We stayed here for three nights in April, and were bowled over by this charming hotel. The staff were friendly, gracious, and highly accommodating. The decor is understated elegance and very tasteful. Nice touches included automatic subdued lighting in the bathroom, TB above the tub, and probably the nicest bathrobes of any hotel I've stayed in. The pool and grounds are very beautiful.
We were so impressed, that we booked into the Beverly Hills Hotel (it's sister hotel in LA) the following week just to compare. I preferred Hotel Bel Air as it is more modern and has an intimate atmosphere.
I would note this was perfect for a relaxing break, however, if you are looking for a wild weekend in LA this is not the place. One minor criticism is the lack of wardrobe space and the bathroom was quite small (albeit spotless and very well equipped).
