Petit Ermitage, West Hollywood

28 June 2017

Words: Andrew Nagy / Image: Petit Ermitage

A bohemian hideaway in West Hollywood, Petit Ermitage is not your average five-star hotel in the city. Whether it’s the creeping vines that adorn the entrance, the poem that’s placed on your pillow before bed or the rooftop garden – a hummingbird and butterfly sanctuary recognised by the National Wildlife Federation – where you’ll take breakfast, this boutique property is part theatre, part hotel.

The suites are filled with warm colours, a comfy bed, a fireplace and old tin toys that line the mantelpiece but this place is really all about the rooftop. Whether you’re checking out the view or taking a dip in the saltwater pool, it’s a great place to spend the day. Grab yourself a sunlounger, order a glass of something cold and crisp from Napa Valley and you’re set. As evening falls, head to the garden for dinner – you have to try the squid ink linguine – and take in the 360-degree views by night. If there’s a better spot in the city, we’ve yet to find it.
