Our producers travel the country scouting out only the hottest destinations to feature on 1st Look, so they've become quite the experts on hotels. Producer Allison Jarvis shares her favorite L.A. picks (and one south of the border!).
Capella Pedregal, Cabo San Lucas
By far, the most amazing hotel I've stayed at is Capella Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The grounds are breathtaking, and every room is oceanfront and has its own private pool. The moment you step onto the property you feel relaxed and like royalty, which makes it a really hard place to leave.
SLS, Los Angeles
In Los Angeles, one of the most fun places to check out is the unique and celebrity-studded SLS. The most exciting and unforgettable aspects of the hotel are Philippe Starck's design and the famously innovative restaurant The Bazaar by Jose Andres.
El Tres Silverlake Inn, Los Angeles
A lesser-known spot that I love in L.A. is the boutique El Tres Silverlake Inn. It's a tiny tucked-away place above El Chavo Restaurant with a really cool vibe. It's an edgy but warm spot in one of my favorite L.A. neighborhoods, and a stay there gets you a free margarita at the bar downstairs.
