Los Angeles Athletic Club

The Los Angeles Athletic Club has the ‘WOW’ factor in spades, it became the city’s first private club in 1880 when Hollywood was little more than a farm and an adobe hut, as the city grew so did the club; if you were somebody, you were a member of the LAAC.

This place has got to be seen to be believed, not only has it got an 80,000 sq ft gym with an impressive array of facilities including a basketball court used for filming commercials but there are 72 freshly remodeled rooms, each with custom furnishings, luxurious bedding, roman shades, and flat screen televisions.

There are many great attractions nearby, including University of Southern California, Nokia Theater, Walt Disney Concert Hall and Staples Center. Also close by are Los Angeles Convention Center and Dodger Stadium
