I booked this hotel knowing that I would be traveling on Amtrak all day and wanted somewhere nice to stay after a long day of travel.

I booked this hotel knowing that I would be traveling on Amtrak all day and wanted somewhere nice to stay after a long day of travel. There were less expensive hotels in the area, but I wanted something nice. I am dumbfounded by the cheap quality that abounds. I'm writing this from a tattered broken desk chair in my room that will fall over if I lean back. Upon arrival, no one gave me instructions on using wifi and there were no linens in the room. After calling down to housekeeping for linens, they arrived in a wadded up heap and are the cheapest, scratchiest, dingiest towels and washcloths you can imagine. The toilet paper and tissue paper are likewise the cheapest, thinest, scratchiest versions I have seen. I definitely regret booking a room here. Read less

This was our 2nd time staying & loved our time here just as much as years before. It’s a lovely hotel with rich history & beautiful architecture. Service was great. Big shout out to Bill Paz who helped us find a package we had to have shipped directly to the hotel. Rooms were clean, hotel was clean, due to Covid only the snack shop and the bar (with short hours) were open, the service was good in both of those spots. Great food/drinks close (we walked to lots of fun spots) and the Metro is right across the street. Can’t wait to go back Read less

It is apparent that the Millennium Biltmore is trading on with the hotel once was and not what it is today. The overall experience was horrible.

It is apparent that the Millennium Biltmore is trading on with the hotel once was and not what it is today. The overall experience was horrible. They charged many additional fees including a hotel facilities fee. I'm not exactly sure what that was for because it didn't even meet the minimum standard. The hotel did not have valet parking anymore, the restaurant was closed, the rooms were poorly kept and stocked. The first room that we were given before we asked to be moved at multiple cigarette burns on the nightstands, the entire floor including a room smell like marijuana. The hotel elevators had an overwhelming smell of marijuana. We paid an additional fee for breakfast at the restaurant. The restaurant was closed and all that was offered for the $45 additional per day was a walkout counter that was equivalent to bowling alley snack bar. We checked in online but word for when we arrived that system wasn't working properly and had to wait additional 45 minutes to check in with the inadequately staffed front desk. After raising concerns about the overwhelming smell of marijuana in the hotel nothing was ever done. We weren't given our voucher for the $45 per day breakfast fee we paid until day two and was never refunded the difference despite asking multiple times. The experience as a whole has poor and we will not return. Don't let the beauty of the hotel lead you to believe the experience will be the same. Read less

The room itself was really big, and very nice - and at a surprisingly low rate, we were even able to afford a small suite.

The room itself was really big, and very nice - and at a surprisingly low rate, we were even able to afford a small suite. The staff were great - though there were few of them - but the overall sense was *not* of a luxury hotel. More like a cut-rate place that had inherited some great staff and beautiful rooms. But there were some things I'd want to make other travellers aware of: 1) even though we requested a quiet room, there is still a LOT of traffic noise. This is fine, it's Downtown LA. It's no one's fault. But it is loud. 2) the in-room amenities are basic. Hardly better than a travelodge. The toiletries are kinda lousy and the coffee-maker is dire. They don't even supply little pots of half-and-half. So you're having tea from a coffee-bag and fake creamer. Yuck. Also: no bath robes or slippers so if you use the pool you need to bring a change of clothes. It's not a huge issue, but it's a bit low-rent 3) watch out for stealth charges. We ended having to pay 25 USD a day for 'amenities fee', and then another 30 or so per day for 'occupancy tax.' We weren't expecting either charge and might have changed our choice. 4) Finally, DTLA is in a tough place at the moment. The area immediately around the hotel is okay, but if you go much further afield it does not feel safe or welcoming. Read less
