We admit it. We've secretly driven by the round hotel near the 405 and Sunset and thought, "I know it's a run of the mill chain, but it would be really cool to stay there." Well, now we don't have to be ashamed any more: this hotel is going "casual luxury." Those of you 405 commuters and Westsiders already knew that this property is going from Holiday to haute, but some of us don't get that way too often. Our pals at HotelChatter snapped a few pics of the new Hotel Angeleno and gave us an update on its progress. Keep your Sevens on, though; it could be six weeks until you can stay without a hardhat.
