A high-end choice located within the west side’s California Plaza skyscraper, the Omni Los Angeles on Olive Street offers ritzy 4-star accommodations in one of the city’s biggest all-in-one hotspots. Offering 24-hour room service, distant views of the city, plus gorgeous suites that offer a refined aesthetic, you’ll be more than pleased with what you get. Upgrade your suite to a Club Room to get even more, enjoying quiet access to a private lounge that includes breakfast in the morning and cocktails in the evening. Make sure you have the means to see what’s outside your hotel as well, whether that means packing some good walking shoes or reserving a private ride of your own.
Start the morning early to explore the hotel, California Plaza, and beyond. Take in the breeze from the rooftop courtyard alone, afterward indulging in Japanese-American from the on-site Noe Restaurant & Bar, perfect for evening getting-to-know-yous. Take advantage of the unique landmarks inside California Plaza as well, whether it’s modern pieces at the attached Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art or gourmet sandwiches from Mendocino Farms. Walk through Grand Park before the sun sets, taking in the intimate downtown space renown for its open-air lawns and constant influx of trendy city-goers. Home to a subway stop, the park is perfect for delving into even more parts of the city, whether it’s Chinatown on the east side or Griffith Park hovering just north of downtown.
