Bamboo Retreats, Los Angeles

Don’t mistake Bamboo Retreats for a hotel. An “anti-hotel” is more what the owners—one a screenwriter, the other an interior designer—had in mind when they opened the peaceful Hollywood Hills hideout a few years ago. Don’t look for a sign, or for that matter a lobby or a bellhop angling for a tip. Instead, you’ll be greeted and ushered right to your door so your vacation can begin immediately. The minimalist Japanese-inspired studios and suites are spare but luxurious, with big views and miniature kitchens—in case you just don’t feel like going out. $$$; 3-night minimum;
