LA nightlife impresario Dustin Lancaster opened Bar Covell on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Feliz a couple of years ago; now he's offering five suites (upstairs) for patrons who want to stay a bit longer. Located in a nondescript 1930s brick building, the Covell Hotel comes to life thanks to designer Sally Breer of Co-Mingle . Here are our favorite spaces. Photos by Bethany Nauert . Above: The gilded entrance with signage by Marjory Garrison signals Hollywood-style glamour to come.  Above: A pink-velvet-upholstered Eileen Gray Bibendum chair anchors the Chapter 3 room, which is meant to evoke a Parisian atelier.
