The Vibe: Siblings, not twins, with Moxy being the playful extrovert and AC the refined introvert. The dual-brand hotels occupy a 37-story mixed-use landmark.
The Area: On the corner of South Figueroa and Pico streets, directly across from the Crypto.com Arena and Los Angeles Convention Center.
The DNA: Bringing the two hotels together are the 12 astonishing dining and drinking options, each celebrating the city’s creative energy and culinary heritage. Located on the eighth floor, Level 8 will immerse the senses with a selection of innovative dining and drinking offerings in addition to the likes of Bar Moxy, the AC Bar & Lounge, and 34th floor La Lo La Rooftop serving Spanish-style tapas below twinkling bistro lights and retractable sunshades.
Suite-Me-Up: The 380-room Moxy reflects the bold, adventurous spirit of California, a haven for modern nomads in Los Angeles’s creative epicentre, with cosy rooms designed for flexibility. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow the SoCal sunshine to pour in, whilst adaptable space-saving furniture and storage solutions allow guests to stake their own claim to the space. Distressed leather headboards evoke a well-worn motorcycle jacket and a sculpture consists of chrome motorcycle handlebars mounted on a taxidermy-style plaque; a nod to the twin desert themes of bikers and wildlife.
The interiors for the 347-room AC Hotel Downtown Los Angeles as an artist’s loft, bringing the Spanish roots of the AC Hotel brand into conversation with the Latin heritage of Los Angeles. Warm, light-filled public spaces are contemporary and welcoming, while upscale, serene guest rooms provide a generously sized sanctuary for work or relaxation. The jewel of the AC is the sun-drenched Sky Lobby on the 34th floor, with views of Los Angeles that stretch all the way to the iconic Hollywood Hills. The 347 guest rooms serve as residence-like respites from the energy of the city, with an open-plan design providing a seamless flow.
