As much as I love 5-star luxurious hotels, there is always something oh so special about a stay at a boutique hotel. When I planned my work trip to LA, I knew I wanted to plan in some off time for myself, so when I came across Plaza La Reina it was obvious to me where I wanted to unwind for a couple of days. Plaza La Reina is very different from anything you would expect right in the middle of Los Angeles. It is uniquely designed for discerning guests who want something more personal than the typical hotel experience. It presents itself in the heart of Westwood village, close to Beverly Hills & Santa Monica – with walking distance to numerous cafes, restaurants, grocery stores and shopping.
I stayed for 3 days and 2 nights, and from the minute of my arrival to the time I checked out of the Hotel, the staff was absolutely incredible. Beyond welcoming and helpful. Respecting your space while quietly fulfilling your every need… is exactly my style. Extraordinary.
My jr suite I stayed in had a sophisticated quality, yet cozy feel and offered everything I needed, and much more. A queen size bed (which was heavenly comfortable), two balconies, hardwood floors, a beautiful tiled modern bathroom, a fully equipped kitchenette, my own in-unit washer & dryer, a personal safe, 24h concierge service, and complimentary Wi-Fi. A real home away from home!
The bathroom is pretty much described in 2 words – clean and sleek. The shower was a real treat, and while I usually always bring my own shampoos & lotions because I don’t get along with the ones they provide at hotels, Plaza La Reina offered a wonderful selection of the finest Etro products, which are nicely scented and great quality. So as you can imagine, I simply couldn’t wait to get some food for the night to finally hop into that shower and put on that super comfy bathrobe, cuddle up in my gigantic queen size bed to finally unwind over some pasta & a glass of vino, while watching pretty women on the big flat screen in my suite. Most relaxing night I had in a looooong time.
On top of the 6th. floor of the hotel is a rooftop deck with an absolutely gorgeous view, overlooking Westwood Village. I mostly came up here super early in the morning, and enjoyed a breathtaking sunrise while sipping on my coffee. What a wonderful way to start into the day, right?! There is no pool area in the entire building, but honestly, there is no need for that. On the contrary, that’s probably one of the reasons why this place is so peaceful and quite – I enjoyed complete silence in the morning and during the day very much.
What I loved the absolute most was the very cute mediterranean charm, which makes this place so outstanding and very special. The atmosphere in the entire hotel was serene and calm, almost zen-like. The silence and quiet time I got to enjoy during my stay was absolutely amazing. I even felt like I had the entire building for myself at times, which is something that I appreciate a lot, especially in a quite hectic city like Los Angeles.
All in all I, experienced a wonderful stay at Plaza La Reina. I would return anytime, and I would recommend this very charming and unique place to anybody who wants to unwind in a wonderful, relaxing atmosphere while you’re in the heart of Los Angeles.
