For less than the price of most hotel rooms in the area, this all-suite hotel offers large split-level studio and one-bedroom apartments,on a quiet street only two blocks from the Sunset Strip. Last updated in 2012, the contemporary rooms are plain but modern with plenty of comforts, from fireplaces to pillowtop mattresses to huge HDTVs and twice-daily maid service. Most rooms have balconies, and all but the lowest price categories have kitchenettes. The sedate atmosphere enhances the just-like-home feeling, though Privato, the restaurant (for guests only), has a lounge and wine bar if you’re seeking a little nightlife without the full-on craziness of the Strip. The only real view is on the roof, which has a saltwater swimming pool, Jacuzzi and tennis courts. This is a popular place for long-term stays, even among music and movie people who don’t relish a big scene. The hotel website always seems to have interesting packages and discounts, such as 15 percent off for booking at least 21 days in advance.
