The Hollywood Hotel: Luxury & Leisure

Hubert de Givenchy once said “Luxury is in each detail.” That is not only certain for great clothing but also for the crème de la crème of hotels. This truth became reality as we explored between the walls of what we would like to consider to be a Hollywood treasure.

Just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown L.A, tucked away in East Hollywood lives The Hollywood Hotel. Its’ contemporary, cosmopolitan, and luxurious atmosphere embodies everything that one would desire when looking for the perfect getaway.

Two of our favorite features were the courtyard and pool area, both beautifully designed for maximum relaxation. As we approached the pool area we were greeted by a host of various tropical plants which set the tone for the oasis inside. Surrounding the swimming pool was a blanket of perfectly manicured green, decorated with some of the most trendy chairs that if captured and posted on Instagram would turn any feed into one that is aesthetically pleasing.

During our stay we spent much of our time in the courtyard, which to our enjoyment was a picturesque Mediterranean retreat. The space was filled with quaint corners occupied by tables for two that were adorned with vibrant succulents. Stretching the rest of the quarter was cozy furniture and a gorgeous bar aligned with customized Hollywood Hotel seating where complimentary drinks and appetizers were served daily. As if that was not enough, lights streamed from the top of the courtyard creating a whole different world as night fell.

On top of all of that, The Hollywood Hotel fulfilled our usual checklist. The staff was kind, the rooms were cozy, and the complimentary breakfast was one to remember. Needless to say, we greatly enjoyed our stay. We’ll see you soon!

Letting It All Go

Have you ever just wanted to let it all go? I mean REALLY let it all go. No distractions, no stress, & minimal responsibilities! Sounds merely impossible right? Our thoughts exactly until we identified the source of our stressors & distractions…being glued to our laptops and cellular devices in efforts to stay abreast with social media. So what do we do now? Simple. Get out of town and detach ourselves from our devices for a few days. For us, this means picking up our camera, leaving unnecessary electronics behind and limiting our cell phone use to 30 minutes or less per day when we are away to relax. We also try to choose travel locations that promote creative thinking and inspire us produce even better content when we arrive home. We hope that this inspires you to get away and relax the right way.
