With a reputation as one of the busiest hotspots in the Los Angeles area for restaurants and nightlife, West Hollywood has become a great destination in the City of Angels.
The best way to enjoy a stay in this vibrant neighborhood is at one of the many elegant and upscale boutique hotels that cater to guests’ every need and offer the ideal glamorous ambiance for an LA vacation.
London West Hollywood
London West Hollywood is as famous for being home to Gordon Ramsay’s top-rated restaurant as it is for its hotel. The rooftop has a great bar, café, and pool area with a beautiful view of the city enhanced by palm trees and LA sunsets. The rooms are simple and elegant, and the upgraded suites are known as some of the best rooms in the city. In addition, you will be just steps away from the famous Sunset Strip as well as the VIPs in Beverly Hills and on Rodeo Drive.
Mondrian Los Angeles
The Mondrian Los Angeles is another hotspot on the Sunset Strip for locals and visitors alike, as guests come to stay for the luxurious rooms and professional service, while locals flood the modern, elegant SkyBar for drinks and pool parties with an incredible city view. The rooms offer a range of amenities to make you feel at home, including a big working desk, a relaxing oversize sofa, and a flat screen TV. For those who come to LA to dive into the music and Hollywood scene, you are just a few steps away from famous venues like the House of Blues, the Viper Room, Chateau Marmont and others.
The Grafton on Sunset
The contemporary West Coast vibe of The Grafton on Sunset attracts visitors looking to soak in the young and hip atmosphere of West Hollywood. In addition to its beautiful standard rooms, the Grafton offers four types of suites with accents like wet bars and leather couches so guests can relax and have a good time on their LA getaway. Guests can also head down to the hotel’s saltwater pool (the largest one on the Strip), enjoy a delicious meal at Oliver’s Prime Steakhouse, or grab a drink at Bar 20. When night arrives, take in a show at the nearby famous Comedy Store or head to the Saddle Ranch for drinks and food in a Western atmosphere.
Tucked away right off the bustling Sunset Strip, the Sunset Marquis is a slightly more quiet, hidden boutique hotel that nevertheless puts you close to all the action. Many celebrities frequent this spot because of its reputation for privacy, as well as its classy ambiance and tranquil environment.

Wilshire Orange Hotel
For travelers who want to experience West Hollywood on a budget, book a room at the Wilshire Orange Hotel. The hotel is small, cozy and designed mostly for extended stays, so the rooms look more like well-appointed apartments than hotel suites. Many rooms include accents like fireplaces and hardwood floors. Though there are not a lot of on-site amenities, Wilshire Orange is very close to the Grove as well as the Beverly Center, which boast plenty of shopping and dining options.
