Hollywood glamour, fashion inspires Chamberlain West Hollywood’s redesign

How Hollywood glamour and fashion inspired Chamberlain West Hollywood’s redesign.
The Chamberlain West Hollywood completed a $15 million-dollar, property-wide redesign.

The Chamberlain West Hollywood in Los Angeles completed a $15 million-dollar, property-wide redesign including 115 suites, lobby, hallway corridors, restaurant, meeting and event spaces, rooftop pool deck and bar.

The Chamberlain worked with Jackie McGee of Perkins+Will to lead the hotel’s redesign. Inspired by creatives of the fashion industry, who regularly frequent the hotel, The Chamberlain’s new look evokes a residence of a fashionista with touches of monochromatic tones, in addition to curated art pieces and contemporary furniture.

Each of The Chamberlain’s 115 suites were redesigned. The suites’ predominately black and white color palette is reflective of the persona of Hollywood’s golden era. The suites are meant to celebrate Hollywood’s glamorous past and inspire works of art among today’s creatives. Beds are embellished with a black, white and gray chevron design, and the living room’s furniture is accented with blue bolster and throw pillows in varying patterns. Ranging from 350 square feet to 650 square feet, the new suites have separate living spaces, fireplaces, and marble bathrooms with Gilchrist & Soames bath amenities. Most suites also include balconies.

Redesigned by Rossi Architecture, new features include a glass railing system, additional poolside seating, lounge areas and private cabanas.
