The La Peer Hotel has officially opened its doors in West Hollywood.
The 105-room hotel is at 627 North La Peer Drive, just north of Melrose Avenue. With its opening, the City of West Hollywood will be home to 20 hotels with others being planned or under construction.
The four-story hotel is part of the Kimpton chain. It has a pool and fitness center and more than 8,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor dining at Chef Casey Lane’s Viale dei Romani restaurant along with lounge spaces. It also has a 4,000-square-foot private rooftop event terrace. Room rates range from $372.40 a night for a “standard room” with one king size bed to $2,038.40 a night for a “La Peer Suite” with a king size bed.
“La Peer Hotel aims to bring a sense of ‘unbuttoned luxury’ to LA’s most walkable neighborhood in the Design District of West Hollywood,” said General Manager Nick Rimedio in an announcement of the opening. “The project has been an inspiring journey in preparing to realize a vision where we will offer our guests a chic yet totally engaging ‘home away from home’ defined by intuitive service and extraordinary dining by Casey Lane, among so many other amenities that will create experiences that are simply sublime. As the first hotel to ever open in the Design District, our goal is to become a beacon for the community where our neighbors are proud to call us one of their own and visitors get a unique view of life in West Hollywood.”
The hotel’s principal designer is Gulla Jónsdóttir, who has worked in architecture and design. It features an installation in the hotel’s backyard courtyard of work by graffiti artist Retna in combination with artist Guerin Swing.
The hotel is the first in the city’s Design District.
