An exquisite experience at a delightful hotel
What a gem of a boutique hotel, I told all my friends and family to stay there next time they were in LA for fun or business. From the minute we arrived the service and attention to our experience were exquisite. Juliette who greeted us at the front desk was polite, professional helpful and made us feel welcome. Johnny at the valet service was courteous and so helpful. The beauty with Short Stories is that everything you need is right there at the hotel. The restaurant was very good, the bar fully stocked, and their pool seemed so inviting and peaceful, but if you need to leave the premises it is central to everything you can imagine wanting to do in West Hollywood and its adjoining neighborhoods. We will definitely go back.

Wonderful Stay
First time in USA visiting our daughter. Suggested that West Hollywood was a good location. Found this hotel which only opened recently and all reviews suggested this would be a good place to stay. Initially stayed for 3 nights and then after 3 nights in Vegas came back to Short Stories for 2 more nights. The great thing about this hotel was that you didn’t feel like you were staying in such a big city. Didn’t have the hustle and bustle of a large hotel and was very quiet and peaceful. All the staff were fantastic and couldn’t do enough to please. The courtyard was such a lovely place for breakfast and happy hour drinks in the afternoon. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. We wish we could have brought the pillows home with us :) one thing that seems to be a bit different in hotels in the US compared to Australia is that there was no tea and coffee making facilities provided although on request a kettle was provided. The location was also great with The Grove/Farmers Market directly AC Roos the road which has shopping, restaurants, take away food and picture theatre. The hop on hop off bus also stops directly opposite. There is a great coffee and donut place called sidecar a short walk also. Would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in LA and will stay there again on our next visit

Charming Hotel
My daughter and I went for a quick LA overnight. We were so pleased with this cute little hotel. The staff was personable, the room was clean (although we wished they had coffee in the room), the adorable courtyard was beautiful to sit in and enjoy a wine! The location was perfect for what we wanted to do, walking distance to where we wanted to go. I would highly recommend Short Stories.

Lovely hotel across the street from the Grove and Farmers Market. Gorgeous courtyard with beautiful trees to shade it. Wonderful service all around—all of employees were all just the nicest! We enjoyed happy hour on the patio. They brought our small dog a bed to rest on and fresh water. Lots of little touches like that. Definitely will be back!

Perfect spot for a solo trip!
Short Stories is an absolute gem! From the minute you walk in it feels calm and welcoming. The staff (Jazmin at check in) were kind and helpful and the welcome drink was a nice surprise. The decor throughout the hotel and in the rooms was well thought out. It felt high end without being pretentious. It was the perfect place to unwind for a couple of days after a bustling weekend at Universal. I’ll definitely be back!
