Opened in 1923 with a design by Schultze & Weaver, the architecture firm behind the Waldorf Astoria and Park Lane hotels in New York, the Biltmore’s decadent Beaux Arts-inspired design occupies half a city block and 11 stories - its suites have hosted six Presidents, Bugsy Malone, the Beatles, and now, you.
Located about 15 minutes north of Hollywood off the 101 Freeway, the Sportsmen’s Lodge welcomes staycationers and out-of-towners in the know to check in for an under the radar escape that harkens to a simpler time - weekends involved Tiki cocktails, drive-thrus shaped like giant hot dogs, and waitresses on roller skates. In fact, the Sportsmen’s is a great place for a super relaxed, social media break—although the WiFi is excellent, for when you do decide to post some pics of your stay.
