The bane of every L.A. dweller’s existence?
The constant stream of crashers. From the “Thanks for giving us your bed!” parental visit to the recurring “I like to pretend I’m bicoastal” New Yorker, it’s beginning to feel like a year-round bed-and-breakfast around your place. So when you get that irksome call from your next wannabe guests, kindly suggest Hotel Bamboo. Nestled peacefully in the Hollywood Hills, it’s perfect for people who wish they lived here but don’t. Suites are done up in authentic Japanese decor and overlook the canyon and Hollywood sign. Amenities include high-speed Internet connections, DirecTV, and Sony entertainment systems.
And, considering the prime location and gorgeous environs, it’s shockingly cheap (rates start at $155 per night for a studio). So crashers have no excuse.
Although, let’s face it: That’s never stopped them before.
