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.
