Historical Traveler Reviews Crescent Hotel Beverly Hills
Stayed at Crescent 3 nights at end of April. Very clean and staff was superb. Room was small but adequate. Will stay again on next LA trip. Price is very, very reasonable.
Noise and hype
When I stayed there 5 years ago, I really liked the place with its Miami Beach hotel feel and free snacks and fruit juices in the morning and I decided to return in January 2004.
New owners had upgraded the place with outdoor tables instead of the lush vegetation. The hotel lobby had been turned into a sort of lounge with hispters sipping expensive drinks from the kitchen cum bar.
First problem, when you return to your bedroom at night, you must go past half drunken hot things who block the lobby cum lounge and the stairs to the upstairs rooms.
Second problem. the music is loud and awful and if you don' t want to spend a few nights in a nightclub, I would avoid the place at all cost. The lobby employee at night has to keep people for resting their glasses on his counter. Not an intelligent solution.
The location is great and safe in Bevely Hills and one can walk to the farmer' s market on Sunday and to the many cafes and boutiques on Rodeo Drive but, next time, I am staying at the Hotel Bamboo in the Hollywood Hills. It is sheltered and quiet.
Not perfect, but lots of qualities
March 2004-- Here's the good: great location, elegant and hip, intimate, nice bedding, LCD TV with lots of cable choices, Aveda skin care products, cool bathroom, great price (I paid $140, but there are plenty of ways to pay for extras). Here's the bad: double room is SMALL, and I'm a New Yorker! Bathroom door can't open all the way--only a few feet of space around double bed. Am I in Japan? NOT for 2 people, but they may have larger rooms. No closet (small wardrobe), no full length mirror, one small towel bar, no room to put luggage, incredibly thin walls (bring earplugs, I heard the person next door snoring and the other room had a wee hours conversation I heard word for word) and aloof and inattentive staff (at least they look good, but a simple hello would be nice--the valets were very friendly). Cool music CDs in room, but open them and you pay $25 each. Clock radio needs manual to decipher (again, looks are everything). BUT one of the few places in LA where you can actually walk to stores--Whole Foods down the street, Rodeo Drive a few blocks, many restaurants and easy commute to all the best places in western LA. There's an attractive bar and restaurant in the lobby and nice outdoor patio in front--great place to meet up with friends and have a drink. Valet parking was convenient, expensive ($15/day) but good for frequent ins and outs. I'd stay again, but upgrade to a larger room. And bring less luggage.
Best Deal in Beverly Hills!!!!!!!!
Location was great, room was very clean, and staff was friendly. Hotel had best rates in area and we plan to make it our place to saty in Beverly Hills.
The Last Place To Stay...
I regret 100% staying at this crap hotel. I agree, the price was not
too bad for Beverly Hills (at $149/ngt.), but there was nothing great
about the hotel. From the start, most hotels have parking for guests.
All I found was valet. Then you enter a dark lobby/bar. The check-in is
in the corner and the employee behind the counter barely has room to
move. Second sign. Not that it matters, but most modern hotels have key
cards, not this place. They still have keys. You walk down a long
hallway (straight out of The Shinning), and to your room. Once you
unlock it, don?t try rushing in all at once. There is a refrigerator to
your left, then BAM, a bed on the floor. It?s to be very chic, but it
was more of an upset. The T.V., I admit was cool, but that?s about it.
The actual sleeping area was smaller then the bathroom. But the
bathroom had it?s own problems. On top of a very small room (the size
of a college dorm), it was NOSEY! You expect most hotels to have some
silence, not a ton. This place had NONE. People were running up and
down the halls at all hours of the night, up until 5am. My girlfriend
and I came back to our room around 12:30AM, and found the place
crawling with partygoers. Do they have some secret club we didn?t know
about? It was disgusting. Overall, this is the worst hotel I?ve stayed
in my life. They did nothing to quiet the place, after we called in the
noise. I asked for an extra pillow?never got it. Recommendation: Pass
I stayed at this hotel while on holiday in Beverly Hills. It's fabulous! Recently refurbished, this hotel is very modern, yet warm and homely. At night the place transforms into a popular hot-spot. It has the feel of a fantastic party in a gorgeous home! The bar resembels a kitchen at a party. The Chef is wonderful, the patio is quaint, like sitting in your friends patio. I loved it and would recommend it to everyone!
The Crescent was a great little hotel. The prices are WAY more affordable than anything else in Beverly Hills and so I wasn't sure what to expect. Very pleasantly surprised. Great place to grab a drink - we did it almost every night of our stay. Try the French Toast. The rooms are totally new. And the bed is comfortable. I'd definitely return.
Wow - Newly renovated
Stayed at this hotel a year ago prior to the renovation. It was nice, but needed some work. Stayed there last night. Wow!! Totally redone.
Rooms are great. New amenities. The best part is the new restaurant lounge. Indoor/outdoor patio has a really nice atmosphere. It's the best place to stay under $200 in Beverly Hills for sure.
Avoid this Hotel!
I travel alot, and made a reservation here after reviewing the website
... I like to find little-known places to stay. This place didn't meet
my expectations; the room was "tiny" ... maybe 10x10; the plumbing in
the bathrooms were visibly rusting & old; the breakfast wasn't ready @
6:30 as indicated (I had to wait 15 minutes); and to top it off, the
walls are noticably thin. I listed to a couple next door have *** for
hours ...! I do not recommend this hotel.
European Style, American Comfort, Midwestern Prices!
My aunt and I recently spent a week in Southern California, and we stayed in her favorite hotel, The Beverly Crescent in Beverly Hills, CA. Having never been to California, I was looking forward to a nice place to sleep after days of sightseeing, trips, and just bumming around. The Beverly Crescent is the most perfect little hotel I have stayed at in some time. Just 38 rooms on the quiet corner of Crescent and Brighton, just across from the Civic Center. For $119/night rack rate (my aunt doesn't know how to look for Internet bargains, but it is included in some of the cheap hotel sites; I asked around), you couldn't stay in a better location. A mere 3 blocks away from Rodeo drive and a block and a half from Santa Monica Blvd. (the bus stop for us!), the Beverly Crescent is superb. A very tasty Continental breakfast is served in the morning on the lush patio and the most attentive staff I have had the pleasure to deal with in ages made my stay something to write home about. The rooms are cozy, with one full bed and a twin bed (double) or just a full bed (single) and all have private baths. Cable TV is also included. The hotel is changing hands, which may help out with the superficial repairs that are needed (but these imperfections make it feel like home and not like a faceless chain.) I hope the Beverly Crescent will continue to provide visitors with superb service and excellent rates for years to come!

We walked once more down Rodeo Drive. We obviously couldn't afford anything on that street, but it was so cool, and nice to just be at and see. We worked out way up to Beverly Hills entrance where we could see the big ...
... A good spectacle and the Kings had their first win of the season, 4 - 1. The total time to play three(?) 20 minute periods was a little over 2 1/2 hours. I had done a little online research on the rules and it wasn't too hard to follow. An early gloves-off fisticuffs that saw both players sin binned, some scrappy play and some very skilful passing and defence. The venue doubles for basketball games and has a seating capacity of ...

The Sat Nav was kind although very prescriptive. We finally got to "Balboa RV Resort" on Balboa Boulevard (although the Sat Nav insisted on calling it "Balbo-ay"). It was an unusual little place, mainly populated by permanent residents.
Once sited we had a little walk about but turned in early because we wanted to drive to Universal Studios early, for a day of movie orientated thrills.
... also watched "The Truman Show" and "The Lego Movie". I had Shepard's pie for tea, got to see the craziest sunset/sunrise transition with the stars up above. I listened to classical piano with one headphone attempting to sleep, longest nap was ten minutes. I went to the toilet and of course, there was turbulence. Wasn't sure whether to laugh or run back to seat as I literally was being thrown ...
... up our tickets to a Dodgers Match. So we headed off after picking up our tickets from the Hotel. Dodger Stadium, here we come. The game started at 5pm, but the traffic was slow so we missed the 1st 2 innings, although that didn't matter, we still had 7 Innings each to go.We got to see 4 great home runs, that was awesome a great afternoon/evening, great seats friendlypeople and a great feeling being there. The Dodgers ended up winning 7 - ...
