Known for its theatres and live music, cultural venues include Walt Disney Concert Hall, Microsoft Theater and La Brea Tar Pits. Other popular sights include Staples Center and Hollywood Walk of Fame.
What is a historic hotel like in Los Angeles?
A historic hotel gives guests a chance to stay in a place that’s been recognised with an official historic designation. Historic hotels throughout the world have had many former lives and uses, such as castles, stately homes, palaces or even pubs, lodges, old police stations or skyscrapers — any building that’s been identified as being of special interest. These types of hotels in Los Angeles often retain original characteristics like traditional architecture and period features in their communal spaces or guestrooms.
What is the difference between a historic hotel and a heritage hotel?
The two are similar. “Historic hotel” is more commonly used in the U.S., whereas “heritage hotel” is common in Asia and Europe. Historic hotels tend to put more importance on the architecture and building. A heritage hotel draws meaning mainly from the place’s cultural value and how it influenced the community.
Do historic hotels in Los Angeles have modern facilities?
Yes. Every effort is made to preserve historic facades and treasured traditions, but interiors include modern conveniences and safety features. Guests can expect the usual amenities you’d find in a hotel such as WiFi, heating and air conditioning, and updated bathroom facilities. In Los Angeles, booking a historic hotel doesn’t mean you’re picking a place that’s rundown.
