The Self-Employed Business Traveler

The LINE Hotel

Funds for your hotel stay coming out of your pocket? No need to fret the upfront costs with a stay at The Line hotel. As impressive as it is budget friendly, the Line’s mid-century build calls to mind the mid-century golden age of advertising. Even if ads aren’t your field, any visiting clients will be impressed by the brutalist concrete build and original artwork found in the 12,000 sq. feet of indoor and outdoor meeting spaces. Why hole up everyone inside when the sun is shining? Take the business chat outdoors to the private Bonnie Brae terrace over bites from the trendy Commissary Restaurant.

The Tech Business Traveler

Hotel Normandie

A tech insider requires a hotel outfitted with the latest in tech– where better but the Hotel Normandie. Tucked away in a stylish package, the hotel’s tastefully decorated interior extends all the way to the impressive meeting space that feels more like a living room with all the necessary tech amenities and exposed brick details. CAT 5 fiber optic powers the impressively fast WiFi, LG HD tv’s screen your fav shows and movies inside your room and complimentary business service can come in handy for last minute print projects. You’ll wake up to a free continental breakfast and the legendary Cassell’s Hamburgers are a welcome change from stuffy hotel restaurants. After all, who doesn’t want to inhale a juicy prime cooked beef burger post-deal-making?

The Fitness-Freak Business Traveler

Los Angeles Athletic Club

Find your best form at the Los Angeles Athletic Club. Business visitors who moonlight as athletes will be able to take part in a multitude of programming at the expansive facility that was founded in 1880. Work on opening your hips in a yoga class before moving into kickboxing, playing a game of basketball or diving into the massive pool for laps and water polo. The boutique hotel that joined the club in 2016 has club-inspired rooms in rich shades of navy and maroon with luxurious fabrics helping to lull you into a cozy sleep. In-room WiFi is compliments of the club and a full business center is available. Start the morning with a buffet breakfast and end the night at the Prohibition styled cocktail bar. As the filming location for a good chunk of Mad Men, the Club is the ultimate L.A business travel hotel.
