Hg2 : The Hedonist

Viceroy Santa Monica

How is this luxe LA hotel both ‘cosmopolitan’ and ‘shagadelic’ simultaneously? Much credit goes to Kelly Wearstler’s quirky design, which somehow marries veddy colonial British formality with a mad Mod 60s sensibility, united in an unexpected yet alluring colour scheme of parrot green, driftwood gray, and wavecrest white – it’s as pleasing to gaze at as it is to stay there. Everything flows fluidly into the next eye-catching attraction, from the minimalist front desk to the chic Cameo Bar (named for the oversized brooch dominating the lobby wall) into china-lined Whist restaurant out onto the posh pool and cabanas and back in again. No wonder it serves as a hotbed for fabulous locals seeking a cosmo, a shag, or both. And who better to advise on the hippest hotels in Los Angeles than the locals?
