Welcome to your fantasy bachelor party setting: It has more marble than Italy, is bigger than Texas, and sits smack in the middle of Los Angeles. LA hotels are known to offer a high level of luxury, and staff make sure everyone is getting the A-list treatment, celebrity or not. Book a suite in one of these five bachelor-party-friendly hotels, and you’ll instantly feel like a movie star.
Hotel Bel AirHotel Bel-Air, Stone Canyon Road, Los Angeles, CA, United States
Legendary? Absolutely. Affordable? Depends. Hotel Bel Air is the creme de la creme: if you want to keep things buttoned up and sophisticated, book a room here. The five-star hotel in a self-contained, 12-acre oasis where the service is impeccable, the amenities (outdoor pool, spa, Wolfgang Puck restaurant) are top notch. Rooms start at $675, though we recommend doing it right with one of the 35 suites, which start at $905 (the Junior Pool Suite opens directly to the pool, which Marilyn Monroe made famous with a legendary photo shoot). If you have some serious money to burn, the $17,000 Presidential Suite has a grand piano, private pool, Jacuzzi and fireplace in a private Spanish courtyard.
Sunset MarquisSunset Marquis, Alta Loma Road, West Hollywood, CA, United States
If rock n roll is in your blood, Sunset Marquis will be your preferred destination in LA. This iconic hotel is famed for hosting pretty much every rock star you can think of, and it’s still a magnet for modern-day musicians. As tribute to its music history, there’s a famous on-site gallery with prints of famous rockers. Sunset Marquis is more than just history though. A laid-back hideaway with two outdoor pools, a Michael Schwartz restaurant, and landscaped gardens, it’s also conveniently located: just a short stroll from Sunset Boulevard. Rock stars don’t believe in basic rooms, so there are only villas and suites here. Suites (the smallest is 575 square feet), start at $335, while villas (450 square feet)–which overlook the gardens and are more private–start at $515. Book the Grand Deluxe Villa Presidential if you want some truly impressive digs to bring the party back home to. It has a tricked-out living room with a fireplace and baby grand piano as well as private patio to watch the sunrise when you’re on your 20th cocktail. It’ll going to set you back $2,250, but it’s worth it.
Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly HillsFour Seasons Hotel Los Angeles At Beverly Hills, South Doheny Drive, Los Angeles, CA, United States
If you want a guaranteed celebrity sighting, book a room at Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills (not to be confused with Four Seasons at Beverly Wilshire). You don’t even have to stay overnight, to be honest. Go for a drink at the bar and you’ll see at least one famous face in the ten minutes you’re nursing that cocktail. This five-star hotel hosts most of the big parties in town, so celebrities are constantly hunkering down here. It’s in a great location on Doheny, and it has an outdoor pool, an outdoor Jacuzzi, the amazing Culina restaurant, in-room dining and a lounge (where you’re probably sit the a chair that has been graced by sixty different celebrity asses in the past four days). All rooms have balconies, and the basic ones starts at 380 square feet for $600. If you upgrade to a luxury suite on one of the higher floors, you’ll get panoramic views from the wraparound balcony and double the space for $1,500. If you crave extreme luxury, you need to book one of the two presidential suites that average 3,000-square feet. They feel like a presidential suite, with 8 balconies, state-of-the-art kitchen and basically a whole service team. They both feature two rollaways so you can squeeze your entire crew in with you. At $11,000 a night, the price is as presidential as the suites themselves.
W HollywoodW Hollywood, Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA, United States
W Hollywood is in the middle of all the action, located right on Hollywood Boulevard. It has all the bells and whistles of a W Hotel, including a modern design, an outdoor pool deck, a Bliss spa, “Whatever/Whenever” 24-hour service, and a busy outdoor lounge with live DJs. The rooms might not blow you away, compared to the other hotels on this list, but they’re still spot on. A basic room (around 400 square feet) starts at $400, and Fantastic Suites start at $800 for 860 square feet. You get floor-to-ceiling windows with great views, 50-inch plasma TVs, and plenty of space to party. The Extreme Wow Suite is pretty dreamy at 1,660 square feet, with a separate living room, a built-in bar, and sweeping views of Hollywood. It’s perfect for bachelor partying, and the rate hovers around $2,000.
Chateau MarmontChateau Marmont, Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood, CA, United States
Chateau Marmont has pandered to the rich and famous since the 1930s and celebrities have visited, stayed, partied, and even died here. So if you want to party like a celebrity, stay here (unless you want to party like John Belushi, in which case this might not be the best spot for you). The hotel is visually stunning–with gothic arches, a tropical landscape, a castle-like exterior straight out of a fairy tale. Considering its legacy and star appeal, the hotel’s standard rooms don’t burn a hole in your wallet at $435 (though they’re a bit small at 300 square feet). We suggest the Garden Cottage ($600), which is accessible through a private street entrance and comes equipped with full kitchens and dining areas. If you really want to splurge, the Hillside Bungalows are $2,200, and they are ridiculously huge, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, living rooms with fireplaces, full kitchens, and separate dining areas, a private parking space and private garden with direct pool access. If money isn’t an object (and you’re not the hotel room sharing type), nab the Presidential Suite (1,200 square feet) with two private terraces and perfect views . It starts at $2,700.
