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.

gr8 place 2 visit but don't stay here

The public areas are beautiful, the staff is friendly but it is way too noisy to get a goodnight sleep. The room was big but the windows are single pane and I could hear the MTA buses putter up the hill on 5th Street. Parking is $40 but I paid 13.20 across the street in Pershing Square. I got a better nite sleep 2 weeks prior at a Motel 6 in Auburn, CA that was next to a freeway than at this prestigious and more expensive hotel. It was quite disappointing.

Average

Since i've read a bunch of review before booking this hotel, it was pretty much what i was expecting. Glamorous lobby and bar, average rooms. The room was decently clean, but you can see the age; bathtub was very small and tight. other than that, it's just a regular hotel, probably not a 4 star, i would say 3.5. But we got a really good deal when booking the room, so it was worth it.

quite noisy

Very noisy rooms. a lot of outside traffic noise and hall way noise. Not to mention that the fire alarm went off at about 11:30 pm then would shut off and start ringing again, did this several times. but there was no fire. Tv was very small and quite old considering the price of the room. and you had to be in bed to be able to see the tv. I won't go back again. Sasreflects in Hesperia, Ca

Biltmore Hotel - LA,CA

Stayed 1 night. The lobby is an incredible example of Art Deco in the grand Hollywood style. The room, however, needs a little updating to keep up with the lobby. The TV (tube style) was in armoire and made passage from bed to bathroom troublesome. Bathroom had fairly new marble, but tub needed refinishing and the shower leaked. Such a beautiful property...hope someone will care enough and have the resources to restore the rooms to original beauty.

Lacking that special something for the high price

Dissapointed: front desk was unefficient; I paid internet & a call to find my reservation. The concierge was unefficient. Noisy room AC; bathroom door -low part-dusty.

Millenium Biltmore

Was disappointed in the room. Paid for old and rundown, when I thought it would be extraordinary. Have paid that amount before for other hotels and was "blown away" by the accommodations. Not so much with this one.

Needs a make-over

Disappointed to find out parking is $40 per night. This wasn't mentioned in the reservation process. And that internet access is $10 per day. Restaurants are good but expensive. Rooms are large, but bathroom is tiny and needs renovation. Public areas are elegant, but the guest rooms feel old and tired. Time for an upgrade project.

NEEDS SOME WORK

THE PUBLIC AREAS OF THIS HOTEL ARE MAGNIFICENT... THE RESTAURANTS, TEAROOM AND LOBBY ARE GREAT FOR SHORT TO MEDIUM LENGTH BUSINESS MEETINGS. THIS TIME I PAID TO STAY ON THE CLUB FLOOR. I INFORMED THE FRONT DESK THAT MY ROOM WAS MUSTY AND IT WAS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE WITH THE REMOTE I HAD, TO TURN THE TV ON AND OFF. THEY DID NOT MANAGE TO RECTIFY EITHER OF THESE PROBLEMS; EVEN THOUGH I WAS TOLD TWICE IT WOULD BE DONE. FURTHERMORE, EVEN THOUGH I HAD SIGNIFICANT CHARGES AT CHECKOUT; WHEN I TOLD THE CASHIER THESE ISSUES WERE NEVER RESOLVED, I WAS NOT OFFERED ANY SAVINGS OFF MY EXPENDITURES. I THINK THETY CLEARLY NEED SOME HOUSEKEEPING AND CUSTOMER SERVICE TRAINING, I WILL SY THE AMENITIES OF THE CLUB LOUNFGE WERE WELL WORTH THE DIFFERENCE IN PRICE.

"Fantastic Family Trip"

I liked the hotel very much, especially the design of interior. It was old but very elegant and luxury. The one thing I didn't like was their washroom. The washroom was really hard to use and very small. Overall, it was nice trip and nice travel package!
