Petit Ermitage

Top choice hotel in West Hollywood & Mid-City
Image by

Bohemian-chic environs with Turkish rugs, old-world antiques, rooftop bars and fine booze set apart this intimate, one-of-a-kind hotel. No two of its 79 suites are the same, but all feature Venetian-style plaster walls, fireplaces, fun minibar snacks, and some have wet bar and kitchenette. Guests have exclusive access to an impressive art collection lining the halls, lots of chill spaces, and the rooftop bar/butterfly sanctuary.

It's also a human sanctuary of sorts; if you're looking for a party scene, head elsewhere. Note that the rooftop pool, surrounded by the Hollywood Hills, is what the hotel calls 'European style' (topless bathing allowed).

It's all in a quiet residential neighborhood (the building originally housed apartments), yet a quick walk uphill to Sunset Blvd or downhill to Boys Town. Overnight parking is $42.
