Historical Traveller Reviews of Residence Inn Beverly Hills Hotel

Perfect stay at the Beverly Hills Residence Inn

from kapj
The room was newly renovated & Marriott's new bed very comfortable. During my stay, the hotel installed a new 32" flat panel LCD TV in every room. WOW!! What a great addition to an already great suite. Loved having a full kitchen & the hotel staff even goes grocery shopping for you. Now that's service at it's best! This is an awesome hotel w/ an exceptional staff! Thank you!!

A Home Away From Home

from HueyEsquire
I NEVER give a 5 out of 5 to anything, but after this experience, a 4 out of 5 just didn't seem to be enough. I had never stayed at a Residence Inn before, but this one in particular will be my choice for long-term stays going forward.

The location is perfect: 5 minutes to Century City, 10 minutes to Westwood, 15-20 minutes to Santa Monica or Venice, and 20 minutes to Downtown.

For those who like shopping (not a personal favorite), you are steps from the heart of the Beverly Hills Shopping District.

There is not a great variety of food in the immediate area, but Factor's Famous Deli is a block East on Pico and it is fabulous, especially if you love authentic Jewish deli food. The rooms feature full kitchens (my room had a refrigerator/freezer with icemaker, a 2 burner electric stove, a microwave, a dishwasher, a sink, and plenty of plates, dishes, cups, glasses, cutlery, and other cooking accessories), so I took advantage of the quaint Jewish market (Pico Glatt Market) directly across the street from Factor's. (Skip the adjacent convenience stores and experience the culture of this neighborhood by checking out this full service, reasonably priced market.)

I've read complaints about the parking fees, but perhaps these folks have not paid to park elsewhere in Los Angeles. At $18 per day, plus tax, the convenience and expedience of the garage and its staff were well worth it. I gladly paid the parking fee and tipped the courteous, friendly valets each time. There is street parking very close to the hotel and the neighborhood appears very safe, so that's an alternative when available.

My room was immaculate. That is very important to me when I travel, so I was not disappointed. Housekeeping was thorough, effective, and almost stealth in their cleaning. Instead of just a "Do Not Disturb" and/or "Please Service" sign, the rooms offer magnets (the doors are metal) that read "Later, Please," "Day Sleeper," and "No Service" to indicate to Housekeeping when, if at all, they should service the room. On several of the days of my stay, I left the room for barely an hour (at different times of day) and returned to find my room serviced in an almost clandestine manner. I was very pleased.

The bed was almost too comfortable (if that is possible). There were plenty of SOFT pillows (I'm a stomach sleeper) and the down comforter was both cozy and light. The bed linens were nice and the towels were soft and plentiful.

The front desk staff was friendly and very helpful. I didn't call upon them much, but when I did, they could not have been more attentive.

I did not indulge in any of the weekday hospitality hours, but I enjoyed the complimentary FULL (not just "continental") breakfast all but one morning. In addition to the typical continental breakfast items one might expect, the breakfast also featured an omelet bar, scrambled eggs, potatoes, french toast, and a wafflemaker with ample pre-poured cups of waffle batter. There was so much to choose from that I could not bring myself to have breakfast anywhere else.

Overall, I was impressed, maybe even shocked, by the Residence Inn Beverly Hills and how much I enjoyed my stay. Friends in Santa Monica and Westwood invite me to crash with them whenever I'm in LA, but this was a much better choice for me. I have, without a doubt, found my home away from home in Los Angeles.

Great Hotel, Great Location

from Michellebell
I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in July and found it to be very nice. The staff were all very friendly and tried very hard to accomodate all requests. The bellman went out of his way to show me every little feature of the room and tell me about the area. The room was great and well equipped with a kitchen, stove, refrigerator, microwave, dishes, and all you would need to cook a meal (if you were so inclined). The hotel will shop for groceries for you with a day's notice, but you can walk to Ralph's grocery store about a block away and get what you will need. Also, there a few places to walk to for dinner, including a Factor's deli and the Fish Grill (made to order casual food) that was so delicious I went there for two night's dinner. I did not attend the social hour, but every evening the hotel puts out one entree with a salad free to all patrons. Breakfast was very busy, but had a good selection and had make your own waffles and made to order omlets. You can even load up your plate and take it back to the room. The bed in the room was GREAT, with a new cushy mattress & fresh new Marriott linens. Granite counters in the kitchen and bath gave the room a high end feel. The staff was so great that when I left my phone charger in the room after check out, they mailed it back so fast I had it before I returned home from my business trip!

Everything you could want in Beverly Hills

from Marius40
I stayed at this property for two nights June 26 and June 27. I had previously attempted to get this property on Priceline, but paid the corporate rate for this stay. The location on the corner of Pico and Beverly is not walking distance to much of anything, however, it is quiet and near enough things by car. One big upside is Factor's Jewish Deli almost directly across the street from the hotel which serves large, delicious, reasonable meals.

The hotel claims to have recently remodeled and I believe it has been. My room (711) was large and clean with all of the usual Residence Inn amenities. I met a guest who has been staying at the hotel for 15 months. He moved to Los Angeles, but after seeing the high rents, decided to go this route and is satisfied.

The hotel offers a lite dinner each night including three kinds of wine and beer. The breakfast selection is the best I have seen including made to order omelettes. The workout room is marginally acceptable with the usual bare basics; i.e. bike, treadmill, universal etc. However, there is a very large indoor hot tub.

According to the hotel staff whom I spoke with, the property is usually close to capacity, and while there were a significant number of guests at breakfast each morning, there was never a wait for anything. By the way, the front desk staff were very accomodating at all times.

The only downside which is completely avoidable is the $18.00 indoor parking. The charge is for self parking or valet. However, the surrounding area is virtually all meter parking which ends at 6:00 p.m. and doesn't begin until 8:00 a.m. the next day. There was plenty of street parking each day within yards of the property and there is absolutely no reason to pay $18.00 unless you are sleeping in late each day.

While the online rates are pricey by some standards, you can easily sleep 4-6 in a room, with all of the available space, and the fact that you can eat two meals there plus the use of a kitchen with all the amenities is hard to beat.

Be aware that if you bid this hotel on Priceline, there is the possibility that you will be upgraded to the Hyatt on Sunset. While I was pleasantly surprised by my stay there, you don't get half of the amenities of the Residence Inn plus you will definitely pay for parking.

Overall, a very nice stay and I would stay here again.

Cheers.

Nice room, good service

from A TripAdvisor Member
They allowed us to check in early, giving us the only room available which was adjacent to the elevator. We said we didn't mind and found it very quiet. The bed was very comfortable, good internet connection, and nice kitchen (but no stove.)

We stayed one night and found that it was convenient to meet friends on "Restaurant Row" for dinner. We tried a new restaurant called "Bridge" which the group had mixed reviews for.

Overall the service, from the front desk to housekeeping was very friendly. Couple things to note: parking is $18 and their free shuttle service is not always available (they were too busy at the time we wanted to go) so make sure to arrange it ahead of time.

Overall, we're very pleased and would stay again.

Immaculate!

from Papaleadfoot
Immaculate; spotless. Evening "happy hour" and breakfast were fine. There are NO smoking rooms with King beds! The King bedded suite is fine, but smokers are out of luck. There are smoking queen bedded rooms. The room is fine, the beds are TINY!! Bottom line is that if you are comfortable is a small bed, the hotel is good value for the money.

Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights with family to attend a conference. The front desk staff were excellent. Room was very clean and comfortable with the kitchen. Continental breakfast and evening social hour refreshments were very good. Location was very safe with closeby grocery store and restaurants. The only bad thing was $18 parking each day. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting LA and like to stay near Beverly Hills.

Staff very rude!!! Ripped off

from A TripAdvisor Member
Had booked this hotel 3 months in advance, wrote and told them that we needed a early check in because we where comming off a international flight, well after 15hours on a plane to the usa and another hour driving time we arrived at 10am to the hotel only to be told that our room was not going to be ready till 2pm, fair enough we all delt with that so we decided to do a little shopping and have something to eat by this time it was 2.20pm we went back to the hotel still our room was not ready!!And to add to that the staff at that point of time were very rude!! So we waited another 1and 1/2 hours in the lobby till they decided to give us a room , we where paying $320 us dollars a night to be treated so rudely and on top of that $18 + 5 in tips for the parking per day..Well if that was not enough they also took $6000 usd from our credit card, but for the entire stay was only $2200 , so this really left us in the learch we could not use our credit card!!! So they really stuffed our holiday...This is the only marriott that i have stayed at that has ever done this i would never recommend this hotel to anyone!!!! Over priced rip off!!!!

Great hotel- but parking will kill you

from apkesh
I am writing this from the hotel, as we just checked in last night. I got this on PL for 3 days at a rate of 70/night. WHen we checked in, the staff at front desk was super nice, no mention of PL (Not that it matters to me anyways), we got a nice room with queen bed. The hotel also looks quite new with comfy bed and free DSL if you broght your lappie with you. The only thing that kinda bites you is the parking- it's 18 dollars!! When I called the reception desk the night before we arrived and asked if there are free street parking, I was told no- I am not sure if that was intentional or just a mistake, but paying 18 just didn't seem right. Howerver, if you drive around you WILL find overnight parking walking distance from the hotel and it looks pretty safe. Oh the breakfast is also very good, not the typical dry cerial and milk, but these guys actually serve continental style breakfast! Hope this helps.

great staff great stay

from juliana84
my boyfriend and i stayed at this hotel in oct 05 for 4 nights, as soon as we got there we were greeted at the reception from a very friendly irish man. he answered any questions we had the rest of our stay. he gave us a room on the top floor with a view of the hollywood sign!!!
the room was one of the best we have stayed in with a really comfy bed and lots of pillows, and it was kept very clean every day, the bathroom was an average size and again very clean. we had a kitchen with a fridge, freezer and microwave and a small living area. hotel was a little bit far out but we didnt mind walking or getting taxis to where we wanted to go.
we went to universal studios hollywood one day which was great, we payed extra for the queue hopping pass which was well worth the money, no waiting in long queues all day, dont miss the studio tour it was fab.
it was great to have such a comfy and clean room after a long day at universal and would reccomend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in los angeles.
oh and never saw any homeless people anywhere near the hotel let alone in it!

Top Local Tips for Los Angeles

Universal Studios Get there early. Use the more expensive but very handy parking. Get front of line tickets if you are going at peak time. It made our trip so much better. Lunch times are hell in all the eateries in the park! Very busy and nowhere to sit! Try going out to Universal walk - we wish we had!! You do get very wet on the Jurrasic park ride! Revenge of the Mummy was fab!

Beware of just because a resturaunt in LA is popular dosnt mean its food is worth eating. LA is full of people who will eat where ever a magazine tells them. so beware of where the celebs are eating!

LA Adventure There is nothing better than location, the attractions most likely will be there
