I am embarrassed to say that we went to LA to see the semi-finals of "Dancing with the Stars". We were told on such a short notice that we only had 2 days to prepare for the trip. We booked the Montage through Magellean Vacations and were thrilled with the hotel; it exceeded our expectations. Both my friend and I are rather spoiled when it comes to travel, but we both felt this hotel was one of the best we have ever stayed in because of the service. The room was fine- the normal amenities- but the service was exceptional. From the moment you arrive, they know your name, what wine you like to drink, what time you want your room to be made up, your dining preferences, etc. We got into every restaurant we wanted and when we wanted . The Conceirge service was exceptional. The hotel is directly across the street from Spago and a new Bouchon Restaurant (Thomas Keller) has opened next door. Rodeo Drive and Beverly Drive are one block away. It seems to be the best location in Beverly hills. The gym is open 24 hours andhad fesh fruit, flavored water, and everyhting else one would ecpect from a top notch gym. We loved this hotel and can't wait to go back!
