Stayed at this hotel last year for a week, posted a review, but it never showed up. No sure why, but now that I've found some down time, I highly recommend it for tourists, though not necessarily for work, which is what I was doing. The lobby and bars are dark and intimate and posh. The rooms are done in a retro 70's style, with large platform beds, with strips of blue-tinted mirror on the ceiling, leather and chrome furniture that is much more for style than comfort, and big acrylic ball lights. Black sheers on the sliding glass door to the balcony make a beautiful, muted backdrop of BH at night, and there are, of course, gorgeous marble bathrooms. This is a Thompson property after all. But my favorite thing about the room? Hardwood floors! In an L.A. hotel! Stained dark and in a herringbone pattern. A little scratched from all that rolling luggage, but still really appreciated.
The service was excellent from start to finish, with unexpected extras like sake and wasabi peas to greet me, and milk and cookies the night before I left. My only gripe was that the beds don't have top sheets. The maid changes the duvet cover every day, so you either have to sleep with a down comforter every night, or nothing. Strange. Also, the desk chair, made of chrome with a cowhide seat was really not comfortable, though it sure looked sharp, but after hours at the computer my lower back longed for something more practical.
All the food ordered from room service was also quite good. Unfortunately, the pool was being repaired during my visit so I can't comment on it.
Don't know how older, more conservative travelers will feel about the 70's
"louche" style of the place, with its long, dark hallways, and I wouldn't recognize it for business travelers who have to work in the room, but I think others will be quite happy with the style and service here, but it doesn't come cheap.
