The Hoxton, Downtown LA

Last updated: 17 January, 2023

Housed in a grand French Beaux Arts building, once the HQ of LA Railway, the West Coast offering from this hip European hotel chain offers a first-rate example of the eye-catching architecture that the city’s Downtown area is known for.

With interiors designed by designed by AIME in collaboration with Soho House, the hotel has a distinctly clubby feel, with a living room-style lobby filled with reclaimed vintage furniture and creative types tapping away on laptops.

Its location in the Fashion District, among the city’s oldest theatres and movie palaces, makes it an ideal spot for exploring Downtown’s numerous art galleries and must-visit restaurants.

Surrounding area

With the hotel located in the heart of Downtown, expect plenty of hustle and bustle, as well as spots that are more than a little rough around the edges – the vibe here is distinctly grittier than Beverly Hills, but all the better for soaking up the city’s vibrant energy.

Surrounded by handsome high-rises and soaring skyscrapers, this is one of LA’s only truly walkable neighbourhoods, with numerous coffee shops, boutiques and restaurants to explore nearby.

Up until recently, Downtown LA was strictly for business travellers, but these days you’ll find LA’s most talked-about new restaurants and contemporary art galleries in this bustling, skyscraper-filled neighbourhood. It’s one of the only truly walkable areas in LA, but be warned that the vibe here is distinctly grittier than Beverly Hills.
