Cast your gaze upon the recently revitalized area in the Hollywood Hills and beyond from the 26th-floor rooftop deck of the Ritz-Carlton hotel, complete with a heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi, cabanas and poolside beds perfect for soaking up the California sun. Located in the LEED-certified tower of LA Live, a large entertainment center with shopping, restaurants, cinemas and nightclubs, there’s little reason to leave the complex, unless you scored tickets to a pro basketball or hockey game in the adjacent Staples Center.
Dip your toes into the highest rooftop swimming pool in LA, at the Andaz West Hollywood hotel. Sip cocktails like the hotel’s signature drink, Mr. Plant, named in honor of the legendary Led Zeppelin rocker and frequent hotel visitor in the 1970s. The intimate rooftop deck includes cabanas, plus stunning views of the Sunset Strip and Hollywood Hills beyond. Does Andaz get your vote for best LA rooftop bar?
