Hotel Description

Westwood is not quite the hippest corner of Los Angeles, but the W doesn’t seem to notice; this hotel’s high-design glamour looks a bit out of place, like turning up to a sorority mixer in an Issey Miyake original. Then again, this is Los Angeles, and the neighboring college is UCLA—so maybe anything is possible.

Sixties style is back in fashion, and this hotel’s ‘60s institutional architecture (it was once a UCLA dormitory) has been dressed up with some crowd-pleasing modern touches, from the waterfall beneath the backlit frosted glass entry steps to the low-slung sofas and soft lighting of the Living Room, the lobby lounge.

Accommodations are smart as well, in deep, dark shades of black, brown and plum. Far from its dorm-room past, the W is all suites, and generously sized at that, with furniture custom-made from African hardwoods, and Bliss products gracing the bathrooms. Broadband internet, CD players, and 27-inch televisions are standard, and the W beds are some of the most comfortable in the business.

Half of all success, at least in LA, lies in developing the right attitude; and so, despite the unlikely location, the W seems to have willed itself to coolness. Whiskey Blue, the nightclub, draws crowds, and not just college kids—many a gossip-worthy face on an expedition to the west side has been seen inside. Call ahead for a spot on the guest list—as a hotel patron you’re guaranteed entry.
