Work is booking me a hotel on the west side during carmageddon. They asked me how awesome it should be, what hotel should i ask for?
Might I suggest the Hotel Angeleno? It’s that circular building perched right at the base of the Getty by the 405. It’s a former Holiday Inn, but Joie De Vivre renovated the hell out of it a few years back, and it’s pretty decent.
There are other hotels that I would normally recommend, but given the strangeness of carmageddon, I’d pick the Angeleno and request an upper floor room with a view of the interstate. It will be eerie as fuck during the shut down. You’ll have a front row seat, so to speak.
