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.

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.
