“Concert at the Greek”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

My love and I stayed here this past weekend for an early birthday night out. The hotel is full of character, charm, style, and great amenities. The one and only fault I found was with the lack of counter space in the bathroom. There was no place for my curling iron, make-up bag or other toiletries. Overall, a very nice place with a feel like you're in a city other than L.A. We'll be back to check out the bar and restaurant when they open. Thank you for a great experience!

I was a little skeptical given the location and newness of the Hotel Normandie, but that all changed the second I walked into the lobby and experienced a warm greeting from the desk staff. This is a gorgeous historic renovation that is being renewed with obvious painstaking details. Work is still underway; food and beverage services are slated to come online within the next few months. But my room was completely renovated with tasteful style and comfort. I slept like a baby in the new bed. My room was positioned with an interior view and was completely quiet. Housekeeping was top-notch and the staff couldn't have been nicer! I look forward to returning next biz trip to LA! (And the offbeat KoreaTown location is actually very convenient -- I was minutes to both West Hollywood and downtown's Staples Center / LA Live area.)

Room Tip: The spacious suites are worth the upgrade!

I stayed here in AUG2012 and they were undergoing renovations. The entrance is awesome, you can see the character from the earlier days and they are keep the theme which is great. I can see 1920s weddings and events being held here once they are complete. The rooms are basic as well, this is not your fancy modern day hotel, this is your classic style hotel with a bed and a bathroom. I liked the location and it was close to other events I had to attend. I can see myself staying here again when I need that escape from the hustle and bustle of tech overwhelming. The staff was nice and rates were cheap. Good to see they are keeping this place in style with the original!

Got this hotel on Priceline. Great price. Just a few miles from downtown. Nicely renovated. Rooms are like new. Great bed and bedding. Nice flat screen tv. Free wifi.

Many Korean restaurants within walking distance.

This is a fabulous hotel - still going through renovations but no disruption or noise. Soon to be dining and bar apparently. Everything is fresh and new in the rooms, lovely bed and pillows. I've stayed in 2 different rooms (standard) and although one was small and perfectly adequate for one or two nights, because I was staying here 5 nights, they moved me to a larger room. Fantastic staff, very helpful and I feel very welcome here. As we will be regular visitors to LA, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Lots of restaurants nearby and feel safe on my own. Oh - and the wall plugs have USB sockets.

I recently stayed the night here with my daughter and our dog. I gotta say, it was great!

Pros:

* Hardwood floors were great for pets
* My daughter loved that there were 2 types of pillows on the bed, one firm, one soft
* Shower water pressure was AMAZING! Towels were very soft
* Front desk suggested us to go to the Boiling Crab right down the street and it was EXCELLENT! Great recommendation and so nice that it was walking distance.
* Valet service was quick and friendly. At first the price caught me off guard of $28.00 a night, but it was such a good service, that I didn't mind paying for it in the end.

Cons:

* Draperies were difficult to close. We had some light streaming in, because we had difficulty closing them. They were very heavy.
