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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Facades Dominate

Thank goodness I got a packaged deal. I would have been disappointed otherwise. 1) USD40 a day parking (or USD35 for self park across the street... not good for late night returns) that I didn't recall was included in the description 2) Valet service with a "minimum wage attitude" (they likely are paid min wage though) 3) Lackluster room... Tube TV (I've gotten cheaper rates in beverly hills with flatscreens), dated furniture with simple no frills bed, simple bathroom with plastic wrapped HoJo cups (yes, NO GLASS cups or mugs for the coffee maker). 4) Internet fee of 9.95$ per day

Really?

Let me start with the good. The Biltmore is a good, no, Great old hotel in terms of decor. The ceilings alone are worth a trip to see this grand old dame of Los Angeles. The mojitos in the bar were great. And my interactions with the staff were good as well. But... ...$9.95 for WiFi? Lots of places include it free or if they do charge you like Motel 6 it three bucks. Forty dollars for parking? Really? And then there's the renovation- apparently it's still going on because there was a paint cart in the hallway when we arrived. And much of what they've done is paint and no more, as in painting the old bathtub. Leave the old porcelain as is. That type of paint invariably peels and it looks worse than if you'd left it. It's like plastic surgery, you look younger, but never young. Let the patina of this gem shine. Would I stay again? Maybe.
