Farmer's Daughter Hotel - Los Angeles, California - Sassy Boutique Hotel near Hollywood

The Farmer's Daughter Hotel has attitude - a delightful mix of small town country pride and big city sophistication. As Manager Peter Picataggio says, "We are lucky to have the freedom to create a more interesting and eclectic experience... refreshing and unpretentious and I plan to keep it that way.''

The concept hiding in the background behind every aspect of the hotel, and its quirky name, is the allure of Hollywood, where "a farmer's daughter got off the bus and embraced her god-given assets to become somebody. She let her pigtails and became a city slicker. She is now the envy of the city girls and the toast of the men in town. She may have lost a few things on the way to the top but she held on to her love of the small town, the comfort of mamma's hospitality and the gift of good cookin'.''

The hotel's farm-themed guestrooms exude this unique character. For example, the "No Tell Room'' is tucked away in a corner, where guests can feel safe for "a mellow get together or a seductive rendezvous.'' It features mirrors on the ceiling above a comfortable king-size bed, painted murals, copper tables, and a full wet bar for entertaining.

There are two well appointed Farmers Suites, each containing a kitchenette stocked with pots and pans for dining in. Separated from the private bedroom, the spacious living room has an overstuffed couch that doubles as a sleeper bed.

The Double Rooms and Single Rooms each come with gingham curtains and a rocking chair in the corner. There are country-style rag rugs on the floors and the walls are adorned with original paintings of barnyard animals.

All rooms are designed to be bright and sunny with an open room quality indicative of country living. Their modern amenities include a 32-inch flat screen television, a DVD player, free wireless Internet access, an iPod docking station and alarm clock, an over-sized writing desk and an in-room safe. And the bathrooms have been stocked with Lather bath products.

Each evening, the Farmer's Daughter Hotel management expresses its country hospitality by conducting a Wine Hour. Guests are invited to mingle, while enjoying some cheese along with the fruit of the vine. The hotel also has a swimming pool and a peaceful courtyard for relaxation and escape from the rigors of bustling L.A. life.

The hotel's signature restaurant is Tart, which specializes in down-home cooking, including corn bread muffins, fried green tomatoes, blackened tuna burgers, molasses glazed pork chops, Creole paella, jambalaya pizza, and more. Topping the dinner menu is the Cowboy Steak, a 24-ounce bone-in ribeye, which is grilled and then smoked in a cast iron dome with alfalfa hay, topped with brandy peppercorn sauce. Tart is open from 7:30am for breakfast on weekdays, and 8am on weekends, until "it winds down" each day except Sunday, when the doors close at 3pm.

The Farmer's Daughter Hotel is located at 115 S. Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, California 90036. It borders Hollywood between Melrose and 3rd Street, within easy walking distance of the historic Farmers Market and the Grove shopping mall. Also nearby are the Melrose Shopping District, CBS Television City, Beverly Center, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and historic Canter's Deli.
