Where To Stay In Los Angeles

On our most recent stay in Los Angeles, we ventured out of our West Hollywood comfort zone and decided to opt for a change of scenery at the W Los Angeles – West Beverly Hills. Immediately upon arriving we felt an unfamiliar calmness wash over us. The hotel is tucked away next to UCLA in what feels like a much more residential area than we’re used to – and was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan (not to mention the center of West Hollywood). A few notable new potatoes that we found during our stay….

Bliss Spa:

We basically consider this spa ‘old faithful.’ You can stop in for a quick wax or mani-pedi (which we did) or you can get a massage, put your feet up, relax and unwind (which, surprisingly, we also did). It’s no-fuss and an easy and reliable place to get whatever you need done.

The Backyard:

The back of the hotel is lined with greenery and lush gardens, and the pool feels quiet and remote – like your own little private country club. You would never guess you were in the middle of a major city; it’s the perfect place to set up your own little outdoor office, or relax by the pool. The Backyard Burger (cheddar, aioli and fried pickles on a pretzel bun) was also top notch.

The Spectacular Suite:

This reasonably priced suite is such a treat for the price. It’s spacious, modern, and perfect for a work trip (Can you say room service?), with a nicely sized living and work area, separate bedroom, and luxe bathroom. We’re hooked.
