The Luxe on Sunset is a luxury hotel located at the corner of the 405 and Sunset Blvd at the edge of Beverly Hills.  Do not be confused as there also is a Luxe Hotel Beverly Hills located on Rodeo Dr.  In fact there are several Luxe Hotels in Los Angeles.

The Luxe Swimming Pool

Cost:$$
Hotel Decor: 89 Typical of a Los Angeles hotel, The Luxe has great outdoor lounging areas .  You feel like you are in your own private garden eventhough you are right next to a highway.  The hotel is older but has very modern decor in the rooms although nothing spectacular.
 
Hotel Amenities: 88 The rooms are spacious and quiet.  There are two levels and the back upper level is probably the quieter although older level.  The rooms are also closer to the pool.  The resort has a great spa thatmany locals seem to use. 
Neighborhood Scene: 91 As you can see in the pool photo, the hotel is situated below and near the Getty museum.  nothing is walkable and taxis are not easy to find.  You are a 10-15 minute drive from Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Westwood and UCLA.  Shopping on trendy Rodeo and Richardson are both very near.
 
Miscellaneous: The closest airport is Burbank and although closer, renting a car is probably the best thing. 
Overall Wow Factor: 89  When I was there, President George W. Bush was staying in the main wing of the hotel.  As I waited around the lobby bar in the morning, Justin Timberlake walked through the hotel lobby as did Tom Brady.  There seemed to be plenty of  classic roadster cars being pulled up to the valet one after another.  There wasn’t a single car in that lot under $45K-$50K . The hotel is not flashy, but definitely had the coolness factor which showed that the hotel had all the class in the world with any of the pomp and circumstance.  This was old school Hollywood and not the Nouveau Hollywood as the conceierge told me.
