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.

Amazing Indoor Pool!

The architecture is amazing! Be sure to check out the early 20th century tile pool in the basement of the hotel. It used to be a "gentleman's club!" and it reflects some wonderful examples of the artful California tile work of the 20's. " We could practically hear the ghosts of Hollywood's Golden Era toasting and boasting it up with each other wrapped in towels!

Horrible Customer Service and Rates

Valet customer service and instructions needs a lot of work. Also, the rates are insane! $40 a night for valet is too steep. Internet access is $10 a night. Most hotels have complimentary access. The hotel rooms look much nicer in the pictures than they are. I recommend remodeling the bathrooms in the hotel rooms.

Over the Hill

Located in the heart of downtown LA, this 1920's era hotel is extravagent in its public areas. The room was clean and comfortable, but needs updating. Tiny bathroom. Bathtub wouldn't drain, so filled while I showered. No hand towels or washcloths, only 2 bath towels. Very poor channel selection on TV. But for downtown LA, the price was right.

desk staff uninterested

Requested late ck in and they terminated reservation. When they reinstated room downgraded and desk attendant acted like 'oh well' they should have told you after certain time no holding. Bed hard and uncomfortable. View a wall. Overpriced for what received. I stay downtown LA alot and the worst service. I will never return!

Great location for Downtown business

Comfortable, spacious, although the noise of the a/c fans outside the window of this interior room made a lot of "white" noise. Good food and service in restaurant and cafe at hotel. Easy walk to many theater, museum and music venues. Adequate complement of restaurants and shops in immediate neighborhood. I would book again when I had a big enough budget.

Amazing Hotel!

This is an amazing hotel. Rich history, elegant rooms and a prime location make this the place to stay in downtown LA. I would recommend getting a club room as there are lots of extra perks!

Quick Weekend Stay

Went to LA for a quick weekend getaway. It's a charming old hotel, with some great places to eat nearby that aren't chain. Friendly staff, clean rooms, quick service. 55$ cab ride from LAX.

Good location & history - tired hotel

Loved the overall ideal of the Biltmore but the room was tired, small bath - needed updating and some maintenance. Some street noise as well but overall a good impression. Staff was friendly
