Historical Traveler Reviews Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel Los Angeles
A wonderful surprise
Stayed here while attending commencement at UCLA. Great location, close to UCLA, west LA, santa monica, beverly hills etc. The service was great, the sunday brunch is a must, and the gift shop was full of unique and wonderful jewelry and handbags--great for last minute presents! Would highly recommend to anyone.
Lovely boutique hotel in Bel-Air nr the 405/Getty
Very lovely boutique hotel located just off the 405 on Sunset, so great for jumping on the freeway to get around to other parts of LA. Large room, nicely appointed. Public spaces are also very nice, outdoor gardens, etc. Only had b-fast at the restaurant, but that was very good (expensive, but about the norm for a 4 star hotel restaurant.)
If you on occasion stay (in major cites) in the $200++ level hotels, this will be a very nice surprise if you get it for less (I paid $110 a nite via hotels.com which was a tremendous bargain for this quality.)
Very nice hotel!
We stayed at this hotel in July & really liked it. We had two rooms through Priceline. We requested two beds in one room & a king in the other & received our request. The king room seemed smoky even though it was supposed to be non-smoking, so we asked to be moved & were put in one of the huge rooms described in a previous review. One of the employees told me that this property was originally built as a Senior living center, which explains why some of the rooms are so large.
The pool and gardens are lovely. The employees are competent and friendly. The location is great--close to Beverly Hills, UCLA, Hollywood, and Santa Monica. We were able to park our own car close to the rooms, which we liked.
The only negative I can think of for this property is the fact that it is two separate buildings and you must be shuttled from one to the other--or walk up & down a very steep hill. In addition, there were no elevators in our building. It was only two stories, so not a big deal for us, but some people might have a problem with the stairs.
I would highly recommend this hotel, especially at the bargain price of $81.00 that we paid.
Stayed here in July, 2004, Not what I expected. Lovely setting. Employees were cordial and helpful. Wonderful room. However the commode was a water saver and abt the correct height for a toddler! After flying for several hours. I thought (each time I used it) that I'd have to call for help to get up!! Cld not locate an outlet close to my bed to attach some medical equipment I needed to use at night. An outdoor sauna would have just hit the spot.
Great Hotel , Great Spa, Great Price
I loved this hotel although it was a little out of the way...not easy to find when driving in. Got a great room poolside at a fantastic price...priceline...the food here is also fantastic, would stay there again in a second!!
Large, comfortable room
My friend and I stayed here in May. I booked the room through Orbitz. Part of the selection criteria was the price, which was the most reasonable for this area of L.A. I called ahead to make sure we were getting a double bedded room. When we showed up, the young man at the front desk confirmed that we were getting the room we requested. The room was very large and we appreciated the ironing board and iron. The front desk responded immediately with our complaint re the air-conditioning, which worked very well upon our return, after enjoying a complimentary glass of wine. Only problems were noise above us in the middle of the night and the $18.00 charge for parking. Otherwise enjoyed the pool and thought the service was friendly and responsive.
We will never stay at this hotel again! The Spa service was awful. They did not show up for their appointment and were rude when calling to explain why.
Quiet with great service & a great location!!
We spent a weekend in Februaury in a room overlooking the pool/garden area. It was very relaxing & quiet considering it is right next to the 405 freeway. Which was very convenient when we had to get to Hollywood (it only took 15 minutes). The service was outstanding (very friendly & helpful). We got to the Getty Center in 5 minutes & spent a wonderful afternoon eating lunch, enjoying the art & taking in the incredible views of LA! The rooms are worn in areas & the building has an ugly rectangular design, but otherwise it is a great place to see the westside of LA as long as you have a car (which is true for 80% of LA).
Not What I expected..but great Service
I spent a large amount of time reviewing hotels before I decided on the Summit Bel Air. I choose it after looking at the rooms on-line and for the services provided. Upon arriving I was impressed with the Lobby and concierge. Service here was excellent.
The room itself was somewhat disappointing. The beautiful bedding in the on-line picture had been replaced with a ugly floral print bedspread. It did have a nice sitting area on the back terrace, but there was no view. No slippers had been left in the room, but were brought immediatly upon my request. One of the disappointments was the lack of sound proofing between rooms. I could easily hear every word on the TV next door, and I didn't think they had it particularly loud.
About 4 in the morning my neighbors decided to put the radio on and woke me up. Luckily they weren't there for long. I spoke to the front desk about this the next morning and they said to call if it happened again.
The next issue I had was that the toilet would not quit running. I had to open the tank and push the flap closed. This happened my final night so I let the front desk know. Also there appeared to be a leak coming from the toilet as the grout was wet next to the toilet base.
Overall, I would say the service was outstanding and the rooms mediocre. I doubt I would pay the money again to stay here.
This was our third stay at this hotel for an annual meeting in Los Angeles. The hotel is located on Sunset Blvd right off Interstate 405, making this location ideal for anyone with business in Beverly Hills, UCLA, or Santa Monica.
We had an executive suite with a king size bed, large dressing area with seperate sink/vanity & closet, large bathroom, couch, oversized chair, table that seats 4, stocked refrigerator, seperate refrigerator that we could stock, in room safe & another large closet...the rooms are very very large! The staff was very friendly & very accommodating with nightly turndown service. We ate in the hotel restaurant twice, food was excellent! Our sheets were changed everyday, this was the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in, simply immaculate!! I give this hotel the top rating for service & cleanliness as I am very picky!

Up early (again!) to ensure we would get our full money's worth at Universal Studios Hollywood. After considering various transport options, we decided to drive on the recommendation of site owner Steve. We left at 8am, straight into the thick of the Los Angeles morning rush hour traffic. As we crawled along the highway, the RV fuel light came on. At least this would be our final fill-up, and we would only have to be a quarter full to hand back the vehicle.

On my way back to tell Kerrie about my brush with the law, I ran into George (our Attendant) and told him about running into the Policeman. "Oh", he said, "probably just someone who misbehaved and needed to be kicked off the train." I relayed the story we'd been told at lunch - about the Police ...

Everyone was starving so we headed out to Universal Walk for some lunch and then came back in to do Shrek 4D. After that it was time to meet our tour guide Rick who was going to take us on the second part of our tour.
First stop was the Hollywood sign where we took some photos.
Next stop was Hollywood Boulevard to see the stars on the sidewalk. However, ...
