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 gay accommodation in Silver Lake or Downtown. Whichever option you choose, you can be treated to a rich gay hotel Los Angeles scene that offers anything from budget to full-scale luxury.
Gay hotels West Hollywood/Beverly Hills
West Hollywood (referred to as WeHo by locals) is the main gay area of Los Angeles, and is home to several gay-friendly hotels in and around the area. The Standard Hollywood looks over the entire Los Angeles sprawl, as it's situated on a hillside of the Sunset Strip. It offers a modern, minimalist design, and is not afraid to blend bright colors and varied patterns in its decoration. As well as its in-house restaurant, Croft Alley, you can enjoy a dreamy swimming pool for those hot California days.
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.
Looking for luxurious gay accommodation in Los Angeles? The Hotel Sofitel puts you smack bang in the middle of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, and offers a class-A kind of experience. Burn off a few calories or just check out the great bodies in the state-of-the-art gym, before unwinding in the beautifully-appointed rooms.
Gay hotels Downtown LA
Ace Hotel Downtown LA is located in the United Artists building. It maintains its historic architecture, all the while including 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 and suite, and all offer a stylish New York-inspired aesthetic.
Gay travelers visiting Los Angeles appreciate knowing that the owners of this 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.
