From grand historic properties to design-forward boutique hotels, the best hotels in Los Angeles offers a pillow perfect for every person, no matter their taste.

Given the size and variety of the metro area itself, the city’s hotels reflect a similar amount of diversity. When deciding where to stay in Los Angeles, consider where you want to spend your trip, whether it’s by the beach or strategically close to a noted shopping district. Iconic properties like the Beverly Wilshire and West Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont still serve two popular areas with a classic sense of luxury, but now travelers can also stay nearby in the Philippe Starck-designed SLS Beverly Hills, or branch out to the city’s more happening neighborhoods. In Koreatown, Roy Choi’s The Line draws crowds as much for the food as for the rooms; downtown Los Angeles (DTLA) accommodates its growing fan base with The Standard and The Ace; and West Hollywood, known in the past for its riotous party scene, has grown up a bit with the sleek and contemporary Andaz West Hollywood.
