Our Weekend Getaway At The Kimpton Everly Hotel

Happy Monday!ย 

Wow does it feel good to be back in beautiful California after spending nearly a week in Arizona! As mentioned in my lastย blog post, it was my first time going to AZ, so I had no idea what to expect!

I mean, I heard it was going to be hot and everyone ALWAYS talks about HOW HOT it is there, but I generally LOVE hot weather! Afterall, I went to college in Sacramento and it gets pretty hot there (highs of like 103 sometimes)!

But Arizona…. that was a different kind of hot! Like a can’t breathe, don’t want to do anything, just want to eat ice cream all day kind of hot!… Obviously I wasn’t complaining about the ice cream part ๐Ÿ˜‰ But time and time again I’m reminded of just how lucky I am to live in beautiful California!

There is TRULY no place like it!

We really do have it all here! Beaches, the perfect weather, mountains, lakes.. My FAVORITE CITY IN THE WORLD….

Los Angeles of course!!!

We have it all!

And speaking of LA, let’s get into our weekend getaway atย The Kimpton Everly Hotelย from a couple weeks ago!

DeAndre and I flew down to LA for a family trip to Universal Studios Hollywood and thanks to Discover LA and The Kimpton Everly Hotel, we were able to experience this awesome hotel!

I’d never heard of it before, but it was in a great location, right in the middle of Hollywood (just down the street from Roscoe’s ๐Ÿ˜œย  ) and the pictures online looked great, so of course we wanted to stay there!

And wow am I glad we did, because it was everything and more!!!

I was most excited to see the rooftop pool and it definitely didn’t disappoint! There were views of downtown LA and tons of chairs to relax on to take in the beautiful sunset.

But after a quick stop to see the pool, we headed up to our room and the concierge opened the door to THE MOST beautiful view!!!! I’ve been to LA tons and tons of times, but I’ve still never hiked up to the Hollywood Sign, so this was extra special for me. We had a direct view of the sign and I just stood there staring out at it.. It was truly magical!! ๐Ÿ˜

And to our surprise there was also champagne, fruit, water and a hand-written note right there on the table, welcoming us to the hotel! They really went above and beyond!

DeAndre of course wanted to stop at Roscoe’s our first night haha so we unpacked our bags and headed downstairs!

The rest of the weekend was filled with family and fun! From Universal Studios, to Venice Beach, to another trip to Roscoe’s ๐Ÿ˜‰, it was a blast!

The last day at The Kimpton Everly Hotel, I had a photo shoot around the city, but being that there were so many cool spots in the hotel, we thought we’d start there! They have this SUPER cute cafe downstairs with marble countertops and gold accents, so naturally that was our first stop! I ordered this strawberry pastry, thinking nothing of it… Really just to use it as a prop honestly, but I took a bite of it and it was AAAAHHHHMMMMAZINGG!! I kid you not! I made Kathy (my photographer) try it and we both were shocked by how good it was!!! When I head back to LA in about a week or so, I will definitely be grabbing a few of those for breakfast! ๐Ÿ˜›

There was also this really cool wall with different colored frames and you guys know how much I love a colorful background. The whole hotel was just decorated really fun and the vibe was awesome. The bar was lively at night and I couldn’t have asked for anything more in a stay!
