I love this place and keep coming back. I recently stayed here for almost a week. If you like the glamorous history of early Los Angeles, this is the place to be. It’s the classic elegant downtown hotel. The rooms are smaller because of the era it was built, but the lobby, the Rendezvous Court, the grand hall, all the ballrooms, etc., are amazing. I never get tired of them. The photos from the Golden Age of Hollywood and its history with the Oscars here are amazing. The staff is great. Christine, Robert, and Nick helped with anything I needed. The bar and staff are great too, some have been there for many years and can tell stories of serving Clint Eastwood and many others. It’s fun to be in a place where you suddenly recall a movie scene shot right where you are sitting. It’s an easy walk from here to Broadway with more great L.A. history such as the Grand Central Market, Clifton’s, the Arcade Building with amazing tacos/gelato/etc., the classic old theaters, the Bradbury Building, Biddy Mason memorial, etc. It’s the heart of Los Angeles. Outside Grand Central Market’s Hill Street entrance is the Angel’s Flight funicular train up Bunker Hill. For one dollar you can take the train up Bunker Hill, walk to Grand Ave. and back down to the Biltmore. When sitting in the Rendezvous Court with its beautiful Moorish Alhambra style ceiling, fountain, and calm serenity, it’s the place to be. Read less

The hotel atrium is beautiful and the history of the building is fascinating, but the hotel staff and room cleanliness was beyond subpar. First, I booked a room to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday and called ahead to request an amenity be sent ahead to help us celebrate. I was told amenities were suspended due to COVID-19. I thought, "Okay....well, maybe they will at least acknowledge her upon check-in." Not only did they not acknowledge her birthday, the front desk agent didn't even acknowledge us! We walked in all smiles, said a friendly "Hello!" and were greeted with, "Give me your ID." So, I handed her my ID and stood silently by while she went into the system to check our reservation. Not a signle word was exchanged again until she said, "Credit Card' and pointed to the pinpad where I was to insert my card. It beeped, I removed my card, she put the keys on the counter and said "1019". That was it. No explanation about lack of services or amenities due to COVID, no questions about our stay or if we had any questions or concerns, no acknowledgment of the special occasion, no information about the hotel, the area we were staying in, what was open, what was closed...nothing. So, we realized we were completely on our own to figure this place out. When we got to our room, the first thing we noticed was the canopy of drapes directly over the head pillows on the bed. My girlfriend was curious, so she took hold of one of the drapes and a giant pile of dirt and dust feel from the drapes onto the bed!! Disgusting! We removed the pillows that were now soiled, and realized we needed to make our own fun outside of the room and hotel. We did our own exploring around the hotel for a minute, and then managed to find our way over to Grand Central Market to grab something to eat. This was the highlight of our trip. We went back to the hotel and slept soundly through the night. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean, there was a coffee machine in our room for the morning, and the tv worked fine. In the morning during checkout, a new front desk agent was there and gave me the exact same amount of service as I received upon check-in. Go figure. We couldn't wait to get out of there, so the only plus side to the lack of customer service was that it expedited our exit from the Millennium Biltmore hotel. Read less

Inside of the hotel looks super stunning. However, our hotel rooms were much less than that. Honestly, I am really shocked this place has super high reviews. My mom and I got an executive room, but had to change rooms as there was a clump of hair on my bed that was clearly not mine or my mother's and clumps of dirt on the floor. The tube in the bathrooms was also chipped and looked rather grimy. So we called to get our room changed and when we got the room the lady at the front counter did not apologize and it seemed like it happened quite often. The next room seemed much cleaner but there was a lone dirty sock in the corner. We called again, and they had asked if we wanted to changed rooms or wanted someone to remove the sock. We chose to change rooms, because if they missed a sock while cleaning, how clean really was the room? We went down to the lobby to get our room changed. Again, no apology. We thoroughly inspected the third room and it seemed clean, atleast much cleaner than the previous. But I still felt very uncomfortable. My mom and I are not people to complain, but there are cleaner motel rooms than the rooms we had. Furthermore, the first room hallway we were in smelled very strongly of weed and we informed the lady at the front, but she didn't say anything about it, even though there is a no smoking policy for this hotel. Overall, not even close to impressed and this hotel does not live up to these reviews or its reputation. I wish I would have taken pictures, but I honestly felt super gross and didn't want to stay in those other rooms a second longer. Read less
