These are the best new L.A hotels to visit in 2023

From the hip and historic downtown district to Hollywood’s trendy Sunset Strip, here are seven new Los Angeles hotels to check out this year. Share

Upscale neighbourhoods, the glistening Mediterranean sun and the trending popular culture scene keep you reminded why Los Angeles is one of the most sought-after West Coast destinations. For those who haven’t yet visited, the city may evoke images of Hollywood clichés, but there’s so much more to it than the burgeoning entertainment industry—its dedication to incubating edgy art movements and a passion for creative architecture means a ride on the Sunset Strip can end up in a thrilling mashup of extravagant dining, finding calm in the chaos of Venice Broadwalk or a detour to catch lingering sunsets on the Santa Monica Pier.

In a city that keeps busy helping people live their best life, L.A.’s burgeoning hotel scene aptly steals the show. From a modern, multicultural enclave in the heart of Downtown to luxurious suites in the West Adams neighbourhood, these up-and-coming establishments are bringing style, glamour and elegant stays to the heart of Hollywood.
