The newest addition to hotelier and restaurateur Jeff Klein’s JK Hotel Group, No. 850 is a new hotel concept inspired by European residential-style properties where the comforts and accoutrements of home blend seamlessly with the luxury and service of a contemporary hotel. Nestled on a beautiful street in West Hollywood, the historic buildings circa 1918 bungalow façade leads to a newly designed property developed by architect Marc Appleton and designer Rita Konig in partnership with Klein. The result is a decidedly different urban getaway. An under the radar gem for the curious and discerning, and a hotel unlike any other in Los Angeles.
No. 850 is located along a residential stretch of West Hollywood’s San Vicente Boulevard, tucked away behind an unassuming, California-style bungalow façade, yet mere steps from the city’s top culinary, entertainment, and cultural destinations. Together with the acclaimed team of architect Marc Appleton (San Ysidro Ranch restoration) and renowned London-based interior designer Rita Konig, Klein restored the property and its interiors with a unique sensibility typically found in private homes, where depth and detail are the focus. The intimate space features 23 beautifully appointed guestrooms, a welcoming lobby lounge, a communal living space, large rooftop terrace and modern kitchen, all within this 10,000+ square foot property. Konig, one of Elle Décor’s “A-List” designers, brings her bold yet charming aesthetic to No. 850 with interiors featuring distinct layers of effortless pastel colors and varied textures juxtaposed against captivating artwork and eclectic décor accents. Guestrooms are carefully curated to feel livable and comfortable, with sleek oak floors, cozy fireplaces, bespoke furnishings, and marble sinks. Large, steel sash windows open the rooms to natural light and offer panoramic views of the city.
No. 850’s lobby lounge sits at the heart of the hotel. The intimate living area, situated on a floor above the lobby lounge, affords guests a space to relax, socialize or conduct meetings, boasting a large and inviting fireplace, antique leather armchairs and vibrant fabrics. The residential-style communal kitchen, complete with a marble sub-zero refrigerator, provides complimentary breakfast to guests and will be home to several of Los Angeles’ highly acclaimed chefs who will be invited to showcase their cuisine in a rotating series of appearances. Guests can take in sweeping views of the West Hollywood Hills on the tranquil rooftop terrace while enjoying a selection of wines carefully curated by Klein and his team, and small bites during the daily wine & mezze hour.
No. 850 is the newest addition to JK Hotel Group’s prestigious hospitality collection. Its big sister, Sunset Tower, is one of Los Angeles’ most iconic hotels, which recently completed a major, multi-million dollar transformation. Under Klein’s ownership, the hotel has seen international fame as host of the annual Vanity Fair Oscar Party from 2009 to 2013, as a multiple Condé Nast Traveler Gold List recipient, and a Condé Nast Traveler Hot List winner, among other accolades.
