Part of the massive Hollywood & Highland shopping and entertainment complex, this 20-story Loew's Hotel is at the center of Hollywood's action but still manages to offer a quiet night's sleep with fantastic views of the Hollywood sign. Contemporary art (notably by L.A. favorites Charles and Ray Eames) and sleek furniture greet you in the lobby. Rooms are decked out in simple modern furnishings, with flat-screen TVs, rain showers, and large windows with blackout curtains.
Spa Luce, the hotel's poolside spa, offers nontoxic products for nail services, soothing spice-tinged body treatments, and spa cuisine. The hotel's restaurant and lobby bar both got new looks in 2014 to cater to the influx of conventioneers and corporate travelers who visit the property.
