We stayed 3 nights at the Millennium Biltmore over Memorial Day weekend and enjoyed our stay. The public areas of the hotel, particularly the lobby and the Rendezvous court are magnificent and they really did make us feel as we stepped back in time to the 1920's. We stayed on the 11th floor, which is the club level, and our room appeared to have been upgraded with a canopy over the bed, and appeared very classy, but had some dated quirks, especially in the bathroom. The bathtub drained very s... Read more

Nicely located in Downtown LA. One or two tips to share: the restaurant in the hotel, Smiraldi's, is good and decently priced but is closed on Sundays. For good restaurants, head down Grand Avenue and turn right on 6th. Good restaurants, e.g. Spear, down there. If you arrive by car, park in Pershing Square (on Olive Street). It's just over the road from the hotel and way cheaper than hotel valet parking.

The pictures and description of the hotel definitely live up to reality. The furniture and design of the hotel is very much in keeping with a 1920's feel. The hotel is located in the financial district but we found the area very quiet especially at night, fortunately it's very easy to get to other places such as a Santa Monica, Disneyland, Hollywood and Universal Studios. I was very surprised that the WIFI was not free and an extra $10 had to paid for only 24 hours! Frankly I thought this was a ... Read more

We just spent 2 nights at the Millenium Biltmore in Los Angeles and found it to be great. The hotel itself is very beautiful, the history amazing. The rooms were in keeping with the hotel's age, with a modern touch. We had a double Queen bed room. The parking was a little pricey at $45 per night, valet. It's very central and was easy to find and check into. The staff were very nice and helpful. Wifi wasn't free unfortunately. But overall we enjoyed our stay in this beautiful, historical hotel.

We stayed here for two nights as a family for four adults. The hotel is beautiful - all old-fashioned glamour - and they are clearly proud of the building's history as the original host of the Oscars ceremonies! This is not the place for someone after a slick modern city hotel, but perfect for those looking for a bit of culture and history. Rooms were large, comfortable and clean, although the whole place could do with a little work. Little things like broken bits on window shutters and chips o... Read more

When you enter the hotel you can tell it's been part of a long and interesting history, the lobby and dining rooms are beautiful and kept well. I can see how great events have taken place here. However if you go up to your room, your in for a surprise: for roughly 400 Dollars a night you get yourself a tiny, stuffy, old room that was last renovated before I was born for sure. It wasn't very clean either. So value for money- not so much I'm afraid...

I was just at the Biltmore for a conference on sustainability in the built environment. We were conference organizers and picked the Biltmore, in part, because it is not very sustainable to tear down the existing building stock if it has historical significance and is in excellent condition.

First of all Trip Advisor needed to Adjust the rating. It is a huge jump in my mind to go from VERY GOOD to Average. Whatever happened to just "GOOD"?

This hotel is exceptionally good for personal service. They strive to meet your needs and will do whatever they can to assist you. The hotel is wonderfully decorated and is pleasant to just be in. The rooms are very comfortable. But in my opinion, the true measurement of a hotel is how they fix problems, because you can always stay somewhere but the question is would you want to stay there again. I will stay here again!

It is a beautiful hotel if you are looking for the grandeur of old. The rooms are of adequate size however there is no bureau and the bathroom is tiny. The biggest issue is the NOISE. I can take a loud air conditioner, but several times the noise from the street, 7 floors below, awakened me and the fan in the bathroom was so noisy that I turned the light on only to shower! Spend a bit more on new windows and fans and the experience would be great.

I don't usually do reviews but I've been very disappointed with this hotel. It's way too expensive for what it is and it's also very loud from the outside fans and the traffic. The shower didn't work properly, the windows are old, it doesn't have a main light in the room so you have to turn on the bedside table light or the hall light. Also the room was quite small for a two double bed room. The wifi was also very slow. For $200-$300 you can find something way better.

I love old grand hotels in downtown American cities and the Biltmore is one of them. But this one disappoints. It has a great history and needs to mind that better. Chipped paint in my room, carpet not tacked down are just two examples. The club lounge is minimal at best--felt like management simply checked the box, "yes we have a club floor". I would call the fitness center, "the museum of fitness". Old and tired additionally it lacks sufficient equipment for a hotel this size. The rate wa... Read more

I didn't know that this hotel had so much history until I walked into the lobby... this is a hotel that opened to business in 1923 and clearly had a lot of history in terms of the social scene, location and is now -as I understood- a LA protected heritage building. The interiors are very well done, location is great: downtown,, 300 m away from the subway and so many attractions, night life...etc My trip to LA was short, but I am glad that I stayed at the Biltmore, just to get a taste of the hote...

Whilst the public spaces in this venerable old hotel are beautiful, much of the rest of my experience has so far been very disappointing. The Room: - bathroom smells strangely of diesel fuel oil? - no bottled water (even for purchase) in the room. Left me drinking the disgusting tap water this morning. - no 24hr room service??? Its midday and I cant order room service lunch?!! Not great given that I'm currently on crutches - no hangers in my closet at all. None! Also no dry cleaning/valet paper... Read more

I stayed at the Millennium Biltmore in LA for a recent work trip. I came from Long Beach via the Metro and the hotel was conveniently located about a 10 min walk from the 7th St. / Metro Center stop. The hotel is beautiful. The hotel architecture and decor has been wonderfully preserved and seeing it in person is quite impressive. It really harkens back to the days of old Hollywood glitz and glamour. They do not make hotels like this anymore. My hotel room was comfortable and clean. The bed... Read more

This really depends on what you are looking for. If you want a modern all singing and dancing hotel. this is not for you. But if you want to stay at a hotel with character. charm and amazing history and enjoy its little quirks then this is the place. It is a place to add to the tourist list on its own merit. The rooms are good , nice size, the service is good and close to the metro and restaurants. This is a place i will have fond memories of as it is so unique.

The hotel has been restored to its 1920 grace. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The rooms are large and the furniture practical and comfortable. The bathrooms are being updated again to conform to California's low water usage requirements. We enjoyed the stay and the great central location.

While this hotel is a bit pricey it is a walk back in time. The rooms are adequate with small bathrooms but if you can afford a suite you will be most happy! Lots of great art and the Bar is a great place to gather with friends!

The hotel staff was VERY friendly and helpful. The hotel is beautiful - very ornate in the style of the 1920s. Rooms were very comfortable. I stayed on the 6th floor and it was great. Friends who stayed on 3rd floor complained of lumpy carpets and peeling paint. Maybe lower rooms are in the process of being renovated. Great bar, friendly bartenders. I loved sitting in the beautiful lobby. I would definitely stay here again!

Stayed for 3 nights in October before moving onto Las vegas. Hotel lobby and ground floor area was beautiful and i love that the photos they displayed showed the grandiose and History of the hotel. Rooms are quite dated along with corridors ..carpets nearly tripped me twice However it was clean and service was good.

I made a prepaid reservation at this hotel on November 8. When I tried to check into this hotel at 12:30, the hotel desk clerk told me that my reservation had been cancelled. I told her how could this have happened since I had a paid receipt for my hotel room and a charge on my American Express card. She said there were no rooms available and my reservation had been cancelled. She offered no other assistance and no compensation for the inconvenience. I never received an email notifying me o...

Millennium should be embarrassed to put their name on this hotel. The staff is friendly enough but it ends there. Our room is shabby and dark, no A/C and the windows are so thin you can hear every car in downtown LA. Stay somewhere else.

Stayed for a conference so it was very convenient for the meeting. The area is great - plenty of options for walking to restaurants and bars. The hotel has a nice bar but the restaurant is overpriced for average food. We were initially placed in a room that smelled old and musty - I get that its a historic hotel but it should still be clean and fresh. We requested another floor and were given a "recently renovated" room, which was much better. The layout was a little odd because it was an... Read more

This hotel was built in 1923, was the location of the first several Academy Awards, and the public rooms are absolutely gorgeous. I think holding an event, dinner, or conference at this hotel could be lovely. I spent a civilized hour sipping a white wine in the lounge with a beautiful fountain in the middle, and very attentive and polite wait staff who knew exactly when to check in and when to let us talk. Staying there, however, was not great. I can overlook getting a dark room overlookin... Read more

If you're looking for a hotel in downtown Los Angeles that's located just a few blocks from Disney Hall, The Dorothy Chandler Pavillion and both the Broad and MOCA art museums, the Millennium Biltmore is a very convenient choice. The rates are reasonable and you can usually get good deals on Trip Advisor. The hotel has recently been renovated. The lobby is gorgeous and the service is excellent. The only downside is you've got to like the hustle and bustle of a big commercial hotel. The Biltm... Read more

I see there are some negative reviews so I'll start by saying we had one of the renovated rooms. We were on the 9th floor (room 978) and the room was huge and comfortable. We had a fridge and free wifi. Desk, nice big comfy chair, large closet, plenty of hangers and great pillows. The bed was average. The hotel was built in the 1920s and so there still signs of that. Our room was very clean. The staff was incredibly helpful. Smeraldi's in the hotel was excellent. The hotel is simply stunning and... Read more

Location was awesome, almost centrally located with convenience to public transit. The hotel has a rich interior in the reception and all common places, but when it comes to room, they lack a bit. The feel of a historic rich, is not felt in the rooms. Most of the rooms do not have a view, luckily we had one.

The reception rooms are as beautiful and elegant as expected. It was certainly a look of yesteryear. However, our room was decidedly tired and needed a good face-lift. The bathroom was tiny with really only room for 1 person. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice. Room service was excellent and the food was reasonably priced, hot and beautifully presented.

Hotel with lots of history. Conference roomsand ballrooms have amazing ceilings. Rooms are small but nice. Took away one star because cashier put $100 hold on my debit card without informing me. $45 to park overnight. Near restaurants.

I've read other reviews about 'tired 'rooms however ours was quite nice. The bathrooms are a bit small, our doort scraped on the toiletr, but everything else was fine. We had a little view but found the rooms fairly quite enough-although I think the cleaning staff banged about a bit with their trolleys.we were on the 7th floor. We had the breakfast downstairs but for the price I'd go around the corner to another cafe. We didn't try the dinner in house but recommend 'Karls; around the corner on W... Read more

Fantastic classical architecture. This hotel is iconic and used in so many movies it feels like a set. Gorgeous architectural details no wonder it was the home and former host of the academy award shows. It was nicely done for the holiday season. Very good downtown LA location and great amenities.

Spent 4 nights here and had deliberately chosen this hotel due to its history and landmark status. It is an impressive building and the interior decoration is magnificent (particularly in the lobby and adjoining rooms). We were on the 9th floor, the room was spacious and had a view. Our intention was to explore the city and the hotel is an excellent base to do so (very good links for public transport). The concierges were worth their weight in gold, they ably and professionally assisted us not o... Read more
