Firstly let me point out that this is a 4 star hotel based in West Hollywood and having been in the Mondrian (across the road) and seen The Standard Hotel (1 minute away) I would say the Andaz is the better option by far. We stayed here for 3 nights.
I do not know why other reviewers were complaining about having a chaotic check in area because there is a desk placed at the front door where staff check you in either on a iPad or a desktop computer. Also reviewers have complained about wi-fi. I had free wi-fi throughout my stay for my iPhone and Mac so I do not see any issues there - you just log in to the free bit. I am not sure if this has changed recently but do not let other people's reviews put you off.
The rooms are large and very minimalistic. You either like that sort of thing or you do not, it could have had a nice chair or something filling some of the space. Nice TV though and we had a nice view of downtown LA as our room was positioned on Sunset Boulevard. *** I must warn you though, ask for a high floor, we were on the 10th floor and we could still hear traffic late at night. It didnt bother us but it may bother a lighter sleeper. ***
The Andaz also gives provides free soft drinks and crisps/nuts in your room each day. I do not know many other hotels who do this. Nice touch.
The Andaz also provides between 5pm-7pm complimentary red or white wine to guest which is again a nice touch. The bar also has happy hour 6pm-9pm for drinks - beer $3.50 Wine $6.00
Staff were great and always helpful. Nice buzz around the place too.
How could I forget .......Rooftop Pool ! Fantastic views and the Hollywood hills overlook it. Didnt go for a swim as a little cold but I bet this place is great in the Summer months.
