Bottom Line

The all-suite Le Montrose is steps from Sunset Boulevard, but still feels like a tranquil retreat. The 133 smartly decorated and well-stocked suites have gas fireplaces, Keurig coffeemakers, 42-inch flat-screen TVs, and Art Deco-inspired style, plus many units have kitchens and balconies. The hotel's rooftop tennis court and saltwater pool are the most notable amenities, though other perks include a decent fitness center and sauna. Le Montrose's restaurant, Privato, serves all meals daily and offers room service and a California-centric wine list. The hotel has no real scene to speak of, so travelers looking for a bit of on-site nightlife and a Sunset Strip location will prefer the comparably priced The Standard, Hollywood, though its entry-level rooms are much smaller and none have kitchens.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

A tranquil all-suite hotel just three blocks from the lively Sunset Strip that seems miles away -- particularly from the well-tended rooftop pool deck

With spacious suites, a tranquil if slightly staid vibe, and a rooftop pool deck with a seasonal bar and tennis court, Le Montrose suits those who want a break from the traffic and noise of L.A. The hotel encourages seclusion, with an emphasis on "suite service," which is the hotel's marketing term for room service, and a guest-only restaurant hidden at the back of the lobby. The hotel lacks the high design of the nearby Mondrian and Standard, and doesn't have the polish of the swank London, but, for the price, it's a value, much like its sister property, Le Parc Suite Hotel. Service isn't as comprehensive as you might find at those other West Hollywood properties, but it's acceptable, especially considering the price. There's no concierge, but the front desk, which is well-staffed morning, noon, and night, can assist with simple things like restaurant recommendations and transportation arrangements. The residential neighborhood, just three blocks south of Sunset Boulevard, also provides a dose of calm -- but also means at least a short walk to anything outside the hotel.

Location

In a quiet residential area of West Hollywood, three blocks from Sunset Boulevard

Le Montrose is located in a residential section of West Hollywood, three blocks from the Sunset Strip, the mile-and-a-half stretch of Sunset Boulevard known for its iconic rock clubs and night spots (the hotel is a short walk from Whiskey a Go Go,  the Roxy, and Viper Room) and its collection of premier boutiques and restaurants. Touristy destinations like Hollywood Boulevard, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and the celebrity handprints at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre are all within a 10-minute drive. Rodeo Drive and Beverly Hills, an enclave of wealthy living and luxury shopping in the middle of L.A.'s westside, are also 10 minutes away by car, but budget at least a 30-minute driving time to reach Santa Monica and L.A.'s beaches. Depending on traffic, the drive to Los Angeles International (LAX), can take up to 90 minutes.

Rooms

Spacious suites with sunken living areas, gas fireplaces, and huge TVs

Le Montrose's 133 suites are generously sized -- they start at 425 square feet. (This is more space than average for the neighborhood, but if you need even more space, consider Le Montrose's sister property, where suites start at 650 square feet.) All feature upbeat, Art Deco-inspired style, with white sofas, mid-century-style lounge chairs, and sunburst wall mirrors in the sunken living areas. Every unit has a pillow-top bed (or two), a gas fireplace, and a 42-inch flat-screen HDTV with HBO, Showtime, and movies on demand. Some rooms have dedicated kitchen space, while all have at least a Keurig coffeemaker, mini-fridge, and stocked minibar with beer, wine, liquor, and snacks. Most of the suites have a balcony. 

Bathrooms have shower/tub combos, bathrobes, hairdryers, and Gilchrist & Soames toiletries. Housekeeping visits twice every day, and Wi-Fi is free.

Features

Rooftop pool, bar, and tennis court feel far removed from the bustle of West Hollywood

Le Montrose has a good number of leisure facilities at hand. The star of the show is the rooftop area, which contains a heated saltwater pool and a tennis court (rackets and balls available on request). The surrounding pool deck has tables and chairs, loungers, and cabanas, and poolside food and drink service is available through Privato, the hotel's restaurant. Privato is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner exclusively for hotel guests, and while it is handy for its all-day poolside menu and cocktail list -- and 24-hour room service -- there are certainly better options a few blocks away on the Sunset Strip. 

The hotel also has a good-size fitness center with cardio and weight machines, free weights, and a sauna. For those who need to work, there is a business center, as well as a large meeting room that can be partitioned into two spaces. Guests have free use of loaner bikes, and there are coin-operated laundry facilities, in addition to valet laundry service. Wi-Fi is free under the amenity fee, which also covers luggage storage and daily bottled water in the rooms. Parking is valet-only, and it costs a steep fee.
