Sage Hospitality Group Food and Beverage Community Engagement Manager in Los Angeles, California
Situated in the vibrant heart of Downtown Los Angeles, Hotel Per La is inspired by the building in which it’s housed. Originally the Bank of Italy, a historic 12-story building on the corner of Olive and 7th Street, the space is a symbol of inclusion and accomplishment. Per La is an inspired name that translates to “For The” in Italian, a nod to the building’s storied beginning as a bank for the people. Its founder, Amadeo Giannini believed in the dignity and abilities of those commonly overlooked. In essence, our name means: “For Los Angeles.”
