Finding a gay hotel in Los Angeles should be determined by your itinerary, since the city sprawls further than the eye can see. If long walks on the beach are your goal, choose Venice. For gay nightlife and culture, West Hollywood will not disappoint. But if art and entertainment are your priorities, find accommodation in Silver Lake or Downtown.
West Hollywood/Beverly Hills
In West Hollywood, the Mondrian looks over the entire Los Angeles sprawl, as it's situated on a hillside of the Sunset Strip. The modern hotel is best known for its pool and Skybar which host frequent pool parties and DJ shows with bodies so ripped, it’s actually insane. For convenience, book during the best queer pool party of the summer: A Club Called Rhonda.
The Coral Sands Motel maintains a kitschy and vintage look; you might just wonder when Frank Sinatra will walk around the corner. Popular with locals and tourists alike, the hotel has a large hot tub and swimming pool located right in the courtyard.
The Hotel Sofitel puts you smack dab in the middle of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood. Burn off a few calories or just check out the great bodies in the state-of-the-art gym.
Ace Hotel Downtown LA is located in the United Artists building. It keeps its historic architecture but with modern amenities. You'll love trying to imagine all the famous faces and celebrities who once walked through its doors. Rooms come in various sizes, from small to loft to suite.
Los Angeles travelers appreciate knowing that the owners of the establishment are gay themselves. The hotel is a short walk from DTLA gay bars and world class art museums like the MOCA and the Broad.
