Hidden Gem: Petit Ermitage - Secluded Hotel Above The Hollywood Hills
Way up high above the Hollywood Hills, there sits a secluded luxury hotel called Petit Ermitage. Its amenities, like the pool and rooftop bar, are only available to guests.

According to the hotel’s booking tool, a one-night weekend stay over the summer will cost you about $350. But an unobstructed view of a California sunset is priceless.

According to Refinery 29, Sarah’s vision was to create a space that would be as welcoming as your best friend’s house. Mission accomplished.

Its concept, underwritten by the attached Freehand Hotel, brings a taste of the tropics to a crowded but refreshing rooftop pool.
L.A. Downtown News recommends sharing the punch bowl with friends, so with that insider tip, the first round is on you. The only other advice is merely encouragement: if you fall off your flamingo float, just get back on.
