The James, a set of luxurious hotels currently in Miami, Chicago and New York, is coming to Los Angeles. The new hotel is set to open in 2016, which would make it the first hotel built ground-up in West Hollywood in about thirty years. The James hotels are known for their modern, sophisticated aesthetic and their great locations, and their Los Angeles outing is set to be just as beautiful.
It will be located on the corner of Sunset and La Cienega Boulevards, and promises to have 286 rooms, 10,000 square feet of meeting space, two restaurants, and two bars, including a rooftop bar. The hotel is being developed by the CIM group, who are also building two residential towers on La Cienega Boulevard. The James hotels are stylish but comfortable, like an impossibly well-decorated home away from home. They manage to incorporate a signature style while developing some quirks influenced by their locale, such as The James Chicago's Bacon Bar or The James New York's wine and cheese hour. This new spot promises to be a handsome addition to West Hollywood, refined and worldly but invested in the neighborhood it calls home.
