Le Montrose Suite Hotel
Travel Blogs from West Hollywood
Bolt upright at 5.30am! I thought I'd broken the back of the jetlag but no such luck. It's obvious that sleep has deserted me so I switch on the blackberry to catch up on emails before breakfast. It almost goes into meltdown. The impact of the volcano on various colleagues and journalist's travel plans is severe. How crazy is this - we were only …
Another earlly morning, another breakfast, another few hours bashing away on the computer in the sunshine firing off emails and replies, setting things up, chasing responses to projectss and so on.
By the time the laptop runs out of power and needs recharging I'm happy to get out of the midday sun and finish up in the hotel room. After a …
Ah, this is the life. A typical LA breakfast – granola, fresh fruit, yoghurt, OJ, strong coffee – and then getting stuck into a hard day at the office; the office being 75 degrees by the pool. Both Paul and I whip out our laptops and for three hours or so the pair of us sit side by side on sun loungers, plugged into our virtual worlds, …
A fine night's sleep, over all too soon, as at 7am I have to meet Eli in the hotel lobby. I’d agreed the night before to cover his parking charges for the hire car on my expenses, as otherwise he’d have to do an artist invoice to EMI and wait for reimbursement. However my helpfulness proves my undoing as the hotel informed me at …
... It really was a "wow I'm actually in America on this amazing adventure" moment. Venice Beach smells like weed, has some exceptionally interesting people with equally interesting stalls and is well worth the visit. Whilst at Santa Monica I came face to face with my fears. A guy riding a bike with about 5 large "pet" birds on it. It's safe to say I immediately turned and ...

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!
Problems, disappointments, and a ripoff are some of my opinions.
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.
