My husband and I stayed in a standard Hollywood room. The room didn't have a view, and it was quite small, but decor was nice and the bed comfy. The bathroom in this room type could do with a refresh. It was a shower over bath with a shower curtain (yuck) and the shower head was VERY low. I'm only 5ft, so no issues for me, but anyone taller would need to squat or kneel to be able to wash their hair. Overall, chateau staff were nice and friendly. Check in was easy and we were helped to get our luggage to the room. Some bar staff seemed a little inexperienced and could maybe do with some training. The lounge and common areas of the property are as grand as you'd expect from this iconic hotel - very old school. Breakfast was expensive, and although our booking confirmation said breakfast was included, we were told that was not correct, and were charged for it. At $29.50 pp, not good value unless you are a big breakfast eater (which I am not). But overall, the room was good value for the price, we enjoyed our stay, and we would stay again.

The property has kept it's pre depression style which is cool. The bed was comfy and good hot water in the bathroom. I did find that hallway noise was easily heard in my room. Ate in the restarant and cafe for dinners and the food was yum.
