Los Angeles

Sun soaked boulevards, dreamy beaches and celebrities galore: Los Angeles is possibly one of the most glamorous places on the planet. Get goosebumps when you spot that sign on the hillside and stroll along the Walk of Fame.

Gaze longingly at the extravagant mansions of Beverly Hills and look out for the rich and famous on Rodeo Drive. Excellent shopping, delicious cuisine and dramatic Pacific coastline all add up to L.A.'s amazing holiday credentials. As well as the star studded attractions of Tinseltown, there's an offbeat side to the city, where you can hunt down edgy art galleries and hip live music venues. Head out of town for brilliant theme parks and discount shopping malls.

We love L.A. for its endless list of things to do and unique vibe - and we think you'll know what we mean from the moment you arrive. We've chosen a selection of gorgeous hotels to make your trip to L.A. even more amazing.
