It’s never too early to book your Beverly Hills and Los Angeles hotels for the upcoming holidays. Hotels…as well as studio tours, restaurants, private sightseeing tours, museums, etc…will surely book up during late December and early January. This can be especially true depending on the two teams that will be playing The Rose Bowl Game in Pasadena on New Years Day. A few years back, we had Texas vs. Alabama, and the city was full to capacity with red and orange jerseys.
Los Angeles is huge, so how do you pick your hotel? Look at your itinerary and see what your goals are during your stay. Some guests are literally just in and out of town for a convention or conference in our Downtown L.A. area. If that’s all you have, and want to stay close to the business activities, places like The Ritz Carlton, JW Marriott LA Live, The NOMAD, The Intercontinental DTLA, and The Ace Hotel, will all be fairly close to The L.A. Convention Center.
If sightseeing is your goal, you can’t go wrong with staying in the heart of Hollywood, West Hollywood or Beverly Hills. These 3 communities are connected, so everything is in a pretty accessible radius. Look into The London West Hollywood, The Mondrian Hotel, Sunset Tower, The Jeremy and The Andaz on the world-famous Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. Also nearby, The Chamberlain, and Petit Ermitage. Hollywood Hotels include The W Hollywood Hotel, Dream Hotel, Loews Hotel, and The Kimpton Everly. Just west into Beverly Hills, lap up some luxury at The Beverly Wilshire Hotel, The Waldorf Astoria, The Viceroy L’Ermitage, The Four Seasons, The Montage, The Hotel Bel Air, The Sixty, and The SLS Hotel.
Want to chill out down at the beach in Santa Monica? Ocean Avenue is loaded with brand name and boutique hotels. If you have enough time in L.A., the perfect way to break up your stay is 3 or 4 nights in Beverly Hills/West Hollywood, and a night or two down in Santa Monica, where you can walk the boardwalk, and even stroll down to Venice Beach.
All of these hotels, and dozens more, are listed with easy links on our Glitterati Tours L.A. INFO page. You’ll also find links to hundreds of restaurants and things to do while visiting Hollywood.
Enjoy, and happy planning. We hope you get the most out of our incredible city!
