Hotels in Los Angeles

Combine Philippe Starck’s exuberant interiors with the genius for tapas of chef José Andrés and the retail vision of design curator Murray Moss, and you have a hotel unlike any other.

Venice Beach is one of the most iconic spots on the West coast, and there are few ways to experience it better than by biking or skating.

Located in West Hollywood, this extended-stay boutique hotel is a mix of 36 studio, one- and two-bedroom guest suites and loft-style residences.

A retro façade and otherworldly interior distinguish this 1925 Spanish-Moroccan-style hotel just blocks from the Staples Center.

What sets the Bel-Air apart is its sense of sanctuary; despite the property’s relatively large size (12 acres), the warm staff, the cozy Spanish Mission-style architecture, and the old-world gestures like complimentary tea service in the lobby lounge create an intimate ambience.

Minutes from Rodeo Drive, this sleek, Asian-inspired hotel is a favorite with visiting fashionistas (no less than Giorgio Armani stays here when he’s in town, and Julia Roberts makes appearances, too).

Attached to the L.A. Live sports and entertainment complex, the JW Marriott Hotel is located in the heart of downtown just minutes from the Staples Center, Los Angeles Convention Center, and Nokia Theatre.

Straddling the line between Hollywood and West Hollywood/Beverly Hills, the Farmer’s Daughter Hotel offers travelers a bit of Southern hospitality in the City of Angels. This boutique hotel combines chic style with down home comfort in its 66 rooms.

Located in the upper San Bernadino Mountains, this lodge overlooks Lake Arrowhead and is within walking distance of a number of village shops and restaurants.

Hip digs, reasonable prices, and a too-cool night scene are the draws at this André Balazs outpost.

Centrally located in downtown Avalon, and within walking distance of the beach, this upscale hotel is a mix of guest rooms and mini-suites, plus its two-bedroom Beach House. Accommodations in the VIP wing come with a water view and extras like whirlpool bathtubs and fireplaces.
