Nothing quite says luxury like a hot bath filled with soothing spa jets. And when said bath is just steps away from your cozy hotel bed, it’s the ultimate form of vacation. After a day well spent touring the city’s greatest attractions (and trust us, there are plenty) or a late-night dinner at one of the best restaurants in L.A., dipping your toes into a whirlpool of relaxation is a well-deserved respite from the buzzy metropolis. Whether you’re looking for a tricked-out standard hotel room or a honeymoon-worthy suite, we’ve made a list of the best hotels offering the highly coveted, spa-like amenity.
Top L.A. hotels with Jacuzzis in the room
This elite and quietly decadent Mission-style ’20s hotel, a dreamy getaway on 12 fairytale acres of lush landscaping, reopened in 2011 after a major two-year overhaul. The additions—which include new lofts and hillside suites, a La Prairie spa and fitness center, plus upgraded room features—are impressive, but thankfully the overall vibe hasn't changed much. When you’re not walking through the gardens of the plush oasis or checking out the iconic hotel swans in the mini pond, relax in your in-room Jacuzzi (a staple amenity in every room and suite) with a class of fine wine. After all, it is vacation.
This sparkling property hasn’t been solely responsible for the renaissance of Manhattan Beach, but it has certainly played a part in the regeneration. The boutique hotel is slick, yet approachable, stylish, yet not without a sense of humor, and oozing with California cool. Located in the heart of the beach city (and two blocks away from the ocean), the coastal oasis invites guests to unwind in one of 38 luxury guest rooms. Each comes equipped with a vast, two-person spa-bath and color-adjustable chromotherapy lighting to set the mood.The penthouse suite has beer on tap by request in the kitchenette and a vast Sanijet spa tub with color therapy. It’s an impressive spot.
Formerly a cool retreat for hot Hollywood stars, Shutters has a relaxed but decidedly upscale style. Filled with comfortable sofas, club chairs and prints by modern masters such as David Hockney, the lobby mirrors the beach-cottage ambience of the rooms and suites, which in turn feature lovely, dark hardwood floors and the hotel's signature white shutters. Most rooms offer whirlpool baths, while the 12 private suites feature oversized versions for two (cue the champagne). Guests who prefer gentle pampering to the myriad outdoor beach activities can spend a day at the spa or sit poolside sipping wine and taking in the ocean views.
Set on the beach and within walking distance from Santa Monica’s best shops and restaurants, this elegant and architecturally stunning hotel is a local favorite. Most of the plush rooms and suites offer ocean and coastline views; for a really opulent stay, reserve one of the two-story penthouse suites or the super-deluxe presidential suite. While the property offers a pool and Jacuzzi, each room is equipped with a hydrothermal massage tub for relaxation at its finest. An afternoon at the spa is a vacation in itself; salon services can be enjoyed in one of five Mediterranean-style treatment rooms or, better yet, under a cabana on the fifth-floor pool deck.
With Angeleno-approved accoutrements like complimentary yoga mats and a backlot-inspired restaurant, the Kimpton Hotel Palomar Beverly Hills offers a decidedly L.A. take on the boutique chain’s playful upscale aesthetic.
