We stayed at the London for two nights before our cruise out of the Port of Los Angeles. We have friends in the LA area and we wanted to stay in West Hollywood (and my husband likes boutique hotels) so he chose the London.
With some boutique hotels you never know what to expect, small rooms, stuck up staff, etc.. so i went with reservations. I was never disappointed.
We missed the hotel the first time we drove by it because it is very unassuming and nestled on the side. We valet parked our car since that was the only parking available. It was a bit expensive ($32.00) but they always had our car ready you just had to call down before you left your room and it was waiting.
We checked in at around 1pm but our room wasn't ready. So they gave us a key that accessed the pool on the roof and told us they would call us when it was ready. We instead opted to walk down Sunset Blvd and have lunch. On our way back to the hotel after lunch they called and said the room was ready, (it was about 2-2:30)
The bellman took our things and led us to the room. He was very helpful with suggestions for things to do and was very helpful. The room was gorgeous! Huge comfy bed with a lounge sectional in front of it. We also had a sliding glass door to a balcony that overlooked LA, beautiful. The bathroom was bigger than some bedrooms I've lived in with a separate two nozzeled shower and huge 2 person tub.
Lighting in the room was very effective. You could control all aspects of the lights to dim or just highlight the walls, it was perfect.
On the rooftop was the pool with cabanas and in another section a smallish gym. The gym wasn't that great so I didn't work out there. We did lounge by the pool both days and had lunch from the hotel's service. The kabobs were delicious and the salads very satifying.
The menu system on the TV was a bit clunky but it seemed to be what all the hotels in the area were using.
There was a minibar station in the room with a sink and several types of glasses so we could entertain in the room.
All in all it was a perfect start to our vacation and we would probably not stay anywhere else when we go back. It was very close to all the clubs on Santa Monica Blvd so you didn't even need to drive anywhere.
