The unveiling of the El Royale in 1927 by famed architect William Douglas Lee was described as “a decorous setting of inimitable beauty”. Like her sister property, the charming Chateau Marmont, the El Royale set the standard for vintage Hollywood architectural elegance and prestige in Hancock Park.
The rococo details used by William Douglas Lee throughout the exterior and interior of the building are what visitors initially find most striking when they first lay eyes upon the majestic El Royale. The discerning will appreciate the details of the vintage bathroom tiles, the delicate original hallway chandeliers, or the quality of the custom parquet wood floors which adorn each unit. The El Royale is one of the most well-preserved and architecturally significant 1920’s historic landmarks in Los Angeles and is a place where people come to and to be inspired.
The grandeur of the historic façade leads to the ornate grand lobby featuring antique iron chandeliers, hand-painted ceilings, original marble and hardwood floors, mahogany woodwork, and cornice moldings that hearken back to a glamorous age when hand-hammered fixtures and superior craftsmanship were the norm.
Now listed as a City of Los Angeles Historical Cultural Monument, the El Royale has recently enjoyed a refresh to its finishes and amenities which has infused modern comforts amid old-world craftsmanship. Our boutique collection of apartment homes, still replete with historical aesthetics, have been tastefully upgraded with modern trappings and convenience including luxury fixtures and appliances. Combined with full-time valet and concierge services, the lavish living at El Royale makes it one of the most sought-after residences in the city. Make an appointment today to come visit with us.

Situated in prestigious Hancock Park immediately opposite the exclusive Wilshire Country Club, the El Royale’s enviable address has long been heralded as an enclave for a fortunate few.
