This superb hotel and LA landmark was central to Hollywood's golden age when it opened in 1927, with guests like Charlie Chaplin, Shirley Temple and Clark Gable. It has appeared in numerous films and TV programmes, including The Fabulous Baker Boys, Internal Affairs, Beverly Hills Cop II, Catch Me If You Can and Curb Your Enthusiasm. In the heart of Hollywood, its characterful rooms look out onto the Hollywood hills and sign, and Walk of Fame. It has some outstanding bars and restaurants, and in recent years has attracted a young, partying crowd, with DJ sets from the likes of Thom Yorke of Radiohead at its iconic pool, scene of many photoshoots.



You'll love being right by the Chinese Theater and start of the Hollywood Walk of Fame; you're in the centre of all the Hollywood action.

The hotel is right on Hollywood Boulevard, and a 20-minute drive to Rodeo Drive.
By plane: flights to Los Angeles from London take 11 hours. The hotel is a 45-minute drive from LAX airport. On-site parking costs $45 per day.

Food & Drink

The food, wine, cocktails and service at the Barish Restaurant are absolutely fantastic and faultless, but it's not cheap.
