Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a movie star?
You won’t ever have to wonder again once you have experienced the W Hollywood, where guests literally walk the red carpet when checking in.
Located at the legendary corner of Hollywood and Vine, the W Hollywood is nestled among hip restaurants, nightclubs, theaters and the world famous Hollywood Walk of Fame — the perfect spot to see and be seen amid all the glitz and glamour that Hollywood has to offer.
The phrase “I’ll meet you in the lobby” takes on a whole new meaning at the W Hollywood, with a larger than life main area known as The Living Room. With inviting black leather couches, a spiraling staircase and stunning chandelier, the décor adds to the lively scene where the vacasionist, the business traveler and the Hollywood star all feel equally at home.
The scene in the lobby couldn’t be any more fun or unique, but when it’s time for a break check out the 35-foot outdoor movie screen complete with fire pits, comfy seating and a seemingly endless array of dazzling drinks. You can mingle and sparkle beneath the stars while being swept away on the screen.
Check out the stars at even closer range at the W Hollywood’s sexy and stunning rooftop pool. Featuring private cabanas and daybeds, you will fall right in line with the in crowd and join the party every weekend where the Wet Deck, as it is known, hosts a pool party where the beautiful people dress to impress.
Of course, looking your best takes some work, so help yourself to a serious workout at the fitness center or some serious pampering at the spa. Then, after you have nourished your mind and soul, you must not miss the French bistro Delphine, or for a rocking Southern California style steak dinner, Drai’s Hollywood on the roof is your place, with stunning views of LA and a dance floor that makes Studio 54 seem dull and dreary.
Join the scene, get the buzz, indulge and sizzle at the W Hollywood, where they are serious about putting the Hot in Hotel.
