Los Angeles’ West Adams neighborhood has a brand-new design-forward boutique hotel: The 48-key Alsace LA.
Anchored around a lush interior courtyard, the Alsace LA catches eyes with its Bauhaus-inspired curves, white oak ceilings and floors, as well as site-specific art. The property utilizes an eclectic display of vintage-style and custom furnishings. Fluted textures, terracotta plaster, and warm wood materials subtly reference California’s diverse vegetation and natural environment, with an end goal of creating a sense of home that pays homage to Los Angeles.
The lobby exudes refinement. Design lovers will revel at the craftsmanship: the reception desk sculpted with cut white oak, brass, and fluted glass; a hand-painted mural on glazed ceramic tile by local LA artist, Lukas Geronimas Giniotis; plus, a glass pendant and vertical chandelier featuring etched amber glass with brass accents.
Accommodations flaunt deft artisanship at every corner. Here, and of course depending on the room classification, beds are trimmed with rift-cut white oak, handwoven rugs adorn floors, rattan patterns lace chairs, and checkered terracotta plus white porcelain tile foot bathroom floors. Larger suites boast balconies and terraces: Needless to say, the perfect upgrade for those craving an extra dose of Southern California sunshine.
While the hotel will debut a new restaurant concept this winter, they, in the meantime, are partnering with Hi-Lo Liquor Market. The local establishment curates boxes of wine, beer, spirits, and snacks for guests to order on demand to their room.
Amenity-wise, expect a secluded heated pool enveloped in desert plant assemblages, 24-hour state-of-the-art gym, and complimentary bikes—also on the table, travelers can opt to take a tour of the historic West Adams neighborhood with a local expert guide.
