About

#1 of 6 B&Bs / Inns in West Hollywood
Travellers' Choice
The Charlie provides exclusive luxurious accommodations to a worldwide clientele, whilst preserving the natural and historical beauty of the property's grounds. The landmark upon which The Charlie resides today was first built & established in 1924 by the Ruth Gordon family. Word has it that numerous movie star legends have roamed these grounds in the past, living out their glorious days to the fullest! Charlie Chaplin, Marilyn Monroe, and Gloria Swanson are only a few of such legends to name, to whom at one point or another The Charlie grounds were believed to have been a home! In 2002, threatened by re-development, this historical landmark was acquired by Menachem Treivush and has since undergone a multi-million dollar renovation. By carefully preserving historically-scrutinizing details, incorporating the technology of today, and dedicating careful attention to detail, Mr. Treivush has rapidly built up The Charlie into the unique establishment that it is today! Since re-opening to the public in 2008, The Charlie has become known as The Hidden Gem of the legendary West Hollywood!

Wonderfully quiet and old world feel in the middle of West Hollywood! The space of the suite was perfect and the Dylan has a real separate kitchen. The sofa in the living room was comfortable and made for enjoyable meeting.

Excellent change of pace. We wanted different from the cookie cutter norm and got it. Staff was excellent and stayed after hours to facilitate an after normal office hours check in. One hang up about booking these kinds of places is will they feel old and musty - you want the old world charm without the old world drawbacks and this delivered in spades. Bright, clean, and tastefully decorated. I booked the Betty and and was quite surprised by the size once in the unit. Pictures do not do it justice. Would stay again without a doubt. I minor deduction for a miss on replacing some of the toiletries during housekeeping.

Charming courtyards, great amenities with kitchen and laundry. Nearby to restaurants and shopping. Parking is great and staff are friendly and accommodating. Pet friendly. Good value, but some of the floor plans are set up a little quirky so ask questions before reserving if you have mobility concerns.

Every year, I take four to five days to write songs. I look for a quiet place, a location that will inspire me. I go alone, and I write with a guitar, a pen, a notebook, and now a cell phone to record my finished pieces, instead of a tape recorder with a cassette. The Charlie Hotel is a collection of suites/bungalows tucked away on a historic street, sandwiched between the rowdy Santa Monica Blvd, and the more tony part of Melrose Avenue, in West Hollywood. The moment I arrived, I was looked after. With a simple cell phone number provided, I could text what I needed to staff , and I would be seen to. I began my stay at The Dylan, which, with its polished wood floors, bookshelves and vintage bathroom tiling, felt like stepping into a quieter time period, when vacation meant reading, sitting, sipping tea, not hurrying. Bed was firm and pillows meant instant sleep. I began to write the next day, and fairly effortlessly, unbothered. In fact, ideas were coming to me so easily, I decided to stay longer, and was upgraded to The Marlene, a larger bungalow space adjacent to Charlie Chaplin's private residence. I was aware of the presence of others, but never felt bothered. It was phenomenal, to be alone in a city as large as Los Angeles, to feel safe, looked after, yet entirely in solitude. Walks around the area fed my imagination. I can only hope the City of Los Angeles realises the treasures it has here, and chooses to preserve and protect the little bungalows and Art Deco apartments in this neighborhood. My stay rendered 10 songs. And leaving felt a bit heartbreaking. I'd have lived in that bubble much longer, had the real world not summoned. And so, reluctantly, I recommend The Charlie, but only because it is so wonderful I wished I could keep it my secret, and afford to go there again and again. Thanks to the wonderful, kind and helpful staff and to those who keep this one of a kind place alive. You are indeed a family I could come home to, and here's hoping I can, with some frequency.
