“Experience LA in posh Style at the W Hotel in Hollywood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

There are a few hotels on Hollywood blvd but the multitude of pros versus cons that the W Hotel provides makes it the clear cut choice above almost all the other hotels. If you have business on Hollywood blvd, Sunset, Melrose, Highland, La cienega, santa monica ectera then this hotel is for you. Cozy, modern, superb front desk service, close proximity to a lot of hollywood attractions, Katsuya Sushi restaurant is across the street and so much more. The Drais Club on the rooftop is something to see as well if you are feeling social.
Don't feel pressured to pay the $25-$40 valet parking. There is a public parking lot literally next to the hotel where you can pay $10 overnight.
Also you never know who you might run into at this hotel. I was staying there during the All Star Weekend (during one of my many stays) and rubbed shoulders with Bruce Willis, Neyo, Kobe, Kanye, Dirk Nowitzski, Jordan, Vin Diesel & More at the NIKE party in the lobby. I advice you play the part, maintain composure and not act star-struck taking photos or things of the like and your experience will be more pleasant.
In summary, its my top choice in hollywood even though the room rates on special weekends tend to be a little pricey.

Room Tip: Wonderful rooms are perfect. The fabulous & spectacular rooms are just a tad better if you can r...

Hello!

Our location is ideal for getting just about any where in LA with the tram being located just steps from our hotel. Explore as you like, or take an Uber anywhere you need. You seem very familiar with the area, but if you like to try something off the beaten path, connect with our Insider Chris. He'd be glad to get you a few recommendations.

We are known for our lively environment and occasionally host some high profile events. Sunday Jazz is a local favorite and always worth a look. Stop by early to get a great seat.

See you next time,
Leon Y.

We arrived at the W hotel after an internal flight from Fort Worth/Dallas, this was our third stop on our trip and at this point we were pretty exhausted. We arrived just as Jazz night was starting and the very helpful Reception Guy said we were more than welcome to attend as we were guests of the hotel. As a couple of exhausted Brits in hoodies and jeans we didn't feel like glamming it up but thought we'd check it out later, Reception Guy did point out that some 'famous celebs' sometimes attend. Not really the way to win over Londoners but it was sweet of him. He gave us complimentary wifi though which was fab. I am shocked they'd even dare charge $15 per day for wifi though, bit much considering its a 4*. The room was fab, could not really fault it. I wouldn't be totally at ease if I had to share the room with someone who doesn't normally see me naked though as you could peek into the shower from the main part of the room, all in the name of interior design! Absolutely loved the light that came on each time the wardrobe was opened! More lights are needed though, I had to turn on 4 individually lights to get enough light to do my make up in the evening.

We went down to the lobby in some fresh casual clothes so we could find a place to grab food and the Jazz night was in full swing. To say we felt out of place (dress wise!) was an understatement. We hadn't planned on staying but couldn't even go to the bar for a quick drink. The entrances also had ropes and doormen, which to be fair wasn't a problem and we had no issues going in and out but it didn't make me feel welcome in my home for the next three nights. Thankfully that was the last busy night and we did enjoy drinks in the bar the next night. Sadly the music was very loud and went on into the night and we could still hear it when we went to bed. However the next two nights were bliss and the bed was SO comfortable. I wanted to ship it home.

Generally was very good but I would only book this if you are into the glitz and glam, we much preferred our other hotels. It was a little far out but right next to Hollywood & Vine Metro station that we used once to go to Universal Studios City Walk. Looking back I chose this over Loews but think we would have been better off there, firstly for the location and secondly as it wasn't quite so 'up its own rear end'. We picked up our car rental from Loews to drive to San Francisco and it seemed a little more friendly. The W seems to be run by an age group from 20-23 which is no big issue but its nice to see a more diverse age group and we're only in our late 20s!

Room Tip: Choose a high level floor if you stay on a night when they have a big event, a tad quieter! We were...

We've stayed at the W for just a night - and this was enough.

Due to my Platinum SPG level we got an upgrade to - as the receptionist said - on of their best Suites, a Corner Suite with Hollywood sign view.

The Suite was on the 5th floor and this negative in two ways:
- we got all the street noise Hollywood Blvd, day and night
- since the curtains don't close 100% we got all lights into our bedroom

The room itself was huge, with a separate living room - but an open bathroom to the bedroom. Everything looks a bit old, used - which isn't acceptable at the price charged.

There're better hotels at this price level. So better stay somewhere else.

Hello,

We are a very lively hotel in a busy area. Some parts of the hotel may be louder than others, but we do everything we can to accommodate our guests. We are always glad to give an upgrade to our SPG members. Our Fabulous Rooms are some of our most popular rooms in the hotel. Most of our guests love our decor and enjoy the energy. I hope we can welcome you back for another experience.

Best,
Leon Y.

This is by far the most swanky hotel I've ever stayed in. From the valet, to the concierge, to the room it was first class all the way. However, it was friendly and warm first class. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

After a looooong trip here & our travel agent booking the wrong hotel our stay in Hollywood was off too a terrible start, but thanks to the friendly staff and most of all the incomparable Christian our holiday has been resurrected!

Can't say enough about the effort he put in to put us at ease! Thanks W Hollywood and Christian great work...

Highly recommend this fabulous hotel. Great location with fantastic restaurants within walking distance, fun atmosphere, luxurious rooms, amazing roof top pool & lounge, but above all else wonderful, helpful, friendly staff ready to accommodate any request. Special thanks to the lovely front desk Talent Christian - he deserves employee of the year for his astute attention to detail!!

We stayed here for a day in March. The staff are not rude or anything but they aren't that great either. Don't expect smiles or friendly faces. I did not feel a personal connection to the staff or the hotel. They were average. I think i expected more from the hotel. We stayed in a nice room overlooking hollywood boulevard. The rooms are very modern and I like their decor. A lot like the W San Francisco where we stayed before. Small and smart decors. Ordered in one time. Their eggs benedict was pricey but nothing special. They forgot to give us a wake up call. Feel like they need to care a bit more about the guests who come to stay there.
