Hello Old Hollywood Glamour…
You all know just how much I love a staycation. I recently shared our favorite date night idea (a staycation, of course!) with Chewy — check out the article for 11 date night ideas. Since I can remember, it’s always a thrill to have that key card in hand, open the door and settle into a clean, quiet room.
So, I scanned through some hotel lists and found a local spot I hadn’t heard of before: The Prospect. Located in the charming Whitley Heights neighborhood of Hollywood, I found out it had just opened a few days before! When I saw the lush, jeweled decor, I was instantly hooked and booked (ha ha).
Designed by the acclaimed Martyn Lawrence Bullard, the hotel pays homage to the literal birthplace of Hollywood and its stars, their names printed on each room. C. Grant, J. Dean, G. Garbo and more, every room is designed in its own unique flair with rich details, wall-to-wall wallpaper and sumptuous glamour. There are only 24 rooms which gives this hotel a secluded air with plenty of privacy.
I just love that every room is designed so differently, so it’s like you get your own unique experience.
The hotel is actually a renovated apartment building, so you’ll find yourself in a quiet residential area but just walk down a block and you’ll hit Hollywood Blvd. Speaking of walks, dogs are of course welcome here. $100 per pet. Your pup might enjoy the chic garden in the courtyard of the hotel.
Another perk: all guests get complimentary access to the private co-working space Neuehouse (just five minutes away). Definitely stop in with your laptop and get inspired by this creative social space.
We really enjoyed our stay and the service was so personable — one the perks of staying at a smaller boutique hotel, in my opinion. We will be back!
