Best hotels in LA 2023: Malibu, Beverly Hills, Pasadena and more

Where you decide to stay in Los Angeles might be the single most important decision you make for your upcoming trip to the city. Location is everything in the sprawling metropolis, where locals speak in minutes not miles (thanks to LA traffic).

The hotel you choose will largely depend on where you decide to spend most of your time in Los Angeles: the Eastside, Westside or somewhere in the middle. There are so many neighbourhoods worth exploring, from bustling Koreatown to the laid back Echo Park, but your base will be key – especially if you’re only in the city for a few days and want to make the most of your time.

So, whether you’re looking to stay where the Hollywood stars are, plan to kick back in the California sun, or you want to be situated near the city’s main museums and attractions, here is a list of our favourite hotels in Los Angeles.

Neighbourhood: Pasadena

(The Langham)

About 35 minutes from the centre of Los Angeles, you’ll find this enchanting 23-acre property, boasting classic architecture and a romantic facade reminiscent of a Disney fairytale. Spacious guest rooms are both timeless and elegant with Italian marble bathrooms, dark-wood furniture, and jewel-toned curtains. There are plenty of dining options to choose from on the property, including The Royce, an upscale steakhouse; the Terrace serving California fare, and poolside comfort food by The Hideaway. Not to mention the afternoon tea – a signature experience at The Langham. If you fancy a day of exploration, you’ll conveniently find several attractions nearby, including The Rose Bowl, the Norton Simon Museum, and The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Garden.
