I don't normally write reviews, despite the fact that I read them and take them seriously -free rider syndrome. However, I had to take a few minutes to give the Petit Ermitage Hotel its due credit. LA is a huge county with many cities and neighborhoods. It's easy to feel a bit consumed by such a large environment.
This hotel was perfect, because it made me feel as if I was staying at a friend's house or in my own apartment rather than the anonymous feeling one gets when staying in a sterile big box hotel. The hotel is situated on a very residential street, yet it's just a 5 minute walk to the lively restaurants and bars of West Hollywood. Additionally, assuming you have a rental car, the hotel's location offers easy access to rest of the region -drive 5 minutes east to Hollywood, 5 minutes west to Beverly Hills, 15 minutes west to Westwood/UCLA, 30 minutes west to Santa Monica. You really could not asked to be more perfectly situated for foot and car exploring. Or, if you're looking for a place just to lounge... they've got you covered. The rooftop bar, pool, cabana areas are small but perfect for spending a relaxing afternoon. I enjoyed spending a couple days of my vacation without ever getting into a car. The front desk and rooftop staff were attentive, well trained, had amazing manners, and not to mention easy on the eyes. You simply can't go wrong with a stay here, particularly if you get a good rate. I read some stories of folks spending in excess of $400/night for a stay. I can't quite say that I would be willing to pay that level for this property, but about half of that is completely appropriate and reasonable -depending on the season and demand. If you are person that wants a full service hotel and resort experience, you may be more inclinded to check out the Beverly Hilton, Beverly Hills Hotel, or Four Seasons Beverly Hills. However, if you want a super comfortable place to stay that is close to all of the action, then you are in good hands here.
