So whether you’re flying across the country for a much-needed vacation or booking a room for a weekend getaway, you’re in for a treat. From the iconic Fairmont Century Plaza, which recently underwent a $2.5 billion redevelopment, to Pendry West Hollywood (Martin Brudnizki’s latest masterpiece), these chic lodgings are making Tinseltown shine even brighter.
The latest property in Pendry’s portfolio (and the first in Los Angeles), the Martin Brudnizki–designed Pendry West Hollywood, which opens for business (and pleasure) on April 2, boasts 149 stylish guest rooms inspired by ocean waves and dusky skies and 40 residences with intoxicating views of the Hollywood hills. “When I think of Los Angeles, I think of color. There aren’t many cities that offer such a vivid and iconic palette,” Brudnizki notes. Equally as important as the palette, the shapes—not just in the furniture but also on the walls—make a big impact. Brudnizki explains, “West Hollywood has a sense of style that is as much about comfort as it is glamour, and so the interiors had to feel soft and tactile while at the same time a little decadent. To juxtapose with the soft lines, we used a few geometrics in the wall treatments, upholstery, and floors, which give the interiors a certain energy and dynamism.” With a goal of introducing Hollywood glamour to contemporary comfort, Brudnizki has outdone himself.
The hotel isn’t the only new outpost in the building: Legendary chef Wolfgang Puck’s latest eateries Merois and Ospero also occupy the space. The former’s menu has an undeniable Japanese, Southeast Asian, and French flair—with a hint of California flavor—while the latter feels a bit more like a casual European-style cafe. Whether you’re noshing on a crispy-scale whole black sea bass at Merois or biting into a house-made pizza at Ospero, you’ll be ready for a post-dinner disco nap in your sizable space.
