Had a great stay at the Sofitel Beverly Hills on my first ever trip to LA. Staff were very friendly and attentive, and I was pleased with an early checkin when I arrived 3 hours early. The room was very clean and comfortable - the bed was especially comfortable after a 14 hour flight. Having booking a Hollywood Hills View room, it afforded me my first ever view of the Hollywood Sign - a great welcome to LA!
Great location for a tourist as it's on there's a Starline bus stop right outside, and the Beverly Center is across this road.
Only small criticism was the cost of Wi-fi, but as the US has caught up with great pre paid mobile data plans available this was soon not an issue.
