Best Western | Hollywood Hills Hotel
Originally built in the 1920s, this hotel was once an extended-stay residence for aspiring actors, famous gangsters, and prolific writers. It has since become a successful, affordable hotel that caters to both tourists and locals.
The design merges graphics and architecture to cost-effectively update the hotel’s identity, leveraging its unique urban setting and proximity to the famous Hollywood Sign.
Reframing a gritty location, two mismatched buildings, and a glamorized context has turned this hotel into a neighborhood landmark.
The 101 Cafe has been an LA institution for decades. Designed to be discovered, the addition of Minibar offers a scene out of Raymond Chandler’s Los Angeles.
