Highs & Lows

  • The rooms. Immaculately designed. From the unique light fixtures to the colorful carpets.

  • My room came with two flat-screen televisions and two toilets. And tons of closet space.

  • The bed. Make sure to set several alarms and request a wakeup call, because you’ll never want to wake up.

  • Natural light, so many windows, DTLA views.

  • And the star of the room: The freestanding tub in the bedroom. (There’s a swanky shower too.)

  • The grandest of lobbies. So much velvet. Note: It’s very dimly lit.

  • The original restored, soaring coffered ceilings. Incredible.

  • Hot as hell bellmen. Very kind and helpful front desk employees.

  • Everyone raves over the restaurant, The Mezzanine, but I can only tell you about my experience -- and I opted for a yum cheese plate via room service.

  • Next door is the very cute, Venice, Italy-inspired Coffee Bar. Quirky red chandeliers. Also: There’s a million croissants to choose from. My tastebuds were very happy with the strawberry croissant. Oh, and yes my cold brew was great.

  • The popular rooftop replete with a pool and a bar. Nicely designed. Love the assortment of lush plants, the DTLA skyline, the people watching. It’s open to the public for lunch and for evening cocktails and snacks -- but by reservation only. It’s one of LA’s buzziest spots at the moment, so, good luck with that!

  • Yes, DTLA has become the buzz-y (and, as a result, increasingly gentrified) area for the fashion-y and/or artsy types over the past few years. But, if you wonder with your $6 cold brew a few blocks away from this luxuriousness, you’ll find yourself in the heartbreaking Skid Row. If someone told you it was getting better, don’t believe them.

  • I tend to always forget something. This time, toothpaste, which is not provided. Luckily, 7-Eleven is across the street.

Important Bits

  • Type

    Historic-bank-turned-stunning-new-ish-hotel.

  • Vibe

    Old Hollywood glam albeit with a very hip, modern day twist. The 1920s-era building was once the headquarters for The Bank of Italy, and it retains a lot of that vibe: those restored, soaring gold and blue coffered ceilings are everything. I particularly loved The Coffee Bar, located next door and inspired by the iconic cafes of Venice, Italy.

  • Location

    DTLA.

  • Rooms

    241 lavish lovelies.

  • Music

    I don’t recall, tbh, but I spent most time in that heavenly bed. I suspect there’s some bangers on the rooftop in the evenings.

  • Year Opened

    Early 2018!

  • Designed By

    Sydell Group. They’re responsible for The Line and Freehand, by the way.

  • Health & Wellness

    Rooftop, very Instagram-friendly pool. In the evening, you’ll find the Los Angeles cool kids crowding the rooftop bar.

  • Restaurant

    The Mezzanine, which overlooks the incredible lobby. It’s the first LA restaurant from Daniel Humm and Will Guidara, who are responsible for NYC’s lauded Eleven Madison Park, so, you know it’ll be great.

  • Bar

    Several. Just off the main lobby is The Giannini Bar. On the rooftop by the pool, another bar. And even The Coffee Shop starts serving cocktails in the evening.

  • Minibar

    Yep. Overpriced boutique hotel snacks as you’d imagine. Reminder: 7-Eleven is across the street.

  • Children

    I didn’t see any, thankfully.

  • Price

    Expectedly expensive. It’s the buzziest LA hotel ATM, it’s undeniably gorgeous, the rooftop bar is the place to see and be seen, the cheese plate is really good, etc.
