Alsace LA

Home Studios as Interior Design

Alsace LA, a 48-room boutique hotel nestled in the historic West Adams neighborhood of Los Angeles, opens its doors September 20, offering a richly authentic, unbuttoned experience where artistic, free-spirited energy is embodied and interpreted through design. The hotel is anchored around a lush interior courtyard and a secluded in-ground pool retreat embellished with dreamy desert landscaping that adds to the hotel’s oasis-like charm. Central to the hotel's ethos, Alsace LA was envisaged with the West Adams community in mind—seeking to serve locals and business owners as an amenity, partner, and supporter.

The diverse and creative West Adams area is rich with stunning historical architecture, standing as one of the oldest neighborhoods in Los Angeles. In addition to its iconic homes, today’s West Adams boasts a thriving restaurant scene, unique retail storefronts, bountiful street art, and a variety of cultural and nonprofit organizations.

Alsace LA’s design highlights the power of visual storytelling, riffing on charming elements like Bauhaus-inspired curves, white oak ceilings and floors, and site-specific art. With an emphasis on the unexpected, the hotel is truly a one-of-a-kind space, made culturally relevant with contemporary art, photography, and playful design details. Developed by CIM Group with architectural design by NMDA Architects and interiors by Brooklyn-based Home Studios, Alsace LA’s layered exterior and interior design details include the eclectic use of vintage and custom furnishings and lighting. Fluted textures, terracotta plaster, and warm wood materials subtly reference California’s diverse vegetation and natural environment to create the ambiance of home, one that is of the neighborhood and distinctly Los Angeles.

Upon entering the Alsace LA, guests are greeted in an intimate, tucked away lobby, which mimics a Mediterranean-style portico (or porch). Residential in feel, the hotel’s central courtyard filters light through each of the hotel’s three stories. The serene and inviting rooms provide guests with congenial amenities as if staying in a well-curated residence. While each guest room features handcrafted details, larger suites also feature a balcony or terrace, a custom dining table, and a bespoke pull-out sofa.

Alsace LA’s guests will be treated to daily complimentary coffee and pastries, and the hotel will be partnering with nearby Hi-Lo Liquor Market, who will curate boxes of bespoke local LA wine, beer, spirits, and snacks for guests to order on demand and have delivered directly to their room. The hotel will also welcome a to-be-announced new restaurant concept this winter, featuring indoor and outdoor dining options off the hotel courtyard.

Guests have access to a state-of-the-art, 24-hour fitness center featuring all the gym essentials including a treadmill, bike, rower, dual pulley system, kettlebells and free weights. As the hotel boasts ample bike racks at the property, it will offer complimentary guest bikes and monthly historical neighborhood bike tours with local realtor Jose Prats, founder of West Adams Bike Tour and Adopt A Bike, which refurbishes and encourages re-use of bicycles. And enhancing guests’ sonic experience, legendary music shop High-Fidelity Records will curate the lobby’s ambient sounds, as well as in-room playlists.
