Conrad Opens Gehry-Designed Hotel in L.A.

The new-build 305-room property has a winning location in the downtown Los Angeles arts district.

Conrad Hotels & Resorts opened is first West Coast property on July 6, part of a $1 billion, two-tower development in downtown Los Angeles called LA Grand. A mix of retail space, luxury residences, and the Conrad Los Angeles, LA Grand was designed by acclaimed modern architect Frank Gehry, best known for his spiraling, stainless steel Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in Bilboa, Spain.

While the design of the 305-room, 28-story hotel is all glass and straight lines, it sits across the street from another curving steel Gehry creation, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, home of the L.A. Philharmonic.

Outdoors, there’s a 4,400-square-foot event lawn as well as a 16,000-square-foot rooftop terrace and pool deck.

Conrad is one of three luxury brands in Hilton Worldwide’s portfolio, alongside Waldorf Astoria and the newer Tempo brand. As such, it includes opulent amenities like the 7,000-square-foot Conrad Spa Los Angeles, a collection of restaurants helmed by award-winning chef and humanitarian José Andrés, and artwork throughout the reception and lobby spaces. The lobby bar is made from polished and glazed lava that is 11,000 years old.

The Los Angeles Convention Center is two miles from the hotel, and several arts venues are within walking distance, including contemporary-arts museum The Broad and the Museum of Contemporary Art.
