This mid-sized upscale hotel is the definition of five-pearl. Classy yet understated, the property draws a chic celebrity clientele, and guests will also feel like celebs staying here. Tucked into a quiet residential neighborhood just blocks from exclusive Rodeo and Robertson Drives, the hotel has 285 beautifully decorated rooms -- each with French doors and private balconies, plus iPads and ultra-cushy beds. There is a marked focus on doing things al fresco, thanks to the property's open-air restaurant/lounge and 24-hour fitness center, and fabulous outdoor heated pool with cafe and private cabanas. The on-site restaurant and bar are also popular with the glitterati, yet the overall vibe of this hotel is somehow still serene. In-room Wi-Fi is only available for a fee.
