Closer to down­town is the months- old 7 Hol­i­day House and its 21-and- over crowd, and if there’s a pret­tier spot in the val­ley than this chill blue-and-white-hued oa­sis, we haven’t seen it. The build­ing orig­i­nally opened in 1951 as the Chase Ho­tel, but its “ex­clu­sive se­lect clien­tele” lus­tre faded con­sid­er­ably in the fol­low­ing decades. It’s been re­vamped by Los An­ge­les de­signer Mark Sikes in his sig­na­ture cool pal­ette, which blends the gen­er­ous foot­print of the old rooms with reimag­ined kitch­enettes and bed­rooms kit­ted out in orig­i­nal art (Baldessari, Basquiat, Alex Katz), wicker and modern tex­tiles—all with a so­phis­ti­ca­tion that be­lies its rather rea­son­able rack rate. hol­i­day­houseps.com
