Sometimes a two hour road trip isn't worth the mini vacation you deserve. LA has some of the finest hotels that can accommodate your much needed relaxing weekend. Find boutique, grand and very private hotels to fit the type of staycation you're looking for.
In the middle of DTLA and a great gym facility, this location makes you feel like you're in another city.
Great parties are held at the pool. I love their Tropicana and Library bar. At the Library bar, they serve cocktails with fresh ingredients and stuff you've never heard of.
With one of the most famous addresses in the city, Shutters is a gorgeous beach front hotel that knows how to class it up - from their tea to their brunch. If it's a sunny day, there's no better place to be for a special celebration.
Pricey food and drinks but the rooftop bar is phenomenal and a must-see LA experience. Summer time they have pool parties where you can soak in the sun.
Boutique hotel that may be a bit hard to get to but the exclusivity of this spot is worth the trouble of going through the 405 construction. The bar is at the top floor and very private. A perfect place to sneak away for a kiss or two over drinks.
One of my favorite hotels with a spectacular view of the west coast. Walking distance of all hip spots in Santa Monica and plenty of shopping and eating nearby. Make sure you check out the Penthouse for an amazing meal and people watching.
Old world grandeur is epitomized in the halls of the Langham in Pasadena. Take a day and relax by the pool, walk through the gardens and imagine what could have been if you were a member of the original family who once lived there.
One of the most beautiful hotels I've been in. Their service is spectacular and the restaurants and bar attached are super fun. Valet is $30 for overnight and the rooftop pool is a great place to be when the sun is out.
A hotel that sits in the middle of Hollywood where all the party is at. They have a small kitchenette that you can use to help set up any party. Party hotel for sure and even has a bar where all the hip people hang.
This location is away from the craziness of Hollywood which makes it perfect for a quiet getaway. The patrons are classy and the service is always on point.
Anthony Bourdain's home away from home. Snuck behind huge tree shrubs, you can't get any more private than this hotel. Steps away from the hottest nightlife scene, smack in the center of West Hollywood.
RIght in the center of all the happening things in DTLA. If you can catch a show at Staples, this hotel is just the perfect spot for a great weekend. Amazing rooftop pool and so many things to do nearby.
Beautiful hotel, very boutique and intimate. Great service and very clean.
