Rooms Begin at $300 a night
Proposals for lots of resorts also have surfaced in the past three decades, such as a 66-room resort that would repurpose a classic mattress mill and also a strategy to bring hundreds of hotel rooms into the region by means of a glassy Bjarke Engels-designed job alongside the LA River.
The Firehouse Hotel at Seventh Street and Santa Fe Avenue still holds a number of its original characteristics, including the wood and concrete flooring, pressed-tin panels, trussed ceilings, and even”niches originally built to maintain statuettes of the Virgin Mary.”
The rooms start at $300 a night.
It may not be for long, though this is the first hotel to open in the area.
But over this building’s 90-year-old frame, there have also been a lot of changes. The ground floor now houses a restaurant and bar, as well a daytime java shop and retail storefront.
The Firehouse Hotel’s place would place it in near proximity to a new, nine-story office building that can get underway later this year, an outpost of the private club Soho House opening this past season, and a sizable mixed-use complicated with retail and 110 live/work lofts.
The resort is run by Dustin Lancaster of both Bar and Hotel Covell at Los Feliz.
The upper floor holds the vast majority of the guest rooms. The rooms are named after colours –orange, red, yellow, green, blue–that can be incorporated into the decoration, together with furniture and custom light fixtures. Each room comes with its own kitchenette and toiletries.
