Get to Know The Grafton on Sunset
Enjoy a luxe escape amid the energy and buzz of West Hollywood
The Grafton prides itself on being one of L.A.’s “boutique” properties, and while that might be a pretty piece of marketing jargon for some establishments, this West Hollywood hotel takes the claim seriously.
The Grafton’s boutique charm starts with the service, which is acutely aware of the details–from the warm welcome at check-in (May we recommend the Babylon Suite?) to the fact that The Grafton’s staff will create a custom local itinerary for any guest who requests one, filled with local hot spots, Los Angeles sights, and beyond.
We caught up with Matthew Aversa, a West Hollywood local and PR professional representing The Grafton.
In the Heart of Rock & Roll
Staying here is an opportunity to experience the energy and buzz of West Hollywood (and the world-famous Sunset Strip) while simultaneously enjoying a luxe, relaxing escape. The neighborhood’s status as a rock ‘n’ roll nexus is celebrated in fun and surprising touches in the hotel décor. Perhaps it’s a faux fur thrown over a red leather banquette, the tufted leather that adorns not only seats but even swinging doors, or the bright, minimalist, funky art reflected in sparkling mirrors.
Yet, as much as this hotel celebrates its iconic location, mere steps from Whisky a Go Go and the Viper Room, it honors the joy of relaxation, too. Once you’re inside, the chaos and excitement of the city melts away.
The Ultimate Escape
The ultimate luxury here is certainly the saltwater swimming pool, the largest on the Sunset Strip. The plush setting includes plenty of lounge chairs, carefully adorned in cushy pillows. Take it easy by the pool, or head to Bar 20 for live entertainment, without leaving the hotel. Only at The Grafton would you find a club so dedicated to rock’s penchant for happy deviance. Sexy and sleek, the bar pays homage to the classics of the ‘70s and the hair bands of the ‘80s. It’s the ultimate place to party till closing time—you’re only steps from your bed and the softest custom linens imaginable.
