Most recent review:

What I liked:

The included continental breakfast was very good (although it was sneaky that the omelet and waffle station--which were located seamlessly next to the rest of the food--were an extra unadvertised $5 per item each). However, without the TabletPlus benefit of getting this for free, the breakfast would have been $26/person, which is too expensive. The bed was very comfortable. The best in-room coffee (espresso) I've ever had in a hotel.

What the hotel could do better:

Despite having as many wait staff as customers, it took 30 minutes to get a very poorly made Moscow Mule at 4 p.m. There is no bar until 6, so you have to go through this strange restaurant set-up to get a drink that was made somewhere in a basement. Happily, TabletPlus allowed our first drink to be complementary because when the check came, I saw my glass of decent cabernet was $28. The staff was nice, but definitely not super enthused about being there. Upon registration, I had to sign a release saying I would not smoke, have pets, have more than 4 people in my room at any time, bring alcohol into my room from a non-hotel source, nor take any pictures(?!). I suppose they've had problems in the past, being on the Sunset Strip, but I felt like I was in the hands of a control freak.

Hotel Description

In Hollywood the line between history and kitsch is so fine as to be practically non-existent. But one way or another the Sunset Tower manages to land on the right side of the line. In the latter years of the golden age this Art Deco apartment tower was home to the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Frank Sinatra; and while today the mid-century atmosphere is still in place, it’s no museum — there’s nothing faded about the newly renovated Sunset Tower’s sober, earth-toned interiors, and it’s not collectors or autograph hounds but bona fide Hollywood players who frequent its halls today.

The décor is seemingly tailor-made for the golden afternoon sunlight that brought the film business to LA in the first place. It’s not quite high luxury, but it’s pleasantly upscale, with high-end Egyptian linens and Kiehl’s bath products. And if there’s any incongruity, it’s between the classic elegance of the Sunset Tower and the very modern inelegance of the Sunset Strip. It’s a locale that’s best enjoyed with a raised eyebrow, and then escaped, with a trip to the Sunset Tower’s day spa or to the Tower Bar and Restaurant, a clubby, classic eatery on the site of what used to be the apartment belonging to the gangster Bugsy Siegel.

How to get there:

Sunset Tower Hotel is a 30-minute drive from Los Angeles International Airport, but the trip can take over an hour in traffic. Valet parking is available for $36 USD per night.
