Best Hotel in LA
I was forced to evacuate my home during a wildfire, and much of LA was sold out, so I decided to give this hotel a try. It lives up to its spectacular reputation. Upon arrival I was brought a toiletry kit, as well as a pet amenity kit for my cat. They even brought a pet bed and a food/water bowl set to the room. I was also gifted a bottle of wine and fresh cherries, which was thoughtful. The room itself was top notch. The shower and soaking tub were spectacular, and the bathroom had a wonderful skylight that made for a serene sunset soak. The pool area is lovely and serene, although there were kids splashing about and making noise at one side of the pool. I'd prefer it if this were an adults only property, because it has that kind of feel to it, but I understand that families need places to stay and can't fault the hotel. The best part of my experience was walking around the grounds at night. After 11 PM I felt like I was the only guest of the hotel even though it was quite full if not sold out by then. There is a nice little pond with 2 swans and a waterfall, and the property strikes the perfect balance between tropical lush and wooded. You feel like you're in Hawaii meets Colorado with the mix of foliage, and they have some exotic trees that are quite old and stunningly tall. It's a very romantic setting, and would be great for couples. My only feedback for the hotel is that the room was quite loud in the AM due to the sound of slamming doors.

luxury hotel in private garden setting
the famous Hotel Bel Air is somewhere I have always wanted to stay. a business meeting made it possible for one night. while the grounds and location were magnificent, overall I was a bit disappointed. the wall of windows in our room bordered on a pathway to the pool. guests passed by all day requiring us to keep the draped drawn. the décor was gorgeous, however even with full lights turned on it was very dark. the i pad hotel information and room temperature adjustments wasted time learning the operation and calling the front desk on more than one occasion. the bathroom was gorgeous, however the door lock was an unusual design and faulty. this caused me to lock myself in and required maintenance assistance, which was immediate and extremely friendly and helpful. the pool is large and comfortable. I was disappointed with the one restaurant. at dinner the host was haughty and unhelpful, at the overpriced breakfast, $100 for two I had to send my order back and the remake was no better.

Nice hotel but...
I am currently staying at the hotel now. Every time I come to LA this is my favorite hotel given its exclusivity and the quality service, I prefer this over any 5 start hotels in Beverly Hills. However, one thing always gives me a sour taste during my stay. Given that I have been staying here more than a few years now, everytime I check in, the receptionists always ask me "Is this your first time staying with us?"... This always gives me a mental distance between the hotel and me, and I am not sure if I want to continue to stay here... Other than that, it is private, the location is excellent, friendly staff... Also this time around I got an email from Expedia+ that the hotel will supply a free bottle of wine.. I still haven't gotten it.

The property is stunningly beautiful. There are beautiful plants and flowers everywhere, with Gorgeous lawns and walking paths. There is a creek on the property, with swans and ducks and trickling water. The bar is wonderful, the cocktails are excellent, and they serve these marinated Peppers that are totally addicting. The Wolfgang Puck restaurant is superb, and the service is attentive but not cloying. The Tariff is high, but well worth it. The small baguettes are served warm and are incredibly delicious. My room was upgraded by the hotel, and it was luxurious and warm. I had a private patio. I spent two days there, and wish I could have stayed longer. The Hotel Bel-Air is a world-class Hotel, and I would recommend it without reservation.

Absolute Perfection!
This is the best hotel I’ve ever stayed at. Once my husband and I stayed at Bel-Air we never stayed at another hotel in LA. The property is absolutely stunning, a secret and tranquil garden. The service is impeccable and they’ve thought of every detail. We always brings our dogs and they welcome them with open arms. Our dogs are our family so this means the world to us. In addition to our pups, every single detail is on point and every request is fulfilled.
