This place is made for famous faces, with its grade-A rooms with rain showers and hardwood floors, as well as its zingy indoor-outdoor rooftop bar, LA Jackson.

So, it stands to reason that the upscale Gulch neighborhood’s most popular hotel for celebs is hands-down pet-friendly (within reason, of course) and even happy to allow more than one at a time. Pet bowls and beds will be provided on check-in. Grab the leash, and take your pup on a tour of the surrounding Gulch, stopping at its many murals for photo ops.
