The former Portland Square Hotel underwent a top-to-toe renovation to relaunch as the more upscale Sanctuary in 2011. The new tone starts in the dimly lit lobby, where leather couches and armchairs are set around a working fireplace and statues of Indian deities line the hallway. Spread over two towers, the 111 guest rooms have an overall masculine aesthetic (brown-and-burgundy leather headboards, faux-leather paneling on the floors—including in the shower), accented by chandeliers, ruby-red settees, peek-a-boo glass showers with modesty curtains, and furniture inspired by vintage trunks. Rooms have Frette-sheet-topped beds, and most tend to be midsize or smaller (particularly the Superior category, with just one window), but there are a couple space-maximizing elements like extra storage under the settee. (The sole suite has a living room and California closets.) There's also free Wi-Fi hotel-wide, and in-room gadgets like Bluetooth-ready iPod/iPad docks and flat-screen TVs. There's a small yoga room, though guests wanting to work out in a gym are given passes to a nearby Sports Club L.A. or Equinox. A small corner bar hosts happy hour from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., while a private elevator takes guests up to Haven, the rooftop lounge. The hotel’s restaurant, meanwhile, is located in the back of the first floor.
