Hot Hotels in Hollywood, California
You’re heading to Hollywood, California! But where will you stay? That depends on what you like because Hollywood has something for every taste! Here’s a sampling of some great Hollywood hotels and some tidbits on what makes them stand out.
Because It’s Fancy
The London – Get ready to feel like a celebrity because at The London West Hollywood, the staff does whatever it takes to make you feel like a VIP. You’ll also be pleased with the spacious rooms, stunning views, and a gorgeous rooftop pool with private cabanas and a roomy sundeck. Yes, it’s pricey, but we did tell you, it’s fancy! Be sure to say “hello” to Winston and Churchill, two adorable bulldogs who are the hotel’s official mascots. Bring your own pooch and treat him to a meal fit for a real Prime Minister. That’s right, they have “Winston’s Menu” especially for four-legged guests.
Because It’s Funky
Mama Shelter Los Angeles – Well, hello Mama! Located a couple of blocks off of the busy streets, this hotel’s unique touches make it a kick! We’re talking Star Wars helmets for bedside lamps, body wash tubes labeled “Mama Loves You from Head to Toe”, movie scripts for reading material, and much more. The bright colors and lively décor of the hotel will bring a smile to your face, and the rooftop bar has a fun, upbeat vibe, plus nearly 360 degree views of Tinseltown.
Because It’s Boutique
Palihouse – With only 37 rooms, the Palihouse is a small urban lodge with all the amenities of its much larger neighboring hotels. Choose between studios, one- and two-bedroom guest suites, or loft-style residences featuring fully equipped kitchens. The hotel also has Mardi Restaurant, where guests dine al fresco in a spirited atmosphere. Several private gathering spots can be reserved, including the rooftop lounge.
Because It’s Hip
The Everly – A modern, beautiful venue with amazing service, The Everly by Kimpton features a rooftop pool and lounge area, in-room yoga mats, complimentary bikes for use by guests, a casually cool coffee bar/restaurant, and a chic bar with an eclectic selection of cocktails. You’ll love the views of the Hollywood hills and the welcoming staff, all within a couple of blocks from the main streets.
Because It’s Legendary
The Chateau Marmont – Originally built for celebrities, some of the most famous people from years past have laid their heads at this hotel. John Lennon, Clark Gable, Boris Karloff, Jim Morrison and Howard Hughes have been among the guests here, and the hotel is legendary for protecting the privacy of those who stay. In fact, nobody can even enter without being a guest. The Chateau Marmont is also legendary for another, less glamorous reason. It’s the site where comedian John Belushi died. Nightly rates are pricey, but the experience is definitely unique.
Because It’s Haunted
Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel – Many would claim that this star-studded hotel is haunted by the most glamorous ghost in town – that of Marilyn Monroe. The blonde bombshell lived in room 1200 during her rise to fame. But she’s not the only spirit who’s made its presence known at the Spanish Colonial Revival-style hotel. Silver-screen actor Montgomery Clift and 1930’s comedic actress Carole Lombard have also been spotted floating around the upper floors. For those looking to explore Hollywood, this hotel is on prime real estate, located just up the street from Hollywood Wax Museum on Hollywood Boulevard.
All these fabulous hotels are just a skip away from our Hollywood attractions, so make your way over for a visit while you’re in town. Enjoy your stay in our dynamic city!
