I love this hotel. It is perfection. I love the rooms, the food, service, wine, cocktails, bar, swans and I wish I could move in. They go above and beyond to ensure you have a perfect stay, time, experience and meal. I love to visit during the holidays and bring friends and family, as they do a great job decorating...

My favorite hotel in the world. A luxurious step back in time. Beautiful and private, incredible food and service. Love the bar (as do celebrities). The valet gave us a ride to a restaurant! Romantic and all around perfect.

This property is beautiful, quiet and classy, making you feel like you're tucked away in the hills of Santa Barbara and not a mile away from the busy streets of Los Angeles. The staff is wonderful and the rooms are spacious with all the modern amenities you'd expect from a luxury hotel. The spa offers some of the best massage...

One of the most beautiful setting in LA for a hotel. The gardens are magnificent. The food and staff are superb. The only reason why I gave it 3 stars is the remodel that took place. In my opinion they lost the unique charm of the hotel that made it so special. It was an oasis that you could retreat...

Obviously one of the best hotels in the LA area. Never feel like you are in or near a city. Quiet park-like feeling. Great bar. Great drinks, service, food, atmosphere, great for kids, family, business. One of the best hotels in the world.

I spent three nights at the hotel in early December for a business conference nearby and had a terrific experience. The staff is friendly and accommodating without being overly solicitous, rooms are spacious and comfortable (and quiet!) and facilities are ample. Was especially impressed with the food - from the minibar selections (from Dean & Deluca) to the delicious restaurant...
