Oscar Party Week

It's Los Angeles hotel season, folks. And no, that doesn't mean hotels around the city do promotions or offer great deals. It means it's Oscar time. So forget the normal Angeleno status indicators of having a nice car or fancy zip code -- this week, where you stay, drink and dine is more important than ever before.

Our friends over at The Hollywood Reporter have put together the list to end all lists and they have called it "Hotel Wars." We prefer to look at is as a guide to where to try to sneak in this week for a quick cocktail and a possible Oscar family sighting. Check out a few of our favorites below, or click over to THR for the complete list. Bottoms up!

Sunset Tower

The Art Deco 1929 landmark hotel with a great Hollywood history -- once home to Elizabeth Taylor, Howard Hughes and Diana Ross -- is now the swank canteen to Jennifer Aniston, Ryan Murphy, Emma Stone and Brian Grazer at its Tower Bar restaurant. In 2010, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt broke bread here with David Fincher the night before the Academy Awards, and this is where Michael Fassbender hit the dance floor with Channing Tatum at the CAA post-Globes party in January that ran past 3 a.m. Vanity Fair holds its annual Oscar A-list post-telecast fest at the hotel. "Every aspect of the hotel feels warm and intimate," says NBC-Universal's Lauren Zalaznick.

Indulgence: An in-room 50-minute four-handed massage ($240) while staying in one of the two penthouse suites ($2,500), which come with wraparound terraces.

Who Stays: Andy Samberg, Tom Ford, Sean Penn. From $375
