Great Hotels for Business and Pleasure in Los Angeles

Los Angeles, California

I wouldn’t know where to begin to explain why visiting Los Angeles is a great idea. It’s perfect for those enthralled with Hollywood stars and history, as you can try to spot your favorites or tour places where celebrities died. If you’re a lover of the arts, this is the place to go for the best in visual arts, music, and any other form or artistic expression you might like. Fantasy and paranormal lovers like me might want to see the city where the action flicks “Queen of the Damned” or “Angel” took place. In addition, there are the beaches, the food, the culture, and the many Los Angeles hotels to consider.

There is no wrong time to travel to Los Angeles, but if you’re looking for the best deals, then the late autumn and winter months are ideal, aside from Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Regardless of when you travel, here’s a list of hotels you should check out when staying in Los Angeles.

Affordable Stay in an Ideal Location

An affordable hotel that’s clean, comfortable, and right next to the Hollywood Walk of Fame? The Dixie Hollywood is all of that. The 70 pet-friendly rooms with free Wi-Fi and free parking will make you feel divine, all for a budget-friendly price. This is also a great place for photo shoots or for setting up a film scene. Dolby Theatre, Griffith Park, and Universal Studios are also nearby.

Californian Comfort Meets Asian-Style Lodging

Located close to City Hall, the Miyako Hotel Los Angeles is best suited for business travelers. However, if Asian-style decor and a focus on comfort is what you’re looking for, this hotel will thrill you. Rooms are furnished to help you stay active and come with free Wi-Fi. There’s also a self-service business center, and the Japanese American National Museum and Little Tokyo are practically next door.

Hipster Vibe in Downtown LA

A luxury stay at The Standard Downtown LA means a chance to explore its famous rooftop bar with its panoramic view of Los Angeles, a dance floor with a DJ lighting up the place every night, a heated pool, and endless fun. The fitness center is open 24/7, and the massive rooms have huge windows to make sure you soak up all that Californian sun. This ultramodern hipster stay is quite the LA experience.

Stylish, Affordable Stay Downtown

A hotel-hostel hybrid, Stay on Main is an inexpensive option in downtown Los Angeles. You can opt for private rooms with private bathrooms, or you can book a bunk bed for the full hostel experience. Regardless of room choice, you can enjoy the free Wi-Fi and breakfast, cable TV, free toiletries, and many other on-demand amenities. Airport shuttle service is also available.

Boutique Hotel Near Beverly Hills

If you’d prefer a boutique hotel near Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, try Hotel Wilshire, a Kimpton Hotel. With a strong focus on personal service, the Wilshire offers pet-friendly rooms, studios, and suites that include animal print robes and minibars with organic and gourmet snacks and drinks. It’s surrounded by bars, clubs, restaurants, shopping malls, and museums.

  1. Useful roundup. I was curious why you said the rooms were furnished to help you stay active? Does that mean there is nnot much in there

    LA is one of my favorite cities in the world. I’ll keep these suggestions in mind the next time I’m planning to visit. 🙂

    It’s interesting to read about hotels in my own city. Living in Los Angeles I never get to stay in a hotel here, but I was always curious how they may be.

    • I did the weekend at a hotel in town once with my boyfriend, actually 😀 And it was super fun! We had no time for a longer vacay, and that was just so nice! Dinner out, a walk at night, really felt like we were away 😀

  4. Bryanna says:

    What a great list of places to stay! For someone unfamiliar with the area it was very helpful to read about the different styles of hotel and what was available. I think it would be cool to try all of them!

    Although we rarely spend much time in our accommodation on city stays I spend quite a bit of time working out which has the best location and facilities for what I want. Surprising here to see how wide spread pet-friendly hotels are, it’s not something I’ve really come across before.

    • Yeah, I think things are changing and hotels are changing their policies 😀 As I have a dog and sometimes travel with him, I do keep an eye on the Pet Friendly text on all hotel descriptions 😀

    I stayed at my friend´s house when I was in LA and visited Hollywood just for a day. Seemed I missed out on a bit (not luxury stay for me anywhere, haha)

  7. Cristina says:

    This is super useful. I would like, hopefully in the near future, to visit USA and would definitely not miss LA. It looks picture perfect :).

  8. Some good choices in great locations. If I visit LA I would probably give The Standard Downtown LA a try. Most important thing for us when choosing a hotel are the things we can do close to the hotel.

  9. Monika says:

    Good piece of advice for someone looking for accommodation 🙂
    I have a problem with big cities though, I like small hotels and guesthouses and there are difficult to find in big cities.

  10. Great info on accommodation. Havent been to LA yet but will get there eventually. Great tips 🙂
