Discover our historic hotel in downtown Los Angeles

Soon to be celebrating our 100-year anniversary – and having recently added the ‘Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument’ accolade to our mantle – Millennium Biltmore Los Angeles is the grand dame of downtown and this district’s most historic hotel.

Our beaux-arts institution has impressed guests and locals since the glory days of Old Hollywood, capable of entertaining a galaxy of stars, dignitaries and presidents from around the world. Having played host to a golden-era prohibition nightclub, numerous Academy Awards ceremonies, and feature film sets throughout the years – you’ll wish these gilt walls and painted ceilings could talk. 

Our three ornate towers stretch above the ballrooms below, giving guests a view of the stunning Pershing Square. And with the booming arts and cultural scene of downtown Los Angeles just outside, you can easily explore and discover the true spirit of Tinseltown. 

Take your pick from our variety of restaurants and bars or take a cooling dip in the indoor pool that still feature the original brass railings and ornate blue tiling from the Roaring Twenties. It’s time to visit LA in true Hollywood style.
