I stayed here for 5 nights with my wife for her birthday in May 2014, and was thoroughly impressed with everything they had to offer! I bought a internet loyalty package directly through the hotel website that gave us a 15% discount off the regular room rates, which I already thought were very competitive for Beverly Hills.
Location: Absolutely perfect! 10 minutes to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, 15 to the Griffith Park Observatory, 20 minutes to Santa Monica, and 25 minutes from downtown. Being able to walk to the Beverly Center (1 block away) was an added plus, since we definitely wanted to do some birthday shopping. There's a Target and CVS right across the street to stock up on water and refreshments to put in the fridge in the hotel room.
Hotel: Very contemporary lobby, friendly and helpful staff. Their valet parking was very efficient and safe, and we came and went at very irregular hours without any problems or delays. The hotel is only 2 floors, so there is no room that's far from the entrance. The wine and cheese reception from 5-7 p.m. daily was clutch more than once, and we made sure to take advantage of this amenity every day!
Room: Definitely get a room in the back of the hotel since Beverly Blvd. is a pretty busy and noisy street during rush hour. Our room was very quiet and larger than I was expecting. The king bed was extremely comfortable, and the free WiFi was a nice touch. During our downtime, we streamed shows from HBO Go on our iPad connected to the TV (through a cord on the TV stand already in place by the hotel). The chocolates in the room and daily weather forecast were a very nice touch as well.
Long story short, I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the L.A. area, and I couldn't imaging staying anywhere else on our future trips to L.A.!
