Art deco is a design style of architecture that was popular during the 1920’s and 30’s. This architectural design is very decorative and includes various geometrical designs with bold colors. The materials used in this type of architecture are typically glass and plastic. This design style is said to have originated through French luxury goods, which had these designs on them just before World War I. The name “art deco” comes from the 1925 Paris Exposition of Decorative Arts. Los Angeles has a variety of hotels with different architectures and ambience.
