“No better than average”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

I think the problem I had with this place is it's trying too hard to be "cool". Everything in the room was very minimal, which while it might look nice, it's just not that useable.

The staff at check-in were friendly, whereas the staff in the bar were slow and unfriendly. So, the staff balance out as average.

All told, for the cost, this place did absolutely nothing above what I would expect. It was really the very definition of average.

Sam Luvs Stark! That is the true acronym for the SLS brand. I had finally stayed here after frequently eating at the SLS Hotel restaurant (not the Baazar) and enjoying their crowded bar lounge. My favorite is their Philly cheese steak puff tapas. I have referred several friends here because it is very unique, lively, and interesting with Philip Stark's artistic vision, a museum like store, and Lotta of eye candy dessert bar. The hotel room side is located on the calm and quiet right side building structure, where the library lounge area sits. The rooms are very modern and cleverly disguise Stark's artistic designs from the open bird cage on the iron board with the see escaped bird, to the settle face knobs in the hotel room. The TV is inside the glass mirror fireplace. The design of their glass Pierre bottle says a lot about their attention to detail. The bed was comfortable and there are lots of mirrors throughout the room and bathroom, which is convenient to view your outfits. I didn't care for the huge pedestal tub shower, somewhat off??? No fabulous views due to residential location. Valet parking is very steep, but the residential parking nearby is mostly permitted, with limited 2 hour parking during business hours. You are lucky to find overnite parking, but look at the residential parking signs because the parking ticket is even more costly. The rooftop pool area is a must see, and you should get there early as access is included as a hotel guest, grab your desired lounge chair seating - first come first serve. There is also lots of celebrity spotting here too. The rooms are quite pricey, as you are in Beverly Hills, but the experience is uniquely memorable.

Only spent 1 night at the SLS. It has a great vibe at the bar and restaurant but the rooms themselves are quite small. The are modern and minimalistic but are overcompensating for their small size.

Quite expensive for what you get. Try the Sheraton Beverly Hills for better value for a short stay.

Room Tip: Try a different hotel

Great food and chill out area. Luckily enough this was the hotel I had my wedding reception in and it was FANTASTIC. Cool, trendy and smart. Rooms were fantastic and the scene is vibrant. If you are in LA go to this hotel - it is worth every penny. Close to the Beverly Centre and around the corner from some of the best restaurants in LA.

Stayed here a week on business, and I found the SLS Hotel quite excellent. I went once to dine at the restaurant (Bazaar) and it was terrific as well. The rooms are interesting, warm, and beautifully designed. Only negative I'd point out is that the breakfast is quite expensive, but the hotel is very nice overall.

Overall: Great hotel and completely worth the price. The hotel is in a great area close to Weho which is what we wanted, the rooms were really nice, a little older so there was some wear and tear but overall clean and very comfortable. What really made the trip was the staff. Polite, always helpful and going out of there way. I wish all Starwoods had staff like this place. I will undoubtedly stay here in LA when I go back.

Pros: The staff were great, when we checked in I wanted to switch to double beds and they needed to get a room ready so I had to wait about 20 minutes, they offered to buy me a drink at the bar while I waited and gave me some waters, then when I got to the room they had left some more drinks for my friends and I. Every day we had breakfast at The Table, the staff there was also amazing, very kind and helpful. Not to mention the food was great.

Cons: The room had a weird view out to a parking lot and I could tell the room was a little older. There are a lot of mirrors and it was very clean so I was more than okay with it. The immediate surrounding area is just okay, you need to walk a little bit or take a short cab to anything but it's LA so that isn't uncommon.

I didn't stay in the hotel but the bar was amazing. I loved the atmosphere and creative twists on classic drinks and appetizers. Fun place to share a bunch of plates and everything was very flavorful and well executed. Would go back again and would recommend to anyone visiting LA.
