Hotel Per La

Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles
Hotel Per La represents Los Angeles at its finest, the intersection of history, art, diversity, and the present. The classic historical bones of the hotel have been respectfully and lovingly restored. The original building built in 1922 was once the Bank of Italy, located in the Giannini building in downtown Los Angeles on 7th and Hill. The ornate architecture was birthed in the neoclassical style. Today, the towering columns, marble floor, and exquisite gold ornate ceiling reflect the vintage reminders of the history of Los Angeles. The space has been updated and transformed to marry both the history of the building and a modern interpretation of style and comfort. When you walk into the hotel, you are surrounded by a stunning mirrored entry that leads you into the lobby and expansive restaurant space, formerly the bank's lobby. Sunlight floods the botanical room, giving you a light and airy feeling. The hotel showcases vintage art pieces from Italy and California and modern art, displaying an intentional respect for the past that can coexist with the present. The 241 rooms and suites also reflect vintage touches with all the modern conveniences. Other unique features of the hotel are the game room area where you can leisurely enjoy a board game, a beautiful restaurant and bar open for dinner, and a rooftop bar serving food and drink with stunning views of Los Angeles. One of my favorite places to meet someone for coffee or tea is the stylish Cafe Ora, connected to the hotel, which has mirror elements and red chandeliers. The hotel offers a special price during the Holidays, where you can stay for $199 with a $30 bar credit until the end of the year. If you love vintage architecture and a unique experience from the standard hotel, consider staying at Hotel Per La.

  • One of my favorite details of this hotel is the old-fashioned bank vault with the safety deposit boxes near the restrooms on the lower floor! It reminds me that sometimes the best discoveries are hidden and just below the surface!
