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!
