He calls himself, only half-jokingly, a “hotel whisperer”, but Angeleno Jeff Klein, the man behind the Sunset Tower (sunsettowerhotel.com; from $525), knows more than most about cultivating the kind of hotel everyone wants to be seen (or just be) at. This month marks his newest entry onto the West Hollywood scene: 850 (number850.com; from $450), a 23-room boutique property on the site of the old San Vicente Inn. While the architecture is quintessential, white-board California old-meets-new, the interiors are the work of a British woman: Rita Konig, daughter of decorating doyenne Nina Campbell, and a rising interior design star in her own right. Expect some rattan, a killer menu – and probably one or two A-list faces.
