West Hollywood, also known as ‘WeHo’, for all the fun packed in the small area of California, is an excellent choice for a vacation. Especially for the youngsters.

And the affordable vacation rentals make it all better.
Consequently, luxurious apartments, hotels, and building were constructed here, with interesting architecture and magnificent interior. And every film star wanted to spend their days at West Hollywood as they deserved. And the filmmakers obviously wanted a breathtaking environment captured in their movies. The masterpieces of some of the renowned architects are situated here. Such as Spanish Revival and Art Deco apartment building by Leland Bryant, The Schindler House by Rudolf Schindler and 9200 Sunset by Charles Luckman.
