This Art Deco Hollywood gem thrived from the ’30s to the ’60s as a luxury apartment complex to the stars. (John Wayne, Elizabeth Taylor, and Marilyn Monroe all hung their respective hats here.) After being rescued from demolition in 2005, the building’s beautiful and quirky original features were lovingly restored, and sleek new amenities were tastefully and subtly integrated into the design. The Sunset Tower once again radiates old Hollywood romance and is yet again a "destination" for Tinseltown trendsetters. The views from the jazzy Tower Bar are unbeatable, and the spa is one of the best in town.
GO HERE WITH
Significant other – for the romantic, classic Hollywood vibes; girlfriends – for a spa and party getaway (it’s right smack in the middle of the Strip, after all)
WHY WE LIKE IT
Fab update of a classic–they’ve kept the Old Hollywood feel but updated with slick new amenities. Great access to nightlife and the complimentary Kiehl’s bath products will ensure that you look (and feel) your best out on the town.
AMENITY WE LOVE
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The pool is on the small side; lobby and hallways look just a bit run down.
GOOD TO KNOW
They are super pet-friendly (they even provide pet beds), and there’s a dog park next to the hotel.
