HOTEL REPORT: Chamberlain West Hollywood Celebrates Grand Re-Opening With Rooftop Party

by Don Rose
The Chamberlain Hotel held its grand (re-)opening on August 30th, hosting a super soiree with smooth sounds, savory snacks, superb sweets and self-serve snapshots! The rooftop affair brought out about 100 guests, ranging from hospitality insiders to hotel staffers, press, VIPs, and a bathing beauty in a bubble to boot (say that ten times fast). The party's savory edibles included crabcakes, bruschetta with ham, shrimp, risotto fritters, chicken bites and more, plus an item I'd never seen or tried before (fried pickles - surprisingly delicious). Delectable desserts included funnel cake bites and chocolate tarts. The view from the roof was also quite enjoyable, especially at sunset.

Lovely libations flowed as well, with champagne and other assorted drinks available for guests at two bars. Handmade specialty sno-cones proved popular with the poolside patrons, served by the Chamberlain's friendly staff.

Overall, it was a most excellent party to celebrate this "home away from home", ideal for celebs and corporate road warriors (and anyone) wishing to stay in the heart of hip Hollywood / West Hollywood while avoiding paparazzi and unwanted noise. The secluded block where the Chamberlain is located is super quiet, yet is just a couple of blocks south of the Sunset Strip, 2 blocks west of La Cienega, and a block north of Santa Monica Blvd (yes, only a one minute walk to the fantastic shopping paradise that is Trader Joes, and a Starbucks a few feet away). Staying at the luxurious Chamberlain (now with renovated rooms) is like residing in an upscale condo, and the personable personnel are a big plus as well.

So don't be shy, give it a try!
For staycation or vacation, let the Chamberlain be your destination.
(No, I wasn't paid for that slogan... but I am open to offers!)
