We had a great stay at this West Hollywood location ,. There are two pools on the property set in beautiful gardens. The pool lounges are very comfortable and never crowded while we were there. The rooms are spacious & the bathroom had a huge rainfall shower.On the downside the mini bar has blue lights and despite being in a cupboard it lights up the room at night and the air con is noisy.Wi-Fi is such an important part of travelling now and I really do not understand hotels charging for it ..
The check in staff probably need to realise that all guests are equal and treat everyone the same I also found them a little underwhelming but the concierge and bar & restaurant staff were terrific.
We enjoyed our meals at the hotel but we also had some lovely meals in restaurants nearby especially Everleigh . Use of a gym nearby is included which was great. All in all we enjoyed staying at this hotel and I would definitely recommend it as the place to stay in LA

Room Tip: Room with balcony u may be able to turn off air con and open door ? Check the mini bar.

Overall we had a great stay in West Hollywood at the Sunset Marquis. Great, multi-pool property, with an exclusive oasis feel in the middle of a bunch of buildings (i.e. LA). I took off a star for luke-warm reception at the check-in desk, a daily WiFi fee (which nowadays should always be "free") and very loud AC unit that kicks on and off frequently in the room. (It works, just really loudly) See pros and cons below..

Pros:
- Location, WeHo is central to many different great restaurants, bars, Sunset Strip, etc
- Included access to Equinox Gym, a great place to workout
- Two pools with comfortable deck chairs, towels and umbrellas
- Restaurant (Cavatina) is in the middle of a lot of greenery, providing a very exclusive feel with delicious food (Breakfast and Dinner)
- Super clean and nicely (modern) styled rooms. The housekeeping staff was amazing and the Aveda amentities are always nice.

Cons:
- $11.95/day WiFi fee. This should be included in the hotel price. Come on now, this is ridiculous...it's not 2004 anymore.
- Loud AC Unit in the room. Always kept the room at the right temperature, but kicking on and off was very loud throughout the entire day and night.
- Ladies at the check-in reception desk were very cold upon check-in. Don't know if this was because we weren't one of the "famous" people in the hotel or just a general "LA Welcome".
- Cost of adult beverages...it's LA, they are expensive. That said, there are plenty of good bars close-by that are offering more reasonable prices.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing IN toward the first pool (assuming you aren't staying in one of the high-e...

I stayed here on business in May 2014 and it has become one of my favourite hotels ever.
Great clean, modern feel to it. Has a boutique, friendly vibe to it as well as a rock and roll edge with the artwork and gallery.

The bed in my room was one of the comfiest i've ever slept in (including my own) and the shower in the bathroom was amazing. It also had a great selection of Aveda toiletries AND free wifi. The pool was also very nice to relax around and the sunloungers were cushioned and comfortable.

Location wise it is very central to West Hollywood and the Sunset Strip. I will definitely be staying here the next time I return to LA.

Excellent boutique hotel. Excellent service. Great environment, friendly staff. We recommend the pool level rooms. The restaurant is highly recommended for breakfast lunch and dinner. Concierge service is greatand personalized. The only comment is on the wifi where you have to purchase a data package per device per room. Its not the $12 a day per device but more why the need from the hotel to charge that when u r already paying a premuim high price for the room and services? Highly recommended in this part of the city.

Hotel was not a 4.5 star! It came close to a 4 star.
The valet and Wi-Fi rates were ridiculous.
The location is great, service is good.
The rooms were old with a musky odor. Overpriced.
However, the bed was extremely comfortable.

An amazing hotel. So much character and a choice of pools. First time I've ever had a bed more comfortable than mine at home. Really enjoyed Sunday brunch. Perfect location particularly if you want to take in live music on the strip. Anyone who loves rock music shouldn't stay anywhere else in LA - you should see the photos and will be amazed by who's stayed there. We only stayed 3 nights but would love to go back for a week.

Great hotel, feels like a tranquil oasis in the middle of this busy city. Location is as good as it can be in the sprawl of LA. The standard rooms are nice but if you can stretch the budget a bit opt for a poolside suite which are amazing. The pool and bar areas are the real reason to choose this hotel; really feels like you've escape the city. Staff were friendly and helpful.
