The Virgin Holidays + Hip Hotels are more than a bit special in California with hotels that have more Hollywood fans than you can shake a stick at, and eco sanctuaries nestled upon stunning cliff sides.
With Vhip hotels there’s no better way to experience the blend of old school glamour and new age therapy that California serves so well.
The legend that is Chateau Marmont that once hosted the likes of Grace Kelly and Humphrey Bogart is a piece of social history that Vhip hotel guests can be a part of. Located on Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood, the Chateau Marmont is where Jim Morrison injured his back after taking a failed leap of faith from the hotel’s roof to his bedroom window. Decorated in a vintage forties style this fascinating hotel even feels like you’ve stumbled upon a film set.
If celebrity haunts don’t tickle your fancy the Post Ranch Inn offers the polar opposite in the form of seclusion on the heavenly Pacific Coast. The extraordinary architecture not only merges seamlessly with the cliffs they lie on, but also allows guests breathtaking vistas from the inside. Nearby attractions include the Point Lobos State Reserve where you can glimpse sightings of migrating grey whales from December to May, the arts community towns of Monterey and Carmel and of course the many trails of the Big Sur.
If it’s modern Los Angeles style that ticks all the boxes then there isn’t much that can top the Viceroy Santa Monica. This Vhip boutique hotel is a modern and luxurious retreat for sophisticated travellers who want the very best. Along with plush rooms the Viceroy Santa Monica has a glamourous pool area with exclusive cabanas where those in the know host parties and meetings. Be sure to plan ahead as this sleek beach side hotel is one of the most sought after reservations in Santa Monica.
