Los Angeles is a bustling city known for being home to countless celebrities, as well as iconic sightseeing attractions such as the Hollywood sign. While the city is home to plenty of larger chain hotels and resorts, it’s also not lacking in boutique hotels – typically defined as smaller hotels with unique design elements and amenities. Staying at one can be a great way to have a one-of-a-kind experience in the city – here are 8 that won’t disappoint.
The Charlie West Hollywood
This historic hotel was once home to comedian Charlie Chaplin. Nowadays, it offers guests lodging in the form of suites. Each suite features unique decor and is named after a Hollywood star. Guests can also look forward to relaxing on a garden terrace, and several local shops are within walking distance from The Charlie.
The Beverly Hills Hotel
This gorgeous boutique hotel features artsy decor – perfect for those looking to take memorable photographs of their trip. You can look forward to amenities such as an outdoor pool and a full-service spa. The hotel also features on-site dining options, including the upscale Polo Lounge and the more casual retro Fountain Coffee Room.
Oceana Santa Monica
For those willing to stay a bit outside of the heart of Los Angeles, the Oceana Santa Monica is more than worth it. As the name implies, this hotel is located in Santa Monica – about a mile from the Santa Monica Pier. Guests can look forward to a variety of amenities, including an on-site gym that offers free beachfront yoga lessons and a sparkling outdoor pool.
If you’re looking for lodging that offers quiet relaxation after a day of exploring the city, Hotel Bel-Air is the choice for you! This charming boutique hotel is tucked away in a neighborhood, meaning it offers guests more serenity than more central hotels.

The London is also pet-friendly, for those looking to travel with pets!
This modern boutique hotel features lush plants spread around and throughout, but that’s not the only way it's green.
