Hotel of the week: The Crescent, Los Angeles

How to follow a fabulous Portuguese farmhouse, a cosy Norfolk cottage and a trad Thamesside inn? Why, with another equally stunning boutique property, of course. This week, our fickle fancies turn to…the_crescent_hotel

The Crescent, Los Angeles

Setting Rarified Rodeo Drive environs

Why this week? Venice Beach is calling, the chic boutiques of Rodeo Drive are summer-quiet and the incredible variety of cuisine at LA’s stellar eateries (Koi, Lucques, Spago) is yours for the savouring.

Our favourite bits Book a Brighton Street-facing room and let the sunshine show off ththe_crescent_boee light-loving shades-of-white decor, textured fabrics and sleek furniture in all their pristine glory. Laze on a sofa over cups of tea on the tree-shaded patio (above). Lounge over nattily named cocktails (try a ‘Seven Wet Pom-Poms’) in the lobby bar. Linger over angel hair with clams or flatiron steak under the stars – elbow to elbow with the A-list – at the hotel restaurant, BoĆ© (left).

Mr & Mrs Smith say ‘The Crescent must have been a sensational house. Formerly the kind of establishment known for its hourly bookings, it’s now a small style hotel, a far cry from its former bad self, tucked away in the heart of the_crescent_bedBeverly Hills. A honeyed stucco facade conceals minimal-chic interiors by designer Dodd Mitchell, the man behind Hollywood’s hippest playgrounds, and the restaurant is a star attraction, drawing in Mena Suvari, Liz Hurley, Courtney Cox et al.’
