I've stayed at the Petit Ermitage about 4 times now and it's great every time. I do have one complaint, which is that they have discontinued their lemon ricotta pancakes, which i had started to dream about before every trip. I am so disappointed and hope they reconsider. Aside from that one problem, this is one of my fave places to stay in LA. The rooms are very spacious (w/ a pullout couch in the sitting area if you need to share a room) and the beds are super comfy. the rooftop is the star of the hotel tho. a french garden with private areas and flowers planted to attract butterflies on one side, a small saltwater pool on the other and a fire deck for drinks in the evening. I've stayed here for work and with my husband and both were great. Because the rooftop is a private club, there is good LA people watching up there. Rumor has it Johnny Depp has been seen there. They also occasionally have a sign at the front desk asking people not to take pics of celebs visiting the hotel. It's just a fun place with a casual, french country vibe. The staff is also really friendly and super helpful.
