Experiencing the accommodations at the Crescent is akin to spending the night at an upscale campsite albeit with room service, alcohol and surrounded by Beverly Hills ambience. The platform bed is comfortable though a bit uneven, just like the terrain below a sleeping bag, just not as hard. The room is small like the size of a pup tent. Some of the staff could best be served by understanding and implementing the service of hospitality, though cordial some of them do need further training. The saving grace of this hotel for me was two-fold, the evening night clerk who knew and exhibited the grace of hospitality in all of his actions and the beautiful common lounge areas. There may be more activity in those areas later in the evening but when I was there on Sunday night between 6pm and 8pm, it was relatively quiet. I was able to read while waiting for a friend to arrive. We were able to engage in a very nice intimate conversation as we virtually ahd the indoor lounge to ourselves. And the old Paramount Studios lit up at night directly across the street were a beautiful backdrop to the fireplaces located inside and outside. I know it is a tiny thing but the hotel could also best be served by improving the quality of their soaps. There was one small bar of soap which was expected to also be used for bathing. I mean, really?!? Just some small items, maybe a mint on the pillow or at the desk when guests return home for the night would be small welcome ways to make the guest feel special. It doesn't have to cost a lot to foster goodwill. Continental breakfast could certainly be improved but since I had a voucher for breakfast, this was a moot point. I would definitely stay there again and hope that my room assignment wouldn't quite be so small.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This Beverly Hills hotel, a true boutique with just 32 rooms, is in the heart of Beverly Hills just 3 blocks from Rodeo Drive. The front palm lined terrace (breakfast, nibbles, tapas and dinner) faces Crescent Ave - a wide palm lined boulevard. Established in 1927 and newly renovated in 2013, the décor is casually Hollywood, like a comfy collection of styles from the studios' storehouse of set designs stretching from 1920 to 2013. The feeling is “at-studio-at-home” with a film designer’s whimsy. The terrace and lounge flow to create the hotel’s social hub, offering casual dining and a relaxing bar/lounge, punctuated by Beverly Hills chatter. Directly opposite the hotel are the historic offices of MCA Studios. Our hotel became MCA’s local choice, where a cadre of players would stay when in town. ... more less
