With the recent Golden Globe awards and the announcement of the Oscar nominees this morning, we’re officially in the throes of 2015 award show season. Now, more than ever, A-list celebs are looking for a place to hide out and find a little R&R. We have an exclusive list of some of the buzziest properties in the West where our favorite celebrities– both past and present– have gone to get away from it all.

Triada Palm Springs, an Autograph Collection hotel 

Triada Palm Springs, an Autograph Collection hotel, was originally built as a private residence before becoming The Ambassador Hotel in the 40s, and then actor Alan Ladd’s Spanish Inn in the 70s. Over the years, the hotel attracted Hollywood greats and notables like Tyrone Power, Lana Turner, Jimmy Durante, Esther Williams, Elizabeth Taylor and Howard Hughes. It enjoyed its soft opening last month, so you can be among the first to visit the new property and see for yourself what new A-listers decide to bunk down here in Palm Springs.

Every year, the film world gathers in Park City for the Sundance Film Festival, drawing all kinds of celebrity figures. Canyons offers a variety of lodging including Grand Summit and Sundial Lodge, and offers A-listers ski-in/ski-out access to the slopes for enjoyment in their downtime. Celebrities like Mario Lopez and Jeremy Piven have bunked down at Sundial Lodge with its heated outdoor pools, rooftop hot tub and rugged chic ambiance, while Bill Murray has been seen dining at The Farm, the resort’s New American restaurant. The most luxurious hotel on property, Grant Summit, has hosted guests like Anthony Hopkins and James Van Der Beek.

The Mansion at Casa Madrona 

Perched hillside in Northern California’s beautiful Sausalito, The Mansion at Casa Madrona recently completed the renovation of its 11-room Mansion including 5,000-square-foot Alexandrite Suite, upper hillside cottages and meeting and event space. Prior to the renovation, Casa Madrona has long been home to many notables and celebrities over the years, Dick Van Dyke, Carol Burnett, Warren Beatty and the rock band Pink Floyd — which even has a suite named after them!

Located in North Hollywood, CA, The Garland is a one-of-a-kind urban retreat. With true Hollywood roots, The Garland is named after the late, critically-acclaimed American actress, Beverly Garland, whose husband built the property in 1972. Currently undergoing a $20 million renovation, we’d call the hotel’s vibe “retro-chic” and reminiscent of the Mad Men era and old-school Hollywood glamour. The Garland offers complimentary transportation on the property’s exclusive trolley to hot spots such as the Hollywood Bowl or Universal Studios, and guests might catch a glimpse of famous actors on property where well-known shows like “Parks & Recreation” are known to film. It hasn’t been confirmed, but we’ve heard that a few other big events have taken place at the hotel, including Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s engagement and an impromptu concert by Boyz II Men. John Wayne was such a frequent guest that suite 716 is even informally called “The John Wayne Suite.”
