“In Los An­ge­les, you can have the city life and feel like you are on hol­i­day at the same time” – Is­abel Marant

This fashionably chic ho­tel sits in the heart of Hol­ly­wood near fa­mous land­marks like the Chi­nese theatre and Hol­ly­wood Walk of Fame as well as shop­ping ar­cades, din­ing and en­ter­tain­ment spots. Re­splen­dent with Hol­ly­wood his­tory, The Hol­ly­wood Roo­sevelt hosted the first-ever Academy Awards al­most a cen­tury ago and Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe also slept in a suite here back in the day. Its in­te­ri­ors are fur­nished with leather so­fas, wrought-iron chan­de­liers and colour­ful tiled foun­tains. But for us the best van­tage point is on the rooftop – where its pool boasts an un­der­wa­ter mu­ral by David Hock­ney that has taken cen­tre stage in many fash­ion shoots over the years. Some of the rooms have views of the Hol­ly­wood sign and have been fab­u­lously ren­o­vated with hard­wood floors, grey rugs, walk-in show­ers and four poster beds. The walls of the room are sound­proof to ward off LA’s street life. It’s the per­fect base to take refuge in if you’ve been hit­ting the streets all day long. You might find a celebrity par­tak­ing in some rest and re­cu­per­a­tion too.
