Hotel itself is fine. However, checkout left a very bad taste in my mouth and I won't be returning to the hotel because of it. I was charged $10 because I had to make a trip back to my room to load my luggage in my vehicle while I was parked I stayed in the room by myself, and there were no bellhops to help load things. What was I supposed to do? I'm not going to leave all of my belongings on the sidewalk while I walk to go and get my vehicle that I had parked off site. That's insanity and shows how little this hotel cared about it's customers. The man directing things outside made me hand over my keys when I pulled up, and then made me give him $10 cash in order to get my keys back. I felt taken advantage of and have never been treated like that at any hotel I've ever been to in my life.…
Our stay at the Biltmore was a great experience. The building is a historical treasure and a joy to look around. The room was clean, comfortable and elegantly appointed. It was dark and quiet for quality sleeping. Will stay there again on a future visit to LA.
Friendly staff, clean and beautiful rooms, excellent ambience, and the building was full of historical tidbits. Easy walk to many places of interest and good restaurants. Unfortunately, the pool was closed 🥲 but we had a great stay otherwise.
After many stays here in small or very small rooms, this time for $225/night we got a h-u-g-e room with a view of Pershing Square. Fantastic. The hotel lives up to the claims that it's a timeless monument of how the other half used to live--and if you shop carefully and get a similar room, you will be very happy indeed. Millennium is dodgy with the "destination fee" and so was Reservationstays.com (and all its confusing aliases). If you think anything that looks more than 10 days old is "dated," avoid this hotel. Just do a web search for hotels completed since 2020. But if you think people actually knew how to live 100 years ago, live it up at the Biltmore.
I was attending a conference in downtown, and the Millennium Biltmore was ideally located just a couple of blocks away. It is not the newest or most modern, but is perfectly OK, and the quality-price ratio is hard to beat -- even if the final price is way, way higher than the very low headline rate after adding in taxes and the $28-per-day "resort fee." Downtown LA is a bit desolate and creepy after dark these days, with many restaurants and stores closed.
I came for the Bridgerton Ball and stayed overnight. The exterior, lobby, bar area are nice and have that vintage Hollywood glamour appeal. However the actual rooms have that tenement vibe. Reminded me of the apartment in The Honeymooners with Jackie Gleason. The windows and curtain were filthy. Bathroom sink had exposed pipes. Door had old school chain. Stained carpets. Weird contraption on side of bed. The parking garage entrance (to retrieve your car) is not connected to lobby. You have to exit lobby, cross the driveway, climb up steps yo enter parking garage entrance. Just inconvenient.
Great hotel! Conveniently located! We walked to the Ahmanson for a show. Cool place. They were having their Bridgerton Experience, though, and check-in was terrible. We had to wait in line for 45 minutes! There was also a concert at Pershing Park that went until midnight and was so loud it was vibrating the building. Would’ve been nice to have a head’s up but that is probably not on the hotel. Overall a great experience and we would stay there again.
Interesting hotel as a historic site and if you're into old time luxury hotels from back in the day. Honestly, I care more about the actual sleeping room and accommodations. The actual sleeping rooms are OK but a bit dated. Nothing wrong with anything, but I personally prefer more modern facilities. The hotel itself is definitely unique, so kudos for not being a sterile, cookie-cutter facility. Please note that their fitness room is not handicap accessible. I was suffering from a really sore knee during my visit and had to drag my leg up and down a flight of stairs to get to the pool and fitness room. I'm assuming as a historic site they're able to bypass ADA compliance, but they really need to address this issue even if they're not forced to. The staff is really nice. The hotel is relatively close to the subway and across the street from a bus stop. Many restaurants and fast food spots within a short walk (4-5 blocks) from the hotel. There is a Whole Foods a few blocks from the hotel which I definitely took advantage of. However, the downtown area surrounding the hotel may be a little uncomfortable for some who are not used to being in a city environment. Nothing too bad but expect to run into several homeless people when you venture out of the hotel.…
Rooms that face towards the interior, view thother rooms and have a terrible noise of a ventilation or something similar. Be sure to ask for rooms that face a outward. Rooms are of bad quality, old and need refurbishment. Bathrooms are small.
After 99 years, this hotel is showing serious signs of wear and age. While the common areas seem somewhat (but not fully) maintained, the guest rooms are tired, dated and in need of major renovations. The Biltmore does NOT meet the standards of a 4-star hotel based on guest rooms. Considering our room and the poor sleep quality, the rooms are more like a 2-star. **The wall vent was crusty and full of dirt, rust & mold – like it hadn’t been cleaned in decades. And this is how all heat and AC air enters the room. **Our toilet had an industrial flusher, which aside from being hideous looking, is extremely loud, like a jet engine, and disturbed our sleep. **The bathtub had large strips of visible mold. **Sheets and towels were low quality and well-worn. **Paint, baseboards and wall trims were dirty, scuffed and chipped. **The room mirrors are smoky glass, like it was from the 1970’s. **The light switch plate in the bathroom was industrial metal, not matching, and very ugly. Be sure to ask where you room faces. Our room opened to a four-sided courtyard within the hotel. So, all our views were of other hotel rooms. On an up note, located on Pershing Square, this hotel is a good location for visiting much of Downtown LA.…
