We stayed at the Sunset Tower on our honeymoon five years ago and could not wait to return with our two children on a family trip to Disney and LA. We had contact prior to arrival with Tim Cunningham, the maitre d'hotel, who could not have been more helpful and welcoming. By the time we reached Los Angeles having driven from Vancouver, we felt immediately at home. The Santa Ana winds had been blowing in our favour and due to the local power outage, there were local guests using the hotel and our suite so we were graciously upgraded. I was immediately swept away to the lovely salon and spa for a blow-dry, all pre-organised by Tim, and the concierge babysitting service arrived on time, allowing my husband and I meet a friend in the bar. The service here is also impeccable and the cocktails original and delicious. Nothing was too much for Tim - he even organised a superb picnic for us to take to Disney from a local deli which certainly makes things easier with two small children who require snacks on a permanent basis.

Everything at the Sunset Tower is to be recommended - from the Kiehl's bath products to the comfortable beds and most importantly the attention to detail. The building is a veritable landmark and the history is tangible - staying here is like living for a few days in the Golden Era of Hollywood, with all the service, glamour and history that entails.

We stayed on our honeymoon, The suite we had was very romantic with a great view down sunset and over the city! Make sure you dine at the restaurant, maitre'd is terrific and makes you feel very welcome, even if your not a celebrity!

Room Tip: get one as high as possible

The Bar here is by far one of the Best in the city. Don't go in here in shorts and a T-Shirt! This is a very nice place. The host is a true gentleman and how can you not like a guy who has not let the likes of Lindsay Lohan & Paris Hilton in here.

The ambiance is Fabulous the View Incredible and the food Fantastic with classic drinks.

The Hotel is from the 20's and kept up very nicely, just don't excpect super size rooms. John Wayne once had a cow on a balcony though!

Walking into the hotel we immediately impressed, that awe ended up staying in the lobby. We reserved a 2 Bedroom Suite at the hotel and it was nothing short of a joke - it was essentially 2 rooms with a hallway connecting the 2 individual rooms. No closet space, no dressers to put anything away. The hotel's NON-pro-active response to the situation was to move to another suite and pay an additional $300 per night for a "genuine suite as they call it"

End of story, with so many great hotels in LA, if your looking for luxury and space, look elsewhere.
