I spent 5 nights at the Maison 140, and overall I was very pleased--much more so than some of the recent reviews would lead you to believe! The location is great--right off Rodeo Drive--and the parking is reasonable--$28 per day with in and out privileges--but the best point is the bed. The mattress has a pillow top, and the linens are a very high thread count, so it really does feel as if you are sleeping on a cloud. Lovely!
Yes, the room is small, but there is a nice-sized desk and enough closet space for the average traveler. I stayed in the room with my sister, and we both felt that there was enough space for two. This would NOT be a good hotel for children--there isn't enough space for all of the paraphernalia--but it's fine for one or two adults.
The bathroom is small but chic--all black and white and silver. There's a fridge in the closet, and there are large bottles of shampoo, soap, and cream rinse. The bathroom linens are a good quality.
The in-window air conditioner will be a problem for those who are used to central air. It's a bit noisy, but it's effective. If this is a deal-breaker, then look for another hotel. Also, the hallways are painted black. This wasn't a big issue for me--how much time do you spend in the hallways?--
but if you want light and bright, look elsewhere.
The hotel breakfast is perfectly fine for those who want yoghurt, lots of fresh fruit, good bread, and simple pastries. The coffee is delicious, and the wait staff willingly keeps your cup full. I'm not crazy about the little drum tables in the dining area; something a bit larger would make eating in the space more comfortable. We also had breakfast one morning at the sister hotel, the Mosaic. We spent $60 for two, including tax and tip. The food was good, but at this price, it wasn't an experience that we repeated.
Maison 140 guests have access to the Mosaic's pool, and we took full advantage of this perk. Again, this is a pool for adults; it's more about sitting around and reading or having some coffee or wine, rather than doing a vigorous workout. The vegetation is lovely, and I found this spot to be a wonderful oasis, especially early in the morning.
In sum, Maison 140 is an excellent value if this is the type of boutique hotel that you are looking for; if you want lots of space and a wide selection of breakfast items, then try the big, glitzy Bevery Hills hotels.
