From the Hollywood Hills to the vibrant downtown area, a tour of five beautiful hotels that have just opened in Los Angeles.
Freshly opened in Los Angeles, these five hotels have as many rooftops with a devastating view. Guided tour.
Third Californian address of the famous London group, the Soho Warehouse has just opened its doors in the middle of Santa Fe Avenue in Los Angeles. Located in a building dating back to the 1920s, the hotel is decorated in Art Deco style with a few Seventies touches distilled through its 48 rooms, its large gym and its café which opens onto a small inner courtyard. The star of the place, the rooftop is at the heart of all the attention with its deckchairs, imagined by Mooncloth and the artist Ethan Lipsitz, where to bask in the sun and its azure swimming pool from which to admire the skyscrapers of L.A.
West Hollywood EDITION
On Sunset Boulevard, Ian Schrager, founder of Studio 54, has just inaugurated the West Hollywood EDITION, which replaces the old Scandia, Frank Sinatra‘s favourite restaurant of the 1960s. This new hotel has the look of a green oasis with its green façade and hidden gardens full of tropical plants and flowers. Not to be outdone, its rooftop, topped by a swimming pool, allows you to gauge the excessiveness of this titanic city, between skyscrapers and the ocean dancing in the distance, while sipping a kombucha cocktail.
1 Hotel West Hollywood
After Brooklyn and South Beach in Miami, the eco-responsible hotel group 1 Hotel is packing its bags in Los Angeles. In the West Hollywood neighborhood, the place, like its elders, has been entirely designed using natural materials and limits waste as much as possible. The lobby is made of local white pine, the carpets were made from recycled plastic found in the ocean, the paper in the rooms has been replaced by slates, the keys are made of recycled wood… While the rooftop is populated with climbing vines and has a swimming pool surrounded by white deckchairs.
Surrounded by art galleries, concept stores and beautiful tables, the new Hoxton Hotel was designed by the Ennismore Studio in collaboration with Soho House. Inspired by the creative aura of this former Californian theatre, the tandem creates a cleverly outmoded décor with rooms lined with House of Hackney fabrics, cane headboards and velvet armchairs. And on the roof, the swimming pool allows you to escape from the torpor of the city and the Pilot restaurant, to taste an anthology of recipes inspired by Mediterranean cuisine.
Silver Lake Pool & Inn
East of the city, Silver Lake Pool & Inn is the latest project of Palisociety, an independent hotel group already based in San Francisco and Miami. Revamping an old 80’s motel into a dashing place to live, the Electric Bowery studio was inspired as much by Californian as Mexican aesthetics. Perched at its summit, the rooftop, all dressed in white, is a real haven of peace with its giant cacti and its lagoon-coloured swimming pool.
How do I get to Los Angeles?
The Private Suite
Anyone who’s ever set foot in Los Angeles has already measured the extent of LAX. Sprawling airport where thousands of passengers pass through every day with all the hazards, stress and patience that this requires. The Private Suite is a new service that allows you to get around your difficulties in two or three moves. As soon as they get off the plane, a comfortable car waits for them on the tarmac before transporting them to a private terminal with its own customs agent and security, away from the crowds and paparazzi. While on the outbound flight, travelers are provided with a private suite where they can take a nap, watch a movie, have lunch or dinner before returning to the plane under the same conditions. Enough to make the trip luxurious.
