“Classic Hollywood”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

This is the quintessential Classic Hollywood Hotel. You have to have reservation in the restaurant or be staying there to even go in after dark. The lunch menu is pricy but you get what you pay for. It's an experience just walking in let alone sitting in the lobby or having a meal there.

“Terrible service, really disgusting.”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

I was thrilled to get the chance to go for a quick bite and cocktails at such an old hollywood institution. We were seated relatively swiftly inside, where it was freezing, we asked to have the air turned down, our server said he would check on this, yet we never heard back. We ordered cocktails, which took 45 mins to arrive AFTER we'd eaten, this was apparently due to a 'new system' at the bar. To be completely honest the guy serving us seemed like he was on drugs, asking the same questions twice, forgetting things and slurring his words. I expected the place to be perfect, but there were wires, and unused extension cords all over the place.
To top it all off, after we finished we wandered outside to look of somewhere to smoke, but we were shouted down by the hostess before we managed to leave the top step to outside, "Where do you think you're going" she exclaimed, literally speaking to us like dirt on the floor, which considering we'd just spent $150 on cocktails & snacks wasn't appropriate. She then continued in her unprofessional manner to direct us elsewhere, I'm not sure if she thought we'd wandered in off the street, or if she was just rude, but I've never been spoken to in such a manner. So much so that I enquired as to her name from our doped up server, it was Grace - How ironic, as she was one of the most graceless women I've ever happened upon.
A huge disappointment, and what I consider to be an embarrassment for such a reputable establishment.

“wear sunglasses”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

you will need your sunglasses to blend in and to keep the glare of golden skin and shinny clothing from blinding you, as will the bill, the price of beauty, or at least being in its glow. Well worth it.
Oh yes, dress like you do not care, but wear daddys gold Rolex
