The La Peer Hotel Is a Jewel in the West Hollywood Design District
From the location to the elegant accommodations, it’s luxurious by design
West Hollywood is known for its innovative vision and the local hotels keep raising the bar by creating first-rate spaces, impressive both in form and function. A case in point: Kimpton La Peer Hotel. When it opened its doors on February 27, 2018, it became the first hotel in the West Hollywood Design District.
Aiming to create “a symphony of the arts,” designer Gulla Jónsdóttir says her inspiration came from the neighborhood itself. Indeed, the hotel’s artful mix of shapes, patterns and colors makes an immediate impact. Rich juxtapositions of contrasting textures and thoughtful references to creative achievement reward the careful observer.
Uber-chic and ultra-inviting, the La Peer boasts more than 8,000 square feet, housing 105 guest rooms and suites, a courtyard pool, and a rooftop event space. Locals have flocked to Viale Dei Romani to try chef Casey Lane’s contemporary California trattoria fare with an emphasis on wood-fired seafood, vegetables, and handmade pastas. (The restaurant also offers 24-hour in-room dining.)
Want to grab a more casual bite? Just order a custom picnic basket. Then get out and explore. Complimentary Uber Select is available within a one-mile radius of the hotel. If you prefer to pedal your way around town, the La Peer offers personalized bike tours through Bikes & Hikes LA.

The District’s pièce de résistance is the Pacific Design Center (PDC), a 1.6 million square foot campus, by architect César Pelli. The center includes about 100 showrooms that display interior design, furnishing and decorating wares, some of which are open to the public by appointment.
Back at the ranch (make that, rarefied retreat) there’s the La Peer’s fitness center and resident private trainers to coach you through your sessions. The hotel offers in-room spa services, and many rooms have a deep-soaking tub and a separate shower, so you can relax in a spa-like setting anytime.
