We stayed at the Culver Hotel for 2 nights at the start of January. It was my wife, myself and our 5 year old daughter. It was a first trip to LA so we were not really sure where to stay but liked the reviews and location of the Culver Hotel so just went for it and am so glad that we did.
Hotel was a great atmosphere and you really feel like you are part of history - when we arrived there was a live jazz band playing in a great open room with a large open fire going - quite a welcome! Loved all the Wizard of Oz link and the history of the hotel.
Our room was a great size and really spacious, nicely decorated in keeping with the history of the hotel. Could see the Culver studios and Hollywood sign from the window. The local neighbourhood is great - loads of cool restaurants and a Trader Joe's just across the street for other supplies. We ate in the hotel which was very nice and very reasonable if you get there for happy hour. Location was really chilled out which I much preferred vs staying in Hollywood or Santa Monica.
The other bonus was that a continental breakfast was included - you got to have it in the fantastic bar/restaurant area and it really was very nice with a decent choice and you could be as quick or slow as you wanted.
Overall well recommended for anyone. The only negative was that it was pretty noisy when the band are playing in your room. Not really a problem for us as our daughter will sleep through anything and we were exhausted after sight seeing all day but could see how it might be a problem for some people - I think the solution is just to stay in the bar drinking :)
We enjoyed LA - loved Griffin Observatory and Universal studios and just driving around and finding new places. Being from the UK we loved the January California weather - if coming back to LA will definitely look into staying here again.
