Chamberlain West Hollywood
Housed in a converted apartment building, this all-suites hotel is located on a quiet side street just off the Sunset Strip. Marble steps lead up to the front lobby, which evokes a retro-chic vibe with abstract artwork, mirrored walls, and an eerily lifelike alligator statue set atop the black-and-white, zigzag-patterned floor. The 113 suites are divided into four different categories, although each includes a gas fireplace and private balcony. Amenities include the namesake Chamberlain Bistro, which serves contemporary Californian cuisine, and the signature rooftop pool surrounded by oversize daybeds and panoramic views of the Hollywood Hills.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
