Thanks to TripAdvisor, I found Le Petit and eagerly booked for a 2-night stay. It was everything we hoped for.
Right around the corner from the Whiskey and the Viper Room is this hidden gem in a most peaceful neighborhood. My hubby and I were immediately taken by the eclectic and warm decor; clearly a lot of thought and consideration went into it. Check-in and check-out was easy and pleasant. The valet service was very good and all of the staff were on the ball, even when we came back at 3 a.m. after a night on the town. There was a $30/night valet parking charge but it seemed worth it.
Our room was very small with a queen bed, fireplace, flat screen TV, and a little dining area with minibar. For two people, it was perfect. There wasn't a lot of space for luggage, but we managed. I took note of the fact that the closet contained extra pillows (thank you, not all hotels do this), a safe, robes, and slippers, I think there was iron/board as well. The bathroom was nicely decorated, and when I say this was the best shower I've ever taken in a hotel, I'm not kidding. The water pressure was fabulous, and the height of the showerhead was great for my 6'+ tall husband. I literally did not want to get out of the shower. And the bath products were lovely, a brand called Lelia Sea. The bed was extremely comfortable, with nice soft sheets. The bedside alarm clock had an iPod dock, bonus! Air conditioning was perfect and we had total control of it (unlike our experience in Seal Beach). The hallways featured unique art and furniture, and the dim lighting made for a very laid-back feel. The place was generally pretty quiet, something that we appreciate.
Already happy with the interior of the hotel, we ventured onto the roof to check out the pool. It was the place to be! Great views of the hills, lots of places to sit or lay down and chill, a fireplace, and even a spot where they show movies! The bar area was nice, as was the seating area for dining, which was delightfully laden with fragrant wildflowers and attracted numerous hummingbirds. An interesting variety of music piped through speakers at a pleasant volume. Due to our short stay, we did not get to try the food but I would bet it is very good.
We were sad to leave West Hollywood and Le Petit; the hotel felt like a little piece of Europe in L.A. If that sounds appealing to you, stay here! We are so glad we did, and would defnitely return.
