I personally have mixed views for this review, had some positive & negative experiences. I can see the attraction, classic Hollywood hotel soaked in history & charm. Tower Bar is wonderful, and the service outstanding. Drinks & dinner served in a dark & relaxing sophisticated atmosphere, you may even spot a few famous faces. Food quality outstanding.

This is the second time I have been to this hotel. I returned this year because last years experience had been so wonderful and it is very convenient to where our children live. This year was not quite the experience I had last year. This year we were not welcomed in the same friendly way we were last year. The... More

Had a blast over the weekend at the Sunset Tower Hotel! Staff was awesome. Thanks for the upgrade to the balcony room. It was so great we just decided to stay in all night and celebrated in the balcony. A night to remember for sure. The restaurant by the pool was awesome too and Room Service staff were on it...

I just got back from a trip to California. I stayed again at the historic Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood. It was wonderful as usual. I had a very large one bedroom suite with a great view. The front of the hotel faces the famous Sunset Blvd. and the rear faces the valley with panoramic views. There are no... More

This building started out as a private club. But it is a wonderful hotel. Great dining room that fills with some stars and a lot of the behind the scenes crowd. Does not draw the splashy crowd but the more elegant crowd. Great rooms with views in all directions. A wonderful spa on site and a pool from the 20's... More

I have been coming here for years and the service never fails to amaze me. Angel is especially friendly, and with justin and Pedro, they really took the service to a new level today. What more could I ask for?? Good food, a beautiful view, and impeccable service. I love it here!!!!

I tell all of my LA friends that the best way to spend a weekend afternoon is The Terrace at the Sunset Tower, enjoying Chef Marvin's lobster tacos along with the wonderful Rose' they serve by the glass. In fact, last weekend I had the same menu Saturday and Sunday, and will likely have the same this weekend. The excellent... More

The hotel has increasingly placed importance in closing the pool and restaurant area for private functions - disregarding its guests who are staying there. While other options are available - the second restaurant or room service - be out by 2pm doesn't make you want to return. Their upgrade of their tv system also has a current 2 weeks till... More

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
