10 Best 5 Star Luxury Hotels

Los Angeles luxury hotels cater to the modern version of royalty, and here there's no extravagance they can't provide, and no special request that they can't satisfy — all while keeping you safe from the watchful eye of the paparazzi.

"Los Angeles" is a sprawling mix of multiple communities and other cities, including itself, the City of Los Angeles. It all makes for some confusion to those who are not familiar so always reference a map when planning to visit L.A. For our purposes, we're focusing primarily on the areas west of downtown — West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Westwood & Santa Monica. Public transporation is not really a good option for travellers so car rental or car/ride service is the best bet.

Hotel Bel-Air — A luxury hotel in Soho, NYC

Hotel Bel-Air


Built in 1946 in a style that can only be described as romantic Mediterranean, the Hotel Bel-Air, with its rose-colored mission-style bungalows, is about as elite a hideaway as you can find. Hidden by bougainvillea, ficus, orange blossom, and fern, on eighteen acres right in the middle of LA's most exclusive suburb, the grounds are mapped by terracotta passageways, and the reception area lies just beyond an arched stone bridge.

Beverly Hills Hotel — the iconic 5 star luxury hotel in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, California

Beverly Hills Hotel


The Pink Palace has, in true Hollywood fashion, had some work done; nothing shocking, just a hundred-million-dollar renovation in an effort to stay competitive with a new generation. Even without the glow of celebrities long since faded, it's a stunning luxury hotel. The standard rooms are lavish enough, mixing modern amenities like Frette linens and oversized bathrooms with 1940s Hollywood-classic decor, complete with private balconies. For true luxury, take advantage of the sprawling hacienda-style grounds by booking one of the bungalows. More...

The Peninsula Beverly Hills — A 5 star luxury hotel Beverly Hills

The Peninsula Beverly Hills

Beverly Hills

The Peninsula Beverly Hills is almost impossibly opulent, even by Hollywood standards, a cinematically pristine Renaissance mansion of the sort that takes offense at sparing expense. A favorite of industry bigwigs, the hotel means it when it boasts of executive-level service — from the fleet of Rolls Royces, Infinitis, and MINI Coopers to the lavish "programmes" with celebrity stylists and gurus, this is LA luxury at its shiniest. Starting at the top sounds sensible. This isn't just any rooftop, but rather a complex cocktail of spa, garden, pool, and California-cuisine eatery (with, yes, cocktails). More...

Mr. C Beverly Hills — A small Beverly Hills 5 star luxury hotel

Mr. C Beverly Hills

Beverly Hills

Mr. C looks the way you want a Beverly Hills boutique hotel to look — clean and crisp, sure, but classic as well, the sort of place that, in spite of its contemporary sheen, takes you back to a (possibly mythical) golden age of Hollywood glamour. Imagine a stylized black-and-white version of a Parisian luxury hotel, transplanted to sunny California, and you're most of the way there — though the shell of the former Tower Beverly Hills remains, inside it's utterly transformed. The C in this case is presumed to stand for Cipriani; the family of restaurateurs, it seems, is trying its hand at hospitality, and Mr. C is a supremely confident first attempt. More...

The London West Hollywood — luxury 5 star hotel in West Hollywood near Beverly Hills

The London West Hollywood

West Hollywood

The London West Hollywood at Beverly Hills (closer to the BH end) is the successor to the London NYC, bringing its trademark grown-up luxury to the Sunset Strip, courtesy of David Collins.The London isn't small, and neither are its 226 suites. Balconies and terraces are universal, and between the retro-influenced Collins-designed décor and the oversized spa-like bathrooms, they're more like pleasure palaces than luxury hotel rooms.

Viceroy L'Ermitage — A private 5 star luxury hotel in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles

Viceroy L'Ermitage

Beverly Hills

L'Ermitage aims for a Zen feel but it's in the details that the hotel is truly Asian (it's now owned by the Singapore luxury hotel chain Raffles). The towels by the heated rooftop pool are, at 88 inches, the longest in America. There's a lacquer box of chocolates in your room so beautiful that hardly anyone has dared to eat them. There's not one kind of bathrobe, but two — for those of you who just can't stand terrycloth, you can have waffled cotton instead. But it's the service that makes L'Ermitage truly exceptional.

Shutters on the Beach — A beach front 5 star luxury hotel in Santa Monica, Los Angeles

Shutters on the Beach

Santa Monica

Some call Shutters on the Beach the most comfortable hotel in the world — and they may be right. It's just the perfect mix of that Deco glamour, old world coziness and modern LA laissez-faire, but it also has a lot of what the modern traveler wants — quiet. Though we all like to be near the buzz, sometimes we don't want to feel like we're smack in the center, and Shutters on the Beach, which is invisible from the road, is that perfect paradox: an urban luxury hotel that feels like a resort...and due to some marvel in modern architecture, every room looks out to the sea.

Chateau Marmont Hotel — A classic 5 star luxury hotel in West Hollywood, Los Angeles

Chateau Marmont

West Hollywood

Of all the haunted hotels, the Chateau Marmont has to be the most glamorous. Located on LA's Sunset Strip, it is where Clark Gable and Jean Harlow got sizzling while she was on her honeymoon with another man. Howard Hughes got himself a penthouse and a pair of binoculars and spied on the girls by the pool. This luxury hotel is pure movie set. Constructed along the specifications of the Loire Chateau Amboise, it is a perfect eighteenth-century replica, fluted pillars graced by ivy and untouched by mold, with a swimming pool to boot. The lobby is dramatic, with gothic vaulted ceilings and dark wood. More...

Sunset Tower Hotel — A luxury hotel West Hollywood

Sunset Tower Hotel

West Hollywood

In the latter years of the golden age this Art Deco apartment tower was home to the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Frank Sinatra; and while today the mid-century atmosphere is still in place, it's no museum — there's nothing faded about the luxury hotel's sober, earth-toned interiors, and it's not collectors or autograph hounds but bona fide Hollywood players who frequent its halls today.

Casa Del Mar — A beach-front 5 star luxury hotel in Santa Monica, Los Angeles

Casa Del Mar

Santa Monica

In the 1920s Santa Monica was the place to party, and the Club Casa del Mar was the hotspot — at least for silver screeners like Charlie Chaplin and Mary Pickford. This would all change in World War II, when the building was used for military housing. It was rehabilitated by the owners of the neighboring Shutters on the Beach. But whereas Shutters is contemporary, unpretentious comfort, Casa is high Regency luxury hotel with tear-drop chandeliers, floor-to-ceiling windows and potted palms. The floors are marble and the curtains are beaten gold silk. Many visitors, in fact, are taken aback by the East Coast nature of its appearance — a Hudson River or Newport mansion dropped accidentally on the California beach. More...
