Take a look at the best kid-friendly hotels in West Hollywood.
Ideal for business travelers because of its West Hollywood location, the Élan Hotel is a boutique, mid-range property with 49 rooms and a courteous, helpful staff. It’s within walking distance of many shopping and dining options, including the Beverly Center, but has few on-site amenities. Rooms are small and don’t have impressive views, but they are comfortable and comparable to other similar style properties.
This Best Western right on West Hollywood's Sunset Strip may not have the pedigree or the frills of its fancy neighbors (the Mondrian, Andaz, and Sunset Tower Hotel), but it's still a notch above a typical mid-range chain. Prices reflect this, as upscale hotels in the area are often not that much more expensive. The outdoor pool in a flowering courtyard, the big rooms with microwaves and mini-fridges, and the charming Mediterranean decor are all draws. There are plenty of music clubs nearby, and the designer boutiques at Sunset Plaza are a 10-minute walk away.
The generic all-suite sister property of Le Montrose, Le Parc is a mile south of Sunset Boulevard in a quiet residential West Hollywood neighborhood, a car ride away from most Los Angeles attractions. Its heated rooftop pool and tennis court -- and large rooms with kitchens -- are family-friendly assets, while the on-site restaurant could be better.
The all-suite Montrose West Hollywood is steps from Sunset Boulevard, but still feels like a tranquil retreat. The 133 smartly decorated and well-stocked suites have gas fireplaces, Keurig coffeemakers, 42-inch flat-screen TVs, and Art Deco-inspired style, plus many units have kitchens and balconies. The hotel's rooftop tennis court and saltwater pool are the most notable amenities, though other perks include a decent fitness center and sauna. The Montrose's restaurant serves all meals daily and offers room service and a California-centric wine list. The nearby The Standard, Hollywood has an even livelier scene, though its entry-level rooms are much smaller and none have kitchens.
Located right on L.A.'s famous Sunset Strip, this upscale hotel has a rock-and-roll edge and includes popular local destinations like Oliver's Prime Steakhouse and glam Bar 20. The 108 contemporary rooms are modern and bright, with a rocker sensibility plus flat-screen TVs, and the hotel has a 24-hour fitness center. The clientele is mostly couples, though a good number of families are drawn to the saltwater pool, one of the largest in the area. It could be worth comparing rates with the nearby Le Montrose Suite Hotel, which has a rooftop saltwater pool plus a tennis court.
