The Frank Gehry designed Conrad Los Angeles opened in mid-July, 2022, as the newest Golden State luxury Hilton brand. Riding an elevator up to the 10th floor reception area, visitors will be captivated by the interiors from world-renowned Tara Bernerd.
“We are excited to expand Hilton’s West Coast presence with the debut of the first Conrad Hotels & Resorts property in California, one of our largest growing markets in the U.S. This is a monumental occasion as we open the doors to this incredible property amid downtown Los Angeles’ development boom and we are looking forward to offering guests an unrivaled, luxury hospitality experience in this sought-after destination,” said Danny Hughes, executive vice president and president, Americas, Hilton.
Anchored within The Grand LA, Related Companies’ a new shopping, dining and entertainment destination, this is now the premier place to stay and live in downtown Los Angeles.
“The opening of Conrad Los Angeles establishes a new category of luxury hospitality in downtown LA inviting travelers to immerse themselves in the neighborhood’s world-class art and entertainment venues like never before,” said Rick Vogel, executive vice president, Related Companies. “Whether you are coming from across town or around the world, Conrad has delivered a one-of-a-kind, culture and wellness-infused experience that offers guests an entirely new perspective on our great City.’
The lines of Gehry’s iconic and visionary Walt Disney Concert Hall architecture are subtly replicated inside to embrace the vibrant creativity of downtown LA. The interiors bring a layer of warmth and timeless elegance throughout the reception, lobby spaces and creative culinary venues helmed by award-winning chef and humanitarian José Andrés and his ThinkFoodGroup.
Riding an elevator to the 10th-floor reception area, one immediately notices that Conrad Los Angeles is a chic and artful hotel. Artwork curated in collaboration with Judith Tatar of Tatar Art Projects showcases prominent local artists such as Mimi Jung, Ben Medansky, and Brian Wills.
Upon entering the hotel, guests will find themselves transported to a chic atmosphere, from the undulating ceiling in the lobby that marries the rhythm of the building’s façade and lines, to the polished and glazed molten lava arrival bar piece that is 11,000 years old.
A rich palette of pale linens, interspersed with rich woven fabrics, and an eye-catching pop of mustard yellow wall piece, complement the wide-planked pale oak floors, polished concrete and Ceppo di Gre stone from quarries of Lake Iseo in Lombardy. Live greenery planters soften the lobby, lounges and exciting culinary spaces.
Artist Jon Krawczyk brings his sculpture work to life on the property’s event lawn. It’s an ideal spot for large group gatherings and weddings.
These modern art installations further build upon Conrad Hotels & Resorts’ commitment to connect guests with the Los Angeles community, providing insight into LA’s flourishing art industry.
