The Charlie provides exclusive luxurious accommodations to a worldwide clientele, whilst preserving the natural and historical beauty of the property's grounds. The landmark upon which The Charlie resides today was first built & established in 1924 by the Ruth Gordon family. Word has it that numerous movie star legends have roamed these grounds in the past, living out their glorious days to the fullest! Charlie Chaplin, Marilyn Monroe, and Gloria Swanson are only a few of such legends to name, to whom at one point or another The Charlie grounds were believed to have been a home! In 2002, threatened by re-development, this historical landmark was acquired by Menachem Treivush and has since undergone a multi-million dollar renovation. By carefully preserving historically-scrutinizing details, incorporating the technology of today, and dedicating careful attention to detail, Mr. Treivush has rapidly built up The Charlie into the unique establishment that it is today! Since re-opening to the public in 2008, The Charlie has become known as The Hidden Gem of the legendary West Hollywood!

This is my favourite place to stay whilst travelling to work in Los Angeles. I love the history surrounding the hotel and while you are in your villa, it really feels that you are just part of the neighbourhood! I enjoyed cooking breakfast in the small kitchenette and loved that the location was in West Hollywood, so it's just a quick walk to the closest Sugarfish or Urth Cafe! Thanks again for a great time and I will definitely be back!

So super comfortable. Heart of WEHO. I had forgotten how much I love sushi but there are sushi joints all around and so yummy! The Charlie is two/three blocks north of Melrose and three blocks south of Santa Monica so very easy walk to shops and restaurants, including Sushi!

I was fortunate enough to stay at this lovely location for a month. I was there during the riots in California, my eyes never saw what happened to the outside world. I was pretty much the only resident, except for a few nights… Their location is magical, and the staff allowed me to be Me! After a while, I became quite close to everyone working there, it literally felt like my home away from home… The gardens, to the fireplace, to the upstairs deck… Which I would make my stage late at night, to entertain my own audience in my head… Have all been Life-changing. The manager, Kasey, who has a heart of gold, I still chat with once in a while, she made me feel so welcomed! Dillion, who was the main man on campus, was such a sweetheart… Also… If I may be so bold to say… Extremely good looking! ( Heya Dillion...lol ) The experiences I had at this hotel forever changed me, from the depths of my soul, I thank everyone involved that allowed me to grow and blossom in there. I will always look fondly on this location, as the catalyst that brought me back to life!

We really loved The Charlie. It was our first time staying at this location and we love how quaint the rooms were. The grounds were beautiful with rose gardens, fountains and an outdoor fireplace. Our room had a secluded outdoor patio where we enjoyed sitting in the evening upon our arrival and in the morning while drinking coffee. The room was well appointed and quite. Also the hotel was within walking distance to restaurants. Kayse provided excellent customer service!!! We hope to stay here again!!!

This was our second time to stay here.. and honestly, I think this is going to be our LA hotel whenever we visit. This charming throwback Inn whisks you back to a romantic bygone era and at the same time lavishes you with modern luxury. The cleanliness is impeccable. The service is spot on. We felt so pampered - We did not want to leave!
