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.

Elegant Hotel-Courteous Staff

It looks like old Hollywood. The Valet is so great, they went out of their way. The rooms were a disappointment, however. They were bare and I even found someone's clothes folded in a drawer. I guess the cleaning crew forgot to check in there. The rest of the hotel was really great.

If you are going to Downtown LA, this is a good place to be. You can get a cab in no time. If you were to walk to LA Live- wear sneakers. It's a little far. But, the price was great.

Easy access to everything!

Very tidy hotel. Very traditional. Some rooms have a closet safe some do not. Interior rooms - you do have to spend the entire time listening to aircondition units. Since i did not spend time during day inside, no problem. If that would bother you at night request outside with sun. My room was great for my needs.

Biltmore LA

This is a beautiful hotel, no doubt. Of particular interest are the historic photographs and the gorgeous architecture. Having a bathroom sink that would not drain is a disgusting inconvenience. And finding out when you drive into the valet parking area that you will be paying $40 for one night's parking is not a pleasant surprise.

Downtown LA is not really good for visitor

The hotel itself is very nice, and staff are all very nice and helpful. But the location is really.... not for tourists. It's not safe to walk around during night time. Room is alright, not as stunning as its hotel lobby, but it's clean and cozy.

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.

Average

The hotel was an average hotel (stained carpets, old scratched mirrors) The Bed was VERY uncomfortable. The matress had waves in it , very worn, very old. Staff was very nice. But I upgraded the room due to free internet access and at the end of my stay I got charged 9.95 per night and was told all Orb itz customers do not get free internet service.

historic beauty

Worth the visit as the common areas are gorgeous and decadently ornate. Nice bar with nice bartender who actually took pleasure in mixing a cocktail (old fashion, brandy alexander) Stuffy desk crew but air of first class expected. Pool is classic art deco with exquisite tiles. History hall with photos of past glory. down side is parking is grossly expensive $40/day , but valets were very nice and attentive. We came to LA after 3 nights in Vegas at the Palazzo - so the the older, small rooms, tiny TV was "different" and sparse. But room was very clean and quiet and bed was comfortable.
