Strolls along Melrose Avenue and Rodeo Drive are fantastic, but serious shoppers know that the best place to exercise your credit card in Los Angeles is at the Grove. This retail and entertainment complex has it all: boutique and name-brand shops, exquisite meals and lively entertainment. If you’re looking to immerse yourself in everything the Grove has to offer, these hotels – bookable with Culture Trip – will keep you planted in the right place.
Palihotel knows you’re here to shop until you drop. This Melrose Avenue hotel is ready and waiting to keep you comfortable with custom beds, luxurious linens and a curated minibar. Resting your sore arms and tired feet in the suite is particularly effortless as this exceptional room features a claw-footed soaking tub and spacious balcony for post-purchase relaxation.
Don’t get too comfortable though; the Grove is waiting to give you another workout in the morning.
Pull into the Beverly Laurel Hotel and leave the car in park for the rest of your trip. The Grove is just over a 10-minute walk from your room, allowing you to break up shopping sprees with a dip in the outdoor pool or a quick lunch at the on-site restaurant.
A quick cab ride in the opposite direction will bring you to Rodeo Drive, where you can maximize those credit card points.
Chic guest rooms with a playful touch of color and imaginative art deco design will make you swoon over Carlyle Inn. Whether you’re sitting in a chair getting last-minute work done or lounging about in a luxurious robe, the comfort level in your suite is consistent from wall to wall.
Carlyle Inn may be 2.5mi (4km) from the Grove, but it’s just around the corner from a Jack In The Box and we think that’s as fair a compromise as any.
As you wake up in your light-filled double room at Beverly Terrace, West Hollywood waves good morning outside of your window. Brew a cup of artisan coffee and catch up on all of the celeb gossip from the night before.
Before you can wrap your head around the latest he-said, she-said drama, your rideshare has arrived. It’s time to slide on your shoes, slip on your sunglasses and make your way out to Rodeo Drive and Sunset Boulevard as your theme music plays, in true Hollywood style.
Just 1mi (1.6km) from both the Grove and Miracle Mile, AC Hotel Beverly Hills is your gateway to the best shopping, dining and museum hopping this side of LA. From the rooftop pool and patio, you’ll spot the Museum of Art, Hollywood Sign and Academy of Motion Picture Arts.
If you’d rather view the city from your king suite, the robot butler ACE will transport snacks to your doorstep. Not to knock the android, but we prefer to chit-chat with the bartenders down at the AC Lounge.
When you aren’t shopping, you’ll likely spend most of your time on Le Parc Suite Hotel’s rooftop. Ferree, tennis, yoga and soaking up the sun by the pool will keep you from too much credit card swiping.
These WeHo suites are so homey with their kitchenettes, private balconies and fireplaces that you’ll no doubt spend the twilight hours lounging around with a martini in hand, popping the tags on the new wardrobe you’ve purchased.
Take one look at the Kimpton Hotel’s A-list amenities and you’ll be tempted to book a long-term stay. Every night you spend in this luxe hotel grants you access to seasonal new release books, evening wine hours, complimentary 2mi (3.2km) LYFT dropoff and Nitro cold brew on tap.
Plus, you can stay active at the Mayweather Boxing Gym or in the rooftop pool, plus on custom Kimpton bicycles. And that’s only what’s yours to enjoy outside of your suite.
Embrace the French art de vivre at Sofitel LA, spending every waking moment lounging in your luxury patio room. Soak up the sunshine and never miss a moment of shopping – the nJoy exclusive contactless shopping service allows you to speak directly to designers, purchase from the best boutiques in town and get everything shipped right to your room.
Need coffee to fuel your retail therapy or a cocktail to wind down? The concierge will be more than happy to send anything and everything up.
The mile-long (1.6km) tree-lined stroll from Rodeo Drive to Viceroy L’Ermitage separates you from two distinct worlds. You’ll leave the fast-paced shopping streets behind for the seductive, secluded quarters of this luxury hotel.
A residential retreat awaits as you sneak into a suite adorned with custom-designed furniture and a set of French doors that open to a balcony with Hollywood hills views. Sip a whiskey neat at the Writer’s Bar then return once more to solitude and continue penning that passion project.
Your LA vacation doesn’t have to begin and end with a shopping trip. While you’re in town, make sure you enjoy the best outdoor activities and best day trips available, before dining at some of the finest restaurants around. There are also plenty of other great stays in the City of Angels – see the best hotels with pools and the best family-friendly hotels and book your stay on Culture Trip now.
