“Californian, not Angeleno”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

LA, based on my brie experience, is largely flat plains of tract housing with strips of retail in between. To the north are Hollywood Hills, and nestling at the base of them; bordered by Sunset Boulevard and the '405' freeway is the Hotel Angeleno.
The area around the hotel is pretty much Los Angeles standard (freeways and construction), but that only increases the pleasure of arriving. Everything is ordered, quiet, elegant and efficient.
That's it really. If you want to spend your honeymoon here, don't (it's no place for romantic walks): but if you need to visit UCLA, are looking to tour the city and area, taking a special someone for a quiet weekend locked in your hotel room with each other it is perfect.
The restaurant is lovely, the staff are lovely, the facilities are great and, for some reason completely unknown to me, there is a ritual glass of sparkling wine in the restaurant at sunset (honest).
Enjoyed my time there very much.

Room Tip: Be in the restaurant (West) at sunset. Try it.

Loved this hotel. Comfy beds, decent sized rooms, good service, nice toiletries..... But it is right by the 405... Which makes it convenient. But also very noisy! Would stay here again but would ask for a room on a higher floor....

Drove down for the LA Art show, and to see some the massive Pacific Standard Time show at various venues, including the Getty which is right next door. Super convenient. Love having the view of 405, or as folks in LA inexplcably call it "the 405" from the mini balcony. Granted it is noisy with the sliding glass door open, so if you are someone who likes fresh air when you sleep, maybe not best choice. Super nice staff, the valet parkers are a great asset as the first people you meet. They put the hospitable in hospitality. Rooms are small, but clean, nicely decorated, big super comfy bed. Nice fitness room and heated pool. Great way to start a marathon of art viewing.Didn't try West, the dining option, because part of our LA routine is trying ramen places, korean bbq, dumplings and other foods that the Bay Area seems to lack. I'd definitely stay here again.

Great location near Beverly Hills/West Hollywood. Nice and clean with wine hour in the evening for free wine. Valet only (free, minus tip) for parking. Would recommend to others.

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Angeleno on several occasions. I have always found the service to be outstanding. The staff is always pleasant and helpful. In particular, a woman at the front desk named Edith has always been friendly, accommodating, and courteous whenever I have needed assistance. The rooms are always clean and neat. The Hotel is centrally located with Los Angeles Airport just a few minutes south of the hotel. I highly recommend the Hotel Angeleno. Ron

I very much liked this hotel except.... The service was exquisite including the happy hour reception in the lobby, the check-in staff (they also readily printed my airline boarding pass), the parking lot staff, the lobby snack bar staff, and the top floor restaurant service (evening hors d'oeuvres at the bar as well as several breakfasts were taste treats). The room was modern and comfy. I was on the seventh floor facing the freeway and the noise was continuous and loud; it sounded like the window was wide open even though everything was closed. I tuned it out and coded it as "white noise" but this kind of traffic noise all day and night would definitely be a problem for some visitors. This is not like the noise of a little bit of city traffic in a downtown hotel in NYC or Paris during the morning rush - it was a constant high decibel roar. The freeway wraps around the hotel so it is not clear that there is a quiet side. My hotel status is with Marriott points so I may not have received the best/quietest room. The workout room was very limited (one of each of about three exercise machines) and the pool was for soaking, not for laps. Nothing seemed to be within walking distance. This hotel is convenient for access to UCLA but the "W" and others are as close and don't have the noise problem.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor and facing away from the freeway noise!

My husband and I planned a jam packed trip to LA with shows and visits to all that LA has to offer. We rented a car and realized parking could be anywhere from $25-$40 a day ++. So our goal was to find a nice modern hotel (at least 3 star , preferably 4 star) close to everything.
The Hotel Angeleno did not diappoint. The close proximety to the highway was both a plus and a minus..Great to hop on in a jiffy so we could get to all the places we needed to go to. Not so great the first day when we woke up at 8 am in the morning to construction (not the hotels fault-city work on the highway). Upon request we were moved by the staff to a higher floor (key if you want to minimize the noise from all the cars. Also we were moved to the other side (the side with a lovely v iew of the Getty museum). In a nutshell here are some more reasons i would go back to the hotel Angeleno.
-very comfy beds!
-pleasing modern decor with cute little balconies with nice views.
-excellent pleasent staff
-free internet (we did not ecperience slow internet, so perhaps this problem is solved.
-FREE PARKING!!!!! (just need to tip the valets).
-handy restaturant in the hotel with a lovely ambience, view and decent food!

We will definitely be back!!!

Room Tip: Call Hotel directly and ask for a higher floor!
