A passionate advocate of high standards and flawless service, hotelier and restaurateur Jeff Klein is the mastermind behind Sunset Tower Hotel – a chic, elegant hideaway located on Los Angeles’ famed Sunset Strip. Klein began his work in the luxury hospitality industry at the Gotham Hospitality Group. In 2000 he embarked on a venture of his own, launching the stylish City Club in New York City. Klein’s professionalism and ability to cater to a customer's every needs made the City Club an overnight success.

In addition to City Club, the hotel’s award-winning DB Bistro Moderne, with Executive Chef Daniel Boulud, also received rave reviews. Praised by The New York Times and New York Post, and recipient of the prestigious James Beard Foundation award, DB Bistro immediately became a hit among locals and guests.

Klein is also a partner in the world renowned Monkey Bar, a classic New York City bar & eatery with a famed past that dates back to 1936.

With his celebrated renovation and redesign of this L.A. landmark, Sunset Tower Hotel quickly gained a reputation for delivering both exceptional cuisine and service. “Although the Tower Bar serves five-star cuisine, the essence of the restaurant stays true to L.A. flavor with fresh ingredients that create simple but flavorful dishes,” says Klein. “Whether at the Tower Bar or DB Bistro, each guest can expect not only to be surrounded by the most beautiful design but also impeccable service and superlative food.”

JK Hotel Group announed this year its acquisition of The San Vicente Inn in Los Angeles, a boutique property which Klein plans to renovate and rebrand as part of his growing collection. 

Klein’s dedication to first-class service in all aspects of his business, from hotels to restaurants, underscores his unique understanding of the finer points of luxury. His ability to accept nothing less than the best is precisely why travelers and diners flock to his hotels and dine at his restaurants.
