Who's it for: Luxury, eco-minded travelers with an affinity for Scandinavian design. Couples who love to travel with their pooch.
Our favorite rooms: Each room is inspired by a Scandinavian celebrity. Our favorites include the Carl Von Linné cottage with a wood-burning fireplace and private garden and the opulent Birgit Nilsson room decorated in rich velvet with a windowed sitting room.
Don't forget: Ask about beach parking permits, which the hotel provides to make a day at the beach a breeze.
Insider Tip: In 2015, Austere, the Scandinavian design showroom based in Downtown L.A., opened a permanent outpost inside c/o The Maidstone selling goods from some of their most popular Scandinavian brands, including Schnayderman's, and Bjork & Berries. In addition, the common areas of the hotel are outfitted with classic designs from Scandinavian brands such as Artek and Louis Poulsen, all available for purchase through Austere.
