Time has only improved this iconic Hollywood boutique hotel in the heart of LA.

Together with Las Vegas hotel impresario, John Kell Houssels Jr., they decided to build one of the most stunning hotels in North Hollywood , which would serve as an oasis within the high-energy excitement of Los Angeles.
