Original details fill the lobby, hallways, guestrooms and suites. Over an always-in-fashion black and white, diagonally laid checkerboard floor, a pair of sparkling chandeliers drop from the lobby's high ceiling. Wood flooring runs throughout the property. And to top it all off, the illumination of the iconic neon sign brightens LA's night sky from the rooftop.
The dining and drinking options at the Normandie are as diverse as its past. Cassell's Hamburgers, a vintage LA burger joint that opened in 1948, is now located on the first floor of Hotel Normandie and offers classic diner fare made with premium ingredients.
Le Comptoir is a nightly pop-up restaurant with a prix-fixe menu served counterside. With a 63-degree egg, Nantucket bay scallops, and kurabota pork belly on the menu, and between two seatings of 10 seats, you'll definitely want to make reservations. Wine pairings encouraged.
