A Hoxton of Tricks: The Hoxton Opens In DTLAAuthor:Abigail Stone
The Hoxton, the latest cool hotel hotel to open in DTLA, is a warm and beautiful place to stay — and to hang out
The Los Angeles Railway Building, once the seat of the LA Railway Authority, has been converted into The Hoxton, a 174 bedroom hotel, and the 11th from the rapidly expanding London-based brand. The public spaces were designed in collaboration with Soho House. The roof features an open-air pool and Pilot, a bar and a restaurant (the name is a tribute to the space’s cameo as a launchpad in the film “Stranger than Fiction”). Sibling Rival, a cozy lounge and diner, sprawls across the main floor (their Disco Tots are an ideal cocktail snack).
The history of the ten-story Beaux Arts structure, built in 1922, informs the decor. Rich colors, fearless patterns — geometric, floral and palms — and generous, curvaceous furniture conjure up the voluptuousness of Art Deco design.
The bedrooms, designed by Ennismore Design Studio, come in four categories — Snug, Cosy (the “s” nods to The Hoxton’s U.K. roots). Their pale palette is punctuated by bold flooring, soothing shades of rose, gray and green, Thonet-inspired headboards, retro accessories and handmade tiles in the bathrooms. Room perks include: fresh milk and free WiFi, one hour of free calls to anywhere in the world, a mini fridge, and a daily breakfast bag delivered to the room.
