A straw-yellow, 16-story high-rise accented with white balconies, the Four Seasons looks less like a hotel and more like one of the apartment buildings that surround it. Inside, though, it's all luxury. Rooms are decorated traditional Four Seasons–style, with rich fabrics in florals and stripes; sunlight pours through French doors that open onto Juliet balconies. The views from the fifth floor on up are spectacular, ranging from the jewel-box lights of the Hollywood Hills to panoramic city views. The fourth-floor spa and pool area is one of L.A.'s prettiest: The tiered pool is ringed by shrubs and flowers, and the green-and-white-striped cabanas are outfitted with plasma TVs, Wi-Fi, and mini-refrigerators. Downstairs, the lobby opens onto a lush garden, where the hotel's Culina Italian restaurant has a discreet patio set among the greenery. During awards season, the bar overflows with recognizable faces, but star sightings (yes, that is John Malkovich having dinner) are common year-round.

"A world-class hotel without being stuffy," this 16-story contemporary property recently completed a $33 million renovation. Refreshed guest rooms with small balconies have "very comfortable beds." "Food and service are excellent" at Culina, which opened in March 2010 and serves modern Italian. Sip a lychee martini at Windows Lounge, or order an antioxidant salad at Cabana Restaurant. "Staff are both efficient and warm."
