When I visited Los Angeles last year, I stayed a big "too cool for school" hotel where I felt like no one cared who I was or how I was doing. That's why on this trip, I decided to stay at the Avalon Hotel Beverly Hills again. I stayed at the hotel three years ago but that was before the rooms had been renovated so it was nice to see how they changed. What's really funny is that I was booked into the exact same room from three years ago. You can see pics here. The only complaint I had about the upgraded rooms is that you can no longer open the windows and there aren't any places to hang a towel in the bathroom if you use the one hook for your robe. But the marble bathroom is a thousand times nicer than the previous one so that made up for the lack of towel bars.
What I really love about the Avalon Hotel is that it is small so everyone knows your name and the entire staff is beyond nice. Let me assure you that I am not just saying this because I received a free room. In fact, I paid for my entire stay myself and didn't have to write anything at all. I wanted to because if you like design and would like to be treated well while you are in LA, then I recommend staying at the Avalon Hotel Beverly Hills. I don't think I will stay anywhere else from now on.

My vintage Chanel bag felt very at home.
The bathroom has lots of shelves for your toiletries.
