Where To Stay

There are lots of amazing hotels in Downtown LA, but here are a few of our favorite ones. If you decide to stay at The Freehand, don't miss out on our Girlboss rate—just use code GIRLBOSS when you book.


The NoMad


Located on the corner of 7th and Olive Street in Downtown LA, NoMad Los Angeles is in a truly historic building. Originally built in the 1920s as the headquarters for the Bank of Italy, the building’s gold and blue lobby ceiling has been fully restored and brings some seriously luxe Italian architecture vibes. And it doesn’t stop there: The plush rooms come with king-size beds, a marble writing desk, and Euro-style bathrooms, with Terrazzo-floored walk-in showers. Book it now.


The Freehand


Located in the historic Commercial Exchange building downtown, this super stylish hotel features suites, premium hotel rooms, and shared accommodations (a.k.a. it’s the first hostel-style room you’ll actually be excited to sleep in). Plus, there’s a rooftop pool with epic views of downtown, so you can nurse your post-Rally excitement hangover in the lap of luxury on Sunday. Book it now. P.S. Use code GIRLBOSS at checkout for 15% off
