Hotel enjoys an ideal location on Sunset Boulevard and has a pool
Travelers say valet parking is pricey and bathrooms are on the small side
Recent guests offered mixed reviews for The Grafton on Sunset. Travelers raved about the iconic location, smack dab in the middle of the Sunset Strip, and the friendly, attentive staff. Reviewers also praised the outdoor saltwater pool and the complimentary shuttle, which can transport guests within a 3-mile radius of the hotel. But lodgers were more divided on the rooms, which were renovated in 2015: some liked the decor (a combination of leather and metal finishes with red accents), while others couldn't get past the small size of the bathroom and the pricey room rates. Aside from decorative touches, each room comes equipped with a 37-inch HDTV, complimentary Wi-Fi access and a minifridge, among other amenities. The same color scheme continues throughout The Grafton, including in its on-site steakhouse and bar. Past guests were complimentary of the restaurant, but also suggested exploring off the property as the hotel is within easy reach of some tasty West Hollywood eateries. But even with its enviable location, some reviewers were unsure about making a repeat visit for the parking fee alone: the hotel charges $40 a night for its valet-only service.

Critic Reviews



Rooms are small, but large windows with plantation shutters and full-length mirrors help open the space up. Ask for a room facing the interior courtyard, both to avoid noise from the Strip and to overlook the heated saline-pool area with its mosaic-tile waterfall and striped lounge chairs.

Lonely Planet


Located on the famous Sunset Strip, this boutique hotel offers the largest saltwater pool in West Hollywood and a 24-hour fitness centre. All guest rooms feature free WiFi.


The clientele is mostly couples, though a good number of families are drawn to the saltwater pool, one of the largest in the area. It could be worth comparing rates with the nearby Le Montrose Suite Hotel, which has a rooftop saltwater pool plus a tennis court. 



A rehab gave the hotel some pizzazz, including lively décor such as zebra-printed Italian bedding, oversized photographic prints and a heated saltwater pool (which means no need for toxic chlorine).

With its modern, edgy vibe, there’s not much about The Grafton on Sunset that screams family accommodation. Still, kids will love the heated saltwater pool, which is the largest on Sunset Boulevard. And the location can’t be beat for exploring Hollywood: The Hollywood Walk of Fame sits 2 miles from the hotel, and another 5 miles beyond that is the Hollywood Sign.
