The hotel, nestled in a residential neighborhood (the property was an apartment building in a former life) sneaks up on you and can easily be missed. The valet dressed in ivy and the entryway is flanked with gas burning lanterns, which made me feel very at home arriving at 2 am; a flickering glowing beacon. My suite, if one might call this a suite, I suspect was larger than many residences in the busy surrounding
neighborhood and provided all the comforts of home. A step-down living room, fireplace, kitchen, well-appointed bath (who doesn’t like C.O. Bigelow?), and large screens and technology throughout. The Moroccan theme and colors magenta, mustards and browns make one feel very at home. Moreover, I spent more than five hours at the rooftop private club, pool, and restaurant and bar and report they are all top-notch and not a single complaint. If I were to identify any detractions I might mention the very, very small elevator and, albeit well-appointed, the very small bath (even in my suite); not to mention Bellmen in Moroccan attire including headdress, yet wearing Nike athletic shoes – a mild oversight. Such small things will never get in the way of my next visit.
Would I recommend Petit Ermitage you ask? But of course. I not only recommend a stay with the Petit Ermitage, but I’m also already planning my return. Next time with targets set on a romantic weekend. Petit Ermitage fits the bill.
