Residence Inn By Marriott Beverly Hills
Travel Blogs from Los Angeles
We arrived around midnight PST. We anticipated the hardest part being getting Caitlynn off the plane. If her past record held true, we guessed she would probably throw an enormous fit. She has assured us she has 'thrown away' the little girl that does that, and now she is almost seven so we don't need to worry. Getting to LA was long, and tiring, …
Los Angeles & Long Beach
Today we decided to skip the wonderful breakfast and had our own left over granola, trail mix and banana instead. Much more civilised. We also watched back to back repeat Ice Road Truckers until 10!
We planned to go to Long Beach to visit the Queen Mary as Tina had seen that advertised …
Touring Los Angeles
So today we are ready to visit LA after a good rest and gazing at the wonderful view from our room. Had to unplug the fridge, sounded like an Airbus engine in the room, but otherwise good. Breakfast was manic though with people everywhere trying to get their bits of toast and waffles. We might skip …
Pismo Beach to Los Angeles
Pismo is a nice place, we'd stay here again. Lovely long beach for nice walks and plenty of sunshine (today at least). After last night’s good meal we had high hopes for breakfast which wasn’t too bad. Watched the oil spill news again, that is really making people annoyed here – …
Off to LA for a week to work in our Cali Office.

Historical Traveler Reviews Residence Inn By Marriott Beverly Hills Los Angeles
Wow what a great hotel, slept like a baby.
We really enjoyed our stay here, and I got the room for a steal on priceline at $60/night.
The rooms are great, come equipped with stoves, utensils, a fridge and a microwave. But the best thing is the bed, it was like sleeping on a cloud, I stayed in 10 hotels this holiday and nothing came close to this bed. Also the service was great, the desk staff were terribly polite and courteous.
Another great thing was the buffet breakfast. They had waffle makers, cereals, coffee, soft drinks, juices, toast, french toast, everything !
I didn't park in the garage, it was $18/day. But its not too bad to park for free in the sidestreets off Pico, about a 3 minute walk away.
The location is great, lots of delis, kosher restaurants and its quiet.
For those of you who are expecting to be on Rodeo Drive then go spend $450 a night at the Four Seasons.
Myself and my boyfriend booked into this hotel for five nights after a mix up with the one we previously booked. We arrived late afternoon after a flight from San Francisco and the hotel staff were very friendly, helpful, and sympathetic after a long day and stressful encounter at the previous hotel.
The hotel itself was excellent. It was very clean. I called on our way from the airport to tell the front desk we were a family of five and we needed sleeping arrangements for 5. We booked a studio. Sophia saved us the only studio that could comfortably accomodate 5 people. It was ready when we checked in 15-20 min. later. The room was well appointed, new and clean with a full kitchen. The bed was really comfortable.
My husband, three children (ages 5, 2 and 11 mos) and I stayed here for one day. It was all we could stand... it is not in Beverly Hills, but in a trashy part of town miles away from Rodeo Drive. Not a place I would take my family for a walk and as far from shopping as you can get. I take that back-you could shop at all the 99, 98, 97 and 96 cent stores-they're all over the place!
We stayed ther for one night on 2/4/05. The hotel's location is very convenient for visiting Beverly Hills, UCLA and Westwood. The room was clean and comfortable. We liked the free wireless internet access in the room. There were some PCs in the lobby area for accessing the internet as well. We also used the kitchen for cooking some late night snacks. The breakfast was pretty good - you get to make your own waffles too. They also made it quite easy for you to take food and drinks back to your room.
I shared a two bedroom suite with two other people last thanksgiving, for two nights. My credit card was used, and on checkout the bill was about $645. When I got my credit card statement the charge had been increased to about $952.
Just finished my second week at this hotel and I will not be staying there for the third week, partly because of convenience and partly because of the facility and value (or lack of...). The best thing about this place? The free high-speed wireless internet access. Other than that? Free beer, free breakfast. You can get a much better room and hotel for not much more money (most of the time) elsewhere in Century City...at the Century Plaza, Park Hyatt or St. Regis. First week my King Studio was adequate but dark. Looked into an interior patio area where the sun never shines. The bed was comfortable, bathroom was adequate size, two closets. Week two was worse. No King non-smoking suites so I got a Queen smoking studio...bad news...the room smelled, had mold on the carpet around the air conditioner, dirty (stained) sofa and carpet, very soft mattress (old?), much lower quality pillows, linens and comforter than in the King room. Good thing? They lowered my rate since I could not get into the reserved room. This hotel is fairly convenient to BH and Century City. RE the previous reviewer, I did not see a problem with vagrants in the lobby but the breakfast was very crowded. Evening free food was soggy fried stuff but beer was cold and free. Some good restaurants nearby but it is a questionable neighborhood though I never felt unsafe. Try Delmonico's for good drinks, good staff, good food. Overall, not a quality version of Residence Inns. Be careful what price you pay here before you look elsewhere.
I am a female and travel alone on business and was appalled at this hotel. It is not in Beverly Hills but in LA which makes all the difference. The hotel staff not only allowed homeless men to hang out in the lobby but they encouraged it by giving them tokens for free coffee. These people were filthy and frightening. The air conditioner dripped all night and kept me awake and they did not fix it when I complained the next day. The free breakfast and nightly snack is a free-for-all-with people knocking each other down to get to the food. A very low-class and unsafe experience. (I later found out homeless people are a huge problem in this part of town. They are not "allowed" in Beverly Hills so they camp out near Santa Monica instead. Don't go to the Santa Monica beaches at night. Very dangerous.)
Perfect Stay at the Residence Inn Bev Hills
I cannot recomend Marriott Residence Inn enough to anyone coming to visit LA. The people at the front desk could not do enough to make me more cofortable or feel more at home. Take it from someone who travels A LOT, this hotel really knows how to take care of you. Plus why pay 125+ bucks to stay in a tiny room when you can have a gigantic suite with views of Downtown LA and the Sunset Strip WITH a kitchen (as I did)? The free beer at night did not hurt either. Oh - and I think I am in love with the super cute manager that floats around the lobby chating with everyone!
