Nothing ever stays the same in the City of Angels, and the USA’s second largest city is currently in the midst of a hotel revolution, with scores of new hotels – over 30! – opening in LA in the next few years.

Los Angeles has something for everyone – you just need to know where to go! From Hollywood, to Downtown, to the beach neighbourhood of Venice Beach, you certainly won’t be running out of hotel options anytime soon…

Here’s a guide on where your clients should stay in LA depending on what they’re interested in.

Make sure you read until the end where you can find out how you can win a holiday to Los Angeles flying American Airlines worth over $5,000.


1. The foodie

The melting pot that is Los Angeles is a foodie’s paradise, with every type of cuisine practically available throughout the city. Base yourself in Koreatown – aka ‘K Town’ – for an intoxicating mix of food carts, excellent restaurants and bars, and chic cafes.

The Line Hotel, Koreatown, offers ultra-modern rooms that have been inspired by LA culture, and feature floor-to-ceiling walls with commanding views of the city, handcrafted furniture, and – of course – a Nespresso machine! To cool off, guests can take a dip in the outdoor pool, or just grab some sun at the deck – possibly with a cocktail in hand!

Dining options at the hotel are totally off the charts too, thanks to the input of the legendary LA chef, Roy Choi.

Pro tip: use the ‘Neighbourhoods of L.A Interactive’ tool to help you learn about the different areas of this dynamic city.


2. The culture vulture


Staying in the revitalised Downtown area of Los Angeles is perfect for those interested in devouring a bit of culture in the City of Angeles. Many of the hotels moving into the area are transforming historic heritage buildings into ultra-chic hotels.

For example, NoMad Los Angeles will open its doors in November 2017, transforming an historic 1923 building into a 12-story hotel embellished with chic art work and featuring a cool rooftop pool overlooking the city. The Freehand Hotel and Hostel in Downtown LA will also open in early 2017, located in what was once the 1924 Commercial Exchange Building.


3. The beach freak

The Californian coastline is the stuff of legends, and basing your clients in Venice Beach allows them to have their own Californian dream.

Hotel Erwin, in hip-and-happening Venice Beach, is smack bang in the heart of the action, located in one of Los Angeles’s most eclectic neighbourhoods. Overlooking the famous Venice Beach boardwalk, Hotel Erwin features colourful rooms, premium bedding, and an awesome rooftop bar that’s the perfect place for an evening sundowner.


4. The show-biz fanatic

Fans of the entertainment industry and wannabe stars should plonk themselves in vibrant Hollywood – the ‘Entertainment Capital of the World’ – and home of the famous Walk of Fame, the Dolby Theatre (where the Oscars are held), and the iconic TCL Chinese Theatre.

Mama Shelter, in lively Hollywood, is a cool boutique hotel just a short walk from the famous the Walk of Fame and all the action of Hollywood Boulevard. It’s also just a short distance from Universal Studios and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Fitted with minimalistic yet comfortable rooms – all tastefully designed, and each with their own iMac TV – the hotel also features a stylish bar, a casual cafe with a terrace, and two eclectic restaurants – one with gorgeous views of the city and the Hollywood sign.

Other awesome options in the area include the Dream Hollywood Hotel, a boutique hotel that offers unique-to-market dining experiences, which will open in December this year; and the Thompson Hollywood Hotel, which will soon open in 2017, boasting 220 rooms across 12 floors.


5. The splurger


Guests looking to spot stars and get amongst the glitz and glamour of Los Angeles should look no further than staying in luxurious Beverly Hills. Here, stars routinely stroll down world-famous Rodeo Drive – colonised with designer boutiques and uber-expensive shopping options – before tucking into a fine-dining restaurant for exquisite food.

Opening in spring 2017, the luxury InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown (only a short distance from ultra-chic Beverley Hills) will be the tallest tower on west coast of USA, with unparalleled views of the city from the 70th floor.
