Did you watch (albeit, somewhat shamefully) The Fabulous Life Of... — and were you devastated when it stopped airing? Have you always believed that Eloise trumps Goodnight Moon in both storyline and illustrations? Do you have a Pinterest board dedicated to insanely expensive vacations that by no means reflect your current income? If you answered "yes" to any of the above, then consider yourself in for a treat.
With more five-star hotels than we can keep track of, L.A. is home to some of the most over-the-top, next-level luxury suites in the entire world. And, while we might not be prepared to throw down our rent check for one night in the penthouse of a West Hollywood hotel, these rooms are a lot of fun to ogle. Ahead, we've rounded up 15 of the wildest, most extravagant rooms in the city. There's even one an en-suite catwalk. Hang the Do Not Disturb sign and enjoy your stay!

The Gate Suites At The London West Hollywood
The London West Hollywood just unveiled its brand-new Gate Suites, which give off a vibe of British aristocracy mixed with California cool. If you've ever dreamed of being a real-life princess for a day, spending the night here would be a good place to start.

The London West Hollywood, 1020 North San Vicente Boulevard (near Sunset Boulevard); 310-854-1111.

The Hollywood Hills View Apartment Suite At The Line
By far the newest hotel of the bunch, Koreatown's The Line practically vibrates with energy. Its biggest and most decked-out room has massive floor-to-ceiling windows, a wet bar stocked with Korean drinks and snacks, not to mention a view of the Hollywood Hills that will knock your socks off.

The Line, 3515 Wilshire Boulevard (near South Normandie Avenue); 213-381-7411.

The Presidential Suite At The Huntley Hotel
This is pretty much the perfect beach house — except it's on the 17th floor of a stunning hotel. The loft-like main room adorned with plush, white leather furniture, white marble counter tops, and subtly sparkling chandeliers is great for entertaining (or Instagramming).

The Huntley Hotel, 1111 Second Street (between California Avenue and Wilshire Boulevard); 310-394-5454.

The Loft Residences At Palihouse West Hollywood
That perfect, loft-like one-bedroom West Hollywood apartment you've been dreaming of your whole life? It exists. Only, it's in the form of a really expensive hotel suite.

Palihouse West Hollywood, 8465 Holloway Drive (near North La Cienaga Drive); 323-656-4100.

Suite 100 At L'Ermitage Beverly Hills
In celebration of the Beverly Hills Centennial, L'Ermitage unveiled Suite 100, a massive one-bedroom palace dedicated to all things '70s. Designed by Ken Fulk, the suite pays homage to Studio 54, and the decade's experimentation with art and fashion. Endless covers of Interview Magazine line the bathroom walls from floor to ceiling, and, most importantly, there's an elevated, in-room catwalk.

L'Ermitage Beverly Hills, 9291 Burton Way (at Foothill Road); 310-278-3344.

The Gloria At The Charlie Hotel
Truth be told, any room at the Charlie Hotel is an incredible room. Once home to Charlie Chaplin, the boutique hotel boasts 13 rooms — err, bungalows. But, if we're forced to pick just one, we'd go with The Gloria. In a perfect world, we'd move into the two-story, two-bedroom bungalow with our bestie and settle in to watch old movies every night.

The Charlie Hotel, 819 North Sweetzer Avenue (near Waring Avenue); 323-988-9000.

The Rock & Roll Suite At Hotel Shangri-La
This suite definitely lives up to its name. In fact, the hotel specifically informed us that the shower holds up to six people, and the room has remote-controlled blackout curtains that will make your "morning after" a bit less painful.

Hotel Shangri-La, 1301 Ocean Avenue (at Arizona Avenue); 310-394-2791.

Signature Flats At The Redbury
Part rock, part bohemian rhapsody, The Redbury transports you to Morocco by way of Hollywood. The hotel's counterculture vibe really comes through in its Signature Flats, which include everything from a record player and vinyl collection to a private balcony overlooking the Hollywood Walk of Fame. There are even optional in-room yoga classes. Namaste.

The Redbury, 1717 Vine Street (at Hollywood Boulevard); 323-962-1717.

The Monarch Suite At The Viceroy Santa Monica
Sure, it's beautifully decorated, and the bathtub has some serious jacuzzi jets. But, the best part about this room is sweeping ocean views — perfect for watching a glorious sunset.

Viceroy Santa Monica, 1819 Ocean Avenue (at Pico Boulevard); 310-260-7500.

SIXTY Suite At SIXTY Beverly Hills
Mixing a dose of '60s shine with a dash of California cool, SIXTY Beverly Hills is a total time warp (without the dust, strange smells, etc.). Though not as big as the Penthouse, The SIXTY Suite definitely gets our vote for being the coolest room in the establishment. Did we mention the ridiculously plush carpeting and the three private balconies.

SIXTY Beverly Hills, 9360 Wilshire Boulevard (at South Crescent Drive); 310-273-1400.

Townhouse Suite At Sunset Tower Hotel
With 20-foot ceilings, this split-level suite — complete with a winding staircase — feels much more like a home than a hotel. A very, very nice home, that is. The overall decor is decadent without being too chichi, with classic elegance and subtle charm.

Sunset Tower Hotel, 8358 Sunset Boulevard (at Fountain Avenue); 323-654-7100.

The Signature Suites At Mr. C Beverly Hills
Composed almost entirely of teak wood, the Signature Suites at Mr. C Beverly Hills feel somewhat nautical, but it's also undeniably handsome and sublimely cool, in a way previously only mastered by James Dean.

Mr. C Beverly Hills, 1224 Beverwil Drive (at West Pico Boulevard); 877-334-5623.

The Ritz-Carlton Suite At The Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles
It's everything you'd expect from the nicest suite at the Ritz-Carlton, including TVs embedded in the bathroom mirrors, a dining room table that seats 10, and the kind of closet Carrie Bradshaw would die for.

The Ritz-Carlton, 900 West Olympic Boulevard (near South Figueroa Street); 213-743-8800.

The Penthouse at Palihouse Santa Monica
Combining the looks of an old, Spanish villa with a chic British flat, the two-bedroom Penthouse at Palihouse Santa Monica would be dangerous for us to move into — mainly owing to the fact that we'd never leave.

Palihouse Santa Monica, 1001 Third Street (at Washington Avenue); 310-394-1279.

Presidential Villa At Sunset Marquis
The Sunset Marquis' Presidential Villa is massive, boasting two bedrooms, three bathrooms, two large living areas, and a full kitchen. You'd get lost in there all by yourself. Luckily, your own private butler can keep you company.

Sunset Marquis, 1200 Alta Loma Road (near Sunset Boulevard); 310-657-1333.
