Farther from the Sunset Strip than sister hotel Le Montrose
The generic all-suite sister property of Le Montrose, Le Parc is a mile south of Sunset Boulevard in a quiet residential West Hollywood neighborhood, a car ride away from most Los Angeles attractions. Its heated rooftop pool and tennis court -- and large rooms with kitchens -- are family-friendly assets, while the on-site restaurant could be better.
This 154-room, all-suite property has no scene to speak of and a mediocre restaurant, but the large rooms with kitchens and the rooftop pool are big assets, particularly for vacationing families.
Much like its sister property, Le Montrose, the 154-room Le Parc is south of the Sunset Strip, in a quiet residential West Hollywood neighborhood. There's no scene to speak of, like you'd find at the Sunset Marquis or the Mondrain, and large suites with kitchens, living rooms, and balconies make it easy to shut yourself in against the clamor of West Hollywood.
The decor of both rooms and public spaces is contemporary, featuring mostly neutral tone furnishings with pops of color in orange throw pillows. Service, while perfectly adequate, doesn't compare with what you'll find at other hotels in the neighborhood, where 24-hour concierges and highly trained restaurant staff are the norm.
The occasional business sit-down happens at the mediocre hotel restaurant but most guests looked to be on vacation, from younger singles and couples to families watching their kids splash in the pool.
South of the Sunset Strip, a short car ride to Hollywood attractions
A few blocks south of Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, the hotel sits one block west of La Cienega Boulevard, a north-south thoroughfare. It's a short drive to Hollywood attractions, and Rodeo Drive is 10 minutes away by car. The hotel's sister property, Le Montrose, is a five-minute drive away.
The Sunset Strip, which has long been known for its music clubs like the House of Blues, the Roxy, Viper Room, and Whisky a Go Go, has gotten significantly more upscale than its strip club and head shop days in the '70s and '80s -- though some seediness remains.
Sunset Plaza, a walkable half-mile stretch of upscale boutiques and restaurants like BLT Steak, Roberto Cavalli, and Catherine Maladrino, is a five-minute drive from the hotel.
The heart of the Hollywood Walk of Fame is three miles away; the Hollywood Bowl concert venue and Universal Studios are both about a 15-minute drive distant.
A drive to Santa Monica and L.A.'s beaches will take at least 30 minutes.
Bob Hope Airport in Burbank is about 15 miles away from the hotel, which can translate to a 45 minute drive in traffic, but it's still a better option than Los Angeles International, as much as a 90 minute drive from the Sunset Strip.
Avoid a pricey cab from the airport by opting for a shared-ride van with a service like SuperShuttle, which costs about one-third as much.
Large rooms have separate sleeping and living areas, as well as kitchens, balconies, and fireplaces.
Suites at the hotel start at 650 square feet, larger than the basic units at the similarly priced Le Montrose, yet smaller than the rooms at the more expensive London. All guest rooms were renovated in 2012, receiving new paint, carpeting, furniture, and linens in varying earth shades. Clean and refreshed the rooms may be, but they are still largely unexciting. Laid out in railroad fashion with unremarkable decor, Studio Suites open into a living-and-dining area, while the bed and bathroom are stepped up behind a blackout shade. Bathrooms are large, with vanities, and are stocked with Gilchrist & Soames toiletries.
Suite have two TVs, a full kitchen, and a walk-in closet.

Some rooms have walk-in closets; all have vanities
Unremarkable breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with better options a short drive away
The hotel's third-floor restaurant, Knoll, has menu items like burgers, salads, and pastas that are perfectly adequate for the price, but better West Hollywood restaurants are a short drive away. The restaurant also caters to pool-goers, with waitstaff running food and drinks up from the kitchen.
Knoll also doubles as the hotel's bar, with six stools and a nice selection of beer, wine, and liquor.
Room service is available throughout the day, but not 24-hours.
