LA LA Luxury in La la Land

Amy Bryant

Stroll down Sunset Boulevard, hike to the Hollywood sign, stand with the stars and sample the joy of jazz music so that you can truly immerse yourself in all things La La Land.

La La Land has won a record seven Golden Globes last night. If you are itching to see La La Land in real life like we do, Booking.com has brought you the inside scoop of all the glitz and glam of Hollywood.

The Redbury @ Hollywood and Vine, Hollywood Walk of Fame

Designed with Hollywood decadence in mind, channel your inner movie star with a stay at The Redbury @ Hollywood and Vine.  Think boutique suites, cocktails and good music.  You’ll feel a million dollars in your room with a balcony and a flat-screen TV – you can even have breakfast in bed.  Just a short stroll away is the Hollywood Walk of Fame where you can grace the same streets as your favourite celebrities.

 

Hotel Amarano Burbank, Warner Bros Studios

Warner Bros Studios is one of the most famous studios in Los Angeles.  To feel like a true movie star, select the deluxe tour option and see what it takes to make a film come to life.  You’ll be stepping in the shoes of Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone themselves as scenes from La La Land were filmed in these studios.  Only a fifteen minute walk away is the Hotel Amarano Burbank.  Sample a variety of cocktails or take a dip in the hot tub before relaxing in your luxurious, spacious bedroom after a day on your feet touring the studios.

 

Hollywood Sky Loft, Catalina Bar & Grill

Ryan Gosling plays one of the main characters in La La Land, Sebastian, who is a struggling jazz musician.  To experience Los Angeles at its best, make sure you take a trip to one of its many incredible Jazz bars.  The Catalina Bar & Grill is an intimate, cosy venue that draws jazz lovers from near and far.  After letting the music go to your head, stroll back to the Hollywood Sky Loft and relax in your large, private loft with all the comforts of your own home, plus a few extras like a hot tub, outdoor pool, fitness centre and balcony.

 

Mama Shelter, Griffith Park

From Mama Shelter, it’s just a short cruise down Sunset Boulevard to Griffith Park, one of the country’s largest urban parks. The main characters, Sebastian and Mia, perform what has been described as ‘their pivotal dance number’ here, so if you’re excited about the film release, this is the place to go.  Mama Shelter offers quirky yet cosy accommodation in the heart of Hollywood and features a rooftop terrace with breath-taking views of the Hollywood Hills.

 

LEVEL Furnished Living Suites, Grand Central Market

unnamed-9 unnamed-8

The popularity of street food and market stalls has taken the nation by storm and it is no different across the pond.  The Grand Central Market in Los Angeles has been around for nearly 100 years and continues to serve the very best street food you can find in Los Angeles.  Even fictional characters have taken their turn here with Mia and Sebastian enjoying a street-side nibble in the movie.  A short walk away is the LEVEL Furnished Living Suites offering self-catered accommodation with access to a fitness suite, basketball court and swimming pool so you can stay as fit as the stars themselves.’
