After reading the other reviews, I wonder if I am having an out of body experience. My first room was so small, albeit with a wonderful view, that I, literally, could not unpack my suitcase, unless I wanted to stack my belongings on the bed and snuggle with them all night. After asking to see another room I guess my Hollywood contract has been ripped up as I am now staying in the Hollywood Mortician King, with a tiny window overlooking an air compressor, brown wallpaper and no counter for the sink. I can actually crawl out my window and lounge on a sooty roof. If this hotel is old Hollywood Glamour then this is the backlot, or the old prop room, or where they keep the extras. Lovely and friendly staff, however this is more Barton Fink then Betty Davis.

Room Tip: Stay away from the fifth floor.

The STH is my personal favorite in Los Angeles, and I always stay here when visiting for work or pleasure. Today I focus on the morning breakfast which is superb. Angel, Derric and Victoria always take extra special care of me, and I appreciate their efforts tremendously. They are friendly, attentive, and professional. I can always count on these guys to make my stay a solidly wonderful experience each and every time. Thanks, guys!

Room Tip: If you can swing a junior suite, go for it. The gracefully arching floor-to-ceiling windows beautif...

This was the perfect place to stay after an eleven hour flight from the UK. There was an instant sense of the history of the hotel and the glamour of golden age Hollywood. All of the staff members were incredibly welcoming and did their best to make us comfortable.

Our double room was spacious and relaxing, with a plush bathroom and a shower that didn’t leak out onto the floor (almost a first for hotel showers).

The pool was small; definitely a pool designed to be sat by rather than to be used, so that wasn’t a problem at all. Cocktails on the terrace by the pool as the sun set over the city came pretty close to perfection.

Finally – the restaurant. The food and service were exquisite but the restaurant was very dark. This gave it a cosy, intimate feeling and we had a great evening. The truffle mac and cheese went down very well.

Absolute old school glamour! Sunset Tower is as chic and gorgeous as you could imagine but, unlike many alternatives, has no pretenses and doesn't feel overly youthful. I adored my large suite and the dusky hallways that brought to mind Raymond Chandler novels. I especially loved the staff who made me feel as comfortable in the hotel AND the sophisticated Tower Bar as any of the celebrities that frequent it.

We adored everything about this hotel. It has the vintage Hollywood touches but is updated perfectly with modern marble bathrooms, very comfortable beds and luxurious linens. The windows in the room open up so you can feel the breeze. Breakfast was awesome, terrace and pool area are heaven, Tower Bar is the perfect hangout spot. We even used the little gym and it was great for what we needed with nice equipment (though the hallway to get there is kind of smelly and old). Service was fantastic in all areas. Couldn't have been happier with our choice to stay here and can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Wouldn't recommend room with 2 twin beds unless absolutely necessary - there are only 2 and they...

Beautiful hotel in a fantastic location with a wonderful & attentive staff. The classic beauty of the bar-restaurant and the poolside lounge exceeded expectations. Our large room was equally as impressive and a great value. Loved its history as well. Highly recommend!!
