Los Angeles’s Silver Lake Pool & Inn amalgams Mexican Modernism and old Hollywood glamour under the beating Californian sun…
Located south of Sunset Junction in the heart of the Silver Lake neighbourhood of Los Angeles, Silver Lake Pool & Inn sees an evocative 1980s motel reimagined into an alluring design hotel with 54 rooms, an elevated pool deck, and an Italian restaurant where guests can dine indoors or al fresco.
Appealing to travellers and locals alike, hospitality brand Palisociety joined forces with Brosh and Timberlane Partners to create a community-driven hotel that complements the iconic and innovative neighbourhood it calls home. Surrounded by some of the city’s best restaurants, indie shops and cultural offerings, Silver Lake Pool & Inn is an urban oasis where like-minded individuals can hang out amid great design, food and plentiful amenities.
Looking to Silver Lake’s history and natural landscaping—as well as a myriad of sources and eras—Venice Beach-based design and architecture studio, Electric Bowery, created a singular space. Inviting yet relaxing, Mexican Modernism is evoked through the use of natural and vintage elements; old Hollywood glamour referenced in details from vintage-inspired neon signage to a custom marble and wood bar.
The guest rooms are filled with natural light, plush linen and luxury bathroom amenities; with Nespresso machines, walk-in rain showers and a gourmet mini bar as standard. Handmade Moroccan tiling and terrazzo nightstands contrast with vintage-inspired floor lamps, leather and wood armchairs, and artwork; whilst lush greenery and antique rugs add subtly distinct decorative elements.
Serving an all-day menu of Italian-inspired plates, Marco Polo Trattoria and Bar offers a seasonal menu from chef Casey Lane, guests able to enjoy simple, rustic Italian fare either indoors or around the hotel’s pool; the Southern California climate allowing for the majority of the property’s social spaces to be outdoors.
The latest addition to Palisociety’s expanding Los Angeles portfolio, Silver Lake Pool & Inn is another motel redux with all the glittering grace and urban cool its city demands.
