Radisson Hotel Chatsworth
Travel Blogs from Los Angeles
Well, after a 5 hr delay in Chicago from storms and trying to get us to take off on a plane that was already known to have a faulty engine to getting on a new plane, we are in LA, but missed our connection last night to go from LA to Papeete, Tahiti. :(
The travel agent is working on fixing things and we should finally be on our way later …
... told is to move to another area (for USA residents) and we were in our hire car within an hour !! Yes we bought a Jeep. Silver. Time for Philip to hit the freeway with super navigator Ann and Garman to assist. No messing around says Phillip straight to Venice Beach. What a quirky place with a huge beach. A workout is needed just to reach the water . Delicious lunch at Venice Ale House after a walk along the boardwalk. Time to check in via traffic and ...
In the old days they used to stop in the middle of the journey in remote caravan stops called CARVANSARA for a rest and feeding the camels! Our 20 hours flight from Boston to Melbourne was broken at LAX Sheraton Hotel. This was a double blessing, first to catch up with two of Mourin's high school mates, Fariba and Mojgan and secondly to have a very nice sleep over in a comfortable room. LA's weather as usual is showing off again with a mild temperature and sunny ...
... So lovely! Finally we were able to relax and start our epic vacation. Our camper faced out at the glorious Pacific, and we opened some wine and enjoyed the sunset. I've never been in the Pacific Ocean, so after a bit of wine we all decided it was a grand idea to jump on in. Soooo warm! Ha! Just kidding! Glad we did it though:) love you Steph! Going to miss you majorly! I'm wearing my camping ...
... Mind you we'd just done the 5 hour leg from DC to LA) We took off on the 1st of Aug and landed on the 3rd. Some poor lady on the plane had her birthday on the 2nd so she completely lost a birthday because we were losing time because of the time change.
I had a master plan as to how to manage my sleep schedule so I would be awake and alert when we arrived in Sydney but it all fell apart the moment I got on the plane.

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Hotel Chatsworth Los Angeles
Not on the top of my list
location for us was ok, it was a holiday weekend, but even for the extremely high price, it included no breakfast. staff at the front desk was rather agumenative and not very pleasant to work with. the room was not prepared when we got there and they had to bring towels later. wonder if they really even cleaned the room. the bed was good, tv reception good with adequate movies and television progams. i liked the free wireless internet connection, which i am using while i write this. despite the positives i wouldn't put htis on the top of my list for hotels to stay in the next time i am in the area. oh, if you dont have a credit card, dont plan on staying here, they dont take cash.
I was not very familiar with the area, so I didn't know what to expect. My husband and I were going to a concert at the Hollywood Bowl and decided to take one of the bus shuttles from the Chatsworth Metro Link Station. (Which, by the way, is an absolutely great way to go the concert!) The hotel is less than a mile from the Metro-Link Station. The room was very up to date and spacious. Check in was very fast. We ordered breakfast from room service the next morning. It came on time and was very good.
If you're ever going the the Hollywood Bowl or anywhere in Chatsworth, I definately recommend this hotel.
My boyfriend and I came to this hotel because we were on a trip to Magic Mountain. Ok, it IS about a 30 minute drive to get there, but we read reviews on most of the hotels around that area and were scared off. The room was a good deal, $80/night for 2 people.
Not Bad Not Great
Had a very nice stay AFTER finally getting the correct rooms we booked, hotel staff was nice and friendly but NEVER really seemed to go out of their way to accomadate. Hot Tomato restaraunt had a decent breakfast at a fair price. Great central location for Magic Mountain/Beaches. Rooms as stated were not booked correctly (Thanks Priceline!) and we had to use a sleeper sofa for the extra bed needed. But we would stay here again when the time comes. Paid $84.00 per night (May 2005)
Stayed there for 2 nights Nov 04. Looks good at first, but room was tired, needs a facelift. Tea and coffee was in the bathroom? no mini bar, breakfast not great, scambled eggs ok, but sausage & bacon overcooked, and salsa? Also was groped by night porter, but this may be a bonus for some!
A Very Pleasant Experience
We recently spent 2 nights at the Radison. We got an internet special at $79 a night.Compared to other hotels in the area this is a smoking deal considering the free parking (Hilton charged us $20 a day!). The breakfast buffet was not included with this special but it cost $10 per person and was really quite a good deal for a person on Atkins. The staff was pleasant and accomodating. They don't have bellmen but some maids helped with our luggage. Our room was large, pleasantly decorated & quiet. We loved having the separate shower stall & tub. We had a lovely view of the mountains from our window.The Italian restaurant was okay but a little overpriced for the quallity. Still, it was nice to be able to eat on site after a long day's travel. We would definately stay there again.
This is definitely the place to stay if you are visiting this part of the San Fernando Valley! The hotel is clean, comfortable and well located. The staff was very friendly, especially the front desk attendants. Plus, their rates are usually MUCH less than can be found at Warner Center!
We just returned. Stayed 1 nt 8/8 and returned to stay 2nts 8/14,15. Same room type. Had an excellent internet rate of $79 nt.(prepay) for a deluxe king room. The front desk/cleaning maintenance staff was very nice. The rooms are very large with separate showers/tubs. WiFi Internet Service was $9.95 day(At a neighboring hotel which I have stayed frequently at it is complimentary) Included L.A. Times Newspaper Wake Up calls were on time. We had a huge balcony overlooking the neighboring mountains. Had a few problems. The bathroom lights kept flickering on and off and the sink developed a leak on the last night(8/15) leaving a big puddle after use. The balcony was huge but one problem. It had ONE plastic cracked Rubbermaid chair to sit in and o end tables. You could have easily fit 10-15 people on the balcony. Also there is one snack vending machine in the whole hotel and it was broke. Note: Did not have any problems on 8/8. Still rated the hotel above average especially for the cost vs. size and convenience to where we needed to be along with a nice staff. Decent Italian Restaurant and easy driving/walking distance to other dining spots.
We stayed here for two nights on July 30/August 1. The lobby was beautiful. Our room was a long walk from the lobby and parking and was located adjacent to the pool. The room was on the small side with two double beds. The bathroom was very small with an annoying continuously running toilet (there was a phone in the bathroom though!) Having a sink outside the bathroom was very nice with a family of 4 staying there.
Stayed 2 nights early May 2003. Hotel was clean, nicely decorated and the room was large. Had a King size bed with a small couch and desk. Large bathroom with a separate shower. Buffet breakfast was included in the room rate ($130) and was the usual fare, but had fresh fruit, yogurt and Starbuck's coffee. Would recommend staying there.
