We landed after more than 30 hours of travel from South Africa and arrived at the Millienium Biltmore, LA. While the hotel is historical and architecturally amazing, the walls are paper thin. You can hear people walking in the corridors, the guests in the rooms on either side of you and their TV very clearly so as to follow their conversation.
The room was neat and spacious and nicely decorated. The concierge was very knoweldgable and gave us a few helpful hints of where to go and where to eat.
Disappointed to have two beds though instead of the king size bed we requested as we were on our anniversary.
The food in the restuarant was fantastic. Our first meal in the USA was delicious.
