This place is a must see visit. Great staff and very friendly. The view at the outside pool deck is amazing. The service is excellent. The drinks were excellent, however pricey, the view was worth it. Trendy and upscale hotel situated at this location. Will put on the definite places to come back too!

Whilst staying at the hotel we called down to the bar for some drinks. There was a great atmosphere on a busy Monday night and the drinks went down well. The bar and restaurant area give off an air of class but with no pretentiousness. We had originally planned on having one drink but stayed for a few more as... More

Lobster tacos, salmon, sticky toffee - all in an incredible atmosphere. We were so lucky to have Elliot as our server each night (we stayed at the hotel) - his personality was the icing on the cake!

You go back in time.. Dimitri holds court over the crowd and if you know him by name it will help a lot. Tuxedoed gentleman with glasses and an accent that cannot be forgotten.

Restaurant location is very cool, just on Sunset Boulevard. Atmosphere is cozy and cool, very refined people (you may meet Hollywood celebrities over there!), very dark dining area and, and I would say, very "London look" ambience. Crowded during weekends, but that's LA! Menù is typically American taste, however food quality is very good. Booking is necessary. Recommended, if you... More

Low lights, dark booths, bartenders in white jackets... a scene from the 50's and 60's or more recently "Mad Men" with a terrific view of the city at night. Well worth the price of a Manhattan or Old Fashion to soak in the atmosphere and check out "the scene". I can imagine Dino and Frank having a drink here when... More

Outstanding cuisine and service in every way. The maitre'd, Dimitri is exceptional, and our waiter Max was superb! Choose from an impressive menu of steaks, seafood, foul and vegetarian selections. The shrimp cocktail and deviled eggs with caviar were fabulous. The Alaskan Halibut was delicious. Desserts are custom made for each person in your party. Cocktails are well chilled and... 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.
