New for 2021, this Martin Brudnizki-designed hotel on the Sunset Strip is nothing short of glamorous. The wow factor is evident from the moment guests enter the black-and-white tiled play area and spot the sparkling Cao Perrot tree made from thousands of Swarovski mother-of-pearl leaves. Inside, an incredible amount of vivid artwork ensures it’s not a dull place, and fun touches abound, like the Moet Chandon Champagne vending machine outside the bar from the lobby.
The ballroom is one of a kind, with striking pale pink chandeliers and a chic California fireplace. For an outdoor celebration, there is an outdoor garden terrace that can accommodate 100 guests at round tables or 120 for a reception. The rooftop, which houses the pool and Wolfgang Puck’s Merois, is another wedding option, with views of the Hollywood Hills. Merois, with its silk-draped ceiling, chandeliers and colorful floor, is a fantastic setting for 107 people, while the rooftop pool bar or pool deck work for a sparkling cocktail. Foodies should note that all dining menus are designed by Wolfgang Puck.
With 149 rooms and suites in a luxurious blue and gold palette and a concert hall, there’s plenty of space for friends and family to gather and play on the weekends. Another event space is Bowling Alley at the Britely Social Club, with two private lanes and ample opportunity for a welcome party. Wedding packages average $225-250 per person, plus rental fees.
