You’ve hopped your way around the world’s most chic boutique hotels in the Hamptons, Napa and Ibiza, and your tastes reflect your appreciation for discreet, elevated artisanal glamour. That’s why when visiting the colorful mayhem that is Hollywood, you base yourself within the serene eye of the storm, at the freshly-opened Kimpton Everly Hollywood.
Discreet, sophisticated, the Kimpton leaves the bottle-popping and party-hopping to the kids, so guests like you can pursue your professional and personal Hollywood agendas in impeccably-designed surroundings that feel far from the madding crowd, while being minutes from the action.
This morning you’re taking Skype meetings with creative collaborators next to the Kimpton’s gorgeous lap pool, positioned so as to receive sunshine all day. You appreciate that your precious poolside time remains undisturbed by lookie-loos and Hollywood rookies—the Kimpton isn’t trying to publicize a happening “scene”, rather, it’s trying to preserve the privacy of the happening scene-makers who frequent it.
The bathroom doesn’t have a door, echoing your open-door policy for ideas. You look at out the expansive view of the Hollywood skyline. the glimmering lights of the Hills and that fiery pink sunset inflame your imagination, and you’re tempted to relax in your gorgeous suite—if there’s one thing you appreciate in this time of unending psychic noise, social media and bustle, it’s the peace and quiet you need to think, create and relax.
Having always appreciated the stylish Malibu lifestyle, you feel very at home among the light, woods and earth tones of the Kimpton. The property’s restaurant, Jane Q uses fresh organic ingredients from the Hollywood Farmers Market, so you can indulge your taste for healthy California cuisine any time of day.
But you’re dying to experience dinner at that fabled, wood-paneled Hollywood institution Musso & Frank Grill. As you sip a Martini and tuck into an exquisite steak, you imagine Raymond Chandler penning scenes from The Long Goodbye at the wood paneled bar.
After dinner, you jump in a car—Hollywood proper is a little too chaotic for your refined tastes, but you love the quaint but glamorous scene on Franklin Village, whether it’s breakfast at the Beachwood Cafe in the shadow of the Hollywood Sign, or late night drinks at La Poubelle, whose dim, candlelit interior inspires fascinating conversation among friends.
You’re almost sad when you find yourself invited to a late-night hot tub party up in the Hills; part of you was wishing you were back in your delightful suite at the Kimpton. But duty calls, and you like all the best travelers, you always have your swimwear in your back pocket...
