The Los Angeles Athletic Club3 stars

Why this hotel? Athletic aesthetic. Great location. Free WiFi.

This atmospheric hotel, situated inside the city’s oldest private club near Downtown LA’s gay scene, whispers tales of film stars from Hollywood’s golden years. Club rooms and a distinguished bar characterise this institution that is over a century old.

It’s the facilities of the members-only athletic club that shine (entry is complimentary for hotel guests). Take the plunge into a heated lap pool, while indoor courts await for racquetball, squash and more. At group fitness classes such as yoga, kickboxing, pilates, and Zumba, you’ll be working up a sweat with an enviably fit crowd.

Windows with roman shades keep out the dazzling LA sunlight if you want to sleep in. Wi-Fi is free, but otherwise, rooms are purposely low tech.

With walnut wood panelling and checkerboard tiled floors, Famous Players restaurant is open for breakfast daily and lunch daily except Sunday. An American-style breakfast buffet, with hot and cold dishes like hash browns, scrambled eggs and fruit, is complimentary for hotel guests.

features: room service, restaurant, bar, gym, swimming pool, sauna

Freehand Downtown Los Angeles

Why this hotel? Rooftop pool overlooking skyline. Great location.

The hotel is located in the 1924 Commercial Exchange building (with the original neon signage still in place), former home to the publishing house responsible for Tarzan (you’ll find the novel in some rooms). It’s smack in the centre of Downtown LA’s gay action, close to hip bars and restaurants. Be sure to make a pit stop at the historic Grand Central Market.

The completely wood-panelled and pillared lobby area has sunset-hued walls. The rooftop area is dotted with flamingo-pink umbrellas and loungers – perfect for recreating a modern-day Slim Aarons pool scene.

The rooms feature solid wood furniture and more Navajo styling, with wall hangings and local artwork. Amenities include digital radios, 43-inch TVs, desks, seating areas, bottled water and a hanging basket of snacks.

features: room service, swimming pool, pool outdoor, concierge, tour desk, dry cleaning, atm, laundry service, shops, ticket service, luggage storage, souvenirs/gift shop.

Millennium Biltmore Hotel Los Angeles4 stars

Why this hotel? Peaceful and pleasant. Great location.

The hotel is in the middle of downtown LA and faces public Pershing Square Park, where outdoor summer concerts are held. This 1920s landmark hotel once hosted glamorous Hollywood galas. Rooms tastefully combine classic elegance and modern sophistication.

The hotel’s indoor swimming pool recalls the Roaring Twenties and travel by ocean liners. There are steam rooms and saunas in the locker rooms, but no hotel spa. Each room is uniquely shaped, running the gamut from smaller standard rooms to spacious suites. Bathrooms come complete with hotel-branded bath products.

features: gym, swimming pool, sauna, salon, jacuzzi, spa
