“Great pool and rooftop bar in a fantastic location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

We stayed for one night at this hotel and it was in a great location - cool restaurants nearby on Sunset, Melrose etc. The rooftop is the best feature of this hotel - an oasis to take in the view at a poolside area.

I have stayed at the Petit Ermitage twice now, and each time I have not been disappointed. The hotel is beautiful and the staff are friendly. The rooftop club is the perfect place for a cocktail after a long days shopping.
The only negative is that, as guests, we still had to pay for the valet parking, which I would of thought should be free if you are staying in the hotel.
Otherwise, great value for a great place to stay

I find the hotel a place for me to unwind and a great place to meet friends and family when returning to the USA. Your rooftop pool and garden restaurant provides a fabulous jet lag recovery space. Your rooms only need a better sound system to give me you a 5 rating.

We had a perfect stay, this hotel is such a gem, definitely recommended, I just can't give a five stars because it is occupied by a pretentious 'nouveau riches' european artists wannabe. We are Europeans ourselves and actually the only nice people we came across were the americans who were actually doing something creative in their lives. Anyway, except from that, the staff is amazing, everything is open 24h, pretty rare to find such an opportunity in California! And the location! just above santa monica boulevard, under sunset boulevard, what else?!?

Room Tip: It looks like all the rooms are the same, get the executive suite package tho

Stayed for 3 nights in late July. Hotel came recommended by a friend who also lives in West Hollywood.

Fantastic central location, near Santa Monica Blvd but a block north of the busy street on a quiet residential street. Many options for dining within walking distance, including a fantastic French pastry cafe a few blocks away on Santa Monica Blvd. walking distance to central/tourist Hollywood (about 45 minute walk or $15 taxi). Beverly Hills also a short drive away.

We arrived late afternoon to be greeted with a huge lineup of cars waiting to get into the underground parking. Turns out there was a function on the rooftop that night so many cars overwhelming the valet. Eventually got parked and didn't want to take the car out during our stay due to hassle factor. Valet staff very friendly. Front desk staff and checkin smooth, pleasant staff. Hotel very eclectic with a European feel. Room was nice size and included a small kitchenette. Bed comfortable but room had a bit of a musty smell until air conditioning turned on. Bathroom and shower pressure fantastic. Shampoo and bath gels provided of very high quality - wish I could have brought a bunch more back with me! Peaceful sleep and no noise issues.

Pool and rooftop deck certainly the highlight. Beautiful views of the city (and if you're really lucky on a day without a lot of smog, you can see downtown LA). Nice pool area as well as fireplace for the evening. Staff attendants at the pool attentive and friendly. Only complaint here is that on top of already outrageous drink cost (understandable given "exclusivity" of the place), there's an additional service charge (I believe it was 16%) as well as expectation of a tip. Huh? A little much. If the service charge is intended as a tip, it should be listed as a gratuity. If it's not, it's really discouraging people from properly tipping their service staff. Count on $25 drinks once you've factored in taxes, tips and service charges.

All said, a positive experience and I would recommend the hotel to all who have expectations of a more European style experience. If your thing is more like a Hilton, you may be disappointed as it's just not like that - very different and in a good way.

Beautiful spaces, gardens and pool! The rooms felt residential, not corporate. I enjoyed eating my breakfast in the garden terrace with fountains. The pool is beautiful at night overlooking the city lights.
