Celebs like Johnny Depp appreciate this swanky hotel for its secluded cottages, bungalows, and understated suites and penthouses. For those who don't grace the cover of Vanity Fair, service can be frosty. The interior is 1920s style, although some of the decor looks dated rather than vintage. The Wi-Fi throughout the hotel means that you can surf the Net while seated on the hotel's always busy landscaped terrace.

My husband wanted me to try this place while we visited our daughter at school. What can I say? this hotel is a complete joke. Why celebrities would pick this place over the Peninsula or Regent Beverly Wilshire is beyond me, and the rates are just as expensive. We stayed in a $500.00 a night room and felt that it was in some need of refurbishment, the staff also had a bad attitude, it seemed like we were a bother to them. We checked out after one
night and moved to the Regent which was only $395 a night, and like a different world.

If you love classic films and Old Hollywood, you'll love staying here, as my wife and I did recently. For $335 a night, it was the experience I expected: fantastic ambiance, helpful and attentive staff, large guest room with some great Deco furniture and furnishings. I know the reviews posted here are decidedly "mixed", but for reference sake, we were there this past Labor Day weekend, 8/31 through 9/2, 2002. I'd go back to stay there in a heartbeat.

I loved staying here. Agreed, the rooms are not extra large or fancy, but I felt everything was done just right to make it elegant and homey at the same time. Terrific service, unique and fun atmosphere.
