Dating back to 1925, the Figueroa Hotel is a legendary celebrity favorite and a stone's throw from L.A. Live, Nokia Theatre and the Staples Center, downtown LA's main entertainment hubs.
Originally opened as a YWCA, the 12-story Spanish Colonial building was transformed into a hotel after the Depression. Known around town as "The Fig," the hotel features a posh bar and pool area frequented by both hotel guests and in-the-know locals.
Travel + Leisure praises the hotel's "otherworldly interior" that features hand-carved furnishings, tapestries and exotic plants. The guest rooms keep the Mexico-meets-Morocco theme intact, and Gayot recommends splurging on one of the suites, named and decorated after various North African cities.
L.A. was ranked as the No. 5 destination in The New York Times' list of "52 Places to Go in 2014" due to the city's prospering food scene. Hit up the hot spots like Grand Central Market and Alma -- named the best new restaurant in the country by Bon Appetit magazine -- from the front doors of The Fig.
