“The best hotel anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

I travel a great deal for work, always have, and this is simply the best hotel I have ever stayed in anywhere - and that's stayed true across 24 years of visiting and staying there. It is physically an oasis of green, with palm, banana, and other tropical trees surrounding the buildings; you would never know you are in LA (a good thing...), yet you are steps away from all the nightlife you can handle on the Sunset Strip. It is the kind of place where you run into old friends you haven't seen in years (and wish you had), and meet new ones. Food, service, rooms - all excellent. The Spa, unlike almost every hotel spa you will find, would actually be a standout spa all on its own with extremely skilled and professional staff across the gamut of services. The food is excellent and there's a good variety that should suit any palate.

This was our fourth stay at the Sunset Marquis and it is always a great experience. We stay here as we have family who live nearby and find it to be a great location. It is convenient to 3rd Street and which is nice to take a walk down and check out the local shops when I stay.

The staff are very professional, the hotel has a great feel to it and it is more interesting than a generic upmarket chain hotel. We had a guitar delivered to the hotel from New York and the hotel took great care of it until we returned on the way home. Jorge on the door is good fun and always looks after us!

The restaurant at the hotel is beautiful and feels like an oasis, rooms in the main hotel are clearly ageing but spacious and service is great. Loved being able to walk to
Sunset and lie by the pool without a 'scene' going on around. The villa room we had was too dark and the hotel definately has its own vibe which is not the super marble hotel feel of so many others inLA.

Room Tip: Wouldn't pay extra for a villa

We stayed at this hotel as part of road trip up the coast of California. I booked this hotel based on the reviews I read here. We had the junior suite and it was okay. The hotel gave excellent service from the moment we drove up to the valet. One of the guys even went over everything in our room. We had a fairly large bathroom in our suite. The bed is SUPER comfortable. You cannot beat the location of the hotel. It is walking distance to great places on Sunset Blvd. You will not regret staying at this hotel!

I had to visit LA for business, and was pleasantly surprised upon booking at the Sunset Marquis! I booked through Scarlett Hospitality Group, an online travel agency to recommended this hotel. Everything was perfect from the moment I walked in. Check-in was thorough and my desk agent was so nice (now i'm wishing I could remember her name)! My room looked like it had been just recently renovated, it was great! Very spacious and a good sized desk. Beds were comfortable, and the breakfast restaurant was nice and quick. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Hollywood or the LA area. I will definitely be back!

I was here for work and decided to splurge on the Sunset Marquis. Boy am I glad I did. I asked for a quiet room and got one. Had a private deck overlooking the pool. Walk-in shower. Everything was new and looked to be recently done. Breakfast at the Restaurant was good. Dinner was just okay, not great, but convenient and a lovely atmosphere. Staff are uniformly helpful and kind. Would return in a heartbeat.

My third stay at this amazing hotel was fantastic, again! Super friendly staff that always ensure a VIP feeling towards every guests. Great rooms, great food, even greater service! They provide you with free workout pass at Equinox at Sunset Plaza which is a must for the sporty ones. Enjoy, you will never regret choosing Sunset Marquis!

Room Tip: Ask for Villa suites!
