Best Under The Radar Hotels In Los Angeles

Jan03

When most people come to Los Angeles, they end up booking a hotel in some noisy section of Hollywood , in a neighborhood without access to quick public transportation or even worse, miles away from the sights they want to see in L.A. Booking a hotel in Los Angeles can be tricky if you aren’t familiar with its sprawling neighborhoods, but once you know you’re way around this town, you can find some of the most comfortable, hip, and chic places to rest your head. So, Reviewer Card is giving you the best hotels that in general, fly under the tourist radar.

1. Shade (in Manhattan Beach)

Shade is a newish addition to this quiet coastal enclave known for stunning beach front property, a quaint fishing pier and Main Street, and plenty of California’s famed surf spots lining the coast. Tucked in at Shade, you’ll have access to some of the most coveted views and nightlife spots in southern California. At night, visit the Shade’s very own Zinc bar for drinks with locals and westside Angelenos. Website

2. Farmer’s Daughter

Located across the street from CBS studios, The Grove and Farmer’s Market, and geographically located near L.A.’s 3rd Street eateries, Farmer’s Daughter is one of those hotels that suits basic needs and at a low cost. Despite the lack of bells and whistles, Farmer’s Daughter is still pretty chic and has quirky hotel rooms — think along the lines of the Ace Hotel. Added bonus? You can easily line-up outside of CBS studios for a taping of The Price is Right. Website

3. Villa Delle Stelle

Can’t stand to stay in the middle of Hollywood, but still crave the luxury of the golden age of Hollywood? Then stay at Villa Delle Stelle, a converted mansion that used to be owned by Dudley Moore’s wife. This boutique hotel caters to Suite and Bungalow vacationers — inside  which you’ll even find kitchens and dining tables. Have an extended stay in Los Angeles and don’t want to give up the comforts of home and want to be treated like a 50′s Hollywood celebrity? Then stay at Villa Delle Stelle. Website

4. Mr. C’s

Located on the outer edges of Beverly Hills, Mr. C’s is luxury hotel outfitted in fine Italian leather, mid-century touches, and some of the best customer service you’ll find in LA. With the addition of  mod hotel pool, a divine cocktail bar complete with all the mixologist fixings, and an Italian fine-dining restaurant — you may never have to leave the premises.

5. Shangri-LA

After a 30 million dollar renovation, the once shabby around the edges, art deco-inspired hotel is back and in the same column as its luxury counterparts. Located in the heart of Santa Monica’s oceanside walk and shopping district, the Shangri-La is your beach destination while staying in Los Angeles. Website

Wishing You Wonderful Experiences This Year!

Jan01

The ReviewerCard team wishes you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.  We’d also like to wish you a year filled with extraordinary experiences around the world.  Whether you’re traveling to new places in your current city or venturing far overseas, may you have incredible encounters on your journey.

We hope that more businesses strive to provide the best possible consumer-friendly service as well.  An interesting story from LA Times writer David Lazarus talks about just this.  Feel free to read here.

Keep us posted of your adventures around the world and remember to nominate your Top Choices as well.

Reviewer Card Top Place: Le Bouquinistes In Paris, France

Nov26

The Seine River meanders through the city of lights like a gentle serpent, observing the goings-on of Parisians for centuries now. Criss-crossed by almost 30 extravagant and mundane bridges, these crossing points flourish with Parisian day-to-day life. The banks of the Seine River serve as homes to strolling residents, artisans selling crafts, master crepe makers, and booksellers — called “bouquinistes” in French.

These keepers of the beauty that is the written word, bound in antique leather or worn paperback, serve as the inspiration behind the restaurant Le Bouquiniste, located along Saint Germain des Pres, just a stones throw away from the Pont Neuf and Notre Dame. Not only does Le Bouquinistes serves ‘plats’ and ‘entrees’ foodies well-versed in gastronomique will cherish (see their suckling pig confit with salsify and mashed potatoes), but the service and overall experience you’ll receive at this Latin Quarter restaurant has ensured its place in the Reviewer Card Top Place.

Just as “le bouquinistes” of the Seine protect French literary culture in their little fold-up shops, Guy Savoy of Le Bouquinistes is protecting the culinary prowess of France — one satisfied customer at a time.

Winter Retreat: Joshua Tree and Desert Hot Springs

Nov14

Winter is normally associated with the onset of gaudy holiday decoration, heaps of white snow, and plenty of warm drinks. This rendition of winter may be enjoyable to some, but to others, warmer climates are sought during the winter months — the Caribbean mostly.

However, the south eastern edge of California is quickly becoming a destination for sun worshippers, art enthusiasts, and seasoned travellers looking to escape shovelling snow for weeks on end. Joshua Tree, Palm Springs, and Desert Hot Springs are the places to visit in California’s desert region when you just can’t bear to look at your winter coat any longer.

In addition to favorable weather, there is plenty of natural beauty, particularly in the Joshua Tree National Park. The curling cacti look like something out of a Dr. Seuss book and the night skies are illuminated and star-pocked, something city-dwellers don’t see often due to light pollution. Once you’ve spent some time in the Joshua Tree, wander into the many cultural points of interest in the surrounding cities.

Pioneertown is a outpost that still hangs onto it’s “old west” roots. Check in at Pappy and Harriets for a live Folk/Americana show. Or, visit Desert Hot Springs and its plethora of warm mineral baths  at various hotels and spas. Palm Springs is full of rich architectural history from the mid-century era and showcases some of the best modern hotels and residences to languish in until winter ceases, like the Riviera Palm Springs:

Do you have any favorite hot spots for winter travel? If so, tell us about your ideal vacation away from the cold.
