Vanity Fair – September 3, 2020: My Ultimate Pandemic Life Hack: Just Living in a Hotel

Posted on September 3, 2020

Doorman at Villa CarlottaVilla Carlotta and The James of Hollywood was featured in Vanity Fair magazine in their September 2020 issue in “My Ultimate Pandemic Life Hack: Just Living in a Hotel“, with the writer describing his stay at the Villa Carlotta:

“I have been bunked up in a studio at Villa Carlotta in the Franklin Village section of Los Angeles. The Spanish Colonial–style building, constructed in 1926 by the developer Luther T. Mayo, was renovated to keep the original charm and reopened in 2018. And yes, there is a crystal blue saltwater pool.

My room is spacious and air-conditioned, has a kitchen, a walk-in closet, and Byredo Gypsy Water–scented products in the bathroom. Room 210 overlooks that pool, which is serene and quiet most days. If I need to do laundry, I take it downstairs and handle it myself; they provide detergent. I park on the street. There is no room service or scene-causing bar. It’s well appointed and comfortable, quiet and nondescript. The gym has a full set of kettlebells and two Peloton bikes.”
