The newest boutique hotel in Los Angeles is a polished-up jewel in an unlikely spot. Long a residential neighborhood, historic Whitley Heights was home to legends Rudolph Valentino and Marlene Dietrich, among others, along with many charming garden apartments.
The hotel, The Prospect Hollywood, is cleverly born of the latter, a protected 1939 Hollywood Regency design with vibrant interiors by Martyn Lawrence Bullard, who once called the neighborhood home.
The hotel’s lobby doubles as a stylish lounge where guests are served a continental breakfast under gilded palm trees in view of a lushly planted courtyard just beyond. Its 24 rooms are inspired by the silver screen and exude Bullard’s glamorous yet playful style with their vibrant colors, chinoiserie wallcoverings, leopard-print carpets and vintage finds.
The hotel also boasts an exclusive partnership with private work space and members’ club NeueHouse, which all hotel guests have access to during their stay.
The Prospect Hollywood has announced it will begin taking bookings for reservations June 15, 2020, and beyond.
