A boutique Los Angeles hotel inspired by a fictional globe-trotter.
Dustin Lancashire opened Bar Covell, a neighborhood wine spot, at the Los Feliz end of Hollywood Boulevard in 2010. Five years later he converted the floor above (and later bought the next door building) to create Hotel Covell: a nine-suite outfit whose rooms take the form of mini-apartments. Each is decorated thematically, to illustrate the life story of fictional globe-trotter George Covell—from his frugal bachelor years in 1950s New York to his glamorous Parisian stints in the 1960s—and that of his (also fictional) teen daughter Isabel. The rooms are fitted with Parachute bedding and theme-specific vintage LPs, along with eclectic furnishings by local designers.
