The Grafton on Sunset

West Hollywood, Los Angeles

The hotel

With more rock ‘n’ roll energy than Steven Tyler’s microphone stand — you've got to be at the Grafton on Sunset. Discover chic rooms, a gem of a courtyard pool and a funky urban vibe, with a B-side of sass. And, all this within swaggering distance of legendary night spots like The Viper Room. You can escape the paps outside with a hand-crafted cocktail at the hotel bar. Then enjoy the edgy elegance of your guest room — think mirrored walls, leather, metal and the occasional rock-themed nod, of course.

I would love to have given this hotel a great review but it is absolutely not possible. Go elsewhere if you can. After a fun night out with friends for a holiday dinner, the only thing necessary was a good night sleep and that did not happen. The hotel is under construction, and you will read that in many other posts here. There is very very little signage to alert you that you are at the right place, since the front of the hotel/restaurant where there should be signage does not exist at this time. But the worst of it was having a jack hammer start hammering at 6:30am and did not stop. I was told after I called to complain at 7:30, thinking this can't be real, that it would stop, but it did not. I finally packed up my belongings at 8am and left. The ONLY thing I needed was a good night sleep and that was not going to happen. No rooms at this hotel can avoid the construction noise, as mine was way down at the opposite end of the hotel from it. I was told they are not supposed to start until 10am but that was obviously ignored. I did email the manager to share my very unpleasant experience and I was credited a $32.00 amenities charge. When I asked for a full refunded I was offered some lower rate next year for a two night min. stay. Sorry but I will never give me business again to a hotel that disregards their customers so much.

Virgin package multi trip, but my choice of the hotel. Stayed here between 26th November and 29th December 2021. On arrival the front had the builders in and it was not clear where the other entrance was, the only sign was pointing down a steep slope to the rear carpark nothing read where the main entrance had moved to, the temporary entrance is in the carpark. Quite nice when you walk in pool area nice and clean. We were very early and expected bags to be taken and stored, which wasn't a problem , after the desk had made a phone call stating how early we were and we were, whispered they're British, all of a sudden the room was ready, alarm bells started in my head. Room was $32 per night resort fee plus a deposit on your card, ok not a problem as yet!. We were taken to room 122, room is ground floor overlooking a grey block wall through the shuttered window literally 4ft away, the window wouldn't lock as the latch had no keep to fit into, just fitted upto the frame, but had a stop that allowed the window to open 6 inches or so not secure at all, felt a bit unsafe, ok we're only there to sleep, we'll make the best of it. Room was clean iron, safe provided, no hot water facilities for coffee or tea, a basic room and shower area. Reported the window, we went out exploring, noticed a service guy at the window immediately as we left the guy came and looked at it but it was the same on return. Our room from the outside was down a little alley down the side of the walk/car slope, this area had a gate which was open and broken with access to a couple of rooms at least, also a 8 ft ladder left there for some opportunistic burglar. Reception.. I asked about hot water.. I was told I could get some as the staff would fill a bottle on request from their staff room, I asked about cold water facilities for drinking water , I was told there isn't any but could take water from reception at $5 dollars a bottle that could be charged to your room .. I opted for the nearest shop, water at $5 dollars a case of 24! Yes as stated the room was used to sleep as we we're out all day so it was adequate. On leaving we were told there were no extras on our room and good to go. We left for our next adventure. Unfortunately when checking my credit card I had been charged $194, double the room resort fees, used their Web page left a message, left 2 emails which was blocked the 2nd time , used Facebook left a message used Instagram left a message , nothing in response. I can put up with substandard rooms or services to an extent but taking extra unauthorised payments is stealing in my book . Stay there .. but double check your moneys/ banking when you leave! Poor very poor . And I will leave this review on as many hotel sites as possible. Read less

The pros: my room was big and comfortable. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The location is a 15 minute walk to the gay bars of West Hollywood . The cons: I couldn’t find the entrance because of construction. The only exit is a steep walk up a driveway. The walls are a little thin. The bathroom was very small but the shower was big.

In a nutshell, the staff contributed greatly to my stay at the Grafton on Sunset! From the moment I pulled in with my rental car to the valet station on Oct. 12th, I was treated like a rock star! Bernard, the valet attendant extraordinaire, was so friendly and helpful! He greeted me with a big smile and insisted on helping me with my luggage. I was on my way to checking in within a couple of minutes. Loui at the front desk was equally as lovely, asking me how my day was and assisting me with the most hospitable demeanor. I should add that I looked a mess (au naturale, since I had been driving for hours in my comfy clothing). Loui directed me to my room and reiterated to let them know if there was anything that I needed to make my stay more enjoyable. I entered my beautiful room and instantly felt at ease. The decorations, bed, and sitting area were AWESOME! As I passed the front desk before heading out for the night, I told Loui I had forgotten my eyeliner and got the greatest tip on how to remedy my forgetfulness with what I did have with me. I was also told of a great little upscale convenience market where I could purchase some beer since the bar and restaurant were shutdown due to Covid precautions. The following day, I awoke early and had the pleasure of meeting Xavier. He was working alone at the front desk, managing to assist people with checking out and making sure others could get their pastries and coffee. He was so kind and helpful. Bernard had my key ready to retrieve my car before I made it to the valet station! It felt so nice to be remembered. It was really a pleasure to be treated so warmly by all three of the wonderful staff people I met during my stay. I have stayed at the Grafton on Sunset a few times over the years, but I must say that Bernard, Loui, and Xavier proved to be exceptional employees who really go above and beyond to make a guest feel welcome and important. I look forward to returning again and hopefully seeing the three of them again! Five stars to the Grafton! Read less
