The Sofitel Los Angeles, located right in the heart of Beverly Hills, is simply a wonderful hotel. Location, service, the restaurant and bar (and great wine, of course), the spa, the rooms… and the pillows. My God, I could have slept for days.
Over the Christmas holidays, I was back in Southern California to visit my family, which lives about two hours south of Los Angeles. I spent about a month at home, which was fabulous, and given the weather at that time of year, has made me look forward to a little ‘home break’ every year at that time more and more as each year goes by.
While I was back this year, there was a Travel Massive meet-up in L.A. Travel Massive is a monthly meeting held in a couple dozen cities around the world, where travel bloggers meet and socialize with travel industry members. I’d taken a few meetings in L.A. about some possible video projects and am friends with a number of bloggers based there, so I decided to head up for a little fun networking.
And the Sofitel was nice enough to put me up for two nights at their hotel, right in the center of things. I didn’t have too much time to put together a lot of L.A. footage to go along with the shoots I took in the hotel, but there are a few quadcopter shots (with some unusually bad Southern California weather making the skies look not-so-awesome).
I hope you like the video as much as I enjoyed the hotel. Do me a favor when you get a chance and subscribe to my YouTube channel as well. I’m trying to get to 1,000 subscribers and am still a few hundred short. You can either do it by watching the video above and clicking on the YouTube link to my page, or even easier…
