Destination Design: Los Angeles

BY The Editors | August 28, 2017 | Feature Features

Ready to broaden your horizons and get inspired for your inner space? Then, it's time to book your tickets. We've scoped out must-try hotels, gorgeous eateries, top boutiques and hot furnishings in four chic cities—Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago and Miami.
Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills

“Design, now more than ever, is critical to the success of a luxury hotel,” explains Luc Delafosse, the managing director of the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, which just opened this summer. “This hotel performs both visually and functionally in all areas. The rooms deliver a chic, elegant and fresh layout, and not only offer relaxing outdoor terraces and patios, but also seamlessly integrate technology features that will meet business and social expectations,” says Delafosse. While the 170 guest rooms are certainly exquisite, it’s the Waldorf’s many amenities that separate it from the rest. From the gorgeous La Prairie spa to a sprawling rooftop pool and bar, the hotel has it all, but its two restaurants from Jean-Georges Vongerichten propel the property to the next level of luxury. “L.A. has always had a great food culture,” says Vongerichten. “We will have a special niche here and bring something that’s totally different—flavors people have never had before.” We’re sold. Rooms from $815 per night, 9850 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills, 310.860.6666
