LA gets a bad rap for its sprawling cityscape and tangled web of highways, but this can be avoided by decamping to the coolest neighborhood in the city: West Hollywood. Better yet, to digs that British GQ calls "the epitome of the living space you wished you were able to call home": the Palihouse Holloway.

The first impression of the self-described "urban lodge" is the lobby, where a collection of vintage furnishings and industrial accents lend a homey, well-traveled feel to the stylish space. And, appropriately, the property's panache inspires countless posts on design blogs: the lobby's cork mood board! the exposed brick walls! the Noguchi lamps!

Escape to the property that The New York Times calls "Los Angeles's answer to Soho House, without the private membership" for a two-night stay for two ($481).

Less of a hotel room and more of a spacious European flat-slash-LA loft, the Classic Guest Suite's sleek kitchen is stocked with top-of-the-line appliances and the queen-size bed is topped with designer linens. Other you-wish-you-had-at-home amenities include Carrera marble bathrooms with rainfall showerheads and, of course, views of the city and the Hollywood Hills. All this in addition to complimentary Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV, and a washer/dryer.

In the morning, grab a newspaper and espresso downstairs in the lounge before taking one of the hotel's vintage bikes for a spin around the neighborhood.

"[It's] in the middle of WeHo (West Hollywood), very handy for Melrose Avenue and Robertson Boulevard shopping and a few blocks away from the Sunset Strip, Hollywood, and fashionable Runyan Canyon for hikes," says The Telegraph.

After a day on the town, slip into one of the Adirondack chairs on the Astroturf rooftop to watch the sunset, or on chilly evenings, make your way to the lobby's fireplace.

Then, dine by candlelight on the patio at Palihouse Courtyard Brasserie—a happenin' spot during happy hour, but also an oasis from the noisy spots on Santa Monica Boulevard. While the table next to you may be a top agent and producer meeting to discuss an upcoming flick, the atmosphere is very non-sceney (no paparazzi here). Seasonal southern French cuisine is the focus, with charcuterie and cheese for sharing and entrées like chicken apricot pot pie, duck confit with peaches and a poached egg, classic steak frites with chimichurri butter, and a burger with melted gruyère and caramelized onions.

With a mellow members-only vibe, the Palihouse is a place you want into.

  • "Designed with a clean mix of wood, marble, and steel, all accommodations include (at minimum) a turnkey kitchen with high-end appliances, marble bathroom, and views of the city and hillside."
