Millions of visitors make an annual pilgrimage to Los Angeles each year, seeking sunshine, Hollywood glamour, or a host of other reasons.
And thanks to the city’s enormous scale, there’s a wide array of accommodation options for just about every visitor, budget, and neighborhood need.
From thrifty travelers seeking a quick getaway deal, to the well-heeled set that want to see and be seen, as well as high-powered business types, L.A. offers some of the most well-appointed and service-minded hotels in the world. Whether your needs are on the west side by the beach, in ritzy Beverly Hills, or downtown and beyond, you’ll find perks such as Michelin-starred chefs, stunning spas and pools, and plenty of A-list people watching to boot.
The financial barrier to entry at some is, as you might imagine, high. But it’s still lower than what you might find in other major cities like New York or London. Prices for four-star and up properties often start in the mid $100s for a standard booking in low season and escalate from there depending on the property and room choice.
We rounded up L.A.’s best hotels rated four stars and above, priced between $129 and $543 per night, and based on our own in-depth reviews and past stays. We also consulted prior guest feedback and ratings from sites such as Trip Advisor, Booking.com, and Hotels.com, as well as properties generating worthy buzz around town, renowned for their chic style and appeal.

Hoxton Hotels are revered for art and design, beloved by style-minded travelers. That’s especially true of their new LA outpost with a vintage aesthetic that offers a more unique experience than that of a cookie-cutter hotel, and sometimes, at a much lower price point.
I recently checked it out and found the Hoxton Downtown LA to be filled with artsy details and amenities that will satisfy visitors with high standards for comfort — but who’d prefer something reasonably priced.
Trip Advisor ranking: 137 out of 373
Hotels.com rating: 9.2 out of 10
Pros: The design-forward details and historic 1920s style feels more distinctive than nearby global chain hotels, and the rooftop pool alone makes a compelling argument for staying here.
Cons: You’ll need to be comfortable with some street noise, and this isn’t the place to find a sprawling room. Think under 200 square feet to start. But it’s a bargain, with rates starting at $129.
The iconic, nearly century-old Hotel Figueroa originally opened in 1926 as an exclusive women’s hostel by the YWCA. Now, it’s all new again. In 2019, the hotel completed a historic transformation, restoring the property to its original Spanish Colonial grandeur.
Rooms are decked out with smart TVs and iPad technology to help facilitate guest requests, but many love staying here for the excellent downtown Los Angeles location. Additionally, executive chef Adrian Garcia serves up a buzzy new Mexico City-inspired menu of elevated eats at Veranda restaurant, that I highly suggest trying.
Booking.com rating: 8.8 out of 10
Pros: The historic significance means the hotel and its rooms are filled with intriguing charm, and the address is super walkable within downtown Los Angeles.
Cons: Standard rooms can feel small.
The Line Hotel

The Line Hotel is a leader in this list when it comes to cool factor. Taking over a mid-century building originally from the 1960s in Koreatown, the Line Hotel opened in 2014 with a revamped, industrial-chic interior. The location is very central, near Hollywood and downtown, but I especially love the lively pool and bar scene, and rooms regularly priced under $300 per night.
Plus, the property is known for its on-site food and drink program, including the greenhouse-like restaurant Openaire, created in collaboration with two-star Michelin chef and native Angeleno, Josiah Citrin.
TripAdvisor ranking: 63 of 373 hotels in Los Angeles
Booking.com rating: 8.1 out of 10
Pros: Cool, unique, and buzzworthy hotel that delivers on the hype.
Cons: Rooms might feel small for the price, and the minimalist, industrial-inspired decor isn’t right for every traveler who might be more accustomed to traditional accommodations.
