The Charlie

819 N. Sweetzer Ave. (Melrose Ave.) West Hollywood CA

This storied L.A. property enjoys new life as a hidden-gem boutique hotel.

Built in 1924, the historic property that houses The Charlie is rumored to have been home through the years to an impressive tenant list of Hollywood legends like Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin and Gloria Swanson. Thanks to a multimillion dollar refurbishment that kept quirky original details in place while also bringing the hotel up to 21st-century speed, guests can now overnight on the same site where these iconic celebrities once worked and played. The fairy tale-like location puts visitors within walking distance of trendy West Hollywood boutiques and eateries. Behind closed gates, The Charlie’s 17 private bungalow accommodations enclose a lovely courtyard, all boasting names honoring Hollywood stars like the Betty, the Valentino and the Marlene. Each cozy option includes a furnished kitchen, sitting room, private patio and washers/dryers. There aren’t a lot of fancy amenities like pools or fitness centers here, but parking is free, and for visitors seeking a quiet refuge and a taste of local lore in the heart of La-La Land, The Charlie is just the ticket.
