Hotel Angeleno: The Delightfully Unexpected

Los Angeles is a city of many faces. Every time our travels take us there we explore something new. It could be a new attraction, new place to see the sunset, or simply a new curvy road in the mountains right outside of LA. This time our travels took us to Hotel Angeleno. Being on the crossroads of Santa Monica and Beverly Hills, this is a true gem that you simply cannot miss while travelling South or Northbound on 405. A tall round tower catches your eye immediately. First thing that struck me was their slogan, “We are not square.” From that slogan, the culture builds on, and every guest gets a chance to experience multiple amenities exclusively offered here such as a complimentary 3-mile shuttle to a daily wine hour from 5.30 to 6.30pm. Additionally, Hotel Angeleno is the only Los Angeles hotel that has directly partnered with Uber, which provides guests with an exclusive opportunity to order Uber at the front desk and have it billed directly to the room. Another difference at Hotel Angeleno is the “Skip the Tip” policy making the hotel and WEST restaurant upstairs completely gratuity-free. It might be unexpected for most of the guests, but from bartender to bellman Hotel Angeleno has got you covered. Centrally located, it’s only minutes to The Getty Center, Santa Monica Promenade and Beverly Hills. The hotel offers valet parking, and if you book your stay directly through their Inner Circle Awards you can enjoy it complimentary. Being a round building, every room has a view. Ours featured downtown LA, so every morning you could see the sunrise lighting up the city. Grab a cup of fresh coffee in the cafeteria and sit by the pool to enjoy it. After a day of exploring, get back to the hotel for wine hour, and don’t forget to check out the penthouse space of WEST Restaurant on the 17th floor. Being one of the Top 10 Rooftop Lounges in LA, it offers unparalleled 360-degree views of the city skyline. Read more at
