Autograph Collection, famous for its handpicked selection of 290 independent hotels worldwide, has welcomed Hotel Per La into its portfolio. This boutique lifestyle hotel, located on the corner of 7th and Olive Streets, has a rich history dating back to 1922 when it served as the headquarters of the Bank of Italy. Now, under the careful curation of HN Capital Partners and Sage Hospitality Group, Hotel Per La is set to offer guests a unique blend of history, luxury, and cultural diversity.
The name “Per La,” translating to “for the” in Italian, pays homage to the building’s founder, Amadeo Pietro Giannini, and his belief in the dignity and abilities of all individuals. The name essentially signifies “for Los Angeles, and people like you.” Today, the hotel stands as a testament to inclusivity, celebrating the diversity of cultures and characters that make up the vibrant city of Los Angeles.
The Neoclassical architectural features of the original building, including Doric columns, golden and blue ceilings, and marble floors, have been meticulously preserved in Hotel Per La’s public spaces. However, a new, playful design reflective of LA’s diversity has been seamlessly integrated. Local Los Angeles interior designer Jaqui Seerman has brought contemporary furnishings, airy linens, and pops of bright colors, creating a space flooded with California sunshine.
French architect and designer Jacques Garcia’s influence can be seen in the 241 guest rooms and suites, drawing inspiration from Italy. The color palette is derived from the fully restored Italianate ceiling in the lobby, and each room features custom-designed furnishings, antique Persian rugs, and artwork sourced from around the globe.
The hotel’s art program, boasting over 4,000 bespoke pieces, celebrates its Californian, Italian, and Mediterranean heritage. Modern-style photography with a vintage lens invites guests to explore contemporary visions beyond tourist attractions. Vintage artwork from Italian antique stores, collections from Portraits de Villes, and original photography from commissioned artists create a unique and consistent display throughout the hotel.
Hotel Per La is also a culinary destination. With multiple restaurants and bars, including Ristorante Per L’Ora, Bar Clara, and Café Ora, guests can savor Italian cuisine with a Los Angeles twist, enjoy poolside drinks with cityscape views, and unwind at a welcoming coffee shop and market.
For those seeking event spaces, Hotel Per La offers 10,000 square feet of creative meeting spaces, from boardrooms to rooftop pool soirées. The preserved majestic cathedral ceiling in the historic lobby sets the stage for grand parties and lush courtyard dinners.
