With the film and entertainment capitol right here, it’s no wonder that Los Angeles rates among the top cities in the world for luxury hotels and resorts. The mild climate and sunny skies drew the film industry here at the turn of the twentieth century and here it remains to this day. Wherever stars shine, luxury follows.
It doesn’t hurt that Los Angeles also nudges the coast of California, where sparkling Pacific vistas and sizzling white sands draw sun lovers from all over the world.
It’s also a shopper’s paradise with Rodeo Drive in nearby Beverly Hills, as well as spacious malls and trendy boutique neighborhoods dotting the map.
Business and pleasure combine all over Los Angeles, creating a demand for luxury accommodations and meeting event spaces.
Take a look at these five hotels for premium Los Angeles luxury.
