A Multimillion-Dollar Revamp Brings Movie Star Style to the Chamberlain West Hollywood

The Chamberlain West Hollywood has long been an L.A. insiders’ favorite stopover, but it’s set to attract a wider audience of trendsetters in the wake of a multimillion-dollar revamp. The all-suite retreat is discreetly located on a quiet tree-lined street off of Sunset Boulevard and feels much like a private apartment building, refreshingly free of the noise and bustle of the bigger hotels on the main drag.

The recent property-wide re-imagination encompassed redesigned suites, lobby and meeting spaces along with a new rooftop pool deck and restaurant concept. The refreshed interiors are a nod to old Hollywood glamour as well as the fashionable crowd who have long used the sophisticated hotel as their Tinseltown pied-a-terre. Designed by Jackie McGee of Perkins+Will, the Chamberlain West Hollywood’s new lobby and suites feature an elegant palette of black and white set off by origin works of art and contemporary furniture.

Each of the 115 spacious suites features dedicated living spaces, cozy gas log fireplaces and luxurious amenities such as marble baths and 42-inch HD televisions, and most also offer private balconies. They range in size from 350-650 square feet and average over 500 square feet, adding to the private apartment feel, and are equally well suited to extended stays and short visits. The hotel’s new guests-only restaurant and bar, Fits, serves New American cuisine from Executive Chef Henry Tapia in a stylish setting that carries on the intimate Hollywood hideout vibe.

The private garden patio ringed by tall hedges is the favorite sipping and sampling spot for industry types and their glamorous guests. The restaurant's cocktail program is inspired by the movers and shakers of West Hollywood, using fresh ingredients and creative mixology. Try the Fashionista, made with tequila, pink guava, orange liquor, lime juice and simple syrup, and The Hideout, a mix of vodka, kiwi, basil, lemon juice, ginger syrup. If you do spot a celebrity, be discreet and don’t ask for an autograph. Standout dishes include the Grilled Romaine Salad with gorgonzola dressing, grilled corn, tomato, radish and red onion; Pastor Chicken Tacos with avocado mash, pineapple salsa, radish, cilantro, and yellow corn tortilla; and the Grilled Octopus with ginger-lime and soy sauce marinade, butternut squash puree, caramelized onion, potatoes and kale.

The rooftop pool is another favorite place to pitch thanks to its terrace offering 360-degree views of West Hollywood and some of the area’s most celebrated attractions, including the Pacific Design Center, the Sunset Strip, Rodeo Drive, West Hollywood Design District, The Grove and the Beverly Center, all of which are a short distance from the hotel. The Chamberlain was recognized in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards while the London Telegraph dubbed it one of the best boutique hotels in Los Angeles."Our goal is to offer guests an experience of West Hollywood while providing the best service possible,” notes General Manager John Douponce, “and we believe our newly revitalized hotel is a reflection of our stylish and sophisticated community.”
