Downtown Delight

Conrad Los Angeles delivers a one-of-a-kind culture- and wellness-infused experience for out-of-towners and locals alike.

In July, the Conrad Los Angeles made its debut as the first California property from Conrad Hotels & Resorts, anchored within the new Frank Gehry–designed The Grand LA complex.

The hotel’s 305 suites by Tara Bernerd & Partners evoke a midcentury modernist home, featuring a mix of wide-planked pale-oak floors and natural linen walls. For a splurge, book the “Grand Avenue” that’s designed to feel like your own private apartment—the 1,633-square-foot luxe suite sits high atop the 24th floor, offering sweeping city views.

There’s no shortage of onsite culinary options, which include two signature restaurants from Michelin-starred chef José Andrés: San Laurel and Agua Viva. For the ultimate pampering and restorative retreat, embrace a slower pace at Conrad Spa Los Angeles, a 7,000-square-foot space complete with seven treatment rooms, a curated wellness bar featuring body care and recovery products, an enlightenment lounge, infrared sauna, Gharieni Welnamis wavetable, and private recovery cabins. Explore the spa’s menu through a variety of hyper-personalized, ayurvedic, and innovative treatments paired with cult-beauty lines like Angela Caglia, Codage, and Augustinus Bader.
