Los Angeles, CA (August 1, 2012) Amid the luxury-laden streets of Beverly Hills and the glamorous lights of Hollywood, a new survey reveals LA’s adulterers are surprisingly stingy when it comes to making their hotel accommodations.
In a survey of 2,768 AshleyMadison.com members regarding where in LA they’ve met an affair partner, the budget friendly Holiday Inn topped the list of hotels where cheaters check in. The moderately priced Comfort Inn also made the cut, though the remaining 8 hotels on the list included some of LA’s most high-end haunts, such as the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Viceroy, and the Regent Beverly Wilshire (aka the Pretty Woman hotel)! See below for the complete list of LA hotels where they really need to change the sheets more often.
Top Ten LA Hotels for extramarital hookups:
|1) Holiday Inn (120 Colorado Avenue)||31%|
|2) Hyatt Regency (2025 Avenue of the Stars)||23%|
|3) Comfort Inn (321 North Vermont Avenue)||20%|
|4) The Standard (550 S Flower St.)||18%|
|5) Beverly Hills Hotel (9641 Sunset Boulevard)||16%|
|6) SLS (465 North La Cienega Boulevard)||13%|
|7) Regent Beverly Wilshire (500 Wilshire Boulevard)||11%|
|8) Andaz (8401 Sunset Boulevard)||10%|
|9) W Hollywood (6250 Hollywood Boulevard)||10%|
|10) Viceroy (1819 Ocean Avenue)||9%|
According to AshleyMadison.com’s founder and CEO Noel Biderman, certain hotels have developed a reputation for being hotbeds of marital malfeasance. “Many hotels make more than half of their profits off affair clientele so they are more than happy to turn the other cheek when certain guests make a reservation under a fake name and leave after only a few hours.”
Hotels no one seemed to be using included the Mondrian, the Hollywood Roosevelt, and surprisingly, the Chateau Marmont.
Other interesting survey data includes the most popular times of day for LA trysts. Unlike most big cities, the majority of extra-marital meet ups take place during the day with 54% surveyed meeting between noon and 5pm. The second most popular time slot was after 5pm (31%) and only 14% of Angelenos have been meeting for the proverbial ‘nooner’ (from 9am – noon) with 1% ready for an early rendezvous between 6:00am-9:00am.
