was given was a bit better, though the bathroom was still mouldy, the...

We stay here loads - love the staff, always very well looked after by the booking team... may be quite pricey for some, but fun if its your first time in Hollywood.... long live the Chateau ; ) (ps don't expect anything ridiculously luxurious, the rooms are all straight out of the 50s but very cosy!)

On a recent trip to Los Angeles with my daughter and two of her friends, I booked the Chateau Marmont for our first night. Since there were four of us, we booked a junior suite for about $480.00. It was incredible! We were on the second floor and there was a large bedroom with a king bed, two closets, a... More

I've stayed in L.A. on business trips for over ten years. During that time I've attended quite a few dinners/parties at CM. I've often thought I'd like to stay there. The only good thing I can say is that I've got it out of my system! The service was terrible. I waited 20 minutes before anybody took my breakfast order.... More

If you haven't heard of the Chateau and you would up here by accident you may wonder what is going on, well I'll tell you what's what! This hotel is old Hollywood in all it's castle like splendor! But let's not be misguided; it's not just old Hollywood for the heart of this hotel still beats strong with a mad... More

My husband and I decided to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary by staying in Hollywood, CA. We had seen the Chateau many times in our travels so decided we would give it a shot! What a great idea that was! The hotel is conveniently nestled right off Sunset Blvd but is also very quiet and private. We had booked... More

Room was not clean upon arrival. When reporting to the concierge we had to plead our case for them to fix it or give us an alternate room. Rather than apologizing they attempted to just have us deal with it instead of accommodating us. I feel like if we had assistants or an alias to check in under, they would've... More
