Perfect LA getaway!
Loved our stay at the Cara Hotel! Coming from Santa Monica, we crossed town to celebrate an anniversary with a staycation, and this hotel couldn’t have been more perfect. The courtyard and the rooms are so beautifully designed. The vibe and decor are just stunning. The service was amazing; the check-in staff were so friendly and great with recommendations. The neighborhood is a little rough around the edges but you are instantly transported to a magical setting once you step inside. The restaurant is always lively and it was such a pretty sight to overlook the courtyard from our balcony. Before checking out, we enjoyed lounging on the day beds with iced lattes. It was truly a perfect getaway. Thank you!
