Hotel Angeleno is situated right off the 405, making it convenient and centrally located to UCLA, Santa Monica, and Beverly Hills. The circular architectural lay-out is super unique and gives you beautiful panoramic views of Los Angeles. That being said, I definitely recommend staying on one of the top floors! Even though it’s right by the highway, we didn’t find noise to be an issue. The hotel has a pool area, fitness center, complimentary wine hour, and restaurant! I have to say that the best part was the roof top restaurant, West, on the 17th floor. It’s a penthouse restaurant and bar that features locally sourced ingredients alongside a stunning view of the city and coast. The food was decent, but I still can’t get over the lovely design and breathtaking panoramic view, especially at sunset. What I loved about our experience at Hotel Angeleno was the service culture provided to make everyone’s stay as convenient and painless as possible. Their motto is “We are not Square”, meaning they are a gratuity free hotel. Yep, that means from bartenders and waiters to valet, you “skip the tip”. Why? Because they take pride in how they compensate their employees. They also have free valet parking, which is generally unheard of in LA. Although this isn’t a top of the line luxury resort, it was a comfortable, convenient, and a wonderful place to stay for our weekend trip!
