Den Meditation Los Angeles

Vacations are great, but sometimes from all of the go, go, go, you need a staycation after the vacation. You can easily wear yourself out while you are touring around the city, so making sure to take a few minutes to relax can be key in making sure you don’t burn out before the trip is through. Luckily for us there are plenty of relaxing activities in the city, beaches and parks are spread out all over for picnics and a day of sunbathing, but even that can be a bit stressful (everyone in Los Angeles feels it when they try to snag a parking spot near Venice or in West Hollywood). One way to combat this? Meditation. Don’t know

NoMad Hotel Los Angeles

The NoMad Hotel Los Angeles in the Downtown Section _____________________ If you’ve ever been to the NoMad Hotel in the Flatiron District, you know what a special place it is in the heart of New York.  Many know of it because of its incredible ambience, fantastic rooms, great service, a good stiff cocktail and the delicious roasted black truffle chicken. We’ve been missing out on the West Coast until now.  Sunday, January 21st, 2018 marked the grand opening of NoMad Hotel Los Angeles.  If you haven’t been to DTLA (Downtown Los Angeles) in the last few years, you haven’t been.  Even us folks that were born and raised in L.A. are shocked each and every time we go to this

Brunch in Beverly Hills

Brunch in Beverly Hills ——————————- If there’s one thing we Angelenos thrive on, it’s leisurely dining. The one constant observation from guests during our private Beverly Hills and L.A. tours is, “Does anyone work in this town?” All the cafés are jam-packed with people enjoying their downtime. Just drive down 3rd Street with the tons of afternoon hotspots, or go by Urth Caffe on Melrose Avenue….morning, noon, or night, and see the throngs of L.A. folks having salads, lattes, or pastries at this see-and-be-seen corner location in West Hollywood. Brunch in Beverly Hills on the weekends is really something special. We just had the champagne and seafood-heavy brunch at The Peninsula, and it was AMAZING. ***NOTE: The service here is

Arrive Hotel Palm Springs

ARRIVE HOTEL PALM SPRINGS We always say that Los Angeles is the perfectly centered city. About 2 hours in any direction we’ve got fantastic destinations. One can head west out of San Pedro, and hit Catalina Island by ferry, head north and visit Santa Barbara, go south and spend a day in San Diego, or head east and chill out in Palm Springs. Because of its convenience, Palm Springs is a favorite of Angelenos (natives of Los Angeles) and why so many celebrities over the last 70 decades have made it their home. Think New Yorkers and the Hamptons, or San Francisco with Napa Valley. The guides of Glitterati Tours L.A. recently spent our end-of-summer get-away in the desert and
