perfect location and a bargain for what you get. Just for balance, the downside: firstly, spiders and ants are beneficials and I would not approve regular spraying with toxic chemicals to suit Tastebuds 14 or any other visiting complaint. However, the parking spaces are tight (just have to be careful), the hot water does take a few minutes to come on, it would be nice if they had a breakfast option (maybe croissants and tea in a basket), and a couple of bath-robes in the closet. But it is a delightful, quaint, and special spot, well worth the price. And West Hollywood is the best part of LA.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Charlie provides exclusive luxurious accommodations to a worldwide clientele, whilst preserving the natural and historical beauty of the property's grounds. The landmark upon which The Charlie resides today was first built & established in 1924 by the Ruth Gordon family. Word has it that numerous movie star legends have roamed these grounds in the past, living out their glorious days to the fullest! Charlie Chaplin, Marilyn Monroe, and Gloria Swanson are only a few of such legends to name, to whom at one point or another The Charlie grounds were believed to have been a home! In 2002, threatened by re-development, this historical landmark was acquired by Menachem Treivush and has since undergone a multi-million dollar renovation. By carefully preserving historically-scrutinizing details, incorporating the technology of today, and dedicating careful attention to detail, Mr. Treivush has rapidly built up The Charlie into the unique establishment that it is today! Since re-opening to the public in 2008, The Charlie has become known as The Hidden Gem of the legendary West Hollywood! ... more less
