Once you get over the sight of the old, concrete, vine-laced building, there is a charm to the W in Westwood. It is in a terrific location. It has the full W 'vibe,' and a happening pool (even though 'Entourage' is no longer filming).
Most of the staff is terrific and helpful, Those are the ones who remember you from trip to trip. The Wheels (car valets) are great, and the bell staff has improved 1,000%, much to my delight.
No problems with wake-up calls or finding outlets.
Towels are OK, not particularly big or lush and in need of an upgrade.
Amenities, like 99% of W's, are Bliss.
The Bliss spa is nice, but not as nice or accommodating as the Bliss in the W Hollywood.
The engineering staff was very helpful, as I was in a room that had no air conditioning that worked because it was 55F in LA (never mind what it was in the room or that I like to sleep in a chilly room).
Housekeeping is below average & without attention to detail.
The front desk is OK, not great. It was sweet that they apologized they couldn't give me (SPG platinum) an upgrade for my entire stay (4 nights) due to demand. OK. That is nice. That was, however, the last I heard from anyone, including management throughout my stay. That was a bit surprising since I'd been in that hotel quite often.
