What I liked:

This was our second time at the Angeleno. It's the perfect location, given that we have family up the 405 in Simi Valley, but want to eat and see things in Santa Monica/LA Proper. HUGE bonus that it has complimentary (valet) parking.

It's incredibly comfortable, has super-friendly service, and a few very nice perks. This time we actually left our car for a day and took advantage of their local car service—they drove us to brunch at Farmshop, then picked us up and drove us to the Getty! Awesome. Later, some family joined us at the pool with a couple of their kids. It was perfect.

What the hotel could do better:

Nothing, had a wonderful stay!

109 Favorite this hotel — to remember it, to save it to your wish list, or simply to express yourself

Hotel Description

America’s wealth of disused and neglected modernist hotels and motels is a resource we’d like to see put to better use. So the Hotel Angeleno comes as a nice surprise. This cylindrical tower on the West Side was a Holiday Inn, from that middlebrow chain’s Sixties tower period — today, though, after what must have been a herculean renovation, it’s proof that in the right hands it’s a small difference indeed between hopelessly dated and charmingly retro.

The clean lines and rich earthy tones look perfectly at ease in the LA sunshine, lending some grown-up gravity to this whimsical round building, and the typically friendly and attentive service doesn’t hurt either. Feather duvets, pillow-top mattresses and Italian linens whose threads are worth counting remove any doubt that this hotel has left its motel roots behind.

One thing that does remain is the location. Overlooking the 405 freeway, it could be more scenic, but in the land of the automobile, driving convenience is king — and the Angeleno’s location puts it within easy range of Santa Monica, Beverly Hills and the UCLA campus. Windows are soundproofed, and some rooms face the Getty Center, a welcome distraction. In the best rooms, above the 11th floor, views of the LA skyline, Santa Monica Hills or the Pacific make that freeway look farther and farther away.

If you’re not driving, the hotel’s car service is available for trips within the immediate area, and West, the top-floor restaurant serving classic American and contemporary California cuisine, is just an elevator ride away.

How to get there:

Hotel Angeleno is a 20-minute drive from Los Angeles International Airport but the trip can take over an hour depending on traffic. Valet parking is complimentary for guests.
