London Worst HollywoodPosted Oct 14, 2014
Pros: The rooftop deck.
Cons: To not book several events on a single evening and NEVER allow music that loud in your common areas.
Location: Amarone is a wonderful Italian restaurant just up from the hotel on Sunset.
We stayed here a few years back and had an amazing experience so we naturally booked here again. We couldn't wait to enjoy a drink on the rooftop deck beside the fire pit. However, that was not a possibility. As it turns out, the hotel has become an "event hotel" we were told. On Saturday there were 3 parties taking place. A wedding party, a bar mitzvah, and a private event at the fire pit. The hotel was basically overrun with people. The common areas were hot, noisy, and crowded. While you could get to the pool the music was so loud that there was no way to enjoy it and the fire pit was off limits due to a private party. So, we went back to our room hoping to enjoy a nice evening together. That wasn't possible because the bass from the music was so incredibly loud in our room we couldn't relax and talk. We called the manager (who was very helpful) and complained. She said the music would be off at 10:00 and would have them turn it down. After several more calls, they finally moved us to another room which was OK for about 15 minutes until the music started up again. More calls and it finally stopped around midnight. The next morning I called Expedia and complained and a full refund was issued and the hotel manager personally apologized. However, our stayed was still ruined. We booked for 2 nights (Saturday & Sunday) but only stayed for a single night. Never, ever again. We moved to Sofitel and had a WONDERFUL experience the next day.

Classy hotel in central locationPosted Oct 6, 2014
The London was one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. It was my wife's 50th birthday, we wanted somewhere to relax for a week but close to the action of Hollywood etc. This hotel is perfectly situated to experience the best LA has to offer. Staff we're friendly and efficient, our room was huge, spotlessly clean and the bathroom was amazing with a huge bath and double shower! The complimentary breakfast was outstanding with fresh coffee, breads, smoked salmon, fresh fruit and cereals. A great start to the day. We were able to cover a lot of ground on foot although they all thought we were nuts! We even walked all the way to Santa Monica one day. Beverly Hills only 45 mins on foot. If I had one criticism, the gym seems to have been a bit of an afterthought. It was in a dull windowless room on the second floor...not very appealing. It would be amazing if they used some of the space on the vast roof garden for the gym, with the panoramic views over LA and Hollywood. We're saving up to go back to the London next year! A great trip.

Absolutely FabulousPosted Sep 19, 2014
Pros: The attentiveness and courteousness of the staff and the accessibility to top restaurants and spa services on the premises.
Cons: Upgrade of the television and satellite services would be a plus.
Location: There's a delightful book store a block and a half from the hotel on Sunset Boulevard called, "Book Soup" that is an amazing store once you enter.
From the valet to the check-in, staff was attentive and conscientious to my every need and they were there before I had a moment to think about asking. The hotel's entrance and lobby are exceptionally maintained and the restaurants and gift shop are tremendous. Arriving at the room was a delight for tired eyes. The ambient lighting, modern fixtures, mini bar and refrigerator are everything anyone could ask for. The highlight of the stay was the bed and the bathroom. One of the most comfortable beds and pillows for a rode-hard wearied body and for unwinding, a very large, deep bathtub and huge double-shower that would relieve anyone's day of stress. The hotel supplies all you could ever need. Highly recommend a stay here.

Terrific stay. Friendly staff great spacePosted Sep 14, 2014
Pros: The design, large well lit bathrooms, great robes, business centre in my room.
Small issues came up that were dealt with immediately. Room was large with perfect amenities. The included breakfast in a beautiful dining room may have been the best part. Loved the stay. Will go back.

5 Star all the wayPosted Aug 28, 2014
Pros: Location and excellent service
Everything was perfect from check in to check out. We arrived early for our Silver Wedding celebrations and we were upgraded to a room which was ready. The rooms are spacious and extremely clean and are equipped with everything you need. The bathroom was massive and the shower had two shower heads and one hand held shower spray which made showering a joy. My one bug bare with ordinary hotels is cleaning carts littering the hallways but at The London we never saw a single cart. The cleaners use portable work stations which I have only seen once before and is an excellent concept. Valet is on the high side but the service made it worth every penny. The roof top pool and bar provide an excellent view and the service was wonderful. The cold buffet breakfast was complimentary and had every thing needed to get you started for the day. The reception staff are extremely efficient and polite and my one fault, which did not stop me from rating this a 5, was that I called the concierge twice from my room and he put me on hold on both occasions. I called him as I was in a rush to get an answer so hung up and called front desk who dealt with my questions immediately. My wife and I can not wait to return to this 5 star heaven.

Luxury and comfortable experience in Beverly HillsPosted Aug 27, 2014
Pros: Rooftop bar and pool is perfect. The city view from the hotel room was also perfect even if it is noisy during daytime. Staff members are the top.
Cons: All furniture and finish are a bit old. it needs to be renovated shortly.
Location: Very nice location from LAX, coffee shops and restaurants are in walking distance, and near to a shopping mall and famous restaurants.
Overall, I strongly recommend to stay this hotel. It may not be a family friendly hotel, but you may feel like you are living in Beverly Hills during your stay. Pool is excellent for kids and lovers. Complementary breakfast and internet made us be comfortable than any other luxury hotels. Staff members are more than perfect. All guests in this hotel are super trendy. However, it is about to be out of dated. They need renovation in 2-3 years.

Fabulous Hotel!Posted Aug 25, 2014
Cons: An omelette bar at breakfast.
Location: See above.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat. This hotel is impeccable and geared to adults. The staff are amazing, the overall ambience is lovely and the rooms are huge, clean and very well appointed. The roof pool deck has a great view day and night. The location is great for restaurants, shopping and close to many attractions yet far enough away from the tourist areas. There's a feeling of walking home from dinner through a neighborhood rather than a tourist area or downtown centre. The Concierge team is the best I've ever encountered.
