    Mr. C Beverly Hills
    Los Angeles, CA
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 869 reviewsTripAdvisor (869)
    Free WiFi

    "Fabulous," "classy" and "amazing" are just some of the words guests use to describe the Mr. C Beverly Hills, a boutique hotel located in one of L.A.'s trendiest neighborhoods. Those who stay here will find their rooms outfitted in cream and red decor, handcrafted Italian furniture, flat-screen TVs and Carrera marble bathrooms, as well as furnished balconies that provide great views of the City of Angels. However, some visitors note that even Mr. C's pillow-top mattresses and Casa Rovea linens don't ensure a good night's sleep – many guests cite late-night noise as their main qualm. Should you need a little extra refreshment, stake out a lounge chair by the pool. The Restaurant at Mr. C satisfies cravings for classic Italian fare with a menu stocked with pizza and pasta; book a table for Sunday brunch to enjoy live jazz alongside your mimosa. But be prepared to watch your bank account take a hit: Visitors say that a stay here cost them a pretty penny. Plus, the hotel charges an additional $24.95 daily resort feeBut Leaders Club members you're in luck – as part of the Leading Hotels of the World, this property grants perks like welcome gifts and complimentary upgrades.

    The Garland
    North Hollywood, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3567 reviewsTripAdvisor (3567)
    Free WiFi

    True to its North Hollywood location, this 7-acre boutique property embodies a retro-cool atmosphere that will transport you back to the glamour of 1970s L.A. Though the hotel completed a $20 million makeover in 2015, it didn't abandon its past: Rooms are a nod to the hotel's '70s roots with bright orange accents and vintage-inspired furniture, but they're also equipped with more modern amenities like flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access and minifridges. When you're not in your room, take time to explore the rest of the property. The hotel offers complimentary activities for guests like its "Dive-In Move Night," where a classic film is screened poolside, plus a gift shop featuring locally sourced and California-inspired items (think California wines and specialty cookbooks). Even though you're within walking distance to a bevy of eateries, you'll want to stick around for at least one cocktail at the trendy Lobby Bar and a bite at The Front Yard, the hotel's on-site restaurant. When you want to explore off-property, The Garland's got you covered there, too: The hotel offers complimentary trolley service to Universal Studios and CityWalk, which made it a standout among its L.A. peers according to recent guests. Travelers also loved the laid-back ambiance of the property, with many saying it was an ideal honeymoon hideaway thanks to the comfortable rooms, unique public spaces and exceptional service.

    Beach House Hotel Hermosa Beach
    Hermosa Beach, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 946 reviewsTripAdvisor (946)
    Free Breakfast
    Free WiFi

    Southwest of downtown Los Angeles is picturesque Hermosa Beach, and in that town is a picturesque hotel: Beach House Hotel Hermosa Beach. Recent guests appreciated the property's throwback, New England-cottage feel. All 96 studio suites feature fireplaces and flat-screen televisions, and most also offer a pretty good view of the Pacific Ocean (though you should make reservations as early as possible to ensure the best vistas). The hotel offers a long list of activities, including access to walking paths and biking trails, a center and a full-service spa. But take note: Beach House Hotel does not have its own restaurant. (It does, however, offer complimentary continental breakfast.) And rest assured that previous visitors say the hotel's primo location puts it within walking distance of numerous eateries.

    The Mosaic Hotel Beverly Hills
    Beverly Hills, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 762 reviewsTripAdvisor (762)
    Free WiFi

    The Mosaic Hotel Beverly Hills offers an intimate and peaceful environment. The hotel is one of the smallest, most understated luxury hotels in Los Angeles, housing only 49 guest rooms. But many recent guests say it's exactly what they were looking for. Accommodations include amenities such as Nespresso machines, luxurious linens and marble bathrooms with white stone vanities and rainfall showers. Recent guests describe The Mosaic as the city's little secret, noting that the hotel offers great value compared to other Beverly Hills properties. Many visitors say that lounging by the pool was one of their favorite experiences at the hotel. Although it may be small, the pool offers a secluded oasis in which to enjoy a mid-afternoon snack (or drink).

    W Hollywood
    Hollywood, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1986 reviewsTripAdvisor (1986)

    If you're looking for a one-of-a-kind mix of old Hollywood glamour and cutting-edge style, consider booking a room at the W Hollywood. Guests claim this W is worth every one of its four stars for a number of reasons, including its hip lobby bar, The Living Room, not to mention a trendy rooftop pool. Along with The Living Room, this W outpost also offers California bistro fare at Delphine, and a New York street cafe atmosphere at Station Hollywood. Rooms here are sleek and chic, with a gray and white color palate that's emboldened by colorful accents and deluxe amenities like iPod docking stations, flat-screen TVs, high-speed Internet access and minibars. The clientele also offer a word of warning: This hotel on the infamous Hollywood Boulevard isn't for those seeking peace and quiet –it's more party-oriented. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles
    Los Angeles, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 539 reviewsTripAdvisor (539)
    Free WiFi

    The Ace Hotel opened in January 2014 after a complete renovation of the historic United Artists Theater and recent guests describe the look of this downtown Los Angeles hotel as trendy, but true to its past. The hotel nods to its history with a restored 1,600-seat movie theater, but recent guests appreciated its modern amenities, too, like the juice shop, rooftop pool and lounge, and the contemporary L.A. Chapter restaurant. All of the loft-style rooms have an urban, industrial design and feature flat-screen TVs, minibars and free Wi-Fi access. Guests who stayed on lower floors caution that rooms are small and late night noise can seep in from the streets, and suggest opting for an upgraded room or higher floor for more square footage and a private terrace. The majority of visitors applauded the staff's friendliness and note that they're exceptionally knowledgeable of the area.

    The Portofino Hotel & Marina, A Noble House Hotel
    Redondo Beach, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1999 reviewsTripAdvisor (1999)

    The opulent Portofino Hotel & Marina has quite a following among Los Angeles travelers who like to dine well: BALEENkitchen restaurant is many guests' favorite part of the hotel thanks to its delicious contemporary American cuisine. The rooms don't disappoint, either, with flat-screen TVs, minibars, complimentary Internet access and balconies. And no matter which side of the hotel you end up on, you'll be able to see the water. However, travelers recommend requesting a room on a higher floor to avoid obstructed views. This Noble House property also has a pool and a collection of bikes available to borrow, and visitors can take advantage of the hotel's waterfront location with a day on the beach (or in a boat).

    Free WiFi

    The plusses of staying in Burbank  about 11 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles  include the neighborhood's proximity to many of L.A.'s top things to do, as well as the chance to be in the vicinity of the true entertainment hub of California (this is where both "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "Conan" are filmed). And when staying in the Hotel Amarano Burbank specifically, the perks include the cozy rooms and suites (132 in total), all of which are outfitted with 42-inch plasma TVs, iPod docking stations, complimentary Wi-Fi access, Keurig coffee makers and Gilchrest & Soames toiletries. Outside your digs you'll find a saltwater pool and a courteous front desk staff ready to welcome you to the hotel with Parisian chocolates.

    Free Breakfast
    Free WiFi

    Travelers are impressed with Shade's one-of-a-kind spin on luxury. Case in point: Special touches are in each of the hotel's 38 rooms, such as the Heat & Glo Cyclone Fireplaces installed through the hotel, or the Sanijet Hydrotherapy tubs, Keurig coffee machines and king-sized Tempur-Pedic beds. The cuisine served at Zinc is just as artfully crafted, with small plates of tacos, sashimi salad and aromatic cheeses. Travelers praise the complimentary breakfast and the hotel's close proximity to Los Angeles International Airport – less than 6 miles north. But there's a price to pay for staying here: Some guests complain of late-night noise, and others were thrown off by the property's dramatic design. But if you can look past the aesthetics, you'll enjoy a bevy of standout amenities, including complimentary access to the nearby Equinox Fitness Club, complimentary Wi-Fi access and free use of the hotel's strand cruiser bicycles.

Most guests were thrilled with their experience except for one detail: cost. Some visitors note that services, such as valet parking, will put a significant dent in your wallet.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1252 reviewsTripAdvisor (1252)
    Free WiFi

    The guest rooms at this hotel in L.A.'s Koreatown get an A-plus for style. Exposed cement walls encompass custom furnishings, local artwork and floor-to-ceiling windows that boast stellar views of downtown Los Angeles. Accommodations here are also tech-friendly, with flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi access and iPod docking stations. The minimalist yet trendy design also finds its way up to the outdoor pool deck and into the on-site restaurants, including Commissary, which is a working greenhouse restaurant. For on-site fun, there's POKETO, a local design shop, and BREAKROOM 86, a popular nightclub. But some recent guests said the ultra modern vibe wasn't right for them and standard rooms are small for the price point. Still, visitors say this location can't be beat.
