Desert Nights at the Standard hotel is a great way to check out bands in a casual—yet very Hollywood—setting. Wednesday nights.

As luxurious and understated as a perfectly cut Armani suit, the Beverly Wilshire is, appropriately, just steps from iconic Rodeo Drive boutiques like Versace and Cartier.

This luxury retreat in the Santa Monica Mountains is focused on exercise, nutrition, and a tech disconnect from everyday life. Ten hours of daily exercise, mostly hiking, is mandatory during the week-long stay, along with a regiment of yoga, stretching, and toning.

On a prime swath of Los Angeles real estate, this Spanish-style 201-room hotel mixes old-Hollywood touches with modern glam. Mediterranean elements skip from star lanterns and hand-painted tiles to lacy grillwork and brawny furniture with dark wood frames and nailhead trim.

Los Angeles–area painters and curators have transformed the industrial spaces of Culver City into a thriving art colony, and the metamorphosis at the Culver Hotel mirrors that resurgence. When the six-story property first opened in 1924, it quickly became a favored haunt of creative types.

Within walking distance of historic old town, restaurants, and museums, the Westin Pasadena offers 350 rooms, just 12 miles north of Los Angeles. From the mosaic reflecting pool out front to the heated rooftop pool, this 12-story property includes numerous relaxation options.

Located within a block of the lively Venice boardwalk, the look of this hipster hotel is one of uncluttered, new-styled retro. Accommodations include 119 rooms, many of them with balconies and a view of the city or ocean.
