Downtown’s urban-chic Wayfarer hotel offers travelers the chance to cook in a kitchen good enough for a top chef. The process is simple: choose from a set menu of Californian dishes, receive a box full of fresh ingredients and get cracking, meeting fellow guests as you cook. Other social spots at the Wayfarer – which has upmarket dorms or private rooms – include the Gaslighter Social Club, where you can create your own beer flights, sultry basement bar Lilly Rose and a rooftop cocktail joint with skyline views.

Some are also installed right next to the giant TVs, so you can catch up on Netflix while prepping your ingredients (keep your eyes on the knife, though). If you overindulge, work it off on the sports court or in the fitness center or whirlpool.
