Downtown Los Angeles

In the beginning of the month of October, a few of my colleagues, their friends, & I went to see L.A. Opera's production of Georges Bizet's “Carmen” at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Admiring the area during the quiet night after the show, we agreed upon exploring Los Angeles in the near future to learn more about its history.   …

Dr Phil

At toying with the idea over the last couple of days we decided to go to a filming of the Dr Phil show at the Paramount Studio this morning. We decided to leave with plenty of time to ensure we would get in. Luckily we did as there were just a few seats available for general admission ticket holders. This experience was much different to the one at …

Back to our usual early starts, we were up before the sun rose this morning to get to the bus station for our 07:00 departure to San Diego. After a busy couple of days we both took the opportunity to sleep for almost the entire two and a half hour journey to the southernmost city of California. We were thrown slightly on arrival as the bus station …

Wanting to wind down towards the end of our adventure we took the rare opportunity for a small sleep in this morning. After a very relaxed start to the day we eventually got moving around 11:00 when we checked out of our hotel to move to a more classy residence where we would see out the rest of our time in Los Angeles. Checking in at the …

Los Angeles - Welcome to Tinseltown!

As a teenager I’d listened to records by bands like Motley Crue who had sang about Los Angeles, and back then it had sounded so great. Hollywood, Santa Monica Boulevard, Pasadena, Venice Beach, all names familiar to millions around the world, and they were all written on freeway signs as Angela and I headed into the heart of the city. “ …

    It is definitely one of my favourite buildings in down town. The film industry used to come here for awards night. The old lobby with its staircase is just phenomenal. My colleagues & I got to rest here during our day exploration of the city.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Millennium Biltmore Hotel Los Angeles

    Ok for business - not for a vacation

    from

    The public areas of this hotel are indeed grand and gorgeous. Very well restored and kept up. For that reason alone I would recommend going for a drink. As far as a place to stay, it is fine for business in the downtown area, but not a good place for tourists. The nearby area is downright dangerous and extremely depressed. The Water Grill, which is nearby, looked good but a bowl of clam chowder was $12.00 - entrees were in the 30+ range. I did not think the facilities of the hotel were all that great, other than the bar, and it is an outrage that they charge $7.00 on top of your room rate to use the pool and sauna. The pool is small and the jacuzzi holds three people - both were full of kids when I went to look. The service was mediocre. It was pretty quiet on the Sunday afternoon when I showed up, and the staff were very informal - joking and flirting with each other. I thought about upgrading to their "club level" which has supposedly been renovated, but found those rooms just as worn down as the rooms in the rest of the hotel, and the lounge was not that nice. Overall I had a feeling that the room was not very clean - probably because the furnishings, etc.

    Gorgeous Hotel

    from

    This hotel is gorgeous...lobby very impressive and the bar scene elegant. The room I had was nice..corner room on the 7th floor.

    However, the carpeting and furnishings could have used some attention...all a bit dated. The TV was tiny and no mini bar. The carpeting was frayed and scratches all over the tables beside the bed.

    The bathroom was nice, large with a window that opened. Toilet was REALLY loud. Pretty hotel, but for the $, I expected to be much nicer.

    It definatlely needs some attention...hallways were stinky...

    Movie star glamour at the Biltmore

    from

    If you want to expierience a taste of old world Hollywood glamour the Biltmore serves it up royally. Never left the hotel from Friday afternoon until late Sunday morning. It was the perfect splurge. After checking-in I booked a manicure/pedicure in the Aveda salon. Others were getting fantastic hairdos for big nights out! When I was eating in the lovely fountain atrium room, there was also a beautifully presented High Tea offered. The evening brought a constant parade of designer clothes through the halls and lobby that was like a live issue of Vogue or Elle. Unable to get tickets for my own night out at the new Disney Concert Hall, I strolled through the grandeur exploring the many photos of past Oscar Award Ceremonies and dignitaries visits. Actually not too much was missing from my "step back in time" to a almost forgotten world of elegance and grace.

    History and Room Great!

    from

    My husband and I stayed here for two days during a get-away trip to LA.

    Beautiful hotel with lots of history

    from

    We recently spent 4 nights at the Biltmore. The room was small but lovely and the beds comfortable. This hotel has a lot of history and is very well preserved. Our room had a limited view of Pershing Square where the homeless slept at night. The hotel itself was very nice but the location was not the best for walkers.It was a little scary on the weekend when there was not a soul around except for the homeless. The bus stop 2 blocks away was like a bad movie; ladies selling cigarettes, men fishing cans out of the trash and of course panhandlers. On Monday when we left the hotel and headed toward the financial district it was a different world. Lots of restaurants and shops and working people everywhere. As I prefer to wander by foot and sight see around town, I would probably stay further uptown next time, but the hotel itself was something to marval at.

    A Treasure of a Hotel!

    from

    I just returned from four days at this beautiful hotel. (August 2003) The hotel is truly stunning, with Hollywood history and afternoon tea every day. The staff was courteous, friendly, and helpful. Every request was handled efficiently and with a smile. The room, though small, was lovely, well arranged and very comfortable. There is a daily, but reasonable, fee for the health club, and a visit to the pool, or the jacuzzi and sauna is a must! The location downtown, which concerned me when I booked there, turned out to be one of the best things about it. It is adjacent to the terrific Los Angeles library and lovely little parks created in commercial areas, some with water gardens where one can sit with a latte. The Museum of Contemporary Art is an interesting (short) walk up a hill. A film crew was shooting a film as I passed by. I would return to this little jewel in a heartbeat!

    A Horrible Experience

    from

    Booked a room for my son & fiance over the phone as a birthday present.

    Beautiful. We were treated like royalty.

    from

    Enjoyed our stay. They treated us very well. I can't say enough about the beauty of this building. I actually asked if we were allowed to take pictures, because I felt like we were in a museum.

    Excellent Service and Treatment

    from

    I stayed at the Biltmore over the labor day long weekend after booking a relatively inexpensive room on expedia. They gave me a free upgrade to club class because the hotel was not busy. The room was big, clean, very nice and the club service was the best i had ever experienced... great club area and facilities, great food, breakfast etc. The service was excellent and the room was great. Would definitely return when back in LA.

    For such a beautiful hotel, the service sucked !

    from

    My girlfriend and I stayed here in May, 2002.
