Hilton has opened the luxurious new Conrad Los Angeles, marking the first California property for the popular global brand.

Anchored within The Grand LA, Related Companies’ newest destination for shopping, dining, entertainment and a premiere place to live in downtown Los Angeles, the 305-room hotel will immerse guests in the dynamic energy that fuels the city’s cultural corridor.

Designed by legendary architect Frank Gehry with interior design from world-renowned Tara Bernerd and Partners, the contemporary Conrad Los Angeles is home to two original food and beverage concepts from Chef José Andrés and ThinkFoodGroup, the cutting-edge Conrad Spa Los Angeles and unparalleled views and proximity to some of the city’s most prominent cultural venues including Walt Disney Concert Hall.

“We are excited to expand Hilton’s West Coast presence with the debut of the first Conrad Hotels and Resorts property in California, one of our largest growing markets in the U.S,” said Hilton Executive Vice President and President – Americas, Danny Hughes.

“This is a monumental occasion as we open the doors to this incredible property amid downtown Los Angeles’ development boom and we are looking forward to offering guests an unrivalled, luxury hospitality experience in this sought-after destination.”

Stunning guest rooms feature a calming mix of wide-planked pale oak floors and natural linen walls, in-suite dining, an open wardrobe with seat and mirror, an L-shaped sofa, and a personalised mini-bar.

Accommodations range from standard guest rooms to presidential suites, which are designed to feel like the guest’s own personal LA penthouse apartment.

The Grand Avenue Suite is the ultimate expression of luxury, boasting a private terrace with unrivalled views of the city along with a dining room with six-seat dining table, a formal living room with built in bar, a spacious master bedroom with a five-piece bathroom and walk-in wardrobe, all designed by Tara Bernerd & Partners to showcase the elegance of a mid-20th century modernist home.
