Did you ever think you’d have anything in common with Marylin Monroe, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, or dozens of other celebrities you love (and might love to hate)?
If you’re in Los Angeles anytime soon, it could be your chance to share a piece of your celebrity crush’s history, by possibly sleeping in the same bed they once crashed in.
There’s few better places than West Hollywood to hang up your flip-flops to explore all that the City of Angels has to offer, or to cruise around praying for your first celebrity sighting.
West Hollywood is a short drive (or walk, depending on where you are and where you go) to the city’s most famed shopping spots including Beverly Hills and La Cienega.
Driving west will get you to Santa Monica and beaches, driving east will take you to bohemian Silverlake and super-trendy Downtown, and driving north gets you to the Valley where no matter what anyone says, you should go to for the endless selection of amazing restaurants and bars.
That being said, you could also never leave Weho.
What’s considered one of the gay meccas of Los Angeles is overflowing with the trendiest in fashion retail, culinary offerings, gay bars and of course cutting-edge hotels.
Whether you’re looking to splash on an upscale party pad right on Sunset Boulevard, or opting for a quieter boutique experience tucked away in some lush palm trees, we suggest 8 hotels for sleeping around in West Hollywood in style. Paparazzi welcome.
‘Not a boutique hotel and not a luxury residence, Palihouse offers the best of both.’
Immaculately designed, Palihouse offers ‘residences’ from studios to two bedrooms for extended stays or turning your Weho trip into a home away from home.
To make your stay all the more comfortable, additional amenities include same-day dry cleaning service and pool access to nearby hotels.
With 36 guest suites and loft-style apartments, the Palihouse offers the ultimate in pampering and service while maintaining a sense of casual cool.
Effortlessly cool and so much more than a place to rest your head, the Petit Ermitage interprets bohemian aesthetics in a luxurious fashion.
Suites include queen beds, Venetian plaster and original artwork, many with their own private balconies.
One of the best views you can find at the base of the Hollywood Hills and overlooking the vast area of Los Angeles, the Petit Ermitage comes with a private roof deck where the bottle service cabanas are highly recommended.
At sundown on Mondays, you can catch an international or silent film in the Fire Deck, named for its cozy environment and roaring fireplace.
Any day of the week, be sure to check out the hotel’s garden which doubles as a registered butterfly and hummingbird sanctuary.
Built in 1924 and re-done with a million dollar renovation in 2002, the Charlie is the quintessential California home-cum-hotel, with beautiful green foliage as a backdrop and a rich Hollywood history.
Once the home of Marylin Monroe in the 1940s, the Charlie is comprised of freestanding cottages and bungalows equipped with all the necessities and all the privacy needed to forget the busy streets of LA.
