Who doesn’t want to live like a celebrity? For those who can’t fully commit to a life of pampering, you can still have taste of the good life. Visit Los Angeles during awards season to stay (and play) like an A-lister. We’ve put together some celeb-inspired hotel options to make you feel like a star.

Where to Stay in Los Angeles

Through February 29, 2020, InterContinental Los Angeles Century City is rolling out the red carpet for guests who book one of two VIP packages (aptly called “Steal the Show” and “Feel The Star Power”). Whether or not you're in town to attend a big award show, you too can feel like a celebrity with these luxe accommodations.

Steal the Show Package:

Kick back, relax, and soak up the impressive views of Hollywood, Downtown Los Angeles, and the Pacific Ocean from your Elite Residence Suite. During your stay, break out the bubbly at Copper Lounge, the property's swanky on-site bar. Not only is Copper Lounge the perfect place to spot celebs, but it's also a popular filming location for TV shows and movies. 

Guests who book this package will also enjoy a $1,000 shopping spree and personal styling session at Nordstrom Local. Afterwards, get the full hair and makeup experience in the comfort of your suite with Glam Squad. And, come nighttime, hit the town and enjoy VIP chauffeur service in the property's house Tesla. Rates from $1,750 per night (two-night minimum). Must be booked seven days in advance. Glam Squad treatments and Nordstrom styling session subject to availability at the time of booking. To book, call 1-800-327-0200.

Feel the Star Power Package:

Start your stay with a special Hollywood-themed welcome amenity that you'll find waiting for you in your Executive Suite, which features breathtaking views of the city. When it's time for a shopping spree, take the hotel's house Tesla for a spin. Rates from $350 per night. Must be booked 24 hours in advance. Tesla is subject to availability at time of request. To book, call 1-800-327-0200. 

What to Do in Los Angeles

Vanity Fair: Hollywood Calling Exhibit at Annenberg Space for Photography 

This iconic exhibition (which was curated by Vanity Fair’s creative development editor David Friend and the magazine’s former director of photography, Susan White) features photographic portraiture and multimedia installations that capture the magic and glamour of the entertainment industry's major players from the last four decades. The exhibition offers a closer look at the Hollywood stars and executives — and, of course, the parties — through the distinctive lens of Vanity Fair. With 130 photographs, this exhibit will showcase Vanity Fair's vaunted portraitists, including the magazine’s principal photographer, Annie Leibovitz, as well as Jonathan Becker, Harry Benson, Cass Bird, Horst P. Horst, George Hurrell, Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, Collier Schorr, Lord Snowdon, Firooz Zahedi, and dozens more. Visitors will also get an exclusive look at Vanity Fair’s documentary on the making of the 2020 Hollywood Issue, which offers a behind-the-scenes look at how the celebrities are selected for the cover. Admission is free. 

Where to Eat in Los Angeles

Before you leave town, be sure to reserve a table at Delilah, one of West Hollywood's most coveted restaurants. The eatery, which feels more like a modern-day supper club than a restaurant thanks to its exclusive vibe and clubby atmosphere, has attracted celebrities like Drake, Kendall Jenner, and Kanye West. Upon entering the space, you'll be greeted with a “no photos allowed” sign (it's worth noting that the policy is strictly enforced). To make a reservation, visit Delilah's website.
