Hotel deLuxe, built in 1912 and refurbished in 2006, takes its dramatic Art Deco cues from the hotel’s theme: retro Hollywood glamour. By paying homage to the golden era of Hollywood, the hotel has created an air of timeless sophistication without snobbery. Details of days gone past — such as a 1950s-style cocktail bar and a rotating screen of black and white movie star portraits in the lobby — blend seamlessly with modern amenities including in-room iPod docks and a menu of spiritual books from which to choose. Not only do you get ultra-personalized service from a friendly staff at this Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel, you can also get a Hollywood history lesson during your visit. Just take the elevator to different floors to learn about a director or film genre, commemorated by a mirrored plaque and an extensive collection of photos.
