Millennium Biltmore Los Angeles

Reviewed August 24, 2013

Arrived to a $40 charge for Valet parking and a queue at check in.
Despite this, the hotel was fairly opulent looking. Our rooms were really nice, well furnished and clean. No sign of any refurbishment needed at all!
My only criticism was the parking charges and the fact that I had to pay a small fee for WiFi..in this day and age!!
Even the Comfort Inn has free WiFi!
All in all a decent and comfortable Hotel offering up market accommodation at Value for Money prices

Lobby is nice but the rest of the place did not really stand out. The surrounding are is not really interesting or inviting for walkers. Basically office buildings with some street level stores. But I wouldn't wander too far.

I stayed here for work for a few nights and was enjoying my stay, but now, on my last night here, there is very loud and unnerving construction/drilling-type noise right outside. It started hours ago and is still going strong at 10:30pm. I can't tell exactly what the noise is coming from, but if you are considering staying here in the near future, I might suggest calling and asking about this first.

The "poor" rating is in relation to the price as well as the hotel. Whilst the lobby and entrance to the hotel is impressive the rooms didn't come close to competing with others half the price.

It is very close to the subway station and location is good. There was virtually no where to eat in the area on a Sunday afternoon/evening.

The room was tiny, the bed was small, the room was dated, the bathroom looked unclean due to its age and discolouration. The rooms didn't come close to the pleasant appearance suggested by the website.

The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Arrived and we wowed by the reception and 1st floor. It went downhill faster than a formula 1 car after that.

We were given a room on the 8th floor which was very tired and dated and could do with a good clean. No safe in the room although handbook in room states all rooms have safes.

Asked to be moved to a room with a safe which the hotel did. 4th floor. Was a bigger room to. Still could do with a clean.

Do not eat breakfast at Smeraldis. $25 each for a lukewarm very basic buffet. Go to Starbucks on the corner.

When we arrived on Sunday night, there was no where open to eat in the hotel. It was only 7pm. We asked a staff member if there was anywhere nice nearby. He suggested Ihop or Dennys. I couldnt believe it.

Positives of the hotel are great location as very close to the underground. Also the bar is excellent and it seems a shame to be located in this hotel. Many of the staff have worked there for over 25 years and this shows. Excellent service and great cocktails such as a Black Dahlia. Very reasonable prices too.

Would never stay here again unless rooms are refitted. Would definatley drink at the bar again.

I am staying at this hotel. The lobby area is nice and the rooms are nice. The rooms are clean and spacious. I ate breakfast in the restaurant and the food was good. A little pricey but in keeping with the hotel. The location is great. Right downtown Los Angeles and convenient to a lot of things. I recommend this hotel if you are in Los Angeles.

Historical hotel with great lobby and other nice places, but rooms need to be upgrade, specially the bathrooms.
When we arrive they didn't have a room with 2 beds for 3 adults as we have booked. They tried to give us a small room where they intended to put an extra bed. Only because we said it was impossible to accept a room like that they tound a room something bigger where they put the extra bed. They give us de access to the internet for free but it was not a good way to solve the problem. Parking very expensive.
