Scale of 90-100
Within a short walk of the center of West Hollywood’s nightlife on Santa Monica Boulevard, this 23-room property combines a century-old bungalow with a new building tucked discreetly behind it. Public spaces include a compact lobby-lounge, a sunny roof terrace (some room rates include a complimentary rooftop picnic) and the cozy Living Room, where small continental breakfast buffets are served each morning (savory items and proteins are available via room service). There is no bar or restaurant. Each room is individually decorated. Our airy One Bedroom Suite came with wood floors, a white-marble bath, a bright corner living room, a furnished terrace with views of the Century City skyline beyond the West Hollywood rooftops and a bedroom with a gas fireplace. The youthful staff is friendly and housekeeping conscientious. This is not a grand luxury hotel like our other properties in town; instead, it’s a charming, stylish and very comfortable guesthouse.

The location central to West Hollywood restaurants and nightlife; the stylish décor; the commendable housekeeping staff; the sunny roof terrace; our spacious, airy accommodations; the friendly staff; the comfortable main lounge.
The complimentary continental breakfast buffet had few savory items; the sad beverage selection in the complimentary minibar; the lack of newspapers.
Good to Know
The honor bar mentioned (as of this writing) on the hotel’s website no longer exists, which means you must go outside the hotel for an alcoholic beverage; hot breakfast dishes are available via room service.
