Pendry Hotel Bar
The Pendry West Hollywood

Let’s face it: Finding the perfect hotel for your next vacation is easier said than done. Of course, between excellent outdoor access and the treasure trove of tourist destinations, the stakes feel even higher when traveling to the West Coast. Knowledge is power, and factors like price, location, reviews, and amenities should certainly come into consideration when booking a stay. However, those who are swayed by aesthetics might favor hotels that tick off all of the hospitality boxes—and look good doing so. 

Still, with so many examples of “West Coast cool,” there’s no shortage of on-point (and photogenic!) accommodations. To help narrow your search, six interior designers shared their top picks for haute hotels. From A-list accommodations dreamed up by top decorators to smaller digs that create a “wow” factor in wine country, one thing’s for sure: These properties are so pretty that you’ll never want to check out.
