“Enchanted garden in WeHo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

I've stayed at the Sunset Marquis twice already and I look forward to getting back! The Villas are extremely spacious and spotless, the pool villa is quiet, the food is exquisive and the staff is extremely attentive. I've searched in LA for many years to find a classy hotel with unpretentious and skilled staff, providing a homey feeling. I've now found it, thank you!

Room Tip: Ask for a Villa which balcony is not overlooking La Cienega

I loved this hotel. It's expensive but worth it. Steeped in rock n roll history with lots to look at. We had one of the signature bungalows for three nights which was set in a wooded area lit with fairy lights at night, quite magical. The bed was without doubt the most comfortable I have ever slept in and I wanted to take the pillows home ( but resisted!) Bathrooms superb with huge bath and enormous rainshower.
Staff were mostly very good. They are a bit full on with the old expectation of tipping and one night we got chased halfway back to our bungalow by a member of the bar staff who reminded us that we had 'forgotten to add a gratuity'.
Pool areas are nice and there is an air of opulence without the stuffiness that you sometimes get in upmarket hotels. Would have liked to have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Not alot more for the bungalows if you take advantage of the upgrade offer in advance, and these are...

Location: excellent, in West Hollywood, convenient for restaurants, Beverly Hills, Hollywood/ Sunset boulevards, Santa Monica

Rooms: spacious, with super-comfy beds, well-stocked minibar, fridge

Amenities: swimming pool (though not too big) with a very nice deck/ area around; tropical garden

Restaurants/ bars: restaurant is excellent (though a bit over-priced - breakfast for 2 can set you off by $100) - great choice of buffet/ a la carte; trendy bar, though its reputation to be a celebrities magnet is definitely overclaimed

Staff: very friendly, helpful and welcoming

Mood: cool, relaxed and unpretentious

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the 2nd floor (eg 233) - instead of swimming pool views you may get a view over relat...

Staying here right now! Nice one bedroom suite although view is of a roof too, slightly shabby carpet and not as luxurious as the price would warrant. Corridors are dark and gloomy. We have had mixed experiences with the staff, Elaine the concierge is incredible! Found reception staff on check in uninterested, I actually stood at the desk a few minutes without being noticed although it was quite late! Valet brought my bags to the room but my husband who checked in an hour earlier wasn't offered help with luggage.
Biggest letdown for me is no coffee/tea making facilities in the room (although we have now been provided with a kettle) room service coffee isn't good and a $15 charge to set up a tea service (makings and kettle) each time is a little over the top, I have my own tea bags so $15 for milk seems excessive!
Pool areas are beautiful, breakfast in the restaurant was nice if a little too pricey for our budget I'd recommend Mels Diner at the top of the road for anyone not on a "Rock Star" budget!

This was a great property as far as location and potential. Rooms were large and clean with separate living space, staff was great, cool intimate bar, beautiful restaurant and complimentary partnership with equinox gym(huge perk that would probably be the reason I went back). Restaurant food was amazing but extremely expensive (more than four seasons or ritz carlton) with slow slow slow service! We waited 1 hour and 45 minutes for our entrees and there were only two other tables filled in the restaurant. Internet service did not work well in room. Refrigerator was broken. Bed extremely comfortable!! Phone in main area broken.

Room Tip: stay away from elevators...some rooms are right next to elevator door.

Great location and friendly staff. Large, comfortable rooms and beautiful property. Mixed customer service training - some employees were great and some really lacked basic social filters. For instance: when our party was served dinner an hour and 40 minutes after ordering and the server warned us 20% gratuity had already been added. Or, when we grabbed drinks in the bar a waiter dropped our check, after the first order , and said, "how are you going to pay for this?" - without asking if we wanted something more. Housekeeping was either great or average and our mini bar fridge was broken the whole time even though it was restocked once. Visit was fine - but I expected better service.

We stayed at the Sunset Marquis in Sept 2012 and having read the reviews were really excited. The hotel didn't disappoint. It was smaller than I had imagined (not a bad thing), the decor was super-modern and all the staff very professional - from the reception staff to the valet parkers they were all extremely efficient.
The location is brilliant - a very short was to Sunset Boulevard and the bars/restaurants there (note you will still need a car to explore the rest of LA).

The hotel definitely has a rock vibe - the walls show signed photos from major artists who have stayed there, guitars hanging, cool art etc.

After reading TripAdvisor reviews before going we were looking forward to some celebrity spotting and it didn't disappoint!

Although pricier than what we would usually pick, I would definitely stay here again - well worth the money.

Room Tip: The villas looked amazing - if you can afford.
