We have a son who lives in LA and visit several times a year. We used to take a bungalow at the Beverly Hills hotel and loved it so much we figured no hotel could be better. To test our theory we then tried the Beverly Wilshire, the Bel Air and a couple of hotels on the beach in Santa Monica and came to the conclusion that the Beverly Hills was still the best. Until now. Last January we were upgraded to the Presidential suite at the Montage and loved it. But we figured that it was not a fair to compare that suite to a bungalow, so this time we took a corner suite at the Montage. Our conclusion- other than the lack of star power and a great swimming pool, the Montage is at least equal, maybe even a tad better. First the room- we stayed in corner suite 514. It was perfect in every way. The suite elegant. Tastefully decorated. You enter via a long hall. On the left is a large closet- perfect for our winter coats when traveling from Chicago. On the right of the hall is a guest bathroom with a separate toilet room. Straight ahead is a large living room- an L shaped couch and table with 4 chairs. A fireplace with a flat screen tv above, fun hollywood books on the shelves and a work desk with fold out electronic plugs for our smart phones, ipad etc. Wi fi is included. Thermostats in both the living room and bedroom. There was a large balcony with 2 comfy chairs and footstools with a table between. The large bedroom had a king size comfortable bed, comfortable linens and pillows- important to me and my bad back. The bedroom also contains a second table and chairs and 2d work desk along with a full size dresser and flatscreen tv. There are cut glass lamps on each bedstand. A hall way to the bathroom has full size his and her walk in closets on each side with built in dressers, much storage for hanging items- dressess, jackets, etc. and 2 luggage racks in the event you do not want to unpack into the dressers. A marble bathroom with his and her sinks, a large glass shower, a separate tub and separate toilet room and of course top drawer toiletries. Heck, even the walls were rounded so you could not inadvertently hurt yourself if you rounded a corner too tightly. The Montage staff is extremely friendly and the hotel is much better located than the Beverly Hills as it is in the heart of downtown, walking distance to every amenity- restaurants and Beverly Hills shopping. The workout room was excellent- really good machines. My wife had a manicure at the spa and was very happy with the results. At the rooftop restaurant the view are very pretty. The breakfasts were excellent as was lunch. Again, other than a lack of recognizable movie stars and great swimming pool (the rooftop pool was under construction, but last time we were there was nothing special) this is a great choice. And the Beverly Hills needs a facelift as the amenities such as digital heat, separate sinks etc. are not up to the Montage's standards. A corner suite at the Montage is pricey, especially with the crazy 20% plus tax imposed by city and state, but in the end, worth the cost.
