Start Planning Your Next Staycation at One of These 6 LA Hotels

Pack Your Bags and Take a Drive to Your Next Sunny LA Escape

Written By: Taylor Gorski Best Los Angeles Hotels

There’s no place like home…but there’s also no place like a king-sized cozy bed in a hotel with a view. While we’ve all been cooped up in our homes dreaming of travel, let’s start small and plan a staycation. If you’re working from home, why not treat yourself and spend a weekday working from a hotel? Or go full relaxation mode and spend a weekend disconnected. People travel all over the world to come to Los Angeles, and if it’s home for you, consider yourself lucky. Take advantage of these breathtaking hotels and plan that staycation you’ve been dreaming of. 


1 | Silver Lake Pool & Inn Best Los Angeles Hotels

Location: Silver Lake
Vibe: California Cool 

Situated in the heart of Silver Lake, this hotel is the dream destination for locals. Trendy restaurants and shops are within walking distance from the hotel, but you may never want to leave. The rooms are simple and warm, and the rooftop pool could not be more aesthetically pleasing. Oh, and don’t miss out on aperitivo hour (4 to 6 p.m.) at the on-site restaurant, Marco Polo. A refreshing spritz is only $11!

The only rooftop pool deck in Santa Monica? You read that right. If you haven’t seen this jaw-dropping, beautifully designed hotel on Instagram yet, where have you been?

4 | Freehand Los Angeles

Location: Downtown
Vibe: Unique & Trendy

Freehand Los Angeles will give you all the city feels. From loft suites to shared spaces, this gorgeous space is worth the stay. One of the best parts about the Freehand is the vibrant rooftop bar, Broken Shaker, that will transport you to a tropical vacay. Chill out under the hot pink umbrellas with a margarita in hand as you live that dreamy LA life. 


5 | The LINE LA

Location: Koreatown
Vibe: Eccentric Minimalism 

Looking to spice up your staycay? Look no further than The LINE, which has an ‘80s-inspired speakeasy called Breakroom 86. Enter through a secret kitchen, sing your heart out in the karaoke room, play a round of Pac-Man and dance the night away. Wake up the next morning and grab an Alfred latte, and don’t miss out on dining at the gorgeous greenhouse-inspired restaurant, Openaire. Not to mention, waking up to the view of the city is glorious.
