Hidden on seven leafy acres in Bel Air, the Luxe feels like a tranquil country retreat. Earth tones and neutral colors dominate the interior design by Mary McDonald and make for a calm and relaxing setting. The beige-on-beige scheme can seem a little vanilla, but it’s a welcome reprieve from L.A. properties that try too hard to be colorfully hip.
Bed and Bath
The 161 guestrooms come with feather duvets, stacks of decorative pillows, flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations. The feel is modern and serene, with white lacquer parsons desks, wicker benches and oversize seashell images. About a third of the rooms have balconies — be sure to request one when booking. Marble bathrooms in standard rooms have tub-shower combos and plush towels.
Ideal for active Angelenos and visitors, the Luxe offers an outdoor heated pool, a tennis court and a fitness center. Afterward reward yourself with seasonal Cali cuisine at On Sunset or blood orange martinis and truffle fries at the Luxe Lounge. Or book a treatment at the Asian-themed spa. The hotel provides a 24-hour shuttle between the property’s various levels.
How to Get There
I traveled to LA on business with two colleagues. We spent two nights at the Luxe Hotel and had a fantastic time. The staff was very friendly, professional, kind, thoughtful, helpful - they could not have been any nicer to us. We loved the quiet, tranquil feel of the hotel. There were beautiful orchids everywhere and it felt very relaxing and welcoming. The restaurant served a very good breakfast too.
The location for our needs was perfect. it is right at the base of the Getty Museum, close to Brentwood, Westwood and Bel Air. I am so glad to find this gem and will stay here every time I come to LA.
This was my first stay at the property, however, my daughter has spent several days at the Luxe over the past 6 months. I have interacted with staff over this time and found each to be genuine ambassadors of customer service and integrity.
If you book a 4 people room you can’t bring 4 people, so booking policy is a total rip off. So if you travel with friends, this hotel is a no go. Room was ok, clean bathroom, close to white beach where you have bars and restaurants.
We got upgraded to a room with bunkbeds which my son loved. Clean modern rooms and a nice heated pool. Ask to be in the upper part of the hotel by the pool much quieter given that the hotel is just off the 405 Freeway. Food was yummy. There was a convention there so it was a bit crowded but staff was still friendly. They give you a shuttle ride down to the restaurant and lobby from the upper part of the building. Close to the Getty Center and not too far from the Natural History Museum.
Perfect location and staff are very friendly and helpful. Thw rooms are very spacious and clean.The only downside is the noise from the busy main road. If you’re visiting with kids and need a good rest you’d need to make sure you request a room not too close to the main road.
