I spent 2 nights here during a recent business trip. The hotel had been recommended by our Corporate Travel Manager as very nice and convenient to our office. Very nice was an understatement. The hotel was amazing.
The room: I had the great fortune to have one of their 12th floor suites. The room was huge. It was very contemporary and tastefully decorated. It included a very large round white leather couch. At the risk of sounding cliche, it was "cool!" My room also had 2 large window seats with cushions, the size of twin beds, where you could sit. The room was clean and included many minibar selections in case you were hungry, thirsty or in need of oxygen(yes oxygen shots).
The lobby bar: Had drinks downstairs with our group before walking to dinner one evening. Service and drink selection was very good. Sit outside on the patio - it's beautiful and fun people watching.
Drai's Restaurant: I worked with an event planner(Mark Roberts) at the W and had arranged cocktail hour and dinner at Drai's for our group of about 20. The pool deck is a beautiful place to relax around a fire pit and have cocktails & hors d'oeuvres. It's vibrant and offers a beautiful view of the surrounding area. Dinner was spectacular. Everyone raved about the sea bass "course." I also heard great reviews about the filet with some saying it was one of the best they'd ever had. The servers were very attentive. You never had to wait for drinks - you were offered another before you finished the one you had. Just the way I like it!
The staff: The staff at the W seem to truly embrace their "Whatever Whenever" philosophy. They were very friendly and I'm confident they would do whatever they could to make your stay as pleasant as possible. I was very happy with Mark Roberts in the W event planning team. He did a great job!! I recommend working with him if you're thinking of planning an event at the W.
The W Hollywood was a great place to stay. If my business or personal travels take me to Hollywood again, I'll definitely stay at the W.
