Reviewed 27 August 2014

We spent a week in LA and stayed one night at the Sunset Marquis on the urging of my husband's friend who lives in LA and is a fairly well known movie star. We figured we'd trust his advice and he was pretty spot on. We had a really nice stay and would recommend it to anyone looking for a chill, low key place in a great location but off the beaten path. We stayed at the glitzy and glamorous SLS the next night and they were two extremes.

The trip was a whirlwind but there are five specific things that I remember about this hotel. 1) when we checked in we had to sign something agreeing to the "No Party" policy which was fine with us. We were told "Rock stars need to sleep too." 2) The rooms were dark which I imagine most people staying there really like. Makes it hard to get ready but allows you to sleep late. 2) Bar Whiskey was closed the night we were there due to an AC issue which was really disappointing. We were advised this was a must-do on our trip. 3) The front pool had little kids in it and the upper pool was really small and quiet and felt dated. My husband saw Hulk Hogan at the upper pool. 4) The water pressure in the shower was AMAZING. I have never experienced anything like it! I did not want to get out and I will measure every hotel shower I ever take against the shower at the Sunset Marquis.

I was a little doubtful that this hotel would be family friendly given its reputation as a rock n roll haunt. Be in no doubt that this hotel welcomes children with open arms and we had a great 5 days here. On arrival the kids enjoyed cookies and milk and welcome bags full of goodies. During our stay they loved the hotel treasure hunt which gave great prizes, teeshirts, baseball caps [good ones], icecreams, fruit etc. They loved the pools and friendly welcome they got from every member of staff at this hotel.

We loved the fantastic beds, the thoughtful and thorough turn downs, the efficient and welcoming staff, the wonderful photographs around this relaxed hotel, the cool bar, the great food and of course the great LA vibe of being in a really famous hotel and sharing the lift [sorry elevator!] with the odd rock star...

This is an amazing hotel with excellent service. We stayed here for a weekend after completing the highway one drive from San Francisco for our 25th Anniversary. Our room was not ready upon check-in which was no big deal for me but the manager went above and beyond to compensate for the delay. The hotel is older but the rooms are nicely renovated and the grounds are well kept. We stayed in a junior suite which overlooked the pool area. The room was spacious and the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The bathroom was modern with a huge walk in shower. The hotel has a casual and relaxing vibe but gets live at night. It's in a great location. Close to Sunset but located in a private residential area. This hotel has it all! Nice restaurant, spa, pool, bar and a staff that is second to none. Absolutely loved it.

This hotel was amazing. The gardens are beautiful, the lounges and chairs around the pool are perfect for relaxing. Walking distance to the West Hollywood Sunset Plaza - great cafes and nightclubs. The bed was too soft for me but apart from that the room was great. Our stay would have been perfect except they had a receptionist on duty who was very rude to us and the other staff. This was noticed by others. This really brought the standard of the hotel down so I hope there is a friendlier staff member next time I visit! The other staff were great, especially Oscar, lovely guy.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with a pool view, the other rooms are not as nice and are dark. Confirm yo...

My wife and I stayed at the Sunset Marquis for 5 days in July and loved the hotel, the staff and the location. Hernan and Logan made our stay even more memorable by their local knowledge and although they were busy always found time for a smile and a chat,
The hotel has an amazing rock n roll history and we saw a few big stars during our stay, there's a recording studio, a restaurant, valet parking and a nightclub on site as well as wonderfully private bungalows and villas set out on a few acres of beautiful gardens. The Marquis is just off Sunset Blvd, walking distance to all the West Hollywood night clubs and Sunset Plaza as well. I'll be heading back ASAP to this fabulous hotel!

I stayed here a few years ago and it was a great experience. It's a great hotel for star gazing. While we were there for only one night we saw Aerosmith (the whole band), Whoopi Goldberg, and Lady Gaga. The service was excellent. We were hanging out in the hotel lobby and the manager actually took the time to chat with us. We spent 30 minutes shooting the breeze and Aerosmith was literally sitting 10 feet away from us. The manager did not spend his efforts only on the stars. He treated us the exact same as he did the band. Really made us feel just as special as the band and did not treat us as though we were in any way less important than the band. The hotel is right in the middle of Hollywood yet very quiet and serene. It was a very relaxing stay and I will most definitely go back.

Room Tip: Ask for a villa. They are not too expensive and that's where the stars stay. The stars go ther...

We've stayed here 3 years in a row. We love the location, the retro vibe, the pool side service, and the staff.

Get a ground level suite to have your own lounge area.

Only downside is no bath or hot tub and expensive food. Head up to sunset blvd go left and find a nice breakfast joint on left side of the street with outdoor seating. One mile farther down is the best Thai Food in LA- Night+Market- get the crab fried rice!
