“Super hip, but missing some key elements.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

Like many of the people in LA, it's pretty on the outside, but dig a little deeper and it's missing something. The pool was filthy, the furniture in our room had scuffs and tears. They have chargers for every device in the room, but they were clearly broken. The towels were crunchy and thin. Internet charges are per device, not per room. So my husband could use his laptop, but if i wanted to use my iPad, i had to pay another $15. The staff are all friendly and helpful, but for the price, they really need to address some of these issues.

Thank you so much for the feedback; and you're right - we needed a little freshening up. We have recently audited every single room and are replacing all of the broken/missing phone connections, clocks, and other items. We also just re-opened the pool which underwent maintenance to make sure it's in tip top shape for the summer. Rest assured we'll be camera ready again in no time.

We hope to welcome you back soon!

All the best,
Lauren

I have heard good things about the W Hotel so thought I would stay at the one in Hollywood Boulevard. Good is not the word this place is unbelievable. From the moment we checked in we were treated with great service. The lobby lounge bar is awesome and so is the outside bar. The staff are awesome and really go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. The location is great and nearby restaurants, bars, clubs etc. Our rooms were more then "Wonderful" they were amazing and had everything we needed. I would like to thank Chrisptoher and Christian who I was in contact with before my trip. They have me great advise on which clubs and bars to go to which we took on board and ended up at Bootsy Bellowsbon a Tuesday night and partying with David Arquette..:) 3 days in LA is not enough I am 100% coming back and 100% staying at the W Hotel. We all loved LA life and the W treatment! :)

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this fantastic review of W Hollywood! I'm so glad you got a taste of true Hollywood life - our W Insider always knows the best spots to check out! It's a little Hollywood secret that the best celeb spotting happens during the week as opposed to the weekends. You never know who will be sitting at the table across from you at Delphine or will join you at the bar for a cocktail!

It is always wonderful to receive feedback from our guests, so that we can continue to ensure that our guests have a fabulous time and enjoy our Whatever/Whenever® service. We hope to see you back soon!

All the best,
Lauren

If you are staying in the heart of Hollywood this is the spot. Just a few blocks from the Graummans star walk of fame, and clubs--perfect location. Or you can stay in a lovely room great bed excellent spa techs a nightclub and the Living Room for drink and people watching supreme We also became hooked on the sound machine in our room and slept 10 hours and bought our own. The decor is contemporary and staff very attentive. Party on, relax, or never leave your room and create your own experience.

Room Tip: Cost and location. Ours was a great size, full bar, champagne on ice, and a lovely sitting nook that...

Excellent service when checking in, a great lobby and atmosphere but the room was a bit funky in style and not that big. If you like to party and be seen then this is a good hotel, especially the bar on top. Other posters have said their rooms were noisy but mine was quiet, view out the back of nothing in partucular. For business outside of the entertainment industry (yes, that would describe my group), convenience to the highway was a big plus, and within walking distance to many good restaurants. Room was a little on the dark side even with every light turned on but I would say it was a fun stay with different vibes than you get from a typical business hotel.

I really must compliment the service of the doorman, valet, bellman and check in staff! They make a great impression upon arrival.

Beautiful hotel in the heart of Hollywood! The hallways and rooms are lighter and a bit brighter than most W hotels, but all the same comforts and amenities. I love this hotel chain...very comfortable and great beds!! The bath products are from Bliss and they are worth taking home!

The front desk staff is very warm and gracious as well as the valet and everyone that we ran into from room service to housekeeping...all smiles and warm welcomes.

The hotel is walking distance to several bars and restaurants and the train/subway station is under/adjacent to the hotel. To be honest, I don't know where the train goes to or how to use it, but seems like a great way to get other places so long as it's on the train route. From LAX, you would have to change trains 3 times, so sort of difficult, but a cheap way to get to/from the airport.

Room Tip: All the rooms are well appointed and comfortable.

I was traveling though Los Angeles for 1 day, alone. The room was spacious and perfectly appointed, although at times I felt it was quite dark in the room, which impedes ability to read. However, reading is most probably the last thing you would do at this hotel. It's as if there is a permanent party downstairs where all the guests are made to feel really welcome. Service was impeccable I would not recommend it for elderly couples or couples with kids. If you have an appetite for fun, in a convenient area then this is the hotel for you

When you walk out the front door, you get that leftover morning wino smell by the subway door right outside. Hotel is not really in the great location that other people say.

They seem to be more interested in the night life that comes to the hotel than the actual guests who stay there. Don't know why the put the concierge in an office rather than having him visible where people actually know that he can help!

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room facing the back

Thank you for your comments - we definitely appreciate the feedback. We value all guests of the hotel and I apologize if you did not receive the service that we strive to provide. Our concierge used to be located in the Living Room at a large, open desk; but based on customer feedback, we decided to move them into the glass rooms. While it does separate them slightly, they now can provide guests with their undivided attention away from the activity occurring in the public spaces and are always available to assist you with your every wish.

It pains me to hear that you were not happy with your stay. I hope you choose to stay with us again, so we have the opportunity to show you how amazing W Hollywood should and can be.

All the best,
Lauren
