Tucked away on a residential street, this charming unassuming hotel used to be the residence of Charlie Chaplin. Comprised of several tudor style bungalows this is not a full service hotel by any means and really is more for guests that want to experience living in the city rather than just visiting. There is a communal patio with a fire pit and the rooms all stream in tons of natural light. The designers have struck a perfect balance of retaining the original architecture while updating the decor and appliances so that it has a whimsical, modern feel. It is within walking distance to several bars/restaurants in West Hollywood and truly is a hidden gem in the middle of the city.

This secret hideaway used to belong to an A-list actor who used his namesake property to throw parties out of the paparazzi's lens. I’m talking about Charlie Chaplin (not Sheen) so you can leave the disinfectant at home. “The Little Tramp” was originally from England so there’s a bit of Britain in these fairy tale cottages, which each takes its name from a Hollywood star that stayed there Marilyn, Bette and Clark (if you don’t know the last names then this isn’t the place for you). Although each cottage has its own magical charms (open beamed ceilings, private balconies, powder room) they all bask in the glow of natural light and offer lush views of the rose garden. The refurbished rooms are impeccably decorated with vintage designs and outfitted with the latest technology (smart TVs). This is not a full-service hotel (no gym, restaurant) other than the free parking, but more of a destination staycation that’s also pet-friendly.

If "Le Vie En Rose" was a hotel, it would be The Charlie. Okay, this place is MAGICAL. If you want to feel the real heartbeat of Hollywood and soak up the vibes of the golden age of motion pictures, then you have to stay here! The Charlie is a not your average hotel. It's made up of tutor style apartments and homes that you can rent out. It's AWESOME! The property was owned by Charlie Chaplin at one time. You feel like The Tramp might shuffle around the corner at any moment! Definitely recommend staying at this enchanted hidden gem!

Unusual, Historical, Secluded and Stunning! This property is old Hollywood charm and class. Once owned by Charlie Chaplin, it is a beautiful property that offers a selection of bungalows all named after the famous stars that have occupied them. You won't be able to see it from the street, it is expertly hidden to ensure guests privacy. The experience is not like staying in a hotel and if you are able to stay book well in advance, as it is virtually always sold out. There is no restaurant or fancy spa. History buffs looking for an authentic piece of Hollywood history will love it.
