At the Farmer’s Daughter Hotel — located across from The Grove and farmer’s market — you can find everything you need on-site or within a few blocks. The Farmer’s Daughter Hotel was remodeled in 1997 and updates to its exterior and guestrooms are slated for completion in mid-2015.

The public spaces at Farmer’s Daughter beckon you to belong and hang out in the game room with billiards or ping-pong, in the lobby or by the elevator on the comfy couches. There’s even a picnic table and a pool with rubber duckies.

Whether you need a tech-savvy room for a business trip or a place to hang out and relax after a day of touring, you’ll find sociable settings that will make you think, “Only in LA.”

Investigate the recently renovated Robin Room, decorated in robin’s egg blue wallpaper, with custom-made furniture from Java, Indonesia and grasscloth-wrapped walls. The huge mirror and cheeky transparent wall between bedroom and bathroom may give you ideas about what to do with the Farmer’s Daughter.

Ask to stay in the “No Tell Room,” with a copper-encased mirror above the bed, a full landscape mural and a full wet bar.

Guests rave about the complimentary whisky happy hour and bikes to explore the surrounding area. The hotel offers homemade chocolate chip cookies each afternoon around 3 p.m., as well as fresh iced tea and kettle barbecue potato chips. Each room has bathroom treats from C.O. Bigelow from New York City and Nespresso coffee machines.

Tempt your taste buds on site at TART, with buttermilk fried chicken and waffles with Tabasco-maple butter. Sit inside or out by the fire pit, and relax under the stars and twinkling strung lights.

The all-day menu has many Southern-style shareable snacks and entrees, including steak tartare “scotch egg,” heirloom tomato salad and spicy barbecue long beans. Try a basket of biscuits for brunch with waffles and French toast, and build your own omelets to finish.

The cocktail menu is served in mason jars to continue the downhome theme. TART’s many signature, spiked seasonal punchbowls are worth investigating: Scouts Honor with High West Campfire whiskey, apple brandy, orange bitters and a sugar cube; Southern Orange Tree with Ketel one vodka, orange, Serrano bitters and cranberry; or Whole Family Punch with peach vodka, Champagne and orange.

Farmer’s Daughter is a playful yet chic haven for Southern California visitors and locals. Come join the family.
