Gay LA Los Angeles City Guide City Guides > United States > Gay LA Los Angeles Jeff KatcherianFlanked between a rock and the Pacific Ocean, rich in contrast and unpredictably beautiful, Los Angeles is a global city that constantly reinvents itself. As a unique cultural blend forms the heart and soul of this remarkable city, it provides an exploration into the various lives you could be leading. Where Hollywood glamour meets shabby-chic, and splendid world-class museums compete with dazzling everyday street art, the City of Angels indeed has it all: a big spectrum of outdoor activities, beaches and mountains, arts and culture, west coast design, culinary adventures, health and fitness; all accompanied by blue skies and never-ending sunshine. Although some individuals love to hate LA, they always come around for more- with such a versatile array of possibilities, there is no other city like LA. Looking for the ultimate LA travel guide?

For the eclectic and hip individual, the stunning ACE Hotel is the place to stay. The property is situated in the historic United Artists building, a historical landmark in Downtown Los Angeles. The rooms are modern, with effortless and classic charisma. For sunny days and starry nights, the rooftop poolside is predestined for a cocktail with a downtown view. Once you leave the ACE, downtown is yours to explore on foot. The rule that nobody walks in LA definitely does not apply in DTLA.Also located in Los Angeles’s chameleonic Downtown is Hotel Figueroa, an alluring, historic hotel renovated to keep up with DTLA’s increasing popularity as Los Angeles’s cultural centre – think hipster-chic, Spanish Colonial style. Although surrounded by museums, music venues, and art galleries, you’ll want to stay inside the hotel a bit longer to explore its two dining options and three atmospheric bars.There are three hotel choices for men who like to explore and party in West Hollywood. All are conveniently located in the heart of WeHo, and most attractions, boutiques and nightlife can be reached on foot. The Palihouse West Hollywood, a boutique hotel with 37 rooms is a cosy haven and urban lodge. It is a remarkable private place to come back to for rest and to enjoy a quiet refuge in the midst of WeHo.The London West Hollywood strikes with elegance and grandeur. Luxurious rooms and a spectacular poolside roof deck with a panoramic view, make for a very alluring choice for the gentleman who appreciates glamour and style.And although the Petit Ermitage is the closest hotel in proximity to Weho’s bustling nightlife, it sits quietly nestled on a small street up from Santa Monica Boulevard. Shrouded with verdant leaves that encompass the narrow entrance, the hotel is at first site mysterious and charming until you reach the otherworldly beauty of its rooftop. With its spectacular views of LA, large pin-striped, poolside lounge beds, and delicately ornate bar you will realise why you love LA.
