Luxurious hospitality and enjoyable entertainment options look different to everyone. For this, Los Angeles epitomizes that incentive trip worthy of every preference – starting with its hotel scene.
Frequently appearing on coveted best-of-the-best lists, LA’s Downtown luxury hotels are upscale enough to please the most selective incentive trip-goers and cool enough to impress their company. The ‘dreamy’ is in the details, and these hotels are dripping with it.
One of 2022’s most anticipated hotels, Conrad Los Angeles, is renowned architect and designer Frank Gehry’s newest landmark hotel. Centered among art, theaters and music institutions, Conrad is the first West Coast location from Hilton’s Conrad brand. In true LA fashion, this property is topped with a rooftop terrace and pool; inside, a state-of-the-art spa, and surrounding the hotel is 176,000 square feet of retail and upscale dining space that is a part of the mixed-use development, The Grand LA. A destination within a destination, The Grand spans an entire block and brings fresh urban experiences and energy to the Downtown district.
Formerly the site of the NoMad Hotel, the historic Bank of Italy building in Downtown has been reintroduced as Hotel Per La. The 12-story Italianate lifestyle hotel has 241 custom-furnished guest rooms with touches of curated original artwork, terrazzo floored walk-in showers and pedestal bathtubs. In addition, atop the property sits a rooftop bar open to skyline views that vibe with any occasion.
The 16-story iconic Fairmont Century Plaza – formerly the Century Plaza Hotel and site of a 20th Century Studios backlot – was reinvented in 2021 after a $2.5 billion renovation. With its distinguished Hollywood history and striking modern touches, this 400-room hotel inspires today’s travelers and provides an only-in-LA hospitality experience.
These luxe properties and amenities are just a few reasons Los Angeles is a magnet for incentive trip planners and travelers. The destination entertains some of the most high-profile events in the world, like the ESPYs, BET Awards, the GRAMMYs and the Oscars – imagine including VIP tickets to one of these events in an incentive package.
LA is a playground full of experiences that feel far-flung elsewhere. Visitors can shop Rodeo Drive, see the emblematic Hollywood sign (currently soaking up the spotlight for its 100th anniversary this year), and take a behind-the-scenes tour at the world’s most storied movie studios – like Paramount, Universal and Warner Bros. Anything is possible in Los Angeles.
