So, whether it’s share-worthy moments in a picture-perfect hotel room or Instagram-worthy sun decks, find our collection of epic suggestions.
Remember! This is just a handful of selected hotels out of thousands we can book. We have a full range of services all at your fingertips, so let’s get talking!
Psst… if you didn’t already know we’ve got our very own office in LA…so why not pop by on your next visit?
What: Sitting on a lively stretch of the Sunset Strip, at the foot of the iconic Hollywood Hills, this hotel is as Hollywood as you get get, surrounded by a myriad of famous restaurants, bars, clubs and music venues. In the late 1960s and 1970s the hotel’s location made it the preferred Los Angeles accommodation for touring rock groups, notably English bands Led Zeppelin, The Who and the Rolling Stones. It was often referred to at the time as the Riot House, a play on the name Hyatt House. The hotel channels its wild history through the décor – huge murals of musicians in the double-height lobby, and music-flavoured art in all the bedrooms.
Where: 8401 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069
The Line Hotel
What: Promising an industrial-chic interior The Line Hotel in Koreatown, is definitely at the top of the millennial’s good design list. If you want an epic view, make sure to go for one of the ‘Hollywood Hills’ rooms and enjoy a breathtaking view of the Hollywood sign. Plus, make sure you don’t miss out on a visit to the Commissary restaurant, housed in a gorgeous tropical greenhouse, it’s one of the most Instagrammed restaurants in LA to date.
Where: 3515 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90010
The NoMad Hotel
What: Situated within a historic building, Giannini Place, formerly known as the Bank of Italy building, the hotel’s west coast outpost boasts 214 rooms, a glamorous rooftop pool, an Italian-inspired all-day café, and of course, its signature library, two restaurants and a bar. The interior presents a swanky 1920s neo-classical atmosphere, with a mirrored coffee bar on the lobby level, modelled after the 300 year old Caffe Florian in Venice, Italy.
Where: 649 S Olive St, Los Angeles, CA 90014
What: Avalon Hotel is a Beverly Hills boutique bolt-hole, that sports retro-fabulous ’50s furniture (think Charles Eames chairs, George Nelson lamps and tables by Isamu Noguchi) and a vintage hourglass-shaped swimming pool. With a full-service wellness studio in-house and their poolside restaurant Viviane, the Avalon Hotel rounds out a scene where you get to experience the casual “patio lifestyle” and laid back sophistication that is unique to Southern California.
Where: 9400 West Olympic Boulevard, Beverly Hills, CA 90212
Standard Downtown LA
What: The Standard, Downtown LA is one of two Standard Hotels in Los Angeles. The Standard has a svelte rooftop bar and pool, which oozes with hipster appeal and of course, Instagram-worthy views. What makes this hotel even better is it’s fantastic location – its’ only a hopscotch away from Hollywood and The Lot (extremely handy if you’re filming or visiting)!
Where: 550 S Flower St, Los Angeles, CA 90071
Ace Hotel LA
What: Originally built as the United Artists Building, this pioneering four star, 13-story hipster hotel presents a hybrid of Noir and shabby vintage chic with an intoxicating piece of LA cinematic history. The hotel contains the historic United Artists Theatre, the flagship theatre built for the United Artists motion picture studio, with regular events and gigs still being held here.
Where: 929 South Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90015
Beverly Hills Hotel
What: The Beverly Hills hotel’s history is laced with star-spangled romance: Elizabeth Taylor honeymooned here with six of her seven husbands; Faye Dunaway learnt how to swim in the pool; and a Yoko Ono and John Lennon ‘bed-in’ was staged in one of the bungalows. Old, classic Hollywood through and through, this hotel feels loved and lived in, with the most lavish of hotel decors running throughout. Don’t miss out on a spot to eat at the Polo Lounge, the site of many a Hollywood deal!
Where: 9641 Sunset Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90210
What: Named after the 26th president of the United States – Theodore Roosevelt, this hotel is right on Hollywood Boulevard (home to the Hollywood Walk of Fame) and is full to the brim with Hollywood royalty (it’s also where the first Academy Awards ceremony was held, way back in 1929). This iconic hotel has an amazing total of eight restaurants, bars and lounges on-site; our favourite being 25 Degrees (a 24-hour hamburger restaurant located just off the hotel lobby). Most of the 300 rooms and suites are in the Roosevelt’s original 1927 tower, all of which have been fabulously renovated with a mix of classic and contemporary accents.
Where: 7000 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90028
