The Luxe Hotel is a very nice option when visiting UCLA or the West LA/Westwood area. We've stayed previously at the Palomar and W, and would rate this in the same category. The Luxe has a great, easily accessible location right off the 405 on Sunset Blvd. The staff is extremely helpful and enthusiastic. Everyone greets you with a smile and a genuine welcome. The rooms are very spacious and nicely decorated in a Crate and Barrel style...lots of taupes, grays, and whites. Our room had a nice four-poster bed with a large sitting area and a huge bathroom with a large tub and a large shower. Everything was clean and spotless. There is also an upper level with pool and spa. The rates were reasonable, but the only negative was that they tend to nickel and dime you. For example, the room has a Keurig coffee maker, with one regular and one decaf pack. If both of you happen to like regular coffee, you have to pay $3 for the extra pack. That's crazy. Also, on our second night at the hotel, our daughter, who is a student at UCLA, decided she wanted to stay with us. The good news was that the room and bathroom were plenty large and comfortable to accommodate her. The bad news was that they charged us $30 for the rollaway, even though the in-room guestbook stated that it would be $25.
So, bottom line, is that it's a very, very nice place with lots of positives. If they can eliminate the unnecessary, trivial nickel and dime stuff, I'd raise my rating to five stars.
