I think the reviews of this hotel really say it all - you love it or hate it. For me, it was love. When you check in, it does feel like the hotel california, with alcoves, dim lighting and a bit of spookiness throughout. It didn't help that my room was number 66! True, it is a bit musty and...

I stayed here with a friend who always raved about the glamour of the Chateau but I was very hard pressed to find anything glamourous about this faded screen star. Granted, our room was big but the bathroom had peeling paint, a tub stopper that was a moldy circle of plastic, and no, I repeat, no power outlets. Not good... More

The Chateau Marmont is a beautiful old hotel. It's very old Hollywood. And that's part of the problem: The rooms are small, not especially comfortable (the bathroom was bigger than the room, it felt) and the walls are super thin. I know that the Chateau is where Hollywood types party, and perhaps I should have expected the screaming at 3am... More

This was our second year running at the hotel - last year we brought the kids and rented a cottage in the grounds. This year we had a first floor rear facing suite with no kids - perfect. My wife and I just love the hotel, the pool, the staff and especially the terrace restaurant. Everyone has a script with... More

A lot of guests having problems at check-in, we didn't get the cottage we had booked but once we did it was bliss. The hassle was part of the staff, one part nice and service minded - the other half seriously not understanding they aren't Tom Hanks - the are service people that unlike their guests actually have to work...

This was my second stay at the Chateau and I absolutely love the place. It's certainly not for everyone: rooms vary widely, service is friendly but casual, and the vibe is laid-back rather than crisp and efficient - it's definitely not the Four Seasons, and all the better for it. What you get when you stay here is access to... More

I was really excited to stay here for a few days of luxury while away on business. I'm visiblly pregnant and traveling is oh-so much easier when I stay in fabulous places with great service. That being said - the Chateau has been my biggest hotel let down ever~! When I went to check in, the incredibly pretentious little boy,... More

Let me start by saying this: the Chateau Marmont is not for everyone. They charge 5-star prices for accommodations that are probably 3-4 stars at best, but combined with the allure of Hollywood, their prime location, and access to their oh-so-exclusive (in their opinion) bar and pool area, it's worth it if you're in the mindset to party Hollywood-style. I... More

Finally got to stay in the famous Chateau Marmont. First off, let me say that you can definitely get a far more luxurious hotel experience for the same - or less - price at a number of other LA hotels. If you want the perfect room and the huge marble bathroom with gold fixtures and a tv over the tub,... More

We are a family of 4 who stayed for 5 nights at the Chateau. We had a 2 bedroom suite and it was exactly as expected. The sense of history, nostalgia and ambience was wonderful.
