On a tree-lined residential street close to CBS Television City and the Pacific Design Center, this congenial low-rise hotel aims to make guests feel coddled, with extremely personalized service and a strong commitment to privacy. Even the most basic suites here are spacious (650 square feet) and well-outfitted with upscale accessories like wall-mounted plasma TVs and Frette linens. They also have sunken living rooms with fireplaces and private balconies. All suites were
updated with new furnishings in 2014. Secluded on the third floor, the hotel's Mediterranean restaurant, Knoll, is a convenient and very private spot.
