Los Angeles boasts an impressive roster of hotels, both legendary and brand-new, which often makes it hard to find one that ticks all the boxes when it comes to location, experience and quality. Well, if you’re looking for somewhere that’s just a five-minute drive from the magic of Hollywood and a stone’s throw from the Pacific Coast’s sun-baked beaches, we’ve found just the place.
