“Wonderful oasis of peace in hustle and bustle of L.A.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Finishing up a roadtrip through California, we stayed at the Petit Ermitage in West Hollywood for two nights. It is an absolutely wonderful hotel, very well situated between Sunset Blvd and Santa Monica Blvd, in a nice quiet neighbourhood. On the outside, one might describe it as unassuming. However, looks are deceiving; on the inside this hotel has a tastefully styled, designed and decorated atmosphere. Especially the artwork along the hallways is impressive and shows the excellent taste of the owners.

While our car was parked by the valet, we were impeccably assisted by the valet and by the hotel desk clerk. We had booked a junior suite, and this turned out to be a very nice and pretty large room looking out over the quiet street in front of the hotel. Again, styling was very much to our tastes, and both the bedroom and bathroom were absolutely, spotlessly clean. The bed was excellent, and without even the slightest noise from either the street or from inside the hotel, we slept like a baby.

When staying at the Petit Ermitage, a special mention has to be given to the wonderful private rooftop club. It is an absolute joy to visit. My wife and I settled on the cabana with a great view of the hills, and enjoyed some perfectly made cocktails served by very professional servers, before also enjoying a perfect diner in the rooftop restaurant area. In fact, diner was so enjoyable that we had diner there for both nights we stayed. Breakfast too was excellent: great coffee and delicious fresh food.

Staying at the Petit Ermitage was an absolute joy, and my wife and I would have no hesitations in staying here again. Even in the wonderful and huge city of Los Angeles with plenty of places to stay, a hotel like the petit Ermitage is an absolute gem. Highly recommended!

This is a terrific hotel if you're looking for a boutique hotel that will give you an experience you will always remember. It is pricey, and was a splurge for me. I crossed my fingers that it would not disappoint, and it did not! The hotel is so unique. It has a totally bohemian style. It is like a Tim Burton circus. This hotel is not for you if you are uptight or very conservative in your views. It has a great, dark sense of humor. European (topless) pool, intimacy kits in the bedrooms, abstract drawings in the stairwell of mouths popping pills. It is very tastefully executed, but not for those whose idea of a perfect hotel experience is the Ritz Carleton. Absolutely DO NOT leave this hotel without having dinner in the rooftop restaurant. The atmosphere is georgeous, and the food and drink were literally the best I have ever had...anywhere. It was so unique, and perfectly prepared. The staff is so friendly and accomodating. The only disappointment for me is that photography is prohibited anywhere in the hotel....I would have loved to get pictures of all the details. Not sure if they do this because of celebs or the European pool, but they say it's because of all the antique pieces of art (yeah right). You won't regret staying here!

Phenomenal dinner options in one of the coolest rooftop lounges LA has to offer. The Tangine du Jour was incredible, as were the cocktails and ambiance for our party of four. Can't recommend a more unique date in the city!

Great location in Beverly Hills/West Hollywood, this hotel is a little gem!

The rooms are large and nicely decorated, and the private rooftop bar is just amazing! We had a really top notch service and I'd seriously recommend this place.

The only thing I am not happy about is the $36 overnight fee parking, which adds a lot to the room price and is a bit of a rip off. In a country where everyone drives, they should clearly state this hidden charge.

We spent 5 nights at the Petit Ermitage in September 2013 and had the most amazing time. Our suite was fabulous, the food was wonderful and the drinks and service second to none.
I think sitting with a cocktail in the rooftop pool may be one of the best memories I have - can't reccommend this highly enough, we even got engaged here making it even more special! Can't wait to go back.

I recently stayed here with my sisters when they came to Los Angeles for a weekend. The staff were very friendly and we had a great time at the rooftop restaurant/pool area. What a gorgeous little space to get away for a bit. The only downside was that we had a hotel room with a king size bed and a pull out couch. The pull out couch was very uncomfortable. We made it work for the weekend, but probably wouldn't choose a room like that again.
