“An Amazing Birthday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2011

Had the most Amazing Birthday ever! This Hotel is Absolutely stunning and the people are so accommodating. Grant aka "Liaison to Happiness" is the BEST! Ask for him when you stay here! He will greet you with the biggest SMILE!!! Enjoy!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2011

This really is a boutique hotel in that it is small, has a lot of personality, is in a nice but funky neighborhood, with an artsy feel. Very eclectic decor with a French, kind of New Orleans, theme. Bathrooms were not large, but the shower was very nice. The rooftop garden, pool area was beautiful and comfortable. The hotel has a very young, and very attentive staff. Our room on the third floor was very noisy, with lots of noise coming from the kitchen and rooftop, but it was New Years Eve and the noise started up again about 6 a.m. They were serving a New Years Day Brunch that day. Rooms away from the kitchen would be a lot quieter. We could walk to several nice restaurants. Great location and I would stay there again.

Thank you so much for kindly reviewing our property and noting our distinct personality which we very much hope is apparent not only in our art centric décor but also in the careful selection of our all concierge, international staff, as well. We are so pleased you had the opportunity to experience our lovely Private Rooftop Club while you were with us and enjoy some of the festivities associated with ringing in the New Year. Being truly hospitable means being in the business of fun and that particular evening was especially so! Our Gypsy Brunch, which is generally offered in the Club on Sundays, was offered on the Saturday following the Eve and was quite well attended due to a combination of the prior evening’s festivities coupled with the fact that it includes a roving Bloody Mary Cart that features “Bloody’s” hand muddled to order. Few things can brighten a morning after such festivities like a soothing shower (featuring custom waterworks shower heads) and an excellent Bloody Mary! Thank you so much for kindly reviewing us and we very much hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Petit Ermtage very soon in the new year!

Great pick between Sunset and Santa Monica Boulevard, former apartment building has been renovated into fantastic hotel. Our room downstairs was spacious&beautiful, comfy bed, kitchen, balcony and even fireplace...

But, as probably everybody else, we really loved the rooftop bar/pool/lounge. That is just fantastic,no wonder why they are hosting some fashion/cocktail events every once and then... Check pics of the other reviews!

Location is in quiet residential area between Sunset and Santa Monica blvd = great location party, eating and specially shopping wise! As hotel guests, we received some discount in selected shops in the area > check their website for more details. Would recommend Italian restaurant called Cecconi, it is about 10mins walk from the hotel, on the corner of Melrose and Robertson.

All together, a great stay. Very friendly service everywhere plus free WIFI in the room and rooftop. Will return!

Thank you for kindly reviewing us and participating in our seasonal “Shop Hollywood!” program. During the Winter Holidays, Petit Ermitage proudly offers its guests discounts at partnering retailers, the opportunity to book celebrity stylists and invitations to private fashion events, which are hosted in the Hotel’s lovely Private Rooftop Club. The majority of the boutiques we partner with are local to LA and specifically the West Hollywood area – which means our guests have access to some of most unique (and fabulous) shopping in the world! We are so pleased you had the opportunity to enjoy some of the shopping about town and then return to a gracious suite after. As an all suite property, each of our rooms feature step down living areas, working fireplaces and many have kitchenettes, as well. In addition, we offer unusually large closets and professional steamers in each suite – both of which are perfect for all those newly acquired fashionable items! Thank you for staying with us, we are so pleased you were able to enjoy “Shop Hollywood!” while you were with us and we very much hope to have the pleasure of being included in your holidays plans in 2011!

This is a great boutique hotel in the heart of West Hollywood, which is truly a fabulous place to be in L.A.! I have stayed here over and over and am more impressed with the staff each time I come. There is even a "Liason to Happiness." His name is Grant and he has put a smile on my face with his outstanding service on more than one occassion. Believe me I stay in a lot of hotels and the concierge and front desk staff is second to none here. In addition, it's a very cute boutique style hotel with comfortable rooms and beds. I sleep great here and I love that bars/restaurants and a lively scene are just steps away. The best part is despite all the action being so close, it is a hidden gem in a quiet residential neighborhood, making it even more appealing. I rarely write reviews of hotels, but finally decided I need to give kudos to Petit Ermitage after my last stay. Highly recommended!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience regarding our property. Please allow us to express an additional note of gratitude given the self professed infrequency with which you write. We are thrilled you have had consistently pleasant experiences with our Liaison to Happiness, Reservations and Revenue Manager and concierge staff. We take great pride in our people and are delighted they have positively influenced where you choose to stay when visiting West Hollywood. Our location is indeed very quiet, yet steps away from all the fun on Santa Monica and Sunset Boulevards. May we have the great pleasure of welcoming you to Petit Ermitage in the near future and the good fortune of seeing your smile soon again!

Stayed two nights as a stop over to London. Great little place, close to sunset boulevard and not far to most places in car or cab.

The real gem in this place is the roof terrace. A small but good pool, relaxed seating for food or drinks. Humming birds flying around and the sound of the fountains in the background, great place for breakfast or an cocktail at sunset.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience while you were our guest and kindly noting our prime location - which is tucked away on a quiet residential street in West Hollywood, though literally just steps from all the entertainment on Sunset and Santa Monica Boulevards. We are so pleased you enjoyed our lovely Private Rooftop Club and had the opportunity to spy one of our resident hummingbirds whizzing by! The Private Rooftop Club is proudly recognized as a Hummingbird and Butterfly Sanctuary by the National Wildlife Federation and a portion of our proceeds are donated on an annual basis to this very worthy cause. We are honored these delicate creatures alight on a daily basis in our urban oasis and planted our Garden with flora and fauna specifically to attract and safely harbor them. We very much hope we will have the pleasure of your company again and that one of our feathered friends will be ready to warmly greet you upon your return!

This hotel was a delight and can recommend to anyone who wants to be in West Hollywood and within a two minute walk to Beverly Hills, Sunset Strip, the famous route 66 and some excellent restaurants
The open top bus excursion was also within a two minute walk
The rooms are well laid out with very comfortable beds and free internet
A ROOF TOP GARDEN BAR AND RESTAURANT adds to the delight and having a late night supper in November with open fires a patio heaters overlooking Beverly Hills and Hollywood was a wonderful
Add to this a roof top swimming pool and a separate gym for the keep fit addicts this hotel is a little gem just waiting to be discovered

Thank you for kindly reviewing us. We are so pleased you enjoyed our custom L’Ermitage mattresses, which are made specifically for our property (Petit Ermitage is the only place in the world where you will find them) and had a chance to work out in our gym which features “Techno Gym” equipment before retiring to the Private Rooftop Club for a dip in our heated saltwater pool and dinner under the stars. Thank you so much for sharing your experience and we very much hope to have the great pleasure of welcoming you as our guest again in the near future!
