2. The Standard Downtown LA
You have almost definitely seen The Standard Downtown LA on your favorite TV show or some Hollywood movie. The view from the rooftop pool and bar is one of the best in LA, as you look over the surrounding skyscrapers of downtown.
The Standard is in the one of the few areas in Los Angeles that feels really urban. If you’re looking for a less posh experience, but want to explore an interesting neighborhood that’s on the rise, check out this hotel. Downtown was sketchy at some point, and some parts still are, but it’s been thriving over the last few years. New restaurants, cafes, and hot bars are opening up all over the place, and The Standard’s urban, but modern and cool setting blends right in.
3. Orlando Hotel
Though the Orlando Hotel is right next to the main intersection of 3rd Street and La Cienega Boulevard, you might almost miss it as you pass by. It’s simple, clean design and small size shield its guests from the busy streets right outside the hotel.
Book a stay at the Orlando Hotel if you want a cozy place that makes you feel at home, but still want easy access to shopping (Beverly Center), and the restaurants and bars all along 3rd Street. This family owned place is one of the best Los Angeles hotels to relax in at the end of a day of sightseeing.
4. The Redbury Hollywood
You can’t miss the bright red Redbury Hotel, right on the major intersection of Hollywood and Vine. If you want easy access to LA nightlife, but would rather you have no huge clubs or bars in your hotel, this is the hotel for you. You have easy access to the nightclubs on Hollywood Boulevard, but still get to stay in an old-fashioned boutique hotel decorated in a very old-Hollywood glamour style. However, if you have an early sleeping schedule or hate noise and nightlife, maybe check out some other place.
