Another trip I’ve been planning this year is California later in the spring. There’s no shortage of new, hip and sleek design hotels in L.A. but I’m in the mood for something old Hollywood. To me that means either Chateau Marmont or the Beverly Hills Hotel even though the two are totally different in style.

First, Chateau Marmont and its Loire Valley chateau meets midcentury vibe:

I can’t help but think of Somewhere.

I just loved that movie, didn’t you?

Then there’s the mission revival Beverly Hills Hotel with its iconic pink and green decor and the famous banana leaf wallpaper.

More than the rooms, I think I just want to hang out in all the public spaces and soak up all the history they hold.

Which would you choose?
