Our favourite rooms
Our favourites are the Premier Suites, particularly room 1207 – the private terrace has views of Downtown and the Hollywood Hills, and the oversized tub might make you never want to venture beyond the curved walls of your suite.
Soak up the SoCal sunshine in the hotel’s outdoor pool. If you would prefer a small respite from the sun, make your way to a table and sip your cucumber mojito in the shade.
Oversized sunglasses, your wrap-party best, and something that says ‘I woke up like this’ for Sunday brunch.
The hotel’s thoroughly wheelchair accessible, with specially adapted guest rooms and a lift.
All welcome, but not catered to. This isn’t particularly a family stay.
