Enjoy Old-World elegance at this famed downtown L.A. landmark

Built in 1923 and designed along Continental motifs, Millennium Biltmore Hotel's gilded, ornate architecture is an immersion into a classic, bygone era. From the stately guest rooms and the elegant Rendezvous Court to the landmark Gallery Bar and Cognac Room, the hotel speaks to Los Angeles heritage by way of Old European charm. A Roman-style pool and health club adds to the allure of the hotel.

Highlights
  • Historic venue that's hosted kings, presidents and celebrities
  • Exceptional nightlife and dining options include Gallery Bar and La Bisteca Italian steakhouse
  • Roman-style pool and health club
Location
The Millennium Biltmore Hotel's downtown location means L.A.'s vibrant cultural and financial districts are just blocks away. Nearby freeway access puts major business and tourist destinations within easy reach.
Rooms
Tones of warm gold, ivory and cream, accented by rich woods and plush drapery highlight each room. The stately furnishings, plantation shutters and marbled bathrooms complete the rooms' impeccable European decor. Each of the hotel's 683 guest rooms come either with a king bed or two double beds, Wi-Fi access (fees apply) and satellite TV with on-demand movies. Upgraded business-class rooms include 42-inch flat screen TVs, radios with MP3 docking stations and wider work desks and credenzas.
Features
All Millennium Biltmore Hotel guests have complimentary access to the Roman-style indoor pool and health club. For lively Continental dining, try the acclaimed Smeraldi's, and for succulent Italian-style steaks and fresh seafood, La Bisteca is hard to resist. Sai Sai offers exceptional Asian cuisine. Take a seat at the legendary Gallery Bar or retire to the Cognac Room, with its lovingly preserved early-20th century memorabilia, for world-class cocktails. Groove to terrific jazz and blues standards on Friday and Saturday nights.

Enjoyed our stay

This is a beautiful well-maintained historic hotel, with very clean rooms and an excellent staff. However, you must be willing to overlook the small (but very clean) bathrooms. Our room was very comfortable, especially the beds. Would have liked a refrigerator/mini bar and free Wi-Fi. A very elegant heated indoor swimming pool with steam room and dry sauna.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Hotel valet parking is pretty high compared to parking on 5th for $6 per entry which is still less then valet at $40 a day. We were in and out at least 3 times a day at $18 a day.

Classic hotel

We spent 2 nights at the Biltmore and had a very good experience. The staff was extremely cordial. The public areas are classically beautiful. My only complaint was waiting for elevators. There was a bank of 6 elevators and clearly, only a few were operating.

Can be better

If you like a Palace style, this is the Hotel from the 1920's and in very nice good conditions. I love it. But my only complaint was the bathroom with broken marble floor and broken vanity tiles. Expensive daily Valet Parking. Besides that is something different Hotel experience, worthwhile.

Home base for downtown debauchery

Great hotel in a great location. It's older so the hallway smells a little like cigarette smoke, but the room didn't so I didnt think it was a big deal. Really beautiful lobby. A nice change from your standard Hilton or Westin.

Historic Biltmore in LA

We chose this hotel for it's history and location, despite several negative reviews about room condition and staff. I'm happy to say, in our experience, the rooms were great and staff were all friendly and hospitable. We really enjoyed being able to walk around downtown LA , which is having a resurgence, on the many guided and self-guided walking tours. We would definitely choose this hotel again!

Walking tours from short to 21/2 miles are readily available and really help with history and orientation. Who knew LA had a vibrant downtown?

Friendly but Expensive

I thought the hotel for the most part was a nice hotel to stay in for the location and convenience of travel into other regions of Los Angeles. I did think that the parking was over-priced since there are no other options to park. The bathroom in the room was extremely small and barely left enough room to open the door properly. The pool and spa area was terribly out dated and needed some attention given to restoration of the jacuzzi, and dry sauna areas.
