“Great hotel. Just off Sunset. Friendly staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

This is the second time we have stayed at The London. This time we were traveling on business and staying for 3 nights.

Arrival/Check In is extremely straight forward. Reception staff are always very friendly.

On both occasions we have opted to stay in the Veranda Suite. These are located on the 2nd floor and huge and have a great terrace that over looks either the city or the side street. The bathroom is massive, with bath and walkin shower with massage and rain showers. The bed is super king size and there is a lounge area.

Breakfast was included in our booking. It is continental style with coffee/tea/juice, salmon, hams, cheeses, breads, fruit, cereals etc. All served as a buffet. For extra you can order food from the menu. Eggs, bacon etc.

The hotel is located just off of Sunset Strip. You can walk to the Beverly Center within 15 mins. Walk to Santa Monica Blvd within 5 mins.

There is a pool/bar on the rooftop. Very cool on a sunny day in LA.

The bar is great as are the bartenders. We have eaten in the restaurant on a number of occasions and although pricey the food is great and very fresh.

Highly recommend. We will definitely be staying there again when we are next in LA.

Room Tip: Rooms have balconies. Ask for one facing the cityview.

This hotel is by far the best hotel I have stayed at in a very long time. From check in to check out, it's perfect.
Our room (705) was very large and beautifully designed with a huge bathroom. The breakfast is fantastic and Marina greets you with a lovely smile each morning. The roof top pool was very nice and even though it was very busy when we went up, still very quiet. Sarah from the concierge desk made some wonderful restaurant selections for us. I can't think of 1 think that they can improve on, and I can always find something not to my liking. Even the location is perfect, it says West Hollywood but it's literally a block to Beverly Hills with lots of dining options all around. I look forward to our next trip to LA so I can stay at the London again.

Room Tip: We asked for high floor and we got a lovely room on 7th floor. (705)

Had the chance to experience the bar scene at The London and was not disappointed. The scene is one where you always expect to see a B List actor or an occasional A Lister. The night I was there the scene was rather quiet expect for an actor from Law and Order-- he had one of those faces you recognize but can't recall fast enough to say "Hey, I know you from . . ."

The mixologist-- that's what they are called in Gordon Ramsey's great world-- was a very personable and knowledgable guy named Grafton. He knew his craft well and was there when needed and available when needed. The guy is very professional and his height and good looks are a great opening to the experience.

If you are in the area, stop in. The place is not to be missed.

So quiet and peaceful, the comfortable bed was heaven. It’s nice have such calm tranquility in a hotel room yet when stepping out of the elevator, you are apart of it all. Famed ‘Viper Room’ is just across the parking lot and ‘Whisky A Go Go’ is just across the street.

Part of me wants to camp in the lobby instead of the balcony, and just watch the people go by. Or even dogs, as they are welcome too. Many celebs spotted during my 2 day stay.

I adored the Keurig in my room, as much as the free wifi and delicious food by a culinary team hand picked by Gordon Ramsay {your choice of cafes, restaurants or even in-room dining}.

From the front desk, to the restaurant, gift shop, bell men, and valet staff., we were treated with courtesy and kindness by one and all. We were disappointed that the rooftop pool and fitness center were occupied by a film crew during most of our stay. However, upon mentioning this, our room rate was reduced. The breakfast buffet was great, dinner in Gordon Ramsey's restaurant was delicious (service was a little slow, but respectfully so.) We would stay here again.

High end venue but low end value in terms of location, exorbitant parking rates, slow service and pricey accommodation. However, it's a good place to bump into Hollywood celebrities. If that is something that you came to Hollywood for. Met a few during our stay. but I don't think I'll choose this place again.

We love staying ai the London when in LA ,location is perfect and the staff are excellent .
The rear rooms are noisey because of the school and fire trucks and the smoke from people smoking on their terraces is awful.
The main gripe is--the Hotel is tired -it needs a make over -furniture is worn and threadbare and walls are stained and marked.
After two weeks in Asian hotels which are like palaces the contrast is very marked.
Breakfast while free is a bit spartan.
Bar service is excellent and the cocktails first class.
Overall it is still a great place to stay

Room Tip: avoid rooms facing the school
