When you enter the Figueroa Hotel, you’ll step into a saffron-colored, exotic Moroccan fantasy world. Rich with eclectic accents and enveloping warmth, this structure dates back to 1925, when it was first opened as a YWCA. It became a hotel soon after the Great Depression. Today the pool bar features lounging mattresses swathed in ornate fabric. Nightlife heats up at Club Fes. And, hidden corners throughout the hotel, flickering candlelight, lush décor, and an “under-the-radar cool” make this a favorite hangout for celebrities who leave the see-and-be-seen Hollywood hangouts to the amateurs.
