Luxury

Los Angeles is known for glitz and glamour and when travelers visit this West Coast haven they expect nothing but the best. That is where the Westin Bonaventure Hotel and Suites comes in. The largest hotel in town is also one of the top spots for Los Angeles luxury and elegance.

Located in the heart of downtown, this property is centrally located so you can visit all of L.A.’s great attractions like Universal Studios, Hollywood Boulevard or the Santa Monica Pier. However, this urban oasis was designed so guests will have the time of their lives without ever having to leave the hotel.

While Los Angeles has a seemingly endless supply of luxury options for visitors to the city, the Westin sets itself apart with its top-notch service, lavish amenities and unique activities like interactive cooking classes. Guests can sign up for an opportunity to receive tutelage from James Beard Award-winning chef Andreas Nieto in one of his monthly themed cooking classes.

For a more relaxing experience, schedule some time for an in-room spa session. More than just an in-room massage, this luxurious experience includes a gift basket with music and various aromatherapy oils for use during your treatment. Guests can choose restorative, relaxation or even couples massages. For the ultimate in luxury, go with a caviar facial to hydrate and restore your complexion.

For many of us a good night sleep is in itself a luxury and the Westin makes sure every guest gets one. Incredibly soft cotton sheets, down pillows and pillow-top mattresses pair well with the lavender balm essential oil available at bed-side to give you sweet dreams and an even sweeter night’s sleep. The in-room dining menu even has items designed to help ease you to sleep and even Fido can get in on the act — the hotel will provide a luxury dog bed for your fur babies.

Dining at the Westin is designed to give guests world-class meals at every turn. With multiple options to choose from, there is something for everyone in the family. The Lakeview Bistro takes advantage of the hotel’s unique architecture in the spacious lobby area. With a central atrium surrounded by the rising towers of the hotel, this is a great spot for a healthy breakfast or lunch before you hit the town to see the sites.

L.A. Prime is top-notch when it comes to Los Angeles dining. This stylish and sophisticated steak house offers stellar cuisine accompanied by a panoramic view of the city below. For an even more spectacular view, visit the 35th floor for the BonaVista Lounge, one of the hotel’s hallmarks. This rotating bar lets you take in the whole city while you relax with drinks and dinner.

With all these amazing dining opportunities within the resort it is comforting to know children are high on the hotel’s radar. The Eat Well Menu for Kids makes sure your little ones can enjoy their luxury dining experience with fun and healthy options designed just for them.

With so many ways to be spoiled the Westin Bonaventure makes sure guests to the City of Angels have a trip to remember. Whether you are enjoying a romantic weekend or a family vacation, it is a trip you will want to relive again and again.
