Hot! JK Hotel Group to open 850, a Chic New 23 Room Boutique Hotel at West Hollywood, Los Angeles in Autumn 2018

Hotel 850

Hot on the heels of the relaunch of LA’s most iconic hotel – Sunset Tower – legendary hotelier Jeff Klein will open 850, a new boutique hotel situated in the heart of West Hollywood. Fashioned after Klein’s passion for residential-style hotels, 850 will offer a home-from-home in the heart of the city by British designer Rita Konig with 23 beautifully appointed rooms, a communal living room, large rooftop terrace and a modern pantry where guests can enjoy meals by Chefs from across the city.

850 is in the cultural and geographical heart of West Hollywood. The hotel’s façade is in the style of a historical bungalow, tucked away in a residential neighbourhood surrounded by must-see hotspots – including Sunset Boulevard, Melrose Avenue and Runyon Canyon – coffee shops and restaurants. This chic home offers a sanctuary from the hectic city.

Design and Architecture
Inspired by his travels around Sicily, Klein’s aim is to create an intimate space in a great Hollywood location. 850 feels more like a chic European hotel and features interiors by British designer Rita Konig – including 23 beautifully appointed rooms – who will bring her bold and collective style to West Hollywood. Interiors will feature distinct layers of pretty pastel colours and textures which will be used to create a relaxed patchwork of old and new and will introduce an elegant, lived-in timelessness to the LA hotel scene. All spaces will be for hotel guests only, allowing them to connect on a more personal level while enjoying a communal experience.


Restaurants & Bars
The intimacy of the hotel will create a unique communal experience among guests. The lobby-lounge, which will sit at the heart of the hotel, will double up as a bar serving an extensive menu of premium wines, spirits and cocktails, carefully curated by Klein and his team. The living area will be home to a large cosy fireplace, antique leather armchairs and vibrant fabrics, while the communal residential-style kitchen will be complete with a marble sub-zero fridge where complimentary breakfast is served. There will also be a series of revolving Chefs from across LA who will be invited to cook dinner for guests showcasing local delicacies and international cuisine. The beautiful rooftop terrace will offer spectacular views of the city which guests can enjoy, accompanied by wine and mezze.

Big Sister-Sunset Tower
850 will be the newest addition to hotelier and restaurateur Jeff Klein’s JK Hotel Group. It’s big sister, Sunset Tower, is one of West Hollywood’s most iconic hotels which has recently completed a major multi-million pound transformation. Since taking over the helm of the hotel 14 years ago, Klein has lovingly restored and injected it with a new lease of life including elegant, chic interiors, a new outdoor terrace and swimming pool and wellness area. The redesign features timeless and classic interiors inspired by the linear reliefs on the façade of the iconic building, and Klein has stayed true to the iconic Art Deco influences of Sunset Tower to create a lasting effect that feels inherent to the hotel. The Terrace has also been reborn, with a dark and glamourous new bar in the same style of the famous Tower Bar, as well as a separate indoor/outdoor restaurant, which is connected to the swimming pool and quintessential LA vista beyond.

Rates at 850 start from $395 on a room only basis, for more details please visit:
