Chamberlain West Hollywood
The combination of proximity and peace and quiet is an elusive one for those after the best place to stay in LA, but one that Chamberlain in West Hollywood has somehow managed to harness. This sleek, recently converted boutique hotel prizes that oasis vibe above all else, as it strives to pamper guests with brand-name bath products, private balconies, in-room fireplaces, and an eponymous bistro serving new Californian cuisine. The Chamberlain’s real gem, though, is its rooftop pool area, which provides views of the hills during the day and downtown’s glittering skyline at night. As visitors will be only minutes away from the Sunset Strip and Santa Monica Boulevard, though, it’ll be a touch call between lounging in the sun or hitting the pavements for some serious shopping.
