Hotel Bel-Air, Los Angeles, USA
The Bel-Air is one of those few legendary hotels with a long history of Hollywood glamour. Tucked away among the hills of the exclusive Bel Air neighbourhood, with a more private and reserved ambience than say 'see and be seen' sister Hotel Beverly Hills, it remains a go-to property for A-listers in the film industry. Nestled within a 12-acre tropical garden with a swan lake and winding pathways, the 103 smart rooms and suites blend Spanish Colonial and French Deco influences. The Wolfgang Puck Restaurant offers Californian cuisine, while The Bar is a cosy spot for an expertly-mixed cocktail. There's an acclaimed pool, spa and fitness centre too.
The location is special: this may be an LA hotel, but the large grounds and seclusion make you feel like you're away from the busy traffic and city.
The hotel is tucked away in the exclusive Bel Air neighbourbood, a residential area to the west of LA in the foothills of the Santa Monica mountains.
By plane: flights to Los Angeles from London take 11 hours. The hotel is a 35-minute drive from LAX airport. Parking costs $55 per day. skyscanner.net
