In West Hollywood, It's All About Flying Under the Radar

Le Parc Suite Hotel
West Hollywood, CA
Contemporary Chic, $$ (From $219)

Some occasions in Los Angeles call for a flashy Sunset Strip hotel that rolls out the red carpet and cues the flashing lights when mystery black cars approach. But most of the time, we prefer a discrete, stylish hotel where service and flexibility play a starring role. Located on a quiet, tree-lined street in West Hollywood's Design District, Le Parc Suite Hotel has a sophisticated, low-profile residential vibe. The all-suite hotel's spacious bedrooms, fireplaces, private balconies, and a guests-only rooftop pool suggest relaxed, longer stays and a freedom to roam about the hotel like you own the place. And if the views from the roof deck don't seal the deal, the outdoor tennis court with the Hollywood sign at one end and the distant Pacific Ocean at the other certainly will.

At a Glance

The Vibe: A Hollywood Hills pad to call your own.

Standout Detail: It's refreshingly incognito, tucked away on a quiet residential street where tranquility and privacy are equally respected.

This Place Is Perfect For: Folks splitting their time between LA and somewhere else; anyone looking for a low-key hideaway and the flexibility for an extended stay.

Rooms: 154 spacious, residence-style guest rooms offer hi-tech conveniences, services, and elevated only-in-Hollywood amenities such as private furnished balconies, kitchenettes, and living rooms with fireplaces — because the sun (and temps) eventually drop in LA. Jewel-toned furnishings and brass wall hangings add a bold touch to the otherwise simple and contemporary rooms. Those who want to linger longer in WeHo can choose from flexible options for extended stays — and get extra-large closets and a full-size dressing room. Those planning on hitting nearby Sunset Plaza or Melrose Avenue won't have any buyer's remorse for a post-pandemic wardrobe upgrade. This is Hollywood, after all.

On Site: The most sought-after amenity is the guests-only Sky Deck rooftop pool and hot tub with several cabana scenarios (perfect for chilling while contemplating a move to LA). An outdoor tennis court makes it easy to take a few swings before cocktails and canap├ęs at the roof's happy hour. Or take part in sunset yoga sessions on Wednesday nights with a DJ setting the mood to sun salutations. If you'd prefer to sweat without a scene, there's also a spacious gym and sauna downstairs. Cruiser bikes are available for exploring the neighborhood and visiting sister hotels Montrose West Hollywood, Grafton on Sunset, and Chamberlain, where guests have access to all hotel amenities, like the Grafton's Blues and Brews nights and the Montrose's Vino & Vinyl Hour, with complimentary wine to drink and records to play.

Food + Drink: There's no on-site restaurant, however West Hollywood's most raved about dining spots (Laurel Hardware, Ysabel, Norah) are five minutes away. Stock the in-room kitchen with fresh fruits and veggies from the year-round Melrose Farmer's Market (Sundays). A grab-and-go station in the lobby is the spot to get coffee and late-night provisions.
