Conde Nast Traveler 's annual Hot List hit the stands this week, 138 new hotels, 95 restaurants, 25 nightclubs, 75 spas picked for design, service, and amenities that "transcend industry standards." Let's focus on LA's restaurant and nightclub winners, shall we?
KatsuyaThere's nothing really too shocking here, except for one: West at the Angeleno. People enjoy the room, the fine views west, plus it's fun to see the traffic streaming below on the 405. We haven't been since it opened, but design, service and amenities that "transcend industry standards?" Ok.
West at the Hotel Angeleno
A little Las Vegas love: Restaurant winners are Guy Savoy, Rao's (both at Caesar's), and Nove Italiano (The Palms). All very different, all superb. The lone nightclub pick: The Playboy Club at the Palms.
