On a leafy residential side street, the Chamberlain is steps from Santa Monica Boulevard and close to the Sunset Strip, bringing in young business types, the fashion–design crowd, and 24-hour party people looking to roam West Hollywood and the Strip. Suites are handsomely tailored in gray and teal, with snappy gray and white Regency-style furniture. All suites have a fireplace and balcony. The work desks are oversize, but the bathrooms are compact. Tech extras include
flat-screen TVs, cordless phones, iPod docks, and CD players. Beds have pillow-top mattresses. You can soak up the sunshine next to the rooftop pool that just added a hopping bar to complement with dramatic city and Hollywood Hills views. The hotel also added a 24-hour fitness center and business facilities as well as a house car that delivers guests within a 3-mile radius of the property.

Whatever this place used to look like, I'm sure that no trace of it remains. The rooms are decorated in shades of taupe, sage and gray, and are much larger than I expected them to be. Fireplaces are also apparently standard. Staff is courteous and receptive, and the restaurant is quite good though the in-room service menu is a little on the limited side. Overall I was exceptionally happy with the Chamberlain and will be coming back.

Oh dear. Once a good value, clean and pleasant place to stay in a quiet leafy neighborhood, the Summerfield WeHo is even more tired than the plot lines on another great from the past, The Simpsons. Threadbare or non-existent carpeting, large enamel chips in the bath tubs and hand basins, sliding doors to balconies that can't be closed properly because they've come out of their tracks, couches with the yellow foam stuffing bursting through the sides,
broken toilets... and that's just from two recent visits in two different rooms. There's a general atmosphere of dowdiness and need for a major refurb. On the positive side, the staff seem to be aware of the state of the place and try to help.

Ubless your finances dictate it, don't stay here! My company put me up at the Summerfield Suites and I had a room with all the amenities, including an ant infestation a non-working a-c unit and an uncomfortable bed. The gym can hardly be called a gym, it is really just 3 pieces of outdated fitness equipment stuffed in a small room. My only good experience with this hotel, was checking out (well, that and the roof-top pool)!
