Los Angeles, California
What it is
A 265-room party den rising 12 stories over Hollywood Boulevard, with a sceney rooftop pool and bar.
What it isn't
Too cool for comfort. Relaxation still reigns here—note the pillowtop mattresses, fluffy goose down comforters and Bliss Spa amenities in the Carrara marble-lined bathrooms.
What we think
If you came to Lalaland to become the next “It Girl” or “It Guy,” well...this is it, the ideal launchpad. W Hollywood has perfected the art of combining seemingly effortless California “cool” with hospitality, from the limousine and grocery shopping service (hey, what’s good enough for an Oscar winner is good enough for you) to the rooftop WET deck, where cabanas flank a pristine turquoise pool looking out over the skyline. Don’t miss the two story, 6,000-square-foot Bliss Spa, where you’ll be “spa-struck” by the triple oxygen facial that leaves your skin red-carpet ready in 75 minutes flat.
You're here because
The hotel has its own Sound Suite, pre-stocked all the required elements of a topnotch recording studio—and you have a hankering to become the next Weezer.
There are so many up-and-coming starlets awaiting at table at organic-focused Delphine Eatery & Bar, it’s plainly obvious you’ve come to the right place. But after a bite of your lobster artichoke melt on croissant, you realize they’re not here to be discovered—they’re here for the resplendent food. “Waiter, can I order a Bourbon Dreams cocktail?” You’ll cheers to that.
Restaurants & Bars
- Delphine - American cuisine with a French flair

Centrally located on Hollywood Boulevard—home to the Hollywood Walk of Fame—you’re within a quick stroll of Hollywood highs (NeueHouse cultural center, with its rooftop cinema club) and delicious, touristy lows (the Museum of Broken Relationships, as seen on The Bachelor).
