Hotels >Maison 140
unusual rooms, not so much people, authentic property, excellent staff, favorite ironing board, extremely convenient wash, amazing service
Quaint hotel in Beverly Hills!. I stayed there one night and had an event there. The employees were extremely helpful and accommodating. The appetizers and service was amazing. The hotel is obviously old and small but has its inherent charm and good for small events. The room has Molten Brown shampoo!! (or hair wash as you Brits say) Parking is extremely convenient!
Classy, refined, and charming.....
This hotel is truly one of a kind. If you are looking for a big grand showy hotel, this place is not for you. The hotel focuses on the intimate and intricate. What I mean is the attention to detail you will find in such a historical and authentic property. As you will see, the authenticity is transpired to the staff that will attend to your every need in with the best of attitudes. I use to frequent other local hotels like the W Hotel in Westwood, which is a nice property, but is too loud and has way too pretentions of a crowd. Maison 140 is small, interesting, and seductive... the rooms couldnt have more charm and the clientele reflect flair of the hotel. Everyone I have met there is refined, intelligent, and appreciates good things in small packages (you should call and ask about their monthly wine tasting, probably the best deal in L.A)
I think this is one of the only treasures left in Los Angeles as we see an over saturated market of "Cheap-Chic" hotels that feel more like night clubs and truly disintergrate the hotel experience.
I wish you all well in your travels and hope that you get to experience Maison 140 of Beverly Hills at one point or another.
A refreshingly bold and seductive boutique inn for posh travelers..
Formerly a quiet B&B known as the Beverly House Hotel, the vibe is dark, in a cool, dramatic, Parisian way. Design maven Kelly Wearstler fused European chic with Asian flair for a uniquely inspiring look--lavish, almost campy, but distinctively stylish. The lobby lounge area mixes large, black Baroque furnishings with Oriental-esque red carpeting and sheer paneling.
None of the rooms are exactly alike--each has one-of-a-kind antiques and custom-designed furniture. One room is plastered from floor to ceiling in a pagoda-print wallpaper; another features a red velvet-tufted headboard. Expect custom-crafted mattresses and Egyptian cotton Frette bed linens, Philosophy toiletries, and dual-line phones. Use of the Avalon Hotel pool is included.
Fiercely loyal. This is a special little hotel, one that I could see some of my work colleagues not "getting." It's unusual looking, and the rooms are not huge or conducive to big-time-business-travel, but damned if it's not the best hotel staff in L.A. They look after me, and I know all of them. They make sure I get my favourite ironing board in my room (I know, I'm a geek). It's behind the Peninsula, and the location is great for work travel (Wilshire and Santa Monica). Go, and tell Marta and Raymond that I sent you!
Have a few drinks, then crash. This should really be kept a secret, but I want to show my appreciation with a great rating. This is Hollywood history at its best. Read up on the hotel if you're interested in all that. But, I've been to the bar several times. Always a treat. People are always cool and it's not so much of a "scene". Lots of Europeans with great traveling stories. The room was cool. Every bit of space is used to its maximum capability. Excellent toiletries and the staff really go out of their way to make sure that you enjoy your stay (thanks Raymond!).
loved it. I almost hate to tell people about Maison, but I must. It has the most beautiful bar, rooms and wall paper! I've stayed overnight (just to get away in the city I live) and never wanted to leave my room.I meet friend for drinks there a lot. Great people watching. It's filledwith the kind of people who pretend they don't want to be seen, but really do.
OH MY GOD. Are you kidding me? Overrated like you wouldn't believe. This place is stylish only at night. During the day you can see the cheap paint, the shoddy workmanship. Remember, this place was a fixer-upper. Style's there, quality is not. It's tinier than you think. The other clientele were lifeless. Supremely overhyped. The price is low for a reason.
We had the best time!!!
Great steff, great riooms, amazing design, you couldnt ask for more. Room rates great for the location (150.-) include breakfast!!!
Couldnt have a better stay!!!
