Very nice hotel, The people at the front desk welcomed us & were very nice. Too bad we can't say that compared to the rest of the staff. We asked for extra towels & were told to just use what was in our room. NOT nice!!!

The location of the hotel, tucked away in a forest of greenery in Bel Air, with immaculate gardens, is delightful. The comfort of the reception and rooms is excellent, and the service was perfect, most attentive. What lets it down is the quality of the restaurant, which does not live up to expectations. Both for breakfast and dinner it was't...

The design of the hotel gives guests a comfy, laid back and luxurious feeling in the lobby, courtyard restaurant and bar. Rooms and bathrooms are renovated with a modern style and were a very pleasant surprise. The rooms are laid out in bungalow style low rise buildings with charming walk ways. Front desk stand, restaurant, bar staff, valet in fact...

I attended a birthday party for a cousin at the Hotel. The room was large and the lay out excellent. The buffet table was set up so that each guest has easy access to the food. The food and service was excellent, the décor beautiful.

My wife and I had not stayed in the Bel-Air since 2009, i.e. Pre the major refurbishment, so were a little nervous because we had originally rated it the best small hotel in the world. I am glad to say that we would still rate it the same. Rooms are still divine, service is charming, and the food is great....

I want this place to be a secret. I really do. Especially for locals that want a staycation. But,...I can't...this place is simply magic. It's in the heart of insanity, yet has total sanctity. It's peaceful, quite, calm, has great service, rooms, food and really feels 'away from LA'. Yes, it's expensive. It's probably worth it. Me and my wife...
