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.

Very helpful and friendly

The Biltmore Hotel lives up to its expectations. Large clean room with a built in desk and cabinets. Has 1 lounge chair with several floor lamps. Beds are very comfortable with one nightable. The bathroom rather small but comes with plenty of towels. Midnight snacks are delicious. One has to try the guacamole and salsa dip.

Great Value

This historic hotel was absolutely beautiful! The pool and spa were especially well maintained and beautifully decorated w/great guest amenities including lockers, private dressing rooms and showers, hairdryers, etc. The rooms and closets very spacious. With so much room they could put a small refrigerator or microwave in the rooms. Tasteful and elegant old-style architecture inside and out. I was disappointed to have to pay $10/day for internet service. Also, since they cater to the business traveler, & we were on a family vacation on a holiday midweek special, so there was no continental breakfast being served as they usually do. Staff was great and very knowledgeable about the area and the history. It's very close to a metro stop which makes it easy to get around practically all of the general LA area. We took it to Universal City and Hollywood and didn't have to worry about paying for parking or traffic. Great deal!

Metro to Union Station/La Placita, the original LA settlement. Great deals on shopping for Mexican imports. The last food stand to the north has the world's best taquitos! Merchandise is varied and reasonable. Lots of places to eat & take photos. Museum too if you want something educational & interesting for the kids.

Very family friendly

Since it is a piece of art and historic LA landmark, I thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. I choose not to eat, use the business center, nor park in the hotel becuase it is very, very expensive. However, I would recommend this hotel to anyone because of its great location, and the building per se, complete in art deco. There are many wonderful sites nearby which totally promote downtown Los Angeles, so it is very centrally located. When I checked in on a Thursday afternoon I immediatey walked about 20 blocks checking out the entire nearby area and was quite impressed. The evening was further interesting because there was a musical group playing in Pershing Park just behind the hotel gratis of the Los Angeles Parks and Recreation Summer Concert Series. The most ridiculous cost in the hotel was the rental of a computer in the business center to check one's e-mail at .49 per minute. This tells me major hotels in major cities strive to make money on every single amenity they offer. Anyway, I loved the hotel.

Fantastic

Staying at the Biltmore is a historic and amazingly pleasant experience! One can see its greatness in every little detail. The rooms are very large and comfortable. Everything about the hotel is just perfect, but I would like to make a special reference to the breakfast, where you can order eggs with truffles and a glass of champaign, and to the Gallery Bar, with perfectly prepared drinks by nice bartenders and a wonderful atmosphere.

Taste of old LA

The Biltmore has a sort of old LA vibe in the new Downtown area, where there are new bars and restaurants opening, it seems. One person told me Downtown is getting kind of hip. Its quieter than staying on Sunset or in Hollywood, but close to the MOCA, the Metro and even Silver Lake isn't far. The hotel rooms aren't huge, but have some old details, crown molding, etc... All is very clean and quiet. The lobby is kind of incredible and enormous. Various ornate bars to have cocktail in, walls lined with old photographs of actors from the 30s and 40s at the beginning of the Academy Awards Ceremony era. The gym is suitable, yet small. The pool is indoor, but clean and well kept. Excellent restaurants right in the hotel, though they are somewhat pricey. Cheaper fare, and things like a Starbucks, are right down the street. Recommended for those that want to try something different than the usual Sunset strip stay.

Elegant and timeless beauty

Opulent and with an unexpectedly colourful history which I found fascinating. Very close to LA attractions and the staff were attentive and friendly. The only downside was the lack of hotel mini-bar and room service, which is probably due to the age of the hotel and room configuration. But the elegant and beautiful surroundings more than make up for this minor inconvenience.

Good value

The Millenium Biltmore was excellant value for money. The staff service was excellant but I am disappointed in the lack of full internet service by it not having an smtp acount so that i could send out emails. I would have expected a hotel of this level to have a better internet and wireless system. I found the room very clean and neat if a little worn around the edges due to its age. The public areas were outstanding along with the resturants. The location was easily accessable to the hiway and to the downtown area.
