... streets while you're hunting down a taxi to take you back to the crew hotel.
Essentially the nightlife here hasn't changed, clubs still close at 2am, but I believe some keep going until around 4am, but without the serving of alcohol. Regardless of what day of the week it is, there's always a club that is pumping, and my favourite of course is The Abbey.
I virtually lived there every night. Including the night I arrived.
... out. We spent 2 days there, which is about the longest you really need to be in Vegas, especially if you like to gamble as much as we do. We got into some good ol Vegas shena****ns...and then...as quickly as it started...it was over.
We drove back to LA late, which I think was a good thing because we were tired and it made me want to get back to get some sleep. If it was the middle of the day, I think driving back in would have made me too sad that it was ...
... This time. I just sailed through the lobby like I own the place, out the side door and onto Wilshire Blvd. For my next inside tip, if you are a coffee *****, the only place to go is the Euro Cafe on S Santa Monica Blvd. A comfortable ten minute stroll from the Beverly Hilton, just short of Rodeo Drive. Hands down the best latte I've ever had in America. No, I haven't been *everywhere* ...

Walking back the 2 miles or so thru S. Inglewood along Century Blvd. we built up an appetite, so we headed back to the Marriott concierge's 5:30 & 7:30 ...

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.
