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
We had the pleasure of staying at the Luxe while in LA for a wedding. The Lobby is lovely with morning coffee and afternoon snacks. The room was spacious with a super comfortable bed, linens and pillows. Staff are a pleasure and the entire experience was positive.
Stayed while attending an alumni event for UCLA. easy to get back and forth to the hotel. Decided to Uber for our weekend trip and the hotel provided a $20 use credit which covered our transfer back to LAX.
We stayed on a Friday and Saturday night. When we checked in a lot of people were just leaving after some sort of event and the lobby was quite crowded. After that it was very pleasant.
One meal at the restaurant which was well prepared.
Our room was on the 2nd floor near the elevator. Not noisy. We used the adjacent stairs most of the time. I was confused when looking for a room info book about room service etc. The morning I left we discovered that the info was all on a small electronic tablet at the bedside which we had ignored. The night before I had to go to the bar to get my wife a Diet Coke. Their in room refrigerator had only regular cokes no diet. No coke machines. Not a big deal.
Staff was very friendly. Beautiful lobby and entrance. Valet driver was friendly and was able to make some suggestions for our trip. We are definitely planning on staying at the Luxe again the next time!
