I really enjoyed staying at this hotel.  I was here for 11 nights and I found it to be very comfortable for my extended stay.  The room was pretty big, the bedding was super soft, the staff was friendly and the free breakfast was good.  I also thought my room was very clean and they even did my dishes every day.  I liked the smell of the shampoo, conditioner and lotion, too.  The location is maybe not in the middle of everything but it was quiet and a nice place to return to after work.  I didn't like having to pay so much to park but I got quite addicted to the valet.  And, the hotel is actually in short driving distance to many of the places I went for dinner, shopping, etc.  The workout room was a little small but it did have lots of towels and a water cooler, as well as personal TVs on the machines.  And, I liked having two flat-screen TVs in my room - one in the bedroom and one in the living room.  I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

My husband and I stayed here for the location.  Very close to Rodeo Drive and walking distance to a nice grocery store.  We were able to regularly utilize our kitchen in our room.  But towards the end of our trip, we found out that there is a huge breakfast served in the lobby.  Oh well.  Anyway, the staff was extremely pleasant and always helpful for all of our needs.  We would definitely stay there again.

Came here thanks to Priceline. Paid $100/night, and was very happy. Included was a hot buffet breakfast, make your own waffles, and the place had its own kitchen, sofa, and flat LCD large TV. My parents were happy, and they even had two computers and printers at the bottom floor, all for free. The staff was especially helpful. Being a little cheap, we didn't park our car in the lot ($20/night), so we just parked the car in the neighborhood, a couple blocks away. It's also a great lcoation--close to restaurants, shops, and much of West LA. Best of all was the view from our room, the top floor, with a nice view of LA.

Had relatives stay here on and off for the past three yrs. Very good hotel. Clean and very reasonably priced considering Rodeo Drive is only a few block walk.  Front desk agents are very good too as are the ladies that serve the complimentary breakfast each morning. A very nice hotel with an even better staff!   Recommned it!

i like staying in residence inns because their rooms are like mini-condos rather than just a hotel room.  service was excellent (extremely helpful and efficient), room was clean ( the only qualm i had about the room was that the sofa bed mattress was flat and the AC was a bit difficult to control) and the location just fine (we had a car, but if we were to walk around, i dont think there is too much to see in its vicinity).  i was really impressed with the free breakfast. free breakfast at hotels (to me, at least) are typically composed of muffins, bagels.  this was a full-on breakfast with eggs, french toast, sausages, cereal, drinks, coffee, make-your-own waffles, fruit.  i will most definitely return!

We had three rooms for one night.  The place is centrally located with plenty of restaraunts, kosher deli's, and shops close by.  Valet and parking in general was bad.  Most of the Residence Inn's that I've stayed at have a private self parking lot situated right next to the hotel.  Rooms are clean, up to date, and come with all the appliances.  I would probably stay here again if I need something on short notice.

Wow, I cant believe this is a Residence Inn. What a nice, clean hotel in a fabulous location. The lobby is great - huge TVs and small bar w/beer and wine (rare for any hotel of this type), comfortable for working w/colleagues and great weekday breakfast (weekend breakfast wasn't as good, but theres a Great coffee shop next door) walking distance to Rodeo Drive and great food options on Beverly Drive. Rooms are clean, spacious and made it easy to work.  I would definitely stay here again!

I was very satisfied with the amenities of our room. However, there was only one elevator working at the time of my stay, and parking was not free.

I had quite a comfortable stay here.  The beds are wonderful. The rooms spacious.  The full kitchen complete with dishwasher pots, pans and silverware was very helpful. The free wine at happy hour was one of my favorite things, also the friendly and extremely helpful staff was amazing.  Every single request I made was accomodated.  The jacuzzi is as big as a small swimming pool and really hot. The exercise room is decent.  I really enjoyed my stay here. It is also close to the santa monica busline which can take you to the beach for 75 cents. What a deal compared to 35 for a cab.  I think that this hotel is a great value.

Great place to crash if you want to be on a budget... ALTHOUGH, keep in mind you are a mile or two from Rodeo Drive area and not really around anything to do.  Great little hotel with good workout facility and rooms.  STAY HERE before thinking about staying across the street at the Crowne Plaza which is a let down to say the least.  There is a grocery store and drig store around the corner as well as a coffee bean...

As far as I'm concerned, hospitality is the name of the game in the hotel/lodging business. After waiting 15 minutes outside in the dark for the hotel shuttle to pick me up from my office building, I called the hotel only to find out that the ride I scheduled was not coming. What a nightmare! There are so many things wrong with this Residence Inn, but it mostly comes down to inattentive employees who do not take pride in their work. They consistently fail to care for me as a regular business travel guest. I am totally disgusted as the shuttle has failed me on more than one occasion. In my opinion, this Marriott is the picture of POOR SERVICE. While there are some excellent staff members at this location, the bad ones ruin the experience more often than not. Without seeing some noticeable changes, I would not honestly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Stayed one night. Hotel was full.

- Staff very friendly
- Parking very expensive - valet only - $22 PLUS parking tax of 2.50.
- Parking very tight. Entrance is under the building. Low clearance.
- Valet staff did about as well as expected with the cramped parking area.
- Room nice.
- Nice lobby.
- Pillows way too soft - all air - put your head on it and sink all the way to the mattress.
- Free breakfast only so so. Some hot food. Small eating area.
- Hotel is in a nice area.
- Not inexpensive and when you add on $22 room tax, $22 parking, 2.50 parking tax, (that's almost $50 over room rate) you're in an expensive room.
- I would try to find something else next time.
- Only 4 stars because of parking and taxes.

I have a special place in my heart for Residence Inns.. lived in one for 6 months back in the day.

This was "ok" RI-quality with a decent location in the BH.  Only a few complaints.  For one night it was kind of steep - parking especially.   Also, there was a strange stain on the headboard.... grossssss.  Someone decided it had to be Pledge.  "Look at the spray pattern!"  hahahaha.  

Too bad we weren't hanging around BH for the weekend... our cab fares were exorbitant.  Also, according to one of our cab drivers, the intersection of Pico and S Beverly Drive (where this hotel is) does not exist.

Great staff here. I had to spend most of the daytime by my lonesome and had NO experience with the LA area. The concierge was MOST helpful and polite, gave great suggestions and directions. They went out of their way to print Google Maps directions for me many days in a row. THANKSS!

Continental breakfast every morning was sweeeeet. They had decent typical selection, but it actually tastes good. The lady makes a mean omelette.

Rooms are CLEAN and comfy and quiet. Fully loaded with kitchen, fridge, and huge tv. Free internet computers in the lobby. Garage to park your rental car at a price (with valet if you prefer). I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here.

Super close to Rodeo Drive and all its glory.

I pretty much lived at this Residence Inn for 5 months when I was traveling for work and when I finally moved to LA, I felt like I was moving out of an apt. I was so sad to leave!

The staff here is so amazingly nice, except for the valet boys, who I would qualify as just short of friendly. On the list of things I really enjoyed:
1. The staff. They all knew my name and would say hi to me and talk to me whenever they saw me. I even started getting my packages and mail delivered here because I was almost never home.
2. The food. Breakfast every morning and appetizers/light dinner in the early evening. The food was very good quality for hotels and I never got sick of it.
3. The service. Good service. 'nuff said.
4. The location. Now that I live in LA, I can appreciate how nice the location really is. I liked being in a convenient location within the city, close to Beverly Hills and close to a lot of restaurants. I even walked to Ralphs when I was staying there.

I'm a big fan of Residence Inns in general. This one is definitely one of the nicer ones I've stayed at but they all kind of have the same feel. The rooms are clean, the location is good, staff is nice, and the food is good. I was working in Century City at the time so the drive was 5-10 min. For tourists/visitors, there's not much in terms of walking to tourist spots, but it's a pretty good mid-point seeing how you pretty much have to drive everywhere in LA anyways. (maybe 25 min to Santa Monica, 25 min to downtown)

The parking lot is a little hard to find, especially if it's your first time. Also, the gym is small and out-dated, but I didn't mind just running on the treadmill. Parking is pricy at $17/day but parking is typically hard to find in that area so maybe it's somewhat justified and on par for other hotels in the area.

Whenever you come to visit LA, nowadays anyways, its always a balancing act finding a place in a nice safe area while not paying more than you want, and for the "most" part this place is ideal.

We took a gamble using Priceline and let them pick our hotel within a star rating we wanted to stay within. When this place came up in "Beverly Hills" we were shocked it was available for the price we put in. We get there and find out real fast why it was within our price range.... underground parking. Yes, the budget killer of all vacation trips. Find out parking is $20/night! Me being budget conscious tried to get creative with parking somewhere on the street but no place was found I thought was safe to leave the rental car so no choice but eat crow. Once you get past the shock of the parking rate you will love the place. The lobby is very clean and nice, and the staff was efficient and nice. The rooms are basically mini studios so you get a mini kitchen, nice sized LCD TV, couch (that lets out to a bed), table, bed, internet, and not too bad views of the city. The only thing I didnt like about the room was the bed was very hard. I stayed with a friend and slept on the couch and the couch was softer than the bed so that was a minor distraction for them. But other than that the room was point on. The hotel also offers a small but decent exercise room and a HUGE hot tub that is built like a swimming pool but feels like a hot tub... very nice. I loved the fact that it stays open 24/7 so if your up late and get the urge head up there and enjoy the perk. Location is perfect as your close to major highways and not too far from of course Rodeo Drive and about 10 minutes from other main attractions like the Walk of Fame.

Overall, I would definitely stay here again, expensive parking and all, since if you use Priceline effectively your still paying what you would on avg in LA but your actually in a nice, safe Beverly Hills hotel enjoying a place that makes you feel like you made William Shatner proud.

Rooms are nice, service ok. Breakfast times are inaccurate, so check if you have a meeting to get to early in the AM. $27.25 to park your car per night (inclusive of tax). Guest elevators serve as Service elevators, this causes huge delays when you are on the 7th floor. Called bellman to pick up bags, waited 20 minutes, called back and was told he was helping another family and it will be another 20 minutes - short staffed.  Slightly overpriced for what you get. The area is fantastic though - close to everything.

I actually just stayed here last night and it was much better than I thought it would be! At first I was like... hmm the location is so-so and it's not really near the hip places... also it costs about ~$275 with parking in this kind of location! What an outrage, but we actually got a great suite.  I don't know if they bumped us up because we have Elite status.  We got this huge suite with a fully loaded kitchen.  There was two FULL bathrooms when there was only one bed.  The couch was a pull out bed must have been the reason.  There is one flat screen TV where the couch and kitchen is.  The other one is in the bedroom.  

I was surprised by the size and you can look into a small little garden-ish area.  Maybe you can walk pets there?  Which would be convenient to some.  They also have two computers downstairs and a printer, which is not bad.  The only thing was this creepy guy came to hit on us when we were using it.  Parking was $22 a night, which is kind of high but what can you do in LA.  SIGH!

Still, not a bad hotel in size but of course we got lucky and got one of the bigger suites.  Hopefully your stay will be just as enjoyable! ^_^

Staying here was fine. it's been leaving that's been the problem. I have been trying to get a copy of my receipt from this hotel for three weeks, and each time I leave a voicemail or talk to a different person, I'm informed it will be taken care of and it still hasn't. I need to expense this at work and this hold up is causing me such a headache. Get your stuff together, Residence Inn! it isn't hard to send an email.

I have stayed here four times - all long visits.  The hotel rooms are spacious and has nice kitchen in room. The breakfast is nice, but crowded. Internet isn't too slow (during the day). Self parking is fine just go to top floor (level H) for easy hotel access. The 4th floor smells like smoke in hallway but not in room - although on my last day here, as I was leaving, it smelled fresh. The pillows don't smell very fresh all the time - I recommend bringing your own pillow.

The inside rooms are dark and face other rooms (odd numbers) the outside rooms (even) face the road but it's not too loud and you can use ac unit for background noise.

The toiletries dry out my skin and scalp, so bring your own if sensitive... There is a store down the street. Mattress is comfortable. Microwave is super powered - use caution! Try not to get a room by the ends of hall near exit because the door slamming can keep you awake :(  ....it was okay overall - comfortable and few major problems. Also - there is a free shuttle that will take you anywhere within 3 miles (although the in-room hotel booklet says 5 miles, the front desk says 3 miles) - it is convenient. My favorite parts - free breakfast, free wifi, and kitchen is there if you want to make your own food or store leftovers.  Oh, and you get a free bag of popcorn in your room with the coffee/tea!

One time after staying here I had bad bug bites - maybe from previous persons pets in suite - (I believe they are fleas since I mysteriously brought home fleas after this stay and I don't have any pets, etc.)... I'd recommend a pure room if you have allergies or don't like mystery bites.  - PS: I have NO PETS in my home.  

Update - I am giving this hotel ONE star because of the FLEAS.  Although I did not get fleas on every visit - the visit where I did get fleas was the most painful experience ever!!!  It took over two weeks to get rid of the fleas that I brought home from the hotel and I had exposure to awful flea killing chemicals that I needed to treat my home, in addition to the itchy bites and scars left!  Before the battle with the fleas, I would have given this hotel three stars, but after the battle of the fleas - definitely one star.  Use caution.

Yet another place I worked.  My fellow employees were always SUPER nice.  Most places friendly=smiling and eager to help.  Here I think these people may just want to hang out with you.  That's a useful skill when the place is filled with crazy long-term clientele.

And did you know there's a bar in this place?  I know, and I know you don't know because I worked it and never saw any of you.

After the nightmare that is the Crowne Plaza Beverly Hills...this place feels like a 5 star resort.  Friendly and helpful staff, impeccably clean suite.....the only drawback is that South Beverly at West Pico isn't the best area.

The best part of this hotel was definitely the staff! There were several small issues I had and the manager and staff went above and beyond to help. The complimentary breakfast was amazing! Cocktail Hour is also great!  Bed was very comfortable. Two things they need to work on: 1. The gym.. too small and equipment was dirty (lots of hair). 2. I needed a small nail file which most hotels have for free or for purchase and there was none available. As a Gold member with Marriott, I expect to get a file if I need one.

I'm not sure about the complaints here - I think $22 for really responsive valet is a bargain.  Really nice guys, brought our car up in 2 minutes ever time.  After we checked out, we went to LACMA and paid $13.50 to park for the afternoon.  
Nice, new, clean room.  Nice staff at the front desk. I'm not sure about the comments that say there isn't anything to do... a 5-10 minute walk down Beverly takes you to shopping, great restaurants, coffee shops, and then Rodeo Drive, Beverly Wilshire.  We took a short cab ride to Bazaar  - couldn't have been easier.  I think it's one of the best bargains in the area - if you want a fun LA weekend w/o breaking the bank, this is the spot.

After having a very positive experience at a RI in Northern CA, I decided to give this one a try.  The neighborhood is very nice if you like to go out for a walk, but as others have stated, there's not a whole lot to do in the immediate area.  We walked to a Starbucks a couple of mornings, and there are a few delis in the area that are supposed to be decent.  The hotel staff was friendly, including the valets, and we were in and out quite a bit with very minimal delay waiting for the car.  Free breakfast and internet access is a plus too.

The room was pretty clean, but I was a bit skeeved by the bubbled up paint on one of the walls.  My main complaint, and it is a big one, is that the bed was right next to the air intake for the HVAC.  This made it impossible to sleep with the AC on, due to the noise and the air flowing all over and around my head,  I called the front desk within a few minutes of getting to the room and was told that all of the rooms were set up this way.  I didn't notice any of the previous reviewers pointing this out, so maybe he was lying.  I ended up leaving the window open at night, which kept it pretty cool inside.  We were on the 7th floor and not facing the street, so the noise was tolerable.

Other than the air conditioner issue, I'd recommend this RI as it is clean and affordable.

Okay, once you get over the shock of $22 parking, this is a really great hotel. Not super luxurious and not in a very exciting area, but comfortable and clean with rooms that are like little apartments.  We were given the choice of a standard room or a larger handicapped accessible room and after making sure no one with a disability would actually need that room, we chose the larger one.  It wasn't just larger, it was HUGE!  There was a small kitchenette with a stove, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, dishes, pots, pans, etc.  There was a "welcome basket" with coffee, tea, microwave popcorn, a shopping list in case you need groceries and menus for a few local restaurants that deliver.  There was a fairly large living area with a desk/dining room table, couch, armchair, bed and TV.  It was so homey, there was even a jar of hard candies on the coffee table!

We didn't use the fitness center or have breakfast here, so I can't comment on that but all in all, it was a really pleasant stay.   Our room faced a parking garage on one side, so we were kind of worried about noise, but our room was exceptionally quiet.  We would definitely stay here again.

I also forgot to mention that the first time we complained they wanted me to show them where my bug bites were, which entailed pulling up my pant legs and shirt sleeves right at the front desk in the middle of the lobby.

They also kept insisting that 'a million other things' could cause the red dots, as I think was mentioned in the owner comment.  Sure, a million other things that just happened to only strike my boyfriend and me the nights we stayed in that one room, and just happened to strike in ways that look *exactly* like bug bites.

Great hotel and friendly staff! They allowed us to check in early and check out late with no extra charge. They also provide free "hors devours" in the evening which ended up being a full meal for both of us as well as free beer and wine. The only draw back is the daily valet fee ($25/per day or $23 for self-park which you then have to walk from another off site garage). Maybe because I'm not from a large city, but this seemed excessive. The WiFi was REALLY slow, but the Internet from the cable was decent. They also do not have an in house restaurant, but with the kitchenette it wasn't a problem for us.

At our weekend trip to L.A. We decided to stay here to be close to the scene. The Hotel was nicely decorated and our room was very decent. We had a great few of the street and the amenities were plenty, only issue was that our stove top didn't heat up properly so we weren't able to cook like we had plan to. All the employees were very nice and attentive to our needs and were available at all times.

Decent neighborhood, but nothing to do around here... at least nothing touristy, that is. There are some shops and restaurants down Beverly and it's a 10 minute drive to The Grove and Farmer's Market.

We got a standard room w/ a queen sized bed, living area, and kitchen. The room and bathroom were in good shape and clean. FREE wifi throughout the hotel. The only hotel parking is valet parking at $22 a day. I know this is Beverly Hills, but wtf?!

The staff was somewhat nice. Not overwhelmingly warm or friendly.

Good continental breakfast w/ some hot items -- waffles, pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage.

The hotel was nice enough but I probably wouldn't stay here again mainly because of the location. I'd prefer being within walking distance of something, anything... other than office buildings and private residences.

Terrific Service.  Everyone was friendly and helpful: front desk, breakfast staff, valet, housekeeeping.  

The place was clean, breakfast excellent, make your own omletes, waffles, oatmeal bar, fresh fruit and yogurt.

Very Centrally located making it easy to get to the sights.

Famous Deli had great sandwiches.

No complaints, good value for the money.  Free Wi Fi and breakfast.

2 bedroom suite had plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 kids.

Hotel #2 on our trip.  Loved the set up of the room; the Residence Inns are really nice and don't really look like a regular hotel, it's more suite style.  

Pros:
*Location!  Pretty much in Beverly Hills; we were a mile from Rodeo Drive.
*The service, the front desk employees were very friendly.  One woman, I didn't get her name, but she scrambled all around to find us a crap load of ketchup packets for our crappy dry sandwiches from Wood Ranch Grill, and after we told her what happened she gave us a small tobasco bottle to use too.  
*Looks (as I mentioned).
*Not sure about the gym, but the indoor spa is 24 hours
*Free breakfast (I think this is the case with most Marriotts).
*Free wireless.

Cons
*Our room was facing the street, so I heard some noise occasionally, but none when we were trying to sleep.
*$22 flat rate for valet only parking in the garage, but the guys got our car super quick.

The room was nicely decorated. I found the bed comfortable which was great. The water pressure in the shower was great.

Parking is $5 for 1 hour!

I am going to give them a 1 star because of the internet service. Come on guys, it's 2012! They do offer free internet BUT the speed was VERY VERY slow. I tried my laptop, HTC phone and even the tech tested it with his iPhone. Ping was around 500 ms, for those that you don't know what ping is, it should be around 20-30 and definitely under 100. It was the most horrible internet service ever. I tried the speed using SpeedTest on my HTC phone on different floors to make sure there is nothing wrong with the area where my room is located, yet the same slow/bad speed. I had to activate my T-mobile hotspot in order to be able to use the net with-out timeout and freezing.

This should be an embarrassment to Marriott.

I stayed here for 2 nights. My room was huge and nicely decorated. It had a crappy view, a kitchenette, comfy couch and high fluffy bed. The employees are nice. Parking is a pain and expensive, luckily I didn't pay for it :) I'd only stay here again if I needed to.

I stayed here in the Summer of 2010 and remember it being very nice here.  The best part is the location.  Nothing seems too far away.  In the morning, the complimentary breakfast is great.  Even better, Factor's Deli is right across the street and is super convenient.  The WiFi here is fast and there are a lot of computers to use in the lobby.  No complaints and would probably stay here again whenever I return to Los Angelas.

My family and I stayed here recently for a week since our house was being rennovated down the street.

The staff was always nice and the breakfast was a nice touch.

The rooms were well equipped but super tiny where I felt I was actually going to lose my mind.  The door to the bedroom hit the bed and didn't open all the way, it was so tiny and the bathroom was equally cramped.

The actual room seemed okay clean but then my towels looked like they haven't been washed.  This happened a few times during my stay so it really grossed me out!  After that I questioned the cleanliness of the entire hotel and the rest of my room.  This was a bit insultive since the room cost a small fortune per night!

This is not a review on the hotel itself.. strictly on my visit to see a friend from out of town..

1 star goes to the fact I had to park Valet since there I didn't see a guest parking lot or street parking

1 star goes to the comfy lobby where I was drinking ( I think ) free beer, I'm not sure for certain, I just know the bar/lobby area closed at 10pm.

I can't vouch for the rooms or customer service.

Residence Inn, one of the better Marriott brands, has always been a favorite of mine, primarily because they provide so much more space than a standard hotel room, and usually at a lower price. It's an ideal option for families, or friends who prefer some privacy without needing to rent separate rooms. The Beverly Hills property is just outside the city limits, and therefore a distance from the upscale residential and shopping areas for which the area is famous, but the hotel's off-center location makes it far more affordable than any of those lining Wilshire Boulevard and within walking distance of Rodeo Drive. Accommodations are in studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom (two-bath) suites that could be described more accurately as apartments, as they include kitchens as fully equipped as most people have at home. Although few spend their time using them to prepare complete meals, it's nice having a refrigerator for beverages and a microwave to heat up a pizza for a midnight snack. The cable/satellite TV includes HBO and a pay-per-view movie menu. Pets are welcome, although a nonrefundable $75 'sanitation fee' is charged. The hotel has an exercise room and whirlpool, but surprisingly no swimming pool. The nearest beach is in Santa Monica, about seven miles away. Rates include a very substantial breakfast buffet and evening cocktail reception. What they don't include - and this is my one major gripe about the hotel - is parking, which costs a whopping $17.00 per day. Unfortunately, guests are forced to park on-site, as street parking in the immediate area is limited and restricted in terms of when you can park and for how long. This pay-to-park policy in an area where no other options exist borders on the criminal.

Most horrible Hotel Ever! Had a dinner for my fiancé here, where we invited 4 friends to join us for dinner. When we put music on it was fine. We were laughing having a good time. When someone knocked on the door, it was the hotel Security asking us to keep it down. So we didn't think we were in a place where we couldn't laugh . So we turned the music off and we were just laughing for 30 mins it was fine then, Security came around 11:00 pm telling us they called the police and there on there way. So we have to leave the hotel if not we'd be arrested and the worst part about it I rented a suite for $300. Didn't even give me a refund for my 3 hour stay at the hotel. I didn't even sleep on the bed . Never ever coming back to any Marriot to stay at. Holiday Inn all the way it is twice as nice and twice as big rooms! as that Residence Inn there it's not even enough space to walk in a suite looks old fashioned. Worst Hotel Ever! Don't come here !

Customer service are nice and accomodating, My room is in a very quiet area which is important for me as i am a light sleeper. I will gladly stay here each time I need to return for business in LA.
Im staying for a week this time.

Fantastic customer service and great prices for suite style living! This is a great place to stay for long or short term and they provide all the amenities you may need.. Our room came with a kitchenette equip with a fridge, microwave, stove/oven, dishwasher, and dining table.. The common area had a couch, work desk, and flat screen TV that could be swiveled to either direction depending on if you're on the couch or in bed.. The bathroom was very spacious and had a full functioning bath/shower.. The only complaints I have about the room are the lack of closet space and the fact that there was no space to walk around the right side of the bed because it was positioned by a section of the wall that protruded out.. Anytime I wanted to get into or out of bed I had to climb over to the end or over my friend.. A little awkward if you ask me!

The lobby of this hotel and their employees are extremely friendly and do their best to accommodate all your needs.. They made my check-in process easy and secure because my friend had left a key down at the front for me.. They made sure to check my ID before releasing the key and I appreciated this security measure.. They were also kind enough to watch after my luggage between my check out time and my scheduled pick-up from the airport shuttle (not affiliated with the hotel).. One thing I didn't like much about this hotel is their parking policy.. They charge a daily rate of $22 for self-park and $25 for valet.. I'm not used to paying for parking at the hotel I'm staying at so I thought this was crazy but I guess that's the norm in big cities..

Aside from those small annoyances I would definitely stay at this hotel again because the service, security, and cleanliness of this place was on point!

Whenever I am heading to West LA and hankering to earn more Marriott points I always choose the Residence Inn.  They are located in a nice central spot right off Pico and near Olympic, Wilshire, and Santa Monica Blvd.  

The hotel has parking (no self parking) and the valets are typically pretty quick (one or two exceptions).  As a platinum member, I often get upgraded, which is almost embarrassing when I am there solo on a business trip and end up in a huge two bedroom with living room suite!

The breakfast is definitely 3 stars - fine, but not that great.  Overall, very happy and would definitely stay again.

Very nice hotel - helped that my Platinum status got us upgraded to a suite. Great location, quiet and peaceful hotel close to everything in West LA and Beverly Hills. Rooms are pretty spacious and everything is clean and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast scope and options are great. During the week an omelette station, today (Saturday) scrambled eggs, sausage, pancakes etc as well as the usual cereals, fruit, toast, bagels etc. will definitely come back :)

Beware of the conditioner... Luckily I used it only the last day (Friday.) After a day the spot I put the conditioner on my hand swelled to double the size and bubbled up similar to a poison oak reaction. It went down hill from there and spread across my body. I had to get a cortisone shot and a full course of pills to knock it down Monday morning. I was out of commission a week.

When I just called and reported the issue. The manager didn't seem too concerned. And there was neither an apology, much less any points given. Everything else was fine - but this was a major hit and given the brand I would expect a more Nordstrom response, not a Wall-mart minimum approach.

At least they should consider spending an extra $0.20 on the conditioner.  Having Walmart products and service works great for a Motel 6 but not a Marriott in Beverley Hills. Lol.

This is a great hotel.  I flew in late and normally stay at full service hotels with restaurants, etc.  I was so happy to see they have a wine and beer bar every evening.  The FULL breakfast in the morning is a huge hit and the location in Beverly Hills is great!  I am a huge fan of this Marriott property.  The room was spacious with a full kitchen.  Staff was super friendly.

Solid service. From the bell boy to the check in staff, everyone was helpful and friendly. The free breakfast in the morning was a nice added perk. Also, you are able to walk to Rodeo Drive from the hotel (about 15 mins) and pass great restaurants along the way. I took a tour of LA through the hotel, which was great. They picked me up and dropped me off from the hotel (very convenient considering I didn't have a car). I think this is a nice centrally located hotel in Beverly Hills and not super expensive considering the are.

His review is for family with kids who wish to travel in Beverly Hills or just visiting. I gave it 5 stars cuz we liked it so much. He arrived with 2 baby's, the service all around the hotel was excellent, very polite and graces, help you with everything you need, room service fast and when I needed milk to the room for the babies they were very happy to deliver. The room has everything that you need, all the amenities, we bought some food, it save us some money to use the kitchen in the room.
The room are ok, not very species but it was ok for us, we managed to move in the room.
The breakfast is the best!!! Lots of food, fresh, cold and warm choices. We enjoyed that so much.

You get 5-star hotel treatment at this hotel!  All of the staff were so courteous and helpful.  Rooms were super organized with helpful notes around the room.  Breakfast is super good and popular.  

I wanted to write this review especially to acknowledge the manager Maurice - what a guy!  He was super attentive and was a great host at breakfast, talking to all guests and making sure we were comfortable without being bothersome.  It was refreshing to see him interacting with everyone.  He offered to take our bulky luggage as we grabbed breakfast really quick and took care of it without us having to formally check it in, and brought it back right out to us as we were leaving.

Again the rest of the staff were also awesome. I did not get to get their names but wanted to thank them for being so helpful and accommodating with helping us take some great photos at the hotel as we were leaving for our charity ball event and breakfast cleanup.  Great hospitality.

Stayed here one night using Rewards Points. Made reservation based on Trip Advisor reviews, the location of the hotel and it's amenities.

Upon check in I was asked for my driver's license and credit card, Standard protocol. Our profile indicates we would prefer a higher floor and extra towels- I was put on the first floor and no extra towels. I figured oh well, it was just one night, but I did find it odd since I've never had my requests ignored at any other Marriott.

What she neglected to tell me upon check in was that she had put a $250 hold on my credit card. WHAT?? For one Rewards night? Once again, we stay at the Marriott hotel chain quite often and they usually put a $50 hold for incidentals. One would also think that I would have been advised of this. I only happened to find out when I checked my credit card because the rental agent at Budget Rental Car had such a hard time processing my reservation I was afraid she might have run it numerous times for the same transaction. Had I not looked into that, I would have had no idea.

The hotel itself was one of, if not the worst Marriott's I have ever stayed in. Sure the location is great but the hotel had so much air freshener in the rooms and hall, I couldn't help wonder what they were trying to mask. Asked for extra blankets for my daughter and they apparently had to bleach the tan blankets so much they had spots all over them. Motel 6 probably has blankets in better condition. HVAC is also super loud in the room. After a not so great nights sleep I awoke the next day only to discover bites on my feet. DISGUSTING, not to mention incredibly itchy.

Ironically, that $250 pre-authorization for several days on my credit card was useless as the one amenity I wanted to use (the supposedly convenient hotel bar) was closed. My daughter and I ended walking up the hill that evening to another restaurant. So much for convenience. The total charge for my stay? $29.70 for valet parking. $250 seems a bit excessive does it not?

Should have one star but location adds another.

Would I ever stay here again? ABSOLUTELY NOT! As a matter of fact, I feel completely robbed of my 35,000 rewards points.

Stayed December 2014

I stayed here this weekend in advance of my wedding.  We blocked some rooms and had a couple of our guests staying here.  

When we arrived, the parking was very confusing.  The first driveway was for guests with keys, and the second driveway we came to pointed us back the other way.  Unfortunately, a tour bus was blocking our view to the right entrance to parking.  We drove around the block and parked at a meter to check in.

When we checked in, the front desk clerks couldn't have been more welcoming.  We had welcome bags waiting for our guests (including me!) at check-in.    

Later we learned that one of our guests checked in and were not given their bag.  Luckily, when they asked for it when they returned they did receive it.  But they shouldn't have had to ask for it.

When I returned that night, I used the valet parking for security purposes, and a bell man who was very efficient in getting out bags to us.

We enjoyed the breakfast briefly before we had to get to our venue.

I would call it an excellent experience overall, except for the mishap with our guests' gift bag.  If we had not asked them about it, they would have never known.

Wanted to check out LA over a three day weekend, wanted to take my dog, and chose this hotel for its central location in a decent area not near an airport among the dog friendly hotels.

I found the hotel to be very clean, the staff friendly and the amenities just as I expected them to be.

Since I drove up I made use of the self parking, $25 a day. Parking garage connects to the hotel on the fourth floor, so parking on the ground or fourth floor are most convenient.

I have Sprint, and coverage in my 3rd floor front facing room was poor. Plenty of signal outside. Hotel WiFi worked fine, did not speed test, used for email and web browsing only.

Walking the dog, there is no grass right at the hotel. If you head north on Beverly there is residential area east and west on Whitworth. There is also a park, Roxbury, about a mile away that had a few off leash dogs running around, but the guy I spoke to said they ticket for off leash on occasion.

There is a Ralphs to the southwest, within easy walking distance, about 5 minutes. Not the best Ralphs I have seen but they do have a Kosher deli.

A few restaurants around but I didn't try any of them. Rodeo drive is close, everything else is a half hour drive, or four hours in traffic (a little LA humor there).

I will definitely make this place my go to place for LA. Location is

This hotel is fine considering the location and price. The only problems are the layout of the standard King rooms because there is literally 4 inches of space between one side of the bed and the wall making it very difficult to get in and out if bed if you're a couple.  The breakfast is served for just one hour (8-9AM) only which is strange but there are lots of good restaurants in the area to eat at. This hotel is ok and should suit most people but next time we're in Beverly Hills we'll stay at Mr. C's of Beverly Hills which is on the same block but quite a bit nicer.

We got this room for a great price! Everything was clean. The only issue was that we had to pay $25/night for parking for each car. And there's a lot of walking to do from the parking garage to the rooms. Great location though.

PROS
**Free Breakfast w. Omelette Station
There's a free breakfast, as common with Residence Inns, with waffle maker, muffins, pastries, toast, cereal, juices, milk, fruits, and yogurt. There are 2-3 hot food items (like hashbrowns and candian ham). The one thing that IS different, though, is that there is a manned omelette station. You can choose any or all from: mushrooms, tomatoes, ham, green onions, and green peppers.

**Good Location...I guess
I didn't come here for vacation, but this is pretty close to Beverly Hills. I don't think there is anything really worth walking distance from here, but by driving, you have some options. Sony Pictures Studios is pretty close by, and I'm assuming there are tours that go on there.

CONS
**No HDMI Input on TV
Not that it's REALLY a requirement, but I would appreciate some place to hook my Google Chromecast. It's hard to believe that any modern LCD HDTV doesn't have an HDMI, and there is what looks like a cover on the back that might be intentionally hiding them. Either way, a little disappointing.

**Poor Office Chair/Front Door Placement
The table where you work (not the dining table) is directly in front of the door. The height of the chair, when it goes under the table, is a bit too low to work on optimally. I'm 5'11" so I'm not short, but optimal sitting position for me is the chair all the way up, which means that it doesn't go under the table, which means that now, the front door can only open up halfway before it hits the chair, and then you have wiggle your way in.

**Expensive Parking
Parking is $25/day for self park and $27 for valet. Granted, it's in LA/Beverly Hills, so prices are steep, but still. As if the room wasn't expensive enough, they charge an additional $30. That's crazy!

This has become the default choice for staying in West Los Angeles due to the consistency, cleanliness, maintenance of facility, quality staff and excellent valet service. This hotel works because you don't notice anything amiss- and I know that takes a tremendous amount of behind-the-scenes attention and work. Most favorite aspect: solid walls and doors so you don't hear neighbors. A huge plus. Yes, it's the city, so there is noise (ambulance, police sirens, garbage trucks, etc.) but considering the location on the intersection of Pico it is A-OK. This is right in the middle of one of the largest Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods in Los Angeles; families walk to and from the nearby synagogues and the neighborhood is very quiet on Friday nights (shabbat). Another plus: walking distance to the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Ralph's and Pavilions grocery stores and CVS.

Every room has a kitchenette with microwave, toaster, cooktop, coffee maker, dishwasher, and full size refrigerator. Kitchen is stocked with dishes, utensils, etc. Standard full bath with a sink in separate anteroom from commode/shower. Beds range from king to queen and most rooms have a sofa bed. Rooms are always spotless and everything works. Windows open which is a plus. M-W they offer light dinner/snack service gratis- I've partaken a couple of times and it is quite nice and substantial especially considering it is complimentary. Free breakfast buffet which I haven't had in a while but as I recall is good with a range of cold/room temp to- go items and eggs/waffles.. Lobby has undergone extensive renovations and has a bar, seating, and always available coffee and tea. Dining area also has a side courtyard with seating.

Workout room and spa in basement. I believe the hotel was formerly a hospital  40 plus years ago and the basement was a therapy room.  They should have an attendant but, oh well. Spa pool is huge and very hot. You can actually do mini-laps in it. They are still renovating the lobby area so expect some noise. Valet parking is $27 a day on site and the guys do an amazing job. Worth every penny.

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay in this hotel.  We typically stay in $100/a night hotels that are nothing special, so all the amenities at the Residence Inn seemed extra great.  We loved having the kitchenette and used it several times when we didn't feel like going out to eat, and the free breakfast was IMPRESSIVE.  We are used to free crappy continental breakfasts, but Residence Inn offers hot food such as eggs, potatoes, pancakes, Belgian waffles, sausage, oatmeal and an omelette station in addition to the bagels and whatnot.  The staff were all very nice, and the manager even made a point of stopping by to chat with us during breakfast.

We chose this Marriott location not because we were so psyched on Beverly Hills (we never spent any time there except while in the hotel), but because it was centrally located to everything we wanted to do in Los Angeles.  Hollywood, Downtown, Universal City and the beaches were within reasonable driving distances.  It didn't seem like there was much of anything to do in the neighborhood, unless you find Rodeo Drive to be interesting.  The one thing about Beverly Hills is that public transportation is limited, so we took a lot of cabs (which can get expensive in LA traffic) and rented a car for a few nights which cost us $25/a night to park (adds up but is not unheard of in a nice hotel in a big city- the downtown LA Marriott charges $50/a night!).

Overall our stay was very comfortable and felt like a "home away from home" as we explored Los Angeles.

I spent 7 nights at this hotel a few weeks ago as I was in town for a week long conference for work.  I was pleasantly surprised with just about everything here and would no doubt stay here again the next time I am in LA.

The rooms are quite spacious and comfortable.  There is a kitchen & dining table, work area, living room, as well as bed & bathroom.  One thing to note is that the valet parking is only $2 more than the self park.  I took advantage of that :)

The free breakfast is a huge plus.  There is a wide variety of hot & cold items, as well as take away items also.  They even had a chef cooking made-to-order omelettes on a couple of days when I was there.

They offer free wifi which is excellent & fast (better than some other hotels I've been at recently).  I didn't have any issues with connectivity at all.

Every staff member I came in contact with was extremely nice and helpful, and super friendly and attentive.  They really made my stay very enjoyable.

One tip I have is that if you are a AAA member, you can save up to $40 per night.  Make sure you check the discounts as I saved quite a bit that way.

Okay, so I literally lived here for nearly a week, so I think I can vouch that the Marriot in Beverly Hills is A-OK in my book!

The rooms are clean, the set-up is spacious and convenient, there is a full functioning kitchen with pots, pans, and utensils provided with dishwasher, garbage disposal, and a fold out sofa bed for your convenience.

This hotel includes free wi-fi, an open 24-hour gym, pool amenities (not so grand by the way), valet and self parking, complimentary breakfasts served every day of the week, and also designated room service.

If you decide to save some mega bucks and just cook within, there's a Ralph's located less than a block away.

They also allow for pets to stay here for a nonrefundable $100 pet fee deposit. So feel free to bring your furry pooch friend!

Also, if you're a Marriot Rewards Card member, you can choose to accumulate points and to use them here or at any other Marriott location!

This is by far one of the worst hotels I have ever had the misfortune to stay in.

I was moving back to LA and had to spend one night in a hotel because the moving vans were arriving the next morning. Wouldn't you know it, I picked Oscar week to move back to LA!  Every good hotel was booked solid. And so were the bad ones.  And this was one of the bad ones.

The air conditioner sounded like a motorcycle was idling by my bedside.  The bed was pushed way up against a window so I could only get in on one side -- not the side I like to sleep on.  There is a small kitchen, that was okay.  The furniture is scratchy and hard and uncomfortable.  One of my girlfriends came to visit for a few hours.  Not very comfortable. We ended up sitting on the floor.

What I can say is that the staff get 5 stars. They were very friendly and helpful.  It's just that they work for a lousy hotel.  Do not ever plan to stay in a Residence Inn again.

Worst part:  the bill came to $454  !!!!  That's more than I pay for the Ritz Carlton in Marina del Rey!!  'Course they added $100 for my dog. But stilll.....

Bad experience. Yuck.
