Rated 1 out of 5 by mytr464 Never again
The hotel and facilities are lovely however the front desk staff did not follow through on the commitment to process charges on check out. After a nice stay this sours the whole experience. We will stay elsewhere in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sebastian212 Not a typical W experience
From check in to check out, this had to be the worst W experience I've had. The only person who was actually friendly was the young man who got me a taxi when I was leaving.
The front desk needs to be taught some basic manners. I was appalled at the attitude they had towards me and the other guests who we're checking in/out at the same time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PureGlamTV Huge different on staff and day of arrival
Arrived on this property on a Sunday afternoon for the second time and the first stay was simply perfect.
This time the staff was completely busy, so no one could assist with the luggage, checkin needed about 15 minutes..
The room was again very beautiful with great view over LA and the Hollywood Sign - the typical equipments (e..g. Internet, car service, etc.) works again very beautiful.
The breakfast bar for SPG-Platinum guests was horrible - you didn't had the chance to select your continental breakfast - you had to select ONE of the items (toast with butter OR cereals OR fruits... - a try to explain it to the staff was without success on both days)
The funniest thing was to receive a fruit basket and bottles of complimentary water 1 hour before checking out on the second day...
Great location - great view - but it really depends extremly on the staff and date of arrival - Sunday is no good day after all the party during the weekend...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Catherine44 Great Location; Exceptional staff and service
We were a family of 7 travelling to the W. From the moment we arrived the staff went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable and relaxed - not easy when you are a family of 7 ranging in age from 10-50 yrs! Of special mention is Shannon the concierge and Simon the porter, who went out of their way to help us . We will definitely be back!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Eveyen The first disappointment with W Hotel
My room wasn't ready after 2 hours waiting in the lobby. My room is accross from some metal staircase that people were making really loud footsteps and talking on cells at 4 am and woke me up!!
Additionally, no towels were accessible by the pool so I had to retrieve one from my room and we even found 1 cup inside the pool!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cliffnelson Brief stay, much more to discover
A good W hotel; I did not do enough exploring of all the hotels amenities. There are a lot of restaurants and clubs at the hotel as well as a pool and gym I did not get to check out. The room was good, though no effort was made to provide an upgrade. The valet is extremely expensive, but that seems to be the case with LA.

Rated 4 out of 5 Excellent hotel for clubbing
Walking distance to great music at Avalon Hollywood. Very high energy, glamorous hotel. Yes it is going to be loud.
Stay at the Westwood if you don't plan on staying up til 3am and crashing.
My room was on the 5th floor even though my preferences say high floor. That was very annoying considering the suite cost $600.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynrow Great service-found my jacket left in room!
I left my jacket in the room closet in my rush to get to a meeting, and didn't notice until the next day. At first they didn't have it logged, but the manager, Chris, called me to tell me they had found it. I picked it up later that day and Chris personally remembered me. Great service where a lot of hotels fall short.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Goblinlab Cool and Hip Design (but forgotten housekeeping)
Well-decorated room and cool lobby bar. (Almost a little too designed to appear funky and hip.)
Biggest disappointment was getting back to my room on second night and finding no one cleaned the room. I had to wait in the lobby for an hour while they sent housekeeping up. (A free drink at the bar would've been nice.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vinny32 This hotel has great accommodations
The hotel is centrally located to everything in Hollywood. It's rooms are spacious and clean with great features. The staff is professional and very pleasant to deal with. The night life at the hotel is great. They had a jazz band playing one night during our stay it was a great show. I plan on staying there again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Troy2112 Enjoyable
My wife, four adult children and I really enjoyed the hotel. Check In was quick. The room was ready early. We had an A/C issue and we were upgraded to a suite w/ a very quick and easy room change. The night life was fun. We were very close to many sights within walking distance and driving. I would recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sharon78260 W Review
The counters in bathroom were not very clean, hair left. The blind control would not work, which I did not discover until midnight and then the hotel wanted to send an engineer to my room. Who does that with a single woman in a room at midnight............The lady that checked me in was outstanding....

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaveK W is for WOW
What a fantastic stay we had at the W Hollywood. We spent three nights at the hotel in a 'wonderful' room which is exactly what it was. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and the food is excellent.
The hotel facilities are very good including the well equipped gym. Would recommend this hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by eyc7889 short night stay
good service at Valet and front desk. Room was clean but some furniture (window seat cushion) is dated with some dirty markings (looks like blood...) AC is a little noisy. Bed was comfortable, bathroom is very nice. Overall, satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MrGreen First Time at Hotel
Fabulous facilities and housekeeping staff was beyond wonderful. Hotel was very well kept and access to everything from shopping to the Metro and right on Hollywood Blvd.
Only negative - had issues with an event that was happening at the hotel and sent an email to the GM twice with no response.

Rated 5 out of 5 by joshstern Fabulous Stay in Hollywood
If it wasn't starting my stay off with a friendly greeting by the valet gentlemen, or the personalization of my experience, it was the level of professionalism that every W employee had. Each member in our party was treated as royalty and we can't wait to stay at the W Hollywood again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jack3234522 No SPG Platinum recognition
As a SPG Platinum member, I was given a small basic room with no upgrades and my view from the window as no view at all. I was directly facing another huge building 10 feet away. might as well not have a window. What a horrible way to celebrate an anniversary.

Rated 4 out of 5 by araices Great customer service
The hotel was in a great location. If your are into socializing and love the night life, this hotel is a must. However, if your are travelling with kids I dont recommend it. Fatima, who worked at the front desk, is the greatest worker I have ever come across in my days of traveling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LFCorsten Most personal Welcome Amenity ever !!
After a average check-in we where surprised by a wonderfully personal Welcome amenity. A Frame with signatures and messages from the staff of the W Hollywood. Thank you. This made my stay very impressive.
About the awesome pool or the location is not more to say than: Excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jessnherboys adult hotel
i didnt realize how adult the hotel is until i arrived. the hotel. it feels more like a night club the entire time. my trip was fun because i won a free trip and stay at the W. Get to the pool early no later than 12 if you wanna lay out in the sun to have a lounge chair. enjoy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by TVCreator good to party, less good for work
great spot for a Friday or Saturday night with friends if you want a pseudo-club experience in Hollywood. Less welcoming to business travelers or people who aren't in the mood to party. Staff is very pleasant but it requires a certain mindset to get into the vibe of the hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dion Great Hotel shame about the build quality
Another great W hotel! however i would advise anyone from staying here due to one fact, the noise! whenever anyone closes their room door on the same floor as yours, you will hear a loud bang and your entrance walls will shake, really bad build quality which means no sleep!

Rated 1 out of 5 by 1Guy Very noisy
Due to outside noise from people shouting and loud music going on until at least 3o'clock in the early morning we got no sleep. The windows couldn't have been soundproof and the noise came from the hotel premises. Very unsatisfactory as a hotel is where you go to sleep !!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Marc49 We stayed at this property
We originally stayed at the W because of its closeness to the Pantages. However, after spending the weekend at the W we would stay weather we were going to the theater or not. We had a wonderful stay at the W Hollywood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ejpeter Best Hotel EVER!
I've been in four star hotels before that should have never been called a four star. The W should definitely be called a 5 star hotel. Very clean, staff and customer service was the best I've ever experienced. Will definitely book here the next time we come to Hollywood!
