The coolest new addition to the Sunset Strip has become one of LA’s hottest hangouts, with Hollywood starlets, avant-garde artists and punk rockers alike coming to rub shoulders on the roof terrace.

Ian Schrager’s first spot on the West Coast impresses from the moment you step through the enormous wooden doors and into the triple height lobby, made from glistening Italian travertine and red cedar wood panelling.

There’s a rooftop pool for doing laps in as well as a destination restaurant, Ardor, a basement nightclub, Sunset– home to some of LA’s most raucous parties – and a zen spa offering CBD treatments.

The hotel is right in the heart of the bustling Sunset Strip, home to some of LA’s most infamous nightclubs, so you can expect to be right in the thick of things as soon as you walk out the door. That’s why you come to the Edition, though – to see and be seen.

You’ll find many of the city’s most sought-after bars on your doorstep, including Whisky a Go Go, the first ever music venue to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Surrounding area

While it’s common knowledge that LA has no centre, if you had to pick one, you’d probably go for West Hollywood (WeHo to the locals), which is well-placed for getting anywhere in the city.

It’s also one of LA’s most fashionable spots, filled with cool concept stores and buzzy rooftop bars.
