"It's easy to tap into the Sunset Strip energy here, especially at the hotel's new Olive Kitchen Bar restaurant and rock-n-roll–styled lounge, the Cutting Room." Full review
Ask for a room facing the interior courtyard, both to avoid noise from the Strip and to overlook the heated saline-pool area with its mosaic-tile waterfall and striped lounge chairs.

DK Eyewitness
"Standing next to the Mondrian, the Grafton has a more accessible and low-key ambience."
Rough Guide
"Mid-level boutique hotel with attractive furnishings and CD and DVD players, iPod docks and flat-screen TVs, plus a pool and fitness centre."
