Rooftop cabanas, SLS Hotel, Los Angeles
Simply Lovely Spaces. Sam loves Starck. Some Light Showers. For me, a late-January weekend at SLS Hotel in Los Angeles meant a seriously sexy sleepover. And Sophie Loves Sleepovers.
Service Luxury Style was the thought of nightclub kingpin-turned-hotelier Sam Nazarian, but the copywriters took it and ran… Now, the aphorisms decorate key cards, note paper, and all sorts of silly little somethings at this Philippe Starck-designed property, the first of a portfolio. Some little secrets ahead…
Starck Schmark, you say, but the restaurant concept, The Bazaar, shined and the lobby and room designs were provocative and entertaining for three perfect LA nights, if a little much for three bleary-eyed mornings. (Honestly, enough smoked mirrors already. Some of us prize modesty.)
A little touch I loved: room service breakfast (delivered in 15 minutes flat) included a cloth basket of toast with hot stones (spa leftovers?) to keep the bread piping warm.
Super lovely service!
