“Sunset Tower Hotel Stay August 2012”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

We stayed at the Sunset Tower Hotel again in August 2012, and was treated so well by the Hotel Staff. It is a "home" in LA. We stayed in a lovely junior suite, which was comfortable and well furnished with a spectacular view of West LA. over looking the pool and terrace.

Tim Cunningham is a pleasant well organized Manager, who is warm and engaging. Once again we loved eating breakfast on the terrace, where we were always greeted with cheer and served well by Angel.

Room Tip: Beautiful view of the pool and West LA.

This hotel is an iconic Hollywood landmark. The art deco decor is unique and charming, and the
location is tough to beat. The staff is helpful and friendly. Although the rooms are small, they are well-appointed and many have good views. While the hotel is not small, it often feels like a boutique given the attention to detail and attentive service.

We would definitely stay here again. The location was excellent, with great views, nice terrace for breakfast and a very well equipped gym. It wasn't noisy and the staff were super helpful. Although there was a mix-up re. our car rental.

I would also recommend the bar and restaurant - excellent food and cocktails!

Room Tip: I'd pay a bit extra and go for one of the larger rooms as higher up and so better views of LA

Once in a while you stay someplace and there is someone that stands out..and gives you the 'lay of the land' and makes you feel comfortable. Ishmael is that person at Sunset Towerr. He's awesome. Always a smile, always a friendly face..and not the fake "Welcome to Sunset Tower..." kind of greeting. I would say, my stay was better because of Ishmael.

Room Tip: the street side is louder than pool side. I like seeing the street and am a good sleeper so it didn...

This hotel just gets better and better. It's a great location with terrific views of LA and has beautiful decor. The staff is professional, friendly, and continually involved in making your stay a good one. Tim -- the Guest Ambassador -- does everything he can to ensure things run smoothly for guests. The restaurants have delicious food and and are beautiful spaces. Breakfast at The Terrace is impossible to beat. From the food to the tranquil setting to the staff, it's wonderful in every way. Angel, who works breakfast at The Terrace, knows his guests' favorites, greets them with a welcoming smile, and works hard to make sure they're well taken care of. He makes sure to start your day right. In short, this hotel gets everything right!

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was amazing. I have stayed in many hotels over the years and this has been my favourite so far. The staff here are incredible. Drew, Max and Justin in particular were so helpful and friendly they are definitely way above average!
The rooms are a good size and well equipped. The pool area is really nice. The continental breakfast was delicious. We also ate dinner one night and it was very good too. We were travelling with our 1 year old and although he was the only toddler in the hotel, all efforts were made to make him comfortable. Good solid crib was supplied. The history and the atmosphere of the hotel also add to the awesomeness of this hotel. I will tell all my friends to stay here!

My recent stay at The Sunset Tower Hotel was extremely pleasurable. A colleague and I could not help but remark as to how wonderful was the staff, how very considerate, and how our overall experience was completely and utterly satisfying. I would recommend the hotel highly. Continental breakfast daily by the pool was complemented by a stunning view of Los Angeles, sparkling in morning sunshine. If I were a local I'd take out-of-towners here for breakfast--surely one of LA's great spots. One expects, perhaps unfairly, some measure of pretentiousness in such a hip LA establishment--I was happily surprised by the opposite: a uniform lack of pretension in the staff. Highly recommended.
