“Unique treat, Quiet Side Street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

This is a surprising boutique hotel that is a couple of blocks off Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood. The location is actually discreet but strategic, only a few blocks from Beverly Hills shopping, restaurants and other attractions, but also in quite a posh, interesting neighborhood itself. The lobby is European style; small and interesting. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The room was very comfortable and eclectically decorated. The real attraction of this hotel, however, is on the fourth floor rooftop. The bar, restaurant, pool and fire pit area atop the hotel is a wonder to behold in every way. Very romantic. Beautiful views. The food is top notch and the ambiance at the bar is excellent. I had lunch and dinner there and was completely captivated by the lay out. You will remember this visit for a long time.

Room Tip: The fourth floor gives a nice view and gives entry to the rooftop amenities that make this hotel rea...

Stayed here for 2 nights on way back from Australia and had great time. Beautiful, quirky decor and stunning rooftop pool and bar area that's fantastic for an evening drink. Plus, it's tucked away on a quiet residential street but still only 5 minutes walk from Sunset and Santa Monica Boulevards. Would definitely stay again

Love this hotel...we were on our honeymoon and had just driven back from Vegas - so it was so nice to walk into a hotel that showed a bit of interest! The young girl and gentlemen behind the desk were lovely - the room was large and comfy - I think Europeans will find the rooms almost like a slightly sparse older european style - but they are so cosy with the fireplace and balcony.

We had dinner on the roof - which was outside, we had a mini 'tent' all to ourselves, decorated with fairy lights and candles - just heaven. The next day we chilled by the pool and a celeb was even having a photo shoot. The only 1 negative about the whole stay I would say was that the owner/manager came out by the pool whilst we were there and was telling staff off about the beds - we didnt love this, but it was a minor thing.

The location was great for us - north of the hotel are loads of restaurants - The Viper Room, Nobu etc - so we loved it! Thoroughly recommend - Thanks for making the end of our honeymoon x Oh and the cookies are the best!

Room Tip: We had a king size bed which was huge

Small property, quirky location, great rooftop. Stayed at the Chamberlain a few weeks back but this property ha a better offer so thought I would try. Was pleased with the choice. The Bathroom even had Waterworks faucets in place, nice water pressure too, will stay again.

My girlfriend booked this hotel for a romantic escape when i arrived in Los Angeles, and it was spot on! Petit Ermitage is very cosy. We had a superior room, large, with a king size bed and a lounge area. It was of course very clean and we had a lot of little nice touches. Bed was very comfortable. The hotel itself is nicely decorated, quiet sexy and glamourous! The fourth floor is a must, with the restaurant area (very good breakfast) and the pool area. The swimmining -pool is enjoyable, being warm (swmming in january overlooking LA will satay in my memory for long!). You got a perfect view of the whole Los Angeles chilling onto the large sofa. I definitly recommend Petit Ermitage for a little bit of romance, you can feel love all around...

Our booking was not found until the next day even after I had conformation from Blackberry Travel. The room was a decent size but the smell of food was a bit too much to bear as it had a small kitchen in the room. The hotel parking cost of USD30 per day was a bit too much and should be included.
The restaurant on the roof was fabulous.
What made this hotel was the staff. They went right out of their way to assist.

Ahhh! What a delicious find! The heart of the elegant French countryside in the midst of West Hollywood has been discovered in the Petit Ermitage. So many hand painted touches even on the power poles outside and the piano in the friendly bar upstairs. It has a lovely restaurant on
the roof, inside & outside in the gardens, not to mention a pool. The roof top view is lovely day ornight. The service was out of this world....your every need attended to. They even have a "Happiness Liason", Grant, who makes certain that you go about your time spent there in perennial bliss.
