The Top 5 Hippest Hotels in L.A.

There were lots of different opinions to consider when putting this list together. Like, why pick LA? Well, first off, for the sheer number of visitors, Los Angeles consistently ranks in the top 5 travel destinations in the U.S., year after year.

Secondly, we here at CouponPal are in the business of providing info that helps you make smart shopping decisions, whether it be choosing a new computer, or a place to stay. We did your homework for you and after scouring many, many travel and review sites, these 5 appeared on the most lists – hence their inclusion in “Best of The Best.”

Third of all, we’re based in LA, so many of us have either stayed at these hotels, have friends who’ve stayed there, or driven past them and gone, “Hey, that place looks cool.” Put all of those together and it spells “First-hand knowledge.”

So, here they are, along with some reasons why they seem to be the consensus favorites of hipsters everywhere.

NOTE: You do not have to be a hipster to be a guest at these fine establishments. Also be aware that while to some, “Hipster” has become a less-than-complimentary term, they are human and they need to be loved, just like everybody else does.
