A hidden paradise in Hollywood

During our business trip in the US this month we had the chance to spend two nights at the Petit Ermitage hotel in West Hollywood. With its rather secret and intimate atmosphere, this hotel has been our prefered stop. It is relaxing, quiet, comfortable and has a unique, genuine identity with a very seducing art collection. A few minutes after checking in, we went upstairs to enjoy the rooftop pool with all the striped couches. It was so calm ! And pretty romantic too with a very hip playlist ! You can basically enjoy amazing cocktails under faux-fur blankets by the pool…

That alone would have set the bar pretty high ! We’ve been introduced to the cocktail master Brian who simply hit a homerun with his inspired drinks. Although the room was as pleasant as the rooftop (a big bed, sitting area, large TV, spacious floor to ceilling mosaic bathroom, plus a very well stocked mini-bar), we woke up early to get a brunch in the rooftop garden which is another preview of what the paradise looks like. Green, calm, peaceful, delicious. Plus the staff has been fantastic throughout our stay. A coup de coeur for us !

One of our best hotel experiences ever ! The attention to details is really obvious : from tassel slippers to olives in the mini bar, the Petit Ermitage hotel and its incredible rooftop was friendly, cosy and beautiful. I would have expected the price to be much higher. So if you’re near Los Angeles, make sure you make a stop there !!
