The City of Angels has it all; a balmy climate, classic Hollywood glamour and blue-sky thinking, literally. It’s a city that oozes positive energy and encourages some of the most creative thinking to come out of the US. We love it, and have rounded up some of the very best hotel suites in which to base yourself in and soak up the atmosphere, in the utmost luxury of course.

Presidential Penthouse Suite


Having only just begun welcoming guests, the new Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills set itself apart by reflecting the best of the Californian good life while providing uncompromised luxury. The most exclusive rooms here are the three huge penthouse suites; with the space of its interior and outdoor terrace combined, the Presidential Penthouse Suite takes up over 4,600 sq ft of space, high up on the hotel’s top floor. Floor-to-ceiling windows open the space up even more, providing a private show at sunrise and sunset and letting light flood in throughout the day. Lavish design features such as Noir Saint Laurent marble flooring, a California king-sized bed, a private spa and home theater come together to complete the decadent experience.
