The Charlie Hotel. Located on a shady and quiet side street, The Charlie Hotel is actually a small complex of charming English-style bungalows that once used to belong to Charlie Chaplin. A number of classic Hollywood stars are rumoured to have lived or at least spent time on the grounds of this gorgeous boutique hotel, including Marilyn Monroe and Gloria Swanson.
I had a huge king-size bed in a bedroom with tons of windows and french doors separating it from the living room. There was a large bathroom with a washer and dryer, a small, but full kitchen with an eat-in dining area, and an ivy-lined private patio.
- Call the hotel or book directly via the website for a sweet bonus package that includes a free gift and welcome treat upon arrival, upgrade if available, guaranteed late checkout, and some other goodies. The lowest rates on the site were exactly the same as what I found on the discount sites, and if you find something better, you can contact management for a matched rate. It's worth it!
