Andaz West Hollywood, Los Angeles, USA
As well as being located right in the centre of the action of the lively nightlife of West Hollywood, near popular attractions such as Universal Studios, the Hollywood Walk of Fame and shops on Rodeo Drive, The Andaz has an exceptional history. Opened by Gene Autry in 1963, many rock stars have stayed here, including Elton John, Blur, Motorhead and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Led Zeppelin would routinely rent several floors and their drummer John Bonham reportedly rode a motorcycle along the hallways. Jim Morrison and Little Richard lived here. Today, it offers sleek, comfortable rooms, a good restaurant and bar, and a fitness centre, and artworks are all around to remind guests of its fascinating past.
We love the great stand-up at the legendary Comedy Store right next door. Everyone from Robin Williams to Jerry Seinfeld has played there.
The hotel is on the Sunset Strip at the foot of the Hollywood Hills.
By plane: flights to Los Angeles from London take 11 hours. The hotel is a 25-minute drive from LAX airport. On-site parking costs $55 per day. skyscanner.net

Food & Drink
The music in the restaurant is interesting and completely fitting for the hotel's history; maybe a bit of Lou Reed or some new indie recording, but never bland commercial stuff. The blueberry French toast with vanilla bean mascarpone, macerated blueberry and toasted coconut is divine; the flavour floods out from the fresh, juicy blueberries.
