Model or not, you need a space to get runway ready…

Los Angeles Fashion Week officially kicks off on Oct. 18 and if you have recently found yourself with show tickets, a model gig or BTS role but still need accommodations, we have you covered.

Here at Loop, we’ve found a variety of haute hotels to give you perfect access to both the LAFW campus in Hollywood, as well as the Art Hearts Fashion shows in DTLA. 

Moxy Downtown Los Angeles

Just opened a few months ago, the brand new Moxy hotel in Downtown LA is meant to bring affordable luxury to younger consumers. The rooms are more comparable to European hotels in terms of size, but the swanky decor and price point more make up for it. 

The AC Marriott hotel has a plethora of amenities, including a rooftop pool, multiple cafés and the buzzed about Level 8 which is multi-venue, dining, drinking, and entertainment experience, sprawling across 30,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space  that boasts unparalleled skyline views. In total, there are 12 restaurants and bars on the hotel property alone! Wi-fi is included and guests can check out bikes for free to get around the neighborhood.

The Moxy is also definitely Art Hearts Fashion approved as Level 8 will be hosting its afterparty and it is just a little over a mile away from The Majestic Downtown, where all the events will be taking place.

Regardless of your choice, guests are treated to rustic modern decor that brings out this historic building’s character. All guests also have access to the rooftop pool and the multiple bars and restaurants, including the popular Broken Shaker, on the property.

Hotel Per La

Fashion week can get very stressful, very quick. Therefore, coming back to a tranquil hotel room can be just what you need after a long day. Hotel Per La transports guests to the Italian countryside with their “Italian inspired, Los Angeles Curated” motto. They describe themselves as “an urban escape in the heart of Los Angeles” with their skyline views, special cuisine and calming rooftop pool.

Guests who walk into Hotel Per La are immediately pleased with the attention to detail by the staff as well as the design with different patterns, chandeliers and furniture that meld together to make a beautiful (and instagrammable if we might add) hotel. 

We couldn’t think of a better place to take your pictures before heading off to fashion week. Also, it won’t take long for you to switch between the crowds of fashion week and your tranquil space. because Hotel Per LA is only 0.4 miles from the Art Hearts Fashion shows.

The Thompson Hollywood

Thompson Hollywood describes itself as a place for guests who have a “sophisticated lifestyle.” Hyatt Hotels brought in London-based designer Tara Bernerd & Partners to create an interior that alludes to California’s laidback lifestyle while still having a global sensibility. 

This hotel is not short on amenities. It wouldn’t be a top LA hotel without a pool and dining with a view, and there’s also a gym for guests to get their workout on., Thompson’s main attraction is Bar Lis, a renowned LA bar with rooftop skyline views and specialty cocktails. 

LAFW and Thompson Hollywood are practically neighbors, as they are only 0.2 miles from each other, a two minute car ride or four min walk of your choosing.

The Prospect Hollywood 

An intimate hotel with character, the Prospect Hollywood will give an experience like no other. With only 24 rooms, each space is inspired by a former Hollywood resident or neighbor. Every room is filled with distinct designs from cheetah print to tropical patterns. The building was originally built in 1939 and all the renovations have been around keeping a classic, vintage feel.

In the hotel’s center, guests stroll through a garden filled completely with Hollywood’s natural vegetation. Guests can also stroll through the surrounding neighborhood known as Whitley Heights, which is considered one of the first areas to give birth to what is modern-day Hollywood. 

Another short distance from the LAFW campus at NYA studios, Prospect Hollywood is 0.7 miles away.

W Hollywood

This hotel sits in the middle of all the action Los Angeles has to offer. Located on Hollywood and Vine, W Hollywood has easy access to the Walk of Fame, The Hollywood Pantages Theater, the Capital Records building and more. Though, the excitement does not stop with the lively environment. 

The hotels main restaurants offer American fare, and there is a rooftop pool for guests to take in all the views. There’s even a recording studio inside the hotel. Breakfast is of course included and the modern interior is nothing less than what would be expected for a top Hollywood spot.

The Hollywood Roosevelt

For an iconic LAFW, stay at an iconic Hollywood hotel. The historic Hollywood Roosevelt now describes itself as “a reinvented Hollywood hotel,” but it played a significant role in the Hollywood Golden Era. Previous guests include Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin and Clark Gable. 

The interior still pays homage to the 1950s and 60s with a variety of suites and rooms as lavish as the Gable and Lombard Penthouse (named after the Hollywood couple who used to live in the three story space) as well as the Roosevelt Suite that has Spanish inspired interior and a king canopy bed. There’s also rooms for guests who want something more minimalist, including the Cabana Gardens furnished with natural oak and bronze detailings and stark white linens.
