Reviewed 12 November 2013

This was my second stay (11/10-11/12) at the petit ermitage in West Hollywood and as always they exceeded my expectations. This hip bohemian styled hotel is in the perfect location between Sunset and Santa Monica blvd right in the middle of all the action West Hollywood has to offer. The rooftop salt water pool was gorgeous at night time and the artwork that lined the hallways gave this hotel a really cool feel. The hotel staff was more than accommodating and the girls working the front desk were a lot of fun! Definitely one of the best boutique hotels in West Hollywood and I will definately be staying here next time I'm in LA. Thanks guys! -William Henkle

Room Tip: The suites on the first floor are pet friendly!

We were invited to brunch by hotel guests at the roof top restaurant. . .beautiful large table under the canopy in the middle of the roof top garden. The view was expansive, the garden, table and setting could not have been better. What a great atmosphere. . . and if that is all you care about you will be VERY happy. Otherwise, do not eat here. The food was uninspired and strange. . .and took FOREVER to come out of the kitchen. At a table of 12, no one wanted to complain (people didn't know each other very well) but no one looked happy. My meal. . . the mediterranean plate, was a disaster. . . do not ever order this. A quarter of a piece of pita bread diced into micro-triangles, hummus that was . . . awful. . .some strange I don't know what combo of tomatoes watermelon onions and spices. . .and flat squares of what presumably was falafal. . . tasteless, tough, cold, rectangular shaped and texture of leather. . . not the tasty spicey chick pea balls expected. Service was SLOW and delivered by a space cadet who managed to spill a canister of olive oil on me. Not a drop, the cannister. . . on my jacket. Thank heavens it wasn't an expensive jacket. . . anyway, I sense this was not out of the ordinary. . . the entire "restaurant" seemed very laissez faire, slow, clueless and tasteless in terms of food. So. . . make sure to check out this rooftop atmosphere. . . but be careful what you order. Some of the other entrees that no one looked happy with included various eggs benedict, eggs, salads and hamburger. Ah well. . . there are a million places to eat within a short walk

Room Tip: We went to our friends room. . . it was dark/dank and on the first floor near the bathroom available...

I stayed here while visiting my daughter at a nearby college. The rooms are large and quiet, the bed was very comfortable and my room had a sitting area with a small balcony. The fabrics and furniture are very bohemian. We loved the rooftop pool area. Although we did not swim, we enjoyed lounging on the large beds and looking out over LA as it is on the roof. Dinner in the butterfly sanctuary was fantastic and brunch was delicious. I will definitely be back.

Finishing up a roadtrip through California, we stayed at the Petit Ermitage in West Hollywood for two nights. It is an absolutely wonderful hotel, very well situated between Sunset Blvd and Santa Monica Blvd, in a nice quiet neighbourhood. On the outside, one might describe it as unassuming. However, looks are deceiving; on the inside this hotel has a tastefully styled, designed and decorated atmosphere. Especially the artwork along the hallways is impressive and shows the excellent taste of the owners.

While our car was parked by the valet, we were impeccably assisted by the valet and by the hotel desk clerk. We had booked a junior suite, and this turned out to be a very nice and pretty large room looking out over the quiet street in front of the hotel. Again, styling was very much to our tastes, and both the bedroom and bathroom were absolutely, spotlessly clean. The bed was excellent, and without even the slightest noise from either the street or from inside the hotel, we slept like a baby.

When staying at the Petit Ermitage, a special mention has to be given to the wonderful private rooftop club. It is an absolute joy to visit. My wife and I settled on the cabana with a great view of the hills, and enjoyed some perfectly made cocktails served by very professional servers, before also enjoying a perfect diner in the rooftop restaurant area. In fact, diner was so enjoyable that we had diner there for both nights we stayed. Breakfast too was excellent: great coffee and delicious fresh food.

Staying at the Petit Ermitage was an absolute joy, and my wife and I would have no hesitations in staying here again. Even in the wonderful and huge city of Los Angeles with plenty of places to stay, a hotel like the petit Ermitage is an absolute gem. Highly recommended!

This is a terrific hotel if you're looking for a boutique hotel that will give you an experience you will always remember. It is pricey, and was a splurge for me. I crossed my fingers that it would not disappoint, and it did not! The hotel is so unique. It has a totally bohemian style. It is like a Tim Burton circus. This hotel is not for you if you are uptight or very conservative in your views. It has a great, dark sense of humor. European (topless) pool, intimacy kits in the bedrooms, abstract drawings in the stairwell of mouths popping pills. It is very tastefully executed, but not for those whose idea of a perfect hotel experience is the Ritz Carleton. Absolutely DO NOT leave this hotel without having dinner in the rooftop restaurant. The atmosphere is georgeous, and the food and drink were literally the best I have ever had...anywhere. It was so unique, and perfectly prepared. The staff is so friendly and accomodating. The only disappointment for me is that photography is prohibited anywhere in the hotel....I would have loved to get pictures of all the details. Not sure if they do this because of celebs or the European pool, but they say it's because of all the antique pieces of art (yeah right). You won't regret staying here!

Phenomenal dinner options in one of the coolest rooftop lounges LA has to offer. The Tangine du Jour was incredible, as were the cocktails and ambiance for our party of four. Can't recommend a more unique date in the city!

Great location in Beverly Hills/West Hollywood, this hotel is a little gem!

The rooms are large and nicely decorated, and the private rooftop bar is just amazing! We had a really top notch service and I'd seriously recommend this place.

The only thing I am not happy about is the $36 overnight fee parking, which adds a lot to the room price and is a bit of a rip off. In a country where everyone drives, they should clearly state this hidden charge.
