Newly inducted as a Virtuoso luxury member, Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board (LA Tourism) attended Luxperience with The Line Hotel and Mondrian Los Angeles. This marked the first time hotel partners joined the LA Tourism booth, bringing to life the destination’s luxury hotel offerings for travel buyers.
Among LA’s wide range of accommodation options, luxury and unique properties can be found in various neighbourhoods. Mondrian Los Angeles showcased the Sunset Strip’s classic glamour and excitement in the form of a luxury boutique hotel. Moving towards the hip region of Downtown LA, buyers had the chance to learn about The Line Hotel, a collaboration by the Sydell Group with local influencers Roy Choi, The Houston Brothers, Sean Knibb and art and design collective Poketo.
Los Angeles is experiencing a surge of hotel development and growth at the moment, with 24 new hotels under construction and another 28 in final planning stages countywide. These 52 hotel projects will deliver more than 9200 new hotels rooms to the LA area in the next few years.
Australia is LA’s number two overseas market with 430,000 Australian visiting LA in 2015, representing an increase of 7.3 per cent over the past year. It is also LA’s number one hotel lodging market.
