I traveled to the area for a meeting in Beverly Hills. The Carlyle Inn was by far the least expensive hotel in the area for the quality, and it was conveniently located. It's not a high-end, boutique hotel - not even remotely - but the room was spacious and clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the free breakfast was tasty. FYI, parking is located under the building.

I nearly drove by the place - the pictures for some reason made me think it was not along a street with random storefronts, but off on its own. And the description made me think they had a parking lot, in the same way that... a hotel has a parking lot. But this is more that they had some space near their entrance, so they decided to make some really cramped parking. Then under the building there is a VERY narrow entrance/driveway down to underground parking... also really small.
If you are going to be driving to this place, drive something compact.
There did seem to be a large parking garage a block away, at the end of the questionable alley (which was all torn up, so don't have a low rider either) behind the place.

It talks about walking distance and local shops, but it doesn't really seem like the sort of area I would want to just chill out walking around - more like hey, drive somewhere else.

The rooms were large and modern, and the wireless worked. Good enough for me, and the price wasn't too bad overall.

I wish they had room service.

Great hotel, great location! Staff treated me great! The GM Denise runs a fantastic hotel! When staying in Los Angeles you will not be disappointed with this hotel. Very close to Beverly Hills! Can not say any thing bad about my stay or hotel!

Room Tip: They all seem to be great rooms!

This small hotel is an excellent value. Walking distance to Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. Rooms are comfortable--50's type decor with large updated bathrooms. Great breakfast, convenient on-site self parking, and nice outdoor sitting area. Really an excellent value for this good neighborhood in LA. Westside, Pico-Robertson.

Everything about this place looked like a dressed-up motel from the 80s. Hideous brochures jump out at you as you enter the lobby, screaming "budget motel". Could not get a glass from anyone so had to drink out of the cotton ball container from the bathroom since the disgusting plastic cups were cheaper than what I take camping. Had to go to the front desk to get a wine opener. Really??? The plastic wine opener with the hotel logo is too valuable to leave in the rooms? It has to be under guard at the front desk, and we have to fetch it even though we paid over $250 for the room?? Lastly the wifi was generously free, but too weak to reach my room. I had moments of connection, but as quick as it came that's how quick it would disappear. Used three different computer devices all resulting in the same problem. For $250 a night this was truly subpar.

The Carlyle Inn in Los Angeles has been and will be my place to stay while having treatments at Cedars-Sinai medical center for the next few months. The staff is courtesy and professional. Rooms clean and always plenty of amenities.

Small, quiet, immaculate, lovely staff, comfortable bed, lots of hot water, parking...what more could anyone want. Breakfast is standard fare, but quickly replenished and dining room is fairly good size. In warm weather doors to courtyard are open, making for a very pleasant environment. We go to LA to visit parents who are just 5 minutes away, so this is a great find for us and will be our regular place to stay on future visits.
