Stay in a historic Hollywood mansion
Picture this: a charming Victorian-style farmhouse, built in 1904, surrounded by lush fruit trees and gardens in the heart of Tinseltown.
No, this isn’t just another Los Angeles home for sale; it’s our new favorite inn, the Lombardi House.
The sprawling 7,000-square-foot estate--which is one of the oldest still standing in this part of town--has been converted into four apartments, including a two-bedroom that sleeps six (from $375 a night) and a three-bedroom for eight (from $500). Each room’s decor is unique, but decorator Amber Lewis has maintained a uniform bright look with neutral furnishings and colorful accents (hello, eye-catching palm-leaf prints).
Since each unit has a subway-tile kitchen with a full-size refrigerator, these digs are perfect for traveling families or long-term guests who’d like the option of eating in. There’s ample parking, and the location can’t be beat--it’s just between Hollywood Boulevard and the 101 (with a Tommy’s Hamburgers across the street).
