About Los Angeles
More than Hollywood starlets, bronzed skin and bikini-clad bodies, Los Angeles is a hub for everything creative and inspiring. From the music and movies to the clothes and food, L.A. has an energy and promise it's impossible to duplicate. This is a great place for dreamers and go-getters. Different areas of the city are like separate villages with their own distinctive personalities and our selection of the best places to stay in Los Angeles reflects this.
Head out to Venice Beach and sunbathe under the electric blue sky, beside a bikini-wearing 60 year old with skin like a handbag. Cruise up and down the beach a few times, then dodge bodies up to the boardwalk where you might catch the next big thing in music, magic or street performance - all for free!
Yes, in L.A. the inexpensive sits comfortably beside the expensive. Little old delis and hot dog vans beside super clubs and Michelin starred restaurants. Markets beside big brand boutiques. Museums beside cinemas - but then this IS L.A..
Here you'll find plenty of sunshine, plenty of preening, but also plenty of fun. Some of L.A. takes itself too seriously, but that's one of the reasons why it's so much fun for the rest of us!
Taken one at a time, the bits of this metropolitan jigsaw seem friendlier, more appealing to explore and easier to get to know and it is worth putting almost as much thought into where you want to be based as which hotel you want to stay in.
Top choices for the best places to stay in Los Angeles are the newly revamped Hollywood with its film studios and Walk of Fame, Beverly Hills with its shops and the Santa Monica and Malibu beach areas. Wherever you decide to stay, there is easy access to other areas and no shortage of things to do. From celebrity spotting, visiting Universal Studios, the huge Griffith Park or the Getty Center, checking out the vibrant nightlife or just watching the spectacular Pacific sunsets.
What not to miss:
- Hit Venice beach for a day under the sun amongst the hip crowds.
- Visit the Griffith Observatory and enjoy the far stretching views across the city.
- Stroll along Rodeo Drive and ogle at the high end stores.
- Stop by the iconic Santa Monica Pier and Beach and take one of the fair rides.
- Be sure to spend a day in Universal Studios Hollywood.
Such a fantastic city with something for everyone means that many of the best places to stay in Los Angeles are quickly snapped up, so to be sure of your booking make plans and book soon.
- For a proper Hollywood experience one of the best places to stay in Los Angeles is the Hollywood Roosevelt. This hotel hosted the first Academy Awards ceremony in 1929, and was a favourite of big name stars like Marilyn Monroe and Clark Gable. Plenty of the original 'Spanish Colonial' style remains but with a modern take added during the hotel's complete restoration in 2005.
- The Mondrian is another re-vamped Hollywood classic, close to Fox Studios, Paramount Pictures, Rodeo Drive and the Getty Museum. The vibe is Californian low-key.
For the movies - West Hollywood
- Gorgeous Art Deco icon, Sunset Tower, was once the Hollywood address. Errol Flynn, John Wayne and Marilyn Monroe were all residents during its glorious heyday as an apartment building. A careful restoration has retained all the charming details and has added all the 21st Century essentials, including a spa and restaurant.

For the museums - Central L.A.
- For something fun and inexpensive in a super central location, try the Farmer’s Daughter, a 'farm' themed hotel with crowing alarm clocks, denim duvets and inflatable farm animals in the pool.
For shopping - Beverly Hills!
- The Avalon's name might not be familiar, but as the Beverly Carlton this boutique hotel has been an L.A. institution since the 1950s. They've kept the 50s, patio chic style - this is one of the best places to stay in Los Angeles if you're looking for a taste of vintage glamour or Mad Men chic. Expect excellent food, a long cocktail list and furniture by George Nelson and Charles Eames.
- If you're looking for sleek and smart, with the kind of roof terrace made famous by music videos, book the Thompson, Beverly Hills. Only a few blocks from Rodeo Drive, you're right in amongst the action, and you can see it all happening from, and on, the roof terrace each evening.
- Check into the Montage Beverly Hills if you're looking for real Rodeo Drive opulence. Just back from 'the drive', this hotel has its own boutiques and a 20,000 square foot spa.
