Spend Some Cozy Nights at One of L.A.'s Most Romantic Hotels

Los Angeles is famous for its romantic hotels, those special spots where Hollywood romances both real and imaginary have played out. But you don't have to be a movie star to have a spectacular experience in one of the beautiful hotels found all across the L.A. basin, from ocean to mountains to right in the heart of the burgeoning downtown scene. One thing they all have in common is fantastic service; add in incredibly comfortable beds, private patios or balconies and other special elements and you may never want to go back home again. There are secluded sanctuaries like the Hotel Bel Air, nestled in the elegant hills of the city's most exclusive neighborhood; lovely beachfront resorts far from the madding crowd like Terranea in the Palos Verdes peninsula; or high-rise urban oases like the Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles. Whichever wonderful hotel you choose, there's sure to be just the elements that make love blossom, be it champagne and strawberries, a stand-up paddleboarding experience for two or a luxurious couple's spa treatment that will make the rest of the world simply melt away.
