Downtown Travel Guide
Hotels in Downtown
This octogenarian grande dame has never looked more beautiful—although, like many L.A. ladies, she’s had some work done. The hotel’s 1923 Italian-Spanish Renaissance interiors are textbook elegant, with refurbished hand-carved wood detailing, ornate gilded ceilings, and magnificent chandeliers.
Restaurants in Downtown
This chic rooftop bistro settled atop the Pershing Square Building may not be the highest point in downtown, but the unique view gives you the delicious illusion that you’re floating amid the skyscrapers.
Things to do in Downtown
