What is the L.A. Sky Boutique Hotel?
We were stalking hotel booking sites yesterday, trying to find you some good hotel deals, when we stumbled upon this Expedia listing for a hotel in Los Angeles called, LA Sky Boutique Hotel. Whatever could this be?
As it turns out, it's the same Sky Hotel that we wrote about back in 2007. (Yup, we've been doing this job too long.) As it turns out the hotel is in the process of changing its name from Sky Hotel to LA Sky Boutique Hotel.
Located in the heart of West Los Angeles on Westwood Boulevard near Pico, close to UCLA, the freeway and the Westside Pavilion mall, the hotel has just 28 rooms, done up in a stylish furniture with sky-inspired colors (lots of blues and light colors). We found rates for this weekend, Memorial Day Weekend, for just $149 for a queen bed guestroom. King beds are just $159. Those rates include breakfast and free WiFi.
However, the hotel's TripAdvisor reviews haven't improved much over the past five years, with most guests complaining about the noise from the street. Other guests liked the decor but still called it a remodeled motel (which is pretty much true.)
Then again $150 a night in Los Angeles for semi-stylish accommodations is not bad, especially on a holiday weekend. Put it on the Maybe list.
