For an absolute blowout, we love the huge Penthouse suite, which comes with a smoky-tinged glass eight-seater table, an infinity pool-style Jacuzzi and 1970s black leather Danish chairs. We also adore the rooms on the east side of the hotel, which offer great views of the Hollywood sign and the mountains beyond.
Part of a two-level rooftop area, the heated outdoor pool, surrounded by sunloungers beneath citrus and olive trees, lies next to a cocktail bar that offers views of the whole city.
