French elegance in Los Angeles…
Bonjour, guys! I haven’t posted here in awhile but I’m back with more hotel guides and going to share Fira’s new favorite dog bowl soon. I’ve been wondering if I should go more review/editorial style writing (especially with hotel reviews and guides) or more personal blog style on the reviews with stories, etc.
So anyways, Weston’s big 9th birthday was over a week ago and we had a big bash at one of our favorite hotels in LA: the SOFITEL.
Not only is it all french-themed (perfect for french bulldogs), there is no pet fee! Love a good hotel that offers no pet fees, because let’s face it: paying almost half the rate of your room just to bring your pet is a major drag.
Back to the birthday…
The Sofitel patio is definitely one of our favorite spots to get the pups together. It’s gorgeous, roomy and extra dog friendly. Did I mention, Fira had her 3rd birthday brunch at the Sofitel last December?
We had a great time celebrating Weston (he’s already 9!!!) and his friends. By the way, the food is decadent and delicious–the lobster tacos are a must! I ordered them twice. Last year, I listed Cattle & Claw as one of our favorite hotel restaurants in LA.
The After Party…
More like, we crashed in our room afterward! We’ve been to the patio, private events inside the bar, the rooftop pool + spa several times but this was our first time staying in a room. Walking down the hallways, you immediately feel like you’re in Paris with its cozy, classical, French decor.
The balcony has a nice Parisian touch, the bed is plush and pups are welcomed with comfy amenities, like a custom bed & bowls. Sofitel also offers doggie menu room service (think hand-cut prime steak + chicken stew).
Rooms are fitted with Lanvin bath products and the hotel amenities include a full-service spa and a huge fitness center. Not to mention, it’s literally across the street from one of the biggest malls in LA, the Beverly Center. You can also walk to a ton of local bars and restaurants. The best part of this hotel is definitely the location!
