As I strolled through the streets of Los Angeles, I stumbled upon the charming Carlyle Inn, nestled mere minutes from the glamour of Beverly Hills. This boutique hotel boasts a unique visual identity, with its striking black and white stripes making it an unforgettable presence in the city’s urban landscape.

What drew me to this hidden gem was its prime location, providing easy access to the best that LA has to offer. The Carlyle Inn is more than just a place to rest your head – it’s a visual feast waiting to be explored and Instagrammed. With every turn, I discovered yet another photogenic spot, making my stay an unforgettable experience.

Guest Rooms

Immersive design elements permeate every aspect of the guest rooms, with a striking white, green and black colour combination that exudes warmth and sophistication. The meticulous attention to detail is palpable in the intricately designed headboards and plush pillows, which collectively fostered a sense of comfort and tranquility throughout my stay. A nostalgic charm also pervades, courtesy of vintage-inspired telephones that are simply irresistible – I couldn’t help but be drawn to their whimsical appeal, almost as if compelled to use them to make a call to the front desk.


At the Carlyle Inn, the courtyard is a striking fusion of black and white stripes, paired with graphic tiles and an array of black and white umbrellas. This visually stunning setting is further elevated by bursts of vibrant orange and green accents, making it a haven for colour enthusiasts. The space is impossible to ignore, evoking a sense of warmth and welcome. As guests step into their rooms, they’re treated to the courtyard’s unique charm from a bird’s-eye perspective.


During my visit to LA, I was thrilled to discover that the courtyard at the hotel features daybeds, ideal for soaking up the sun. As someone who’s used to cooler Canadian temperatures, I found the warm November weather to be a delightful surprise. I made the most of it by lounging on the daybeds and basking in the sunshine whenever I could. The hotel also offers a hot tub for those seeking a relaxing experience.

Patio Tables

As you step into the courtyard at the Carlyle Inn, you’re immediately enveloped in a cozy atmosphere, complete with patio tables and chairs that invite lounging with loved ones or getting some work done under the shade of charming umbrellas. The central location in Beverly Hills provides a unique vantage point to take in the sights LA has to offer.

In my recent visit to the Carlyle Inn, I had the pleasure of appreciating its prime spot from which to explore the city. The perfect blend of relaxation and convenience.

Wishing you all a fantastic weekend ahead! As I’m back from Oregon and eager to dive into my work backlog, I hope you’re making time for some well-deserved leisure.
