Taking the advice of a friend who lived just a couple of blocks away from this boutique hotel, I booked Maison 140 for a first and last night's stay for a mother-daughter vacation. We booked a king bed, which was a perfect choice. Originally, I had booked through an online travel website, but they botched the reservation (actually deleted it), so I highly recommend calling the hotel direct for best prices and information about your reservation and accommodations. The front desk staff members were so helpful and friendly. The bedroom was lovely (I believe we even got an upgrade), the bathroom large and complete with wonderful bath items, and you do have a safe, as well as internet access. We had complimentary champagne each afternoon, and there is a private elevator to take you to your room. Thank you to the front desk staff member who told this semi sophisticated (Beverly Hillbilly?) traveler that you had to push the elevator door in order for it to open at each floor. Otherwise, I might still be in there with my luggage, waiting for the door to open. Thank you to Ilar who called us from the road to make sure we knew they had secured an early check in for us. All staff members were personable and knowledgeable, which is always nice. When checking out, we were given super directions to circumvent the LA Marathon traffic..a great help! Parking is $28/day, but we had a rental and parking was just a few steps away from the entry to the hotel. We didn't take advantage of the workout room; we were told you do have pool and cardio fitness privileges at their sister property. We also did not have breakfast at the hotel or take advantage of the bar, (we were on the road!) but there is a cozy bar and furnished area on the first floor with chairs set up for intimate conversation. Clean, pretty, quiet, great location. Thumbs up! Would love to return.
Call the hotel direct when making reservations.

I appreciate you taking the time to write a review of Maison 140. I'm delighted to see you found the staff friendly and helpful. We strive to provide excellent service to all guests (semi-sophisticated or otherwise). Hopefully you will be able to experience our lovely Bar Noir and our pool at our sister property, Mosaic Hotel, during your next visit to Beverly HIlls. We look forward to welcoming you back.
