Set at the edge of Griffith Park, the famous Hollywood Sign is surrounded by a network of winding mountain trails. A hike through here in the early morning reveals not just unsurpassed views of Los Angeles, but also a quiet moment to reflect on an important piece of the city’s history—though it underwent massive renovations in the late ’70s, the original sign dates back to 1923. Make it an easy visit during your vacation by staying at one of the best hotels in L.A. near the sign.

Who makes the cut? While we might not stay in and review every hotel featured, we’ve based our list on our expert knowledge of the destination covered, editorial reviews, user reviews, hotel amenities and in-depth research to find you the best stays.

For a first-timer to L.A., the thrill of finding yourself surrounded by showbiz landmarks—like the Dolby Theatre and TCL Chinese Theatre, both of which directly connect to the hotel—is hard to deny. Yes, you’re sleeping inside a mall, but even that has its advantages: Ovation Hollywood, the adjacent revamped shopping center, has a walkway underneath its archway that looks straight out to the Hollywood Sign. With a rooftop pool and sun terrace, the 20-floor tower and its fully equipped rooms exude luxury.

Time Out tip: To make the most of L.A.’s beautiful natural surroundings, venture outside of the neighborhood and head to Griffith Park for a stroll along the quiet Fern Dell area or a sunset trip to the Griffith Observatory.
