Lovely quiet, clean, well-decorated hotel very close (10-15 min walk) from Melrose and right next to The Grove shopping center where there are a ton of dining options. There's also a really good donut/coffee shop a two minute walk away. We liked the hotel's central location and that we could get to Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, etc very quickly. Hotel is pet-friendly for $150 a stay. Valet parking only, around $50 a day. The menu at the restaurant was kind of limited but food and service was really good, and the fact that you can have your pup with you (at an outside table) was really nice. There are not a lot of grassy areas around for pet relief, unfortunately, just some small spots around the parking lot. The Grove is very pet-friendly, though. Hotel had a small pool but didn't use it. Overall, would definitely stay again!

Room floor was very dirty, front desk said they would tell housekeeping, nothing was done. My child slipped and fell twice in the slippery shower, again nothing was done. In the suite there was one remote for two tv’s, remote didn’t work so we couldn’t even use the tv’s. Valet wasn’t available 24/7 as advertised so we had to self park yet had to pay for valet. Staff was rude at check in. At check out was told that valet fee would be waived due to all of the troubles we had, they said they couldn’t print my invoice to confirm this due to technical issues. When they emailed me of course it wasn’t waived. Tried to follow up, was told a manager would call in 30 mins, it’s been 2 days and no one has followed up. Extremely disappointing.

The location of this property was perfect! We were steps away from endless shopping, dining, and museums. Not to mention short Uber rides away from Hollywood and Universal Studios and so much more we didn’t have time for. The staff were all very happy and kind. Especially, the counter host Juliette! Please let her know that we truly appreciated her. Stay sweet Juliette!

This hotel was just the perfect place to stay for my mom-and-two-daughters trip to LA. The decor (in the public spaces and rooms) is gorgeous. The rooms are comfortable, and super modern with "cool" with Jonathan Adler products and interesting design books on the modern/bespoke shelves. It's small enough of a hotel that you can easily pop in and out, with AMAZING small hotel service and friendliness. The TVs allow you to connect to your own Netflix or Apple TV accounts. It's ideally located near lots of food, shopping and cultural options (LACMA, Academy Museum, Grove and Farmers Mkt; Melrose flea market) and in/out privileges with valet make it's central location even better. Only things I would change are offering grab/go coffee service in the morning downstairs, getting rid of single use bath products, and making gym access something you can easily add on to your stay.....otherwise, I can't imagine a better 3 star place exists in LA. Highly recommend!
