What's New in Los Angeles Autumn 2023



Trends: After an exciting couple of years welcoming properties like The Conrad, Downtown LA Proper, The Hoxton and more, Downtown Los Angeles remains at the centre of hotel innovation with the Delphi opening in what used to be the Standard featuring a newly designed lobby and bar, and the long-awaited dual-branded AC and MOXY property opening earlier this summer. These conjoining hotels welcome fun-loving guests to enjoy sweeping views of the city, artistic design, signature dining and meeting spaces just steps away from LA Live and the Los Angeles Convention Centre.

In Ancient Greece, Delphi was considered the centre of the world. A few thousand years later, that essence now resides at 550 Flower Street: a staple of Downtown Los Angeles’ silhouette. Once the headquarters of Superior Oil, and then, the focal point of the city’s early 2000’s revitalization, the address is once again home to creativity, culture, and hospitality. Their 207 rooms and two penthouses err on the side of understated, yet teem with high-touch amenities and design elements. Denae’s Diner has recently opened on the ground floor, offering all-day dining in a modern-day interpretation of the classic diner.
