“Much improved since a few years ago”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

I am not a fan of LA, but had to go for a wedding and must say that I enjoyed my stay here. I had stayed here back in 2006 and found it a bit dumpy, but they have upgraded the rooms and other areas of the hotel, so it was much nicer this time.

I booked a duplex loft suite and it was very comfortable and nicely designed. The room had a fridge and sofabed. My only complaint with the loft is that it was hot outside the first couple days of my trip, and the upstairs sleeping loft didn't cool off very much, even with the air conditioner and ceiling fan on. Oh, and one other minor complaint: the bathroom could have used some updating.

I LOVED the pool area - it wasn't such a "scene" as I imagine some of the other, trendier nearby hotel pools are. It was usually quite empty, and sometimes I had it all to myself. It was a very relaxing time sunning on the deck and taking the occasional dip in the pool.

The location can't be beat - there are tons of restaurants, coffeeshops, clothing stores, a Trader Joes and bars within walking distance.

No complaints about the staff - but I didn't deal too much with them. Housekeeping always said "hello" in the hallways.

Make sure that you eat at WeHo Bistro at 1040 N. La Cienega for breakfast/brunch - service was great and the food was super (especially the scrambled eggs - perhaps the best I've ever had).

If I ever visit LA again, I would definitely stay again at Ramada Plaza & Suites West Hollywood.

Thank you for your review.

I’m glad you enjoyed your stay in our loft suite. The -2- story loft suite is very popular with our guests. It’s quite a unique roomtype and very rare to find a hotel that’s offers this type of accommodation. Our hotel was completely renovated in 2009 and undergoes regular improvements and enhancements.

The outdoor heated pool and sundeck is a wonderful area to relax and enjoy the California sun. We also offer several retailers stores onsite including: Starbucks, Kitchen 24, Burgerim, Supercuts, Enterprise rent-a-car, UPS Store, Body Factory Smoothies and Flywheel Sports.
We hope to see you again soon.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

I absolutely hated staying at this place! We arrived at 10pm, drove in and waited... no bellboy or porter. so we lugged our 2 big bags out of the car and then the valet turns up and takes our car - no offer to help with the bags mind you!. we walk in dragging our cases behind us and walk up to the reception . the guy on the desk doesn't even acknowledge us until we are standing in front of him! he checks us in and directs us to the elevator (no offer to take our bags up) we get to our room and realise that the people in the next room are there to party so we call downstairs and ask to move to a quieter room, the room is quieter, I booked a loft suite. its very narrow has high ceilings and a very steep staircase to the loft bedroom. Too high to bring the cases up so we have to leave our luggage downstairs. there is not much storage room at all and the bathroom is downstairs, so if you have to get up in the night to pee it's a real hassle as by the time you get downstairs, you're wide awake!
bathrooms are clean but very dated and hideous fluorescent lighting!
The only saving graces are the most comfy beds, and the close proximity to we ho.
I would not recommend this place or stay here again.

Thank you for your review.

I’m very sorry to hear that your stay with us was less than satisfactory. We do have concierge staff and its very possible they may have been assisting another customer. Regardless, our valet attendant should’ve offered to help you with your luggage or contacted our concierge staff to provide assistance.

Our loft suites have a stairway that leads to the upstairs loft. Heavier bags would most likely remain downstairs, unless a guest feels comfortable carrying them upstairs. The living room and the bathroom are both located downstairs along with a 42” HDTV, wetbar, fridge, etc.

Thank you for acknowledging our clean bathrooms and comfortable beds. We offer a great, centralized location for guests who want to be in the heart of WEHO.

Stayed here with my husband and two older teenagers.We found the room a good size,we had some trouble with the room as the fridge leaked but the staff came straight away and fixed the problem and we changed rooms.The staff were very helpful and were happy to help with suggestions on places to visit,The restaurant attached to the hotel had great food at a great price and the staff were lovely.Many things were a short walk or a taxi ride away costing about $10-$15 a trip,but we did hire a car which was a great price from avon car rentals,I would recommend this hotel to anyone we had a very enjoyable stay

Thank you for your review.

We appreciate your acknowledgement of the friendly customer service you were provided by our staff. I’m very pleased to hear they all did their personal best to meet your needs.

Kitchen 24 has been a nice addition to Ramada Plaza and provides a wonderful selection of food, appetizers and drinks. The menu items are reasonably priced and they’re open 24 hours a day. K24 serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and they also feature a popular happy hour, 7 days a week.

Ramada Plaza WEHO has an excellent location and places it guests within walking distance to many exciting night clubs, fine restaurants and great shopping on Santa Monica, Sunset Blvd and La Cienega Blvd. We’re also located less than -1- mile from the Beverly Center, Beverly Connection, Cedar Sinai Medical Center and the Grove.

Enterprise Rent-a-Car is one of several retail outlets we have available on-site. Our other retailers include: Starbucks Coffee, Kitchen 24, Burgerim, Supercuts, Wells Fargo Bank, Flywheel Sports, Garden Nail and Spa and Body Factory Smoothies. Traders Joe’s is also located conveniently across the street.

Had tickets to a show at Hollywood House of Blues, and wanted something walking distance. ramada was closest for halfway reasonable price. Service, cleanliness, and staff all were great. Room was ok, tv off center from bed, and ac did not work. watch out for #29 parking fee,

Thank you for your review.

Ramada Plaza WEHO has an excellent location and places it guests within walking distance to many exciting night clubs (including the House of Blues), fine restaurants and great shopping on Santa Monica Blvd., Melorse Avenue, Sunset Blvd and La Cienega Blvd.

Overnight parking is not inexpensive in West Hollywood. However, our parking charges are actually lower than most hotels located in West Hollywood.

I apologize for the inconvenience regarding your air conditioner. We have maintenance staff available on-site that can repair or replace the unit, if necessary.
