Check in was quick and easy. Room type was not exactly what was promised. Type of room selected was to be view of either the Hollywood Sign or Hollywood Station (which is the Hollywood Blvd entrance to the hotel). Our view was of a parking lot. Not so amazing. However, the hotel, lobby, and room was very clean, neat, and stylish. THe location was also very central to the areas in LA we traveled too. Also, everyone we dealt with was very accommodating and friendly, and we were provided with the type of service we look forward to when staying at Starwood Hotels.
Other then the view issue described above, I have no major complaints about this hotel (other than the outrageous parking fees and paying for high speed internet which is with just about every Starwood Hotel). I would think since we only stay at Starwood Hotels and I am an SPG member, parking/internet would be comped or something. Even Holiday Inn offers free WIFI.
Drais night club (in W Hotel) is a big Hollywood Hot Spot with a long line forming every night. During this time it would be hard to get in the hotel because of the amount of people/cars. If I was a night club type of person, this would have been a great place to stay and I could have just stumbled back to my room at the end of the night.
I would recommend this hotel mostly for younger hipper people who are looking for a good nightlife scene. I am 32 and from the midwest, and felt a bit old and out of place at this hotel. If I return and stay in the same area, I think I will pick a different hotel just for that reason (and that reason alone).
