Spotlight: La Peer Hotel
Art, music, fashion, film and architecture enhance a new vision for innovative “unbuttoned luxury” at the La Peer Hotel, opening this Winter in West Hollywood. The Kimpton Hotel & Restaurant Group has partnered with revered Icelandic designer Gulla Jónsdóttir to meld its renowned reputation and novel take on hospitality with its most ambitious and boldly eclectic enviroment yet. Located in West Hollywood’s celebrated Design District between Santa Monica Boulevard and Melrose Avenue, the hotel intertwines into “a cacophony of spatial harmony,” as Jonsdottir explains, “taking design cues from our neighbors—from fashion to high-end furniture, artists, and poets—in addition to the array of creative visitors who gather from all over the world.”
International guests and locals alike are sure to marvel at the attention to detail, and chic yet relaxed aesthetics throughout the hotel. Each of its 105 guest rooms and suites convey a modern yet warmly artistic sensibility, also prevalent on the 4,000-square foot private rooftop terrace, in the indoor meeting and event facilities, poolside lounge and fitness center, and the hotel’s inviting indoor and outdoor dining and lounge spaces, which are sure to attract both La Peer guests as well as the area’s discerning nightlife and dining crowd.
Though WeHo offers an abundance of attractions and distractions, you’ll want to bask in the hotel’s organic cool during your stay, its earthy tones and natural materials throughout complementing unique European furnishings and art in virtually every corner of the property. From the vertical garden wall near the pool to individual room touches such as patterned tiles, white oak wood floors, luxurious open bathrooms with free-standing bathtubs and/or showers with geometric shaped windows looking out into some of the rooms, the La Peer Hotel offers provocative touches that set it apart from the pack.
In addition to the La Peer’s sumptuous accommodations and exceptional meeting spaces, a big draw is sure to be its new restaurant concept, “Viale dei Romani,” a modern trattoria featuring wood-fired seafood, vegetables, and handmade pastas created by chef Casey Lane (The Tasting Kitchen in Venice, Calif. and Casa Apicii in New York City). Savory and sweet bites are offered via breakfast carts, with light bites, coffees, teas, and fresh pressed juices available to enjoy in the hotel lobby and sunny outdoor courtyard area.
Personalized health and wellness programs, including yoga classes (each room is stocked with complimentary yoga mats) and private workout sessions provided exclusively by local trainer Marco Reed, will be offered on the open-air rooftop and in the fitness center. Other amenities include custom picnic baskets through room service, a refreshing bath menu with butler service, and “In Room Bottle Service” featuring everything you need to make your own trendy craft cocktails.
A partnership with Bikes & Hikes LA offers bike tour adeventures exploring the best of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, while the “La Peer Passport,” highlights the joys of discovering the neighborhood on foot. The passport, designed by local artist Katie Bright, is a fun guide and ongoing “Instagrammable tour” of the best hotspots, shopping and nightlife surrounding the hotel. Participating businesses give out passport stamps, good for exclusive hotel benefits.
A hospitality pioneer since 1981, Kimpton is world-renowned for its playful perks and personalized amenities, award-winning restaurants and bars, and welcoming atmospheres. The La Peer Hotel takes the hip sophistication they’ve established around the world to exciting new heights in West Hollywood, making it a true destination in one of the most vital and stylish parts of the city.
