The rooms are well suited to a maximum 4 people, so my family of 6 was quite squished! The rooms are set out really nicely; it looks clean, modern and makes good use of the space.
There is only valet parking available, which is $38 per night, which will be added to the bill at the end. You are also expected to tip the valet $2-$5 each time you get the car, which as Australians with no tipping culture, is a bit tricky to remember sometimes.
The kitchen also does not have any pots, pans, plates, or any other cooking utensils or cutlery. You need to order them from reception as you need them.
It is walking distance from a good supermarket.

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Montrose Suite Hotel West Hollywood
Top of the line!
Le Montrose is definetly the best hotel in the Los Angeles area. The staff treated us like gold the minute we walked in. The rooms are beautiful, with the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. I highly recommend having breakfast by poolside which is located on the roof. The panoramic view of the Los Angeles valley is breathtaking. The menu has a wide selection and the food is excellent. The service was 5-Star through our stay, down to the cookies and chocolate covered strawberries in your suite at bedtime. Don't bother with other hotels, Le Montrose is the one!
My husband and I have been staying at the Montrose for 5 years. It only seems to get better. The rooftop pool and sauna are heavenly. Breakfast beside the pool, with prompt and friendly service is a must. Rooms with romantic fireplaces and a private restaurant with complimentary wine. A celebrity hide out, great for people watching. Location! Location!
Oasis off of the Strip
Five star hotel service at a reasonable price for the area. Tucked away in a residential area but just off the Strip. The rooftop pool at night overlooking the valley is a must!
The Best-Le MOntrose Hotel
From the time we were escorted into the hotel until the time we left we felt special. Everyone there was very cordial and helpful. Our bellman, Art, even gave us his name and told us to call if we needed anything at all. The fruit basket in our room was wonderful as was the cookies and choclate covered strawberries brought to us the next evening. The bed mattress was so comfortable we wanted to bring it home.
My wife and I just spent Valentines Day at Le Montrose.We usually stay at The Sunset Marquis.No more,Le Montrose is our new home.Incredible staff even though it was very busy due to the NBA game the Hotel and staff exceeded our expectations.I think this Hotel is one of the best keep secrets and Values around.The suites are beautiful,but the staff is amazing.Got us a reservation for Dinner for Valentines at our favorite restaurant even though I had been trying to get in for weeks.GREAT HOTEL
Total rip OFF
What a total rip off, do not pay full price for this hotel, total rip off, this place is tiny and small , the rooms are a nice size but beyond that, thats all they have to offer, I payed $155 a night for this hotel , was only worth I would say $80. I have stayed at the Valadon hotel before which is a minute right by and payed only $99 a night and had much better service, with the same size suit room and roof top pool.This hotel is for suckers only!
Lots of Problems
Problems, disappointments, and a ripoff are some of my opinions.
When we arrived to check-in we were told that our confirmed and credit card reserved one bedroom suite was not available. The clerk told us that we would have to take the next class down room (which was not a true suite), but that we would be provided a 'free breakfast'. We complained, but that did no good. We also complained that the 'free breakfast' was costing about $35.00 as he wanted us to pay the more expensive room price! The best we could get him to do was to reduce the room rate so that it was $6.00 more (plus tax) than we could have reserved the lower class room for. There was also no parking.
The room itself was clean, but noisy. We did not get much sleep here.
The next morning, they tried to charge us for the hotel added gratuity and service charge for the 'free breakfast' which was about $22.00--but we refused. And even though there was no parking, we were also charged $20.00 for parking (plus related taxes), so we had to complain to also get that taken off the bill.
We booked directly through the hotel. Its ad said that we would be provided free mineral, fruit, and cookies. We got none. When we complained, the clerk said that the manager would call us about it.
That was a week ago. We received no call.
Alot of hype
I expected this hotel to be really fabulous from the write ups but found it to be nothing buy hype. Very small hotel but the rooms are a nice size. The staff was ok but snobby, mostly gay staff.
spend a few more bucks and stay at Chateau Marmont, Hotel Avalon, or Maison 140..... this place is cheesy: uncomfortable beds, cheap sheets, dull interiors... and paper thin walls--you can even hear normal levels of conversation in the next room. I've stayed in many hotels in LA, and this place is at the bottom of my list.
We were torn between staying at The Standard and Le Montrose. I checked TripAdvisor and found several bad reviews toward The Standard, and mostly excellent ones toward Le Montrose, which made us decide on the latter. This was perhaps one of the best decisions I've ever made.
The staff was incredibly amazing. Our room didn't come with a coffee-maker and we asked if one could be provided. We asked that on our way out the door to check out parts of the city, and when we returned, there was a coffee-maker sitting on the counter. The shower didn't have hot water so we called Guest Services, and they sent an engineer up in five minutes flat. Everything was terrific.
Not that bad of a spot, either. It's a couple blocks down the hill from Sunset and is relatively quiet.
Our second night staying there, there was a fight in the room next door between two men and a woman. Security was called and they were right up. They didn't just request them to "keep it down" like you'd expect - they actually threw them out of the hotel.
Thank you, Le Montrose.

After so many jam-packed days, we assigned today as our designated rest day. We slept in, with no alarm clocks set. I deserved this more than the rest of the family as my blogging skills are super tight, and I had been catching up furiously in the past couple of days.
Mum, dad and I went for a walk in the morning to the Beverly Center, a …
... height: normal;">Then it was back to Long Beach. Everyone is tuckered out (maybe the altitude) and there’s a few ears not popped (definitely the altitude). It’s good to have a sit at the end of the day. Left over Chinese for dinner mmm yum.
On the way back we noticed a tanker had jackknifed on the other side of the freeway and the traffic build up went on for ever. It is mind boggling the amount of traffic that is constantly going ...
... and decided to head to Santa Monica and the beach there. It was lush. Golden sands, palm trees and a cute little pier with rides and stalls. We also saw the sign which marks the end of Route 66 and that meant we were 5047 miles away from home!! Probably the furthest I will ever be from all my loved ones and my lovely Jay-Man. There's lots of homeless though in and around Hollywood which kind of takes the shine off the ...
... not. His name was Jim, a lawyer with 6 kids, and we spoke about all kinds of aspects of life. He divorced his wife when his children were at a young age like I was, and he told me of the stories and bonding he made with his kids because of that. He didn't know how to cook and use a washing machine and a lot of the time the few older children were teaching him, and helped him parent the younger ones until he learnt. But as he learnt from ...

I think I could have happily passed the entire evening there but out on the streets there were hare krishna drummers/dancers...artists painting outside the galleries and people everywhere. There was also a heavy police presence to keep an eye on things and as we had left the car Julie gave us the slightly worrying ...
