What: The Westin Bonaventure

Where: Downtown Los Angeles

For: All Ages/Nightlife for Adults

Our stay at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites was a great part of our March staycation.  It’s right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, and this swanky hotel offers everything you need for a night out without even stepping foot outside.

The Hotel

The Westin Bonaventure is a recognizable hotel directly off the freeway sporting three tall towers interconnected by bridges.  After parking in valet of this extravagant hotel, you are led down a hall with movie posters of films that were filmed in and around the hotel. The three towers of hotel rooms with corresponding colors and glass elevators.  Amenities include a fitness room, business center, pool deck, and pet friendly hotel.  There is a full-service bar in the center of the lobby along with a lobby bistro that transforms into a bar/club at night by the entrance and LA Prime Steakhouse on the 35th floor.

The Room

Rooms are beautiful, with floor to ceiling windows and great views of the cities.  We had trouble finding an ice machine because of the layout of the hotel.  Room service options are available albeit pricey.  The beds, pillows and bedding are like sleeping on a cloud. Décor is modern, and you’re provided with an in room safe and mini fridge.

The Revolving Bonavista Lounge

I was so excited to try this lounge on the 34th floor before our night out.  We had two cocktails and sat at a two-person table with floor-to-ceiling windows.  The lounge offers a small variety of appetizers, entrees and desserts.  Rotations are about five degrees per minute, with a full rotation taking a little over an hour.

The Crowd

I only saw adults the entire time we were here.  The vibe of the hotel is expensive, elegant and classy.  Patrons take care to dress up when they are at the different bars and hotels here.

Cost

This was one of the more expensive hotels we stayed at.  A one-night stay was $207 with parking at $49/night and no self-park options.  The Bonavista Lounge food options range from $16 to $25 per person, with cocktails averaging $18.  We ended up leaving the Westin Bonaventure about $300 out of pocket.
