Haute Hotel: The Luxe Sunset Boulevard


Those who love luxury and privacy are going to go gaga for the Luxe Sunset Boulevard, a hotel so discreet you might not even know it’s there.

The Luxe is set on seven palm tree-filled acres between Bel-Air and Brentwood in a prime location on Sunset Boulevard in close proximity to Westwood: it is 1.4 miles from the Getty Center and 1.8 miles from the Geffen Playhouse Theater.

Guests will find amenities like an outdoor fitness center, concierge serves, laundry, dry-cleaning and pressing, secretarial services and a heated outdoor pool. 

The 162 guestrooms and suites here are 44% larger than the average Los Angeles hotel room, which means you’ll have lots of space to work, stretch out and relax (in that order). Top guests should book the one-bedroom luxe suite, which includes  24-hour room service, flat-screen TVs, custom duvets, a patio, whirlpool tub, wet bar, video games, a sunken soaker tub and a separate glass-walled shower. 

Make sure to check out the restaurant, which is currently open for breakfast and lunch, and which offers up French-influenced California fare in both an open-air and elegant interior setting. The neighboring Luxe Lounge also serves up custom-made and seasonal cocktails such as blood-orange and pomegranate martinis as well as small plates and appetizers such as signature pizzas, panini sandwiches, truffle pommes frites, Kobe beef mini-burgers, mini Ahi tuna burgers, cheese plates, and artisan-made fresh bread.
