My place is in Koreatown so close to Larchmont Village, Downtown LA, Hollywood with DIRECT VIEWS of the Hollywood Sign & Parking nearby. Enjoy our tasteful combination of historic charm, exposed bricks, hard wood floors, modern upgrades with a incredibly tasteful design fit for Vogue Magazine! My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids). Don't miss the sunrise or sunset shine down our street lined with those iconic tall palm trees. What a Sight!

Paris’ place was very clean, spacious, and most importantly comfortable! She was an amazing host that made sure our stay went as smoothly as possible, and was easy to get in touch with to answer any questions. This was my second time staying here and I would definitely recommend!

The interior photos of Paris' apartment is true as depicted (beautifully decorated), and she was always accessible whenever we needed her . Thanks, Paris! However, the listing does not specify how dedicated parking is located 3-4 city blocks away from the actual apartment. For someone with physical limitations, it can make it challenging to park, and a deal breaker. Street parking is an option, but very strict with specific time limitations on various days. Since dedicated parking was a bit of a distance, we chose street parking and moved our car early the next morning at 6:30 am. Normandie is a also very busy street, so be prepared to drive carefully and slowly. From the apartment, noise can be heard from your neighbors to the left, right and above the apartment. If you're a light sleeper, this probably isn't the most ideal place for you. The building has an old New York feel, and walkup, so be prepared to walk a few flights up to the apartment. Tip: K-Town is just blocks away. Lyft / UBER from Mid-Wilshire to DTLA is about $20-$25 during peak times. Paris is a nice host, but not sure if this location was ideal for us.

Thank you so much for your amazing customer service from booking to check out. You were extremely accommodating and your place literally felt like home away from home. My only suggestion is more towels ;) I would definitely book with Paris again next time I come to LA ❤️
