Andaz, West Hollywood

Hollywood has always been the playground of some of the world’s most famous and colourful characters including many a rockstar.

Replete with rock ‘n’ roll history – Little Richard lived in room 319 for decades – the Andaz was nicknamed the Riot House thanks to the antics of the rock stars and musicians who stayed here in the 70s.

Think wild parties, The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards throwing a TV out of his window and Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham riding a motorcycle down the hallways.

These days, the hotel is much more modern and peaceful than its Almost Famous-style past (a blissful night of beauty sleep awaits!). Its spacious rooms overlook either the Sunset Boulevard or the Hollywood Hills, making it the perfect spot for your home base during a holiday to LA.

The Andaz has also recently renovated its rooftop pool, so if you’re looking to cool down and sip cocktails with some of the best views of the Hills, this is the place to be.

Mondrian Los Angeles

If “Instagram-worthy” is high on the agenda when it comes to picking your hotels, the Mondrian has this box completely ticked.

Another hotel located on the Sunset Strip – directly across the road from the Andaz, in fact – the Mondrian contains some of the most aesthetically pleasing facilities to act as the backdrop to your perfectly curated West Hollywood photo dumps.

The sizable rooms boast a luxe vibe with futuristic decor but the real pièce de résistance of the venue is its famous Sky Bar. This watering hole features some of the most stunnning views of any bar in the area. And those window seats? They’re just begging you to strike a pose with a cocktail in hand for the ‘gram.
