The Hyatt Regency Century Plaza hotel is newly renovated with some parts of the renovations still in the finishing stages.

If you want to stay in an historic landmark, the Culver Hotel is the place. The rooms are named after such stars as Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, Katherine Hepburn and John Wayne. John Wayne once owned the Culver and the room that was his features a round bed. Tim Robbins is a frequent unannounced guest, so don't be surprised to get a glimpse of him. The restaurant, Munchkins, gets its name from the over boisterous parties thrown in the Culver by the Munchkin actors from the Wizard of Oz. Though due for renovations, the signs of wear and tear that are currently throughout the hotel actually add to the charm and feel of history of the Culver.

As the place where Shirley Temple got tap dance lessons on the staircase from Bill 'Bojangles' Robinson, the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel is teeming with history. Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, who were both silent movie stars, were among the original owners. The Hollywood Roosevelt has been renovated to include modern amenities but, as a National Landmark, it retains the historical character it has had through its existence. There are two options for dining here: one is the more casual 25 Degrees, which serves burgers, and a great steakhouse, the Dakota.

The Beverly Hills Hotel, also known as the Pink Palace, is the very same hotel that is featured on the Eagle's album cover 'Hotel California'. It has been graced by the presence of royalty and US presidents. Howard Hughes lived here for about 30 years and this was the place where Clark Gable and Carole Lombard met 'discreetly' prior to his divorce and subsequent marriage to Lombard. This is a very elegant hotel with such amenities as an Olympic-sized pool, two tennis courts, a spa, the Polo Lounge and the Fountain Coffee Shop with its very retro d├ęcor.
