We almost didn't stay at the Chateau because of the mixed review on this website and boy am I glad we did!!!
This hotel is like no other I have ever stayed in. It's so unique, and has a magical cool vibe about it.
We stayed in a cottage - so I cannot comment on the rooms but it was so CUTE!!! It had bags of charm and really felt like stepping back to the 60's when you walked through the front door. For two days we had our own house in LA, which rocked and the private entrance on Sunset Blvd felt very special!!! The decor is authentic but they must be careful to not cross the boundaries into shabby - for example our bath was a little chipped and so were the tiles but this didn't really bother me and the Kiehls items more than made up for it. The bathrooms and bedrooms were pretty small though!
I love attention to detail and the cottages so have this - they even left ice cubes in the freezer in the kitchen. The tea lights to burn in the bedroom smell amazing, and there's a full size candle in the mini bar which is now in my bedroom at home.
You can hear the street from the cottages at times though because of the windows being from the 60's and the volume of traffic outside....
Unless you are staying in the hotel, or are a somebody getting on the patio to dine or drink can be tricky so being whisked ahead of wannabes felt very good :-) the food was nice and service pretty good, we also dined at Bar Marmont which was lovely too.
Within seconds of checking in we saw A list celebrities, and this continued for our two night stay.
The pool is rather small but still in a lovely secluded spot not far from the cottages, and the walk to the cottage from the hotel at night is very pretty with fairly lights etc...
The check in staff were lovely and we felt very welcome. Both nights we were in when the turn down maids came, however we asked for them to come back later which they never did which was a little poor.
The free wi-fi is fab and was nice to have.
This hotel isn't plush or grand it's edgy and cool. So if you want the latter this is for you. I would go again in a heartbeat!
