Short Stories is a new hotel experience located in the center of it all. We’re a short walk to the best shopping, dining, and museums the city has to offer. Drawing inspiration from Los Angeles’s breezy natural aesthetic, our hotel serves as a tranquil retreat in an urban core.

Well appointed and thoughtfully designed, our rooms offer a comfortable place to call your own. Each room features local artwork by Kenton Nelson and custom décor creating unique, unforgettable spaces.
Each of our rooms has been designed to provide you a space that feels like home. Including custom artwork and furniture, every room is outfitted with its own unique appointments.

Short Stories Restaurant serves our take on California cuisine. Inspired by our nearby farmers markets, fresh, seasonal ingredients are sourced to create dishes influenced by the cultural diversity of California by way of the Far East, Latin America and the Mediterranean.

While the restaurant is our most formal dining option, in true LA style, there’s no dress code or fussy requirements. The intimate dining room can fill quickly, reservations are recommended.

Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 9.5 for a two-person trip.

Short Stories Hotel has been welcoming guests since 7 Dec 2011.
