Arrival/Check-In: In an urban location within minutes of Rodeo Drive and UCLA and not too far from Venice Beach, W Los Angeles is surrounded by all the razzle-dazzle of L.A. yet in a quiet and convenient location offering easy access with a wide entry and an efficient lobby. You can check in, drop your bags and head straight to the Living Room Bar, STK Los Angeles or sit poolside at The Hideout, a brand-new outdoor dining experience. From the moment you arrive, you’ll feel the contemporary vibe and relaxed, well-organized tone similar to other W Hotels you’ve visited.
Guest Quarters: I stayed in the Spectacular King Suite, perfect for me, as I was traveling on business. I entered the room into a spacious business center with an ample desk, easy access to power and room to work. Just off the business center, a comfortable lounge area offered a large sectional and chairs. The separate sleeping area featured a king-sized bed, with the W signature mattress, and a TV. The modern bath included a tiled shower and sink that was perfect for one guest. The room also featured a fully stocked W MixBar. I enjoyed the layout of the room and the ease with which I could work in a comfortable, sophisticated environment.
Services/Amenities: The property offers several dining options. I had a fun evening with some famous people, which set the tone for my visit to L.A. We started in the Living Room Bar, a chic lounge offering several types of seating areas. Afterward we moved our conversation to STK for a fantastic dinner. To start, we shared a few tasty dishes which included market lettuce, heirloom beet and pear salad and tuna tartare. Our main courses included Mary’s organic chicken, flatiron Wagyu and branzino served with maple bacon sprouts, spicy broccoli and mac and cheese (a signature dish). While all of these dishes were incredible, the best part of the meal was dessert. We ordered The Cloud, a flaming cotton candy cloud which burns away to disclose secret sweets on the inside.
In addition to the fabulous restaurants, the hotel offers five meeting/event rooms ranging from a boardroom to team-building activities to high-tech meeting space; event rooms are spacious enough to host a wedding. Guests can take advantage of the W’s signature Whatever/Whenever service.
One of the nicest features is the outdoor area, The Hideout. During my visit it was being refurbished, so I didn’t have an opportunity to visit this lovely outside area. It is, however, now complete and offers another great escape at the W Hotel. You can’t visit L.A. without getting some exercise; so if you need a workout, there is a FIT gym.
If you have plans to visit L.A. for business or pleasure, keep The W Hotel in West Beverly Hills in mind for convenient, upscale accommodations.
◆ Equally enjoyable for business or leisure stays, the W Hotel is in a great location and practical for business needs.
◆ There is a great restaurant and a fun lounge area to visit with friends.
◆ This upscale, modern and relaxed hotel offers quick check-in and ease of getting around.
