Hollywood’s newest boutique hotel is the Godfrey Hotel Hollywood – with a gorgeous rooftop to prove it
Hollywood recently welcomed the Godfrey Hotel Hollywood, a new luxury hotel located in the heart of the city’s most historic and symbolic neighborhoods.
“The Godfrey Hotel’s high-energy restaurant, nightlife and event venues, carefully curated rooms and artwork will be a complementary addition to the neighborhood,” says Clay Andrews, vice president of operations, West Coast and General Manager of the Godfrey Hotel Hollywood at Oxford Hotels. “It will provide a new cultural hotspot for locals and travelers. “
Still excited for a new hot spot, we headed to what may soon become Hollywood’s best hotel and were blown away by the glamorous, almost retro-chic vibe that invades you from the moment you walk in. A haven for artists and creative visionaries, the intoxicating vibe of the carefully crafted aesthetic of the Gettys Group (known for their work at the Bellagio, Wayfarer DTLA, and Chinese resort Visun Villas, to name a few – some).
Los Angeles-based Kevin Barry Art Advisory curated and supplied Godfrey’s extensive art collection, which adorns both the hotel’s interiors and exteriors. Exhibits include the one-of-a-kind “I Love You” sculpture beckoning you at the hotel entrance and a life-size bronze “Dress and Tuxedo” sculpture that evokes an appreciation of the Old Hollywood style of its neighborhood. Our personal favorite piece – a seven piece sculpture that come together to form a heavenly set of hand-pigmented gold wings.
Marvel at the dichroic glass casting rainbow shadows across the room as you make your way to IO ROOFTOP atop the Godfrey Hotel Hollywood. Recently named ‘the hottest ticket in town’ and one of the best rooftop bars in Los Angeles, this is a stop you need to put at the top of your pronto list.
As Hollywood’s biggest rooftop, patrons can not only enjoy handcrafted cocktails prepared by expert mixologists in one of the two bars, but also a 70-foot projection-mapping screen for movie screenings and concerts. art exhibits, sexy secluded lounges and a sparkling swimming pool which we are almost positive emits a siren song as it invites you to relax in its waters.
With a rotating schedule of DJs and comedy shows, as well as sushi served from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., we couldn’t be happier living in sunny SoCal, where outdoor spaces like this can. be enjoyed all year round.
Once you’ve worked up an appetite at the city’s best rooftop bar, head to About Last Knife, The Godfrey’s SoCal signature dining experience, courtesy of talented chef Steven Blackburn. Chef Steven offers an enhanced menu that features a substantial presentation of plant-based options that stand out, appealing not only to vegetarians and vegans, but also the health-conscious to Los Angeles. Along with a phenomenal food menu, their curated bar program features seasonal cocktails, local craft beers, and local whiskeys.
One of the many things we love about the best hotel in Hollywood is that there is something for all preference levels.
