Rooftop Fun At The Chamberlain West Hollywood

The Chamberlain West Hollywood is cloistered in a mostly residential area of Weho, and until now, its facilities have only been open to guests and their friends. So much for trying to get a meal at the restaurant!

That policy is changing a bit with the introduction of Kor Hotel Group's "My Urban Retreat" Program, where you pay a fee (about $500 a year) to get discounts at and be able to use the rooftop pool, the restaurant, parking, and even good rates on rooms and suites. So now a limited band of outsiders will get to use the facilities here, and at Kor's other properties in the area: the Avalon, Maison 140, and the Viceroy Palm Springs.

I think you'd probably have to arrange a few hotel stays, cabana rentals and dinner dates to make your money back, but still, it's nice to know you have access to an otherwise exclusive property.
