Bit of work, bit of play.
A gym with levity.
Welcome vibes. 'Play My Piano' by Olivia Steele.
If you're looking for a slick and modern room, move on. If you're looking for large, cozy rooms you're exactly where you need to be.
Mini bar deliciousness.
Room view. There were humming birds buzzing around just outside my window...for a British New Yorker, this was something special.
The rooftop pool, restaurant and bar. Guests and members only.
Not a bad office for the week. Rooftop vibes.
Rooftop fireplace heaven.
Petit Ermitage was once an old apartment building. It's located on a quiet street in West Hollywood. Perfection.
Highs + Lows
The rooftop pool/garden/restaurant is enchanting with Kumquat trees and humming birds. And it’s restricted to members and hotel guests only, so it’s never a madhouse.
Friday night cabaret on the rooftop Masters Lounge is incredible. You have to catch Toledo’s show!
The location is perfect, pretty and quiet.
There’s a surprise around every corner - from the Olivia Steele neon artwork to the reception cookie jar, the bathroom/ATM ‘artwork’ and the outdoor rooftop fireplace…there’s a sense of true wonderment everywhere.
Rooms could do with a little refurb, but they’re huge.

Magical, unexpected and whimsical. This hotel is not for everyone (thankfully).

Reassuringly expensive deliciousness from the Gjelina team. The food is outrageously good.

(I know, three restaurants...but worth it!) West Hollywood’s ‘fancy’ restaurant, but not douchey. Incredible cocktails and perfect (albeit trendy) brussels sprouts!
