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.

Week in LA

The hotel is older, but very well kept. It was the suggested hotel from this site, and it was very nice, and seemed priced appropriately. Continental breakfast was great, parking is kind of an issue though. They valet it for $40/night which is excessive, but there is a garage across the street. Also, the location is great if you're there for business, but not so convenient for sight seeing.

Beautiful, but missing some things!

The hotel is incredibly beautiful, but is missing amenities that are now standard at most Motel 6 facilities. For example, the hotel charges for WiFi, has no honor bar or refrigerator in the room, and only has ice machines and pop machines on every other floor. It was a bit disconcerting, to say the least. However, the staff was very polite and worked hard to be as helpful as possible.

Historic & lovely

Wonderful architecture and preserved the feeling of the period. Surprised by high ceilings and size of rooms. I had an inward facing room that had a generator nearby - I couldn't see it but it was like a semi truck idling outside my room all night. I ran the air conditioner (also noticeable) to "tame" the other noise. I was only staying 2 nights so did not ask to be moved. Wonder though if it was my discounted rate that got me that room. The only other item to mention is the elevators are very small and be prepared to wait 3-5 minutes.

Beautiful but terrible parking fee

The lobby was spectacular. It made me feel like I was in a 1920's movie. Bathroom was very dated but It goes with the charm of "old hollywood vibe". WORSE PART WAS THE $40.00 DAILY PARKING. If I would have known, I would have taken my $230.00 elsewhere. I ended up paying the "savings" on a daily parking rate. 5 days, $200 in parking fees is BOGUS AND INSULTING.

Amazing Indoor Pool!

The architecture is amazing! Be sure to check out the early 20th century tile pool in the basement of the hotel. It used to be a "gentleman's club!" and it reflects some wonderful examples of the artful California tile work of the 20's. " We could practically hear the ghosts of Hollywood's Golden Era toasting and boasting it up with each other wrapped in towels!

Horrible Customer Service and Rates

Valet customer service and instructions needs a lot of work. Also, the rates are insane! $40 a night for valet is too steep. Internet access is $10 a night. Most hotels have complimentary access. The hotel rooms look much nicer in the pictures than they are. I recommend remodeling the bathrooms in the hotel rooms.

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.
