tommie Hollywood is located adjacent to the new Thompson Hollywood as well as iconic city landmarks including the Sunset Strip, Hollywood Walk of Fame, Runyon Canyon, Griffith Observatory and the Capitol Records Building.
Local design firm, Studio Collective, developed tommie Hollywood’s casual, contemporary direction to abide by the notion of duality: cultural, temporal and natural. Spaces are led with a midcentury modern touch, inspired by the Los Angeles case study homes of the late 1950s and 1960s collated from architectural titans. Exposed structural steel post columns, natural white oak, natural stone, blackened steel, and hand-made ceramics accompany the time-worn furnishings to emphasize the tactile and celebrate the imperfect.
Upon arrival, an inviting sun-drenched lobby welcomes guests, accompanied by an expansive, steel-clad fireplace and enormous hand-carved wood relief artwork. A hyperlocal art program brings Los Angeles‘ proud creative community inward, with works from Bradley Duncan, Bruce Rubenstein, Valerie Wilcox and Ellie Pritts. The interior lobby beckons the pursuit of discovery and continues to leverage honest materials amidst communal workspaces with plush seating options. A ground- floor coffee bar sets the scene, which also opens to the exterior courtyard, offering cocktails into the afternoon and evening
The lobby walls naturally open in several locations, allowing the interior lobby to dematerialize seamlessly into the spacious
courtyard lounge. The mid-century modern touches are evident throughout with the use of resilient natural materials such as stone pavers, teak and cedar wood plank finishes and blackened steel hardware, that will patina naturally over time. Comfortable, eclectic furnishings complete the lush garden setting and bring forth charming dining experiences to create a social oasis within the city.
Each of the 205 guest rooms at tommie Hollywood is designed with purpose, offering a balance of style and function. Floor-to-ceiling
