In a prime spot on the Sunset Strip, this 108-room crash pad is fresh from a top-to-toe renovation that’s ushered in a sleek new, Hollywood-glam style. The light-flooded lobby is an elegant mix of wood, granite and mirror accents, with a floor-to-ceiling mural of the cityscape and an installation-like fireplace. On the same level, clubby Bar 20 is a popular spot for happy-hour cocktails and classic small-plate bites like tacos, wings and sliders. Guestrooms start at a big-for-the-city 260 square feet, done up in a crisp white and gray palette with red splashes from the throw pillows to the bathroom vanities. Beyond the good looks, guestrooms have all the modern comforts, including 37” HDTVs, stocked minibars, complimentary WiFi and Gilchrist & Soames amenities in the simple tiled bathrooms. On the dining front, Oliver’s Prime dishes up grill favorites and seafood specialties for dinner, plus lighter bites for breakfast, lunch and poolside snacks. The hotel pool is the largest in WeHo and a welcome spot to unwind after a full day exploring the Sunset sights, and there’s a well-equipped fitness center that’s open 24/7.
In the Area
If you’re inspired by the hotel’s design, the neighborhood is home to some of the West Coast’s top interiors shops, including the Pacific Design Center. Or, if clothes are more your retail poison, zip over to designer shopping mecca Fred Segal, which has a hip café so you can refuel while flexing the plastic. Grab a picnic lunch and head out to the Getty Center, which is 20 minutes away, to walk the museum and take in the panoramic views of the city. For a taste of old-school LA, book a table at checkered-tablecloth retro Italian joint Dan Tana’s.
How to Get There
Stayed for the night, reception staff very helpful. Breakfast superb. Asked for a taxi to Hollywood boulevard for 5 people, it cost me $40. Ed on reception set me up on Uber so i didnt get stung again. My advice, use uber avoid taxi at all cost. I complained to the taxi firm but they ignored me!
Good hotel, i would recommend.
Absolutely couldn't fault it, great location too, lots of local restaurants and shopping, attractions nearby.
It was booked as a "budget" stay as we wouldn't really spend that much time there, but we were so pleased with the quality, and the facilities, it really should have cost more!
I'm an overworked stress case and the last thing I wanted to do was subject my family to a sweltering hot SoCal Indian Summer day so I went online and booked a day use hotel near my home at the Grafton on Sunset. I was immediately surprised by a warm welcome from both Ed and Ali and got us a great room for the day to use while we go hang by the pool on this hot autumn So Cal day!
Thank you guys!
