Expert Review

This 1927 property, listed as one of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Historic Hotels of America, offers 128 rooms, an Italian Renaissance décor, and an appealing rooftop pool. In the ‘20s and ‘30s it was a favorite amongst stars like Clark Cable, Carole Lombard, and Mae West, and today, each two-bedroom suite is named and uniquely decorated in honor of one of the many celebrities that spent time here during Hollywood’s golden days. Understandably appealing to classic film buffs, the historic hotel is also rumored to be a favorite haunt for guests in the afterlife – ghost tours are even conducted on Fridays and Saturdays from October through May.
