“a wonderful place and a landmark not to miss in LA”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

It's our second time at the chateau. This time we had a room without a view, right by the garden. But what a beautiful suite, it was huge and very tastefully decorated. The whole building is what you expect of Hollywood, outlandish, surreal and gorgeous . The staff is most attentive and kind.
Attention to detail is non paralleled.
we'll definitively come back.

I stayed at Chateau Marmont for 7 days while in Los Angeles for work. I could probably write a book about my experience there but for your sake, I'm going to try and some it up in a few lines here.

My experience:
I partied a little bit. Hit the pool (which is temp. regulated 24 hours a day). Had breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and stayed up partying in my room with some celebs who crashed the party and starting telling their "Chateau stories" (one of whom's involved watching Hunter Thompson put his fist through a window in the room we were staying in (Room 69) while tripping on Acid). Basically if you're at all into Rock and Roll and Hollywood legend, there is no other place in the country to stay.

That being said-

That's not WHY you stay there, and I doubt that is everyones experience, nor do I think that everyone would enjoy that. Chateau is a great mix of old charm and contemporary amenities. For example there's a pool, but not a super luxurious pool/hot tub with state of the art everything. It's a nice little pool where people keep to themselves sip drinks, get a tan, and relax. There's no spa, but you can get a massage in the room. You can get just about anything you need delivered to your room. In fact, you could cook a thanksgiving dinner in our room. When you're there, it's easy to get sucked in and not want to leave, it's a hotel built to seclude it's guests from the outside world. Anyone complaining about the service just doesn't get it, if you ask for something you get it, other than that, they are trained to leave you alone. There are guests who live in the hotel for months at a time, and if you're lucky enough to stay there for a few days, the staff treat as one of them.

Food:
The food was amazing. I had three meals a day there for a week, my favorite was the Spaghetti Bolognese. I have no complaints at all. Tea was especially amazing. (only con obviously is the price)

I had an amazing experience at Chateau Marmont. If you're in LA for work or just want to escape for a little, you can really sink in and relax here.

PS- If you're scared the few people that are partying will keep you up at night? Don't be. The place is built to survive earth quakes (literally), You can't hear a single thing in the neighboring rooms.

Room Tip: We had Room 69. And it was incredible. HUGE balcony overlooking LA and the cafe in the courtyard. Hi...

WOW!!! We truly loved the Chateau. Once inside the calm interior the outside world was lost to us. Real step back in time, a very retro bungalow, great bar and restaurant, superb staff. Very "unfussy" very comfortable, relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable. The best margarita in LA. Could just imagine the good old glam days of Hollywood and movie stars. Absolutely fantastic hotel. LOVED it. Some people will just not get it, but we did and would hope to get it again!!!

Room Tip: Any room in the Chateau works!!!

I'm not sure why some don't like this place, but our trip was top shelf from start to finish. You can feel the history when you walk through the place, take a dip in the pool, or grab a drink on the patio. We had a bungalow and it was awesome, with a retro decor circa the glam days of Hollywood. We saw some celebs(leave them be), we hung by the pool, we enjoyed the entire experience. The staff was on-point and more than willing to help. I recommend it highly. I know some complained on this sight about arrogant staff, poor service,etc., but I experienced none of that. Yes, it's expensive, but I believe worth it. I have stayed at some cool spots in L.A., but this is my first choice next time in town. Hey, it's the Chateau.

This hotel is absolutely amazing. Very expensive but if you want to splurge, definitely worth it. Restaurant incredible, service discreet and personable and the rooms are huge, furnished in a lovely manner and have every thing you need. The hotel is in the best location and the you could spend days lounging by their pool. Favourite hotel ever.

This experience cannot be beat. We came for a 40th birthday celebration and it was the best girls' trip we have ever had. The terrace and bar are fun and there are lots of star sightings. The rooms are old but what charm and ambiance. It is quiet, beautiful, and happening all at the same time.
