About Hotel Per La Los Angeles


Located on the corner of 7th and Olive Street in Downtown Los Angeles, Hotel Per La is housed in the former Giannini Building, built in 1922 and originally the headquarters of the Bank of Italy.

This new downtown Los Angeles hotel features 241 signature rooms and suites and grand public spaces for guests and locals alike — including 10,000 square feet of event space, a ground floor restaurant and bar, a daytime café, and a rooftop bar offering poolside drinks and dramatic views of the LA skyline.

The Story Behind the Name

A nod to the building’s beginning as a bank for the people, Per La translates to “for the” in Italian. Its founder, Amadeo Pietro Giannini, believed in the abilities of those commonly overlooked, signifying the hotel’s inclusive spirit and name — essentially meaning “for Los Angeles, and people like you.”

Today, our 12-story Downtown LA hotel retains the building’s signature architectural features, while enhancing the guest experience through playful, contemporary public spaces, and new food and drink concepts that encourage community socializing and dining, creating a relaxed, breezy environment in the midst of the city’s bustling downtown.

Neoclassical Style, LA Flair

Much of the building’s Neoclassical style — such as its Doric columns, ornate golden ceiling, and marble floors — have been preserved in Hotel Per La’s public spaces and incorporated with a new design to create a wabi-sabi aesthetic reflective of the city’s eclectic mix of residents. Contemporary furnishings, airy linens, and pops of bright colors that feel distinctively LA are woven throughout the open spaces and flooded by California sunshine.

A Grand Entrance

Upon entry, the reimagined lobby experience offers a distinctive sense of arrival from the moment you walk through the new awning over the entryway. A botanical oasis with oversized mirrored arches and a soothing water feature makes way for the dramatic archway inspired by the Amalfi Coast. It’s encased in mirrors that open into the distinct main lobby and restaurant spaces, which was originally the main banking hall.

Artistic Spaces, Local Artisans

Over 4,000 pieces of art — from commissioned works to vintage prints sourced between Italy and California — can be seen throughout the hotel’s public spaces. They include a hand-painted tapestry behind the reception desk from LA muralist Jessalyn Brooks and a rich, purple lounge with Baldessari-inspired art. Additionally, many of Hotel Per La’s furnishings and décor have been sourced from local artisans.

At the time, Los Angeles was the country’s 10th most populous city — and downtown was the epicenter of a flourishing metropolis.
