Emily Mortimer once described Los Angeles as “a beauty parlor at the end of the universe.” It’s true. There’s always a bright new hue to try on and something fabulous to adorn in the City of Angels. You’ll soon be exploring the lantern-lined streets of Chinatown, pressing your hands into celebrity prints in Hollywood, and sparkling like a starlet on the sand at Manhattan Beach. The year-round sunny days saturate afternoon colors at The Getty and warm nights make it easy to get out and wish on shooting stars from Griffith Observatory. If you’re wondering where to stay in Los Angeles to best see the many sides of the city, read on…
If you think of Los Angeles as Tinseltown, if you picture the City of Angels crowned in beautiful halos, there’s only one way for you to stay in SoCal: in the lap of luxury. Savor some of the most coveted dishes on the West Coast, fill your evenings with world-class performing arts, and lounge on a golden beach—yes, they glitter around here. Cultures come together in this sprawling city, much like the fusion of garlic, ginger, and chilies fill the streets of Koreatown with the aroma of mouthwatering barbecue sauce. Experience this embarrassment of riches and top off a fabulous trip with one of our 5-star hotels in Los Angeles. It’s only fitting.
When the bright lights of marquis and paparazzi flash bulbs catch your eye, it’s time to head for the hills. From the theaters and cinematic museums peppering Hollywood Boulevard to the gardens and design houses in nearby Beverly Hills, the choice is clear. Stay in one of these central neighborhoods or swanky suburbs for access to arts, culture, fine dining, and breathtaking beach vistas. You’ll be a short drive to the mesmerizing Griffith Observatory, eclectic Echo Park, and the sizzling Sunset Strip.
Los Angeles may be a city unto itself—that’s why you can’t get enough of it—but it also boasts some beautiful neighbors that add their own cachet to the LA Metro Area. When you’re perusing 5-star hotels near Los Angeles, consider these sumptuous guest favorites:
Known as the Entertainment Capital of the World, LA is always at the forefront of contemporary arts. Maybe there’s something in the cool Pacific waves or the endless sunshine, but one thing’s for certain: LA is swimming in creativity and culture. Garnish your getaway with these highlights:
There is beauty beyond the galleries at the Getty and wondrous waterfront vistas, and you’ll find it on the plates of LA restaurants, bistros, and even food trucks.
To dine on the finer side of life, reservations in Beverly Hills are in order. The city is small and has an almost vintage aesthetic, but when it comes to food, The Hills are cutting edge. Dine at the iconic Spago of Beverly Hills to sample Wolfgang Puck’s culinary genius on an enchanting patio.
For quirky bistros and vegetarian-friendly fare, you can’t go wrong in La La Land. In Echo Park, Sage Vegan Bistro proves you don’t need meat to eat like royalty. Located on bustling Sunset Boulevard, Sage is a wise choice for conscientious diners. Plus, they have a food truck, so follow the scent of eggplant arrabiata around town.
