The Montage is a very very good hotel in the heart of the 90210. It's stylish, safe, has good food, great service and the location couldn't really be any better.
It's newer than some of the other top hotels in the area and it should at least go on your list as a very high quality place to stay when in town.
Their service is great too and they even help me recover from a moron move. OK, so here'w what happened. Upon arriving at LAX early in the morning, this reviewer realized that something was left in the safe....... yes, back in the room. The cool thing was that the rental car had already been driven over the sweet spikes that are just past the sign that says, DO NOT BACK UP, MAJOR TIRE DAMAGE. So, that was awesome trying to explain the rental car back out for what was sure to be a Fast & Furious turn around. A quick call to Montage Security and they were waiting downstairs as I drifted around the corner and in to the valet area where the security dude was waiting with my items. BTW...yes, I made it back for a VA flight out of dodge with the aforementioned missing contents. I don't think a team of the Rock and Paul Blart couldn't have done it any better.
