There’s absolutely nothing wrong with going to Hollywood, especially when you can experience the fabulous benefits of Beverly Hills and the luxury and style of a world-class hotel the same time.
That is what you have at your fingertips at the modern and classic and oh-so-fashionable The London West Hollywood, where a $23 million renovation project has completed its first phase. That means new and modern suites and specialty suites on the ninth floor, plus a brand new 2,600 square foot state-of-the-art fitness center. Not only will you up your cool quotient by staying at a luxury hotel just steps from the Sunset Strip with the jaw-dropping LA and Beverly Hills skylines gleaming in the background, but you will be pampered, thanks to the omnipresent exceptional service, and the grandness of the brand-new ninth floor suites that should make The London West Hollywood one of the most sought-after luxury properties in Southern California.
“The London West Hollywood is a cool place to be. It is cutting edge on all fronts, from technology to service to design, and its world-class location.”
The redesign of the ninth floor was performed by the original designer of the property, David Collins Studio. It features sixteen Royal Vista suites as well as five specialty Gate Suites that pay homage to London’s Hyde Park.
“I have been waiting to work again with The London West Hollywood since the day we opened, as the property delivers the David Collins Studios’ unique understanding of design, service and beyond,” says Simon Rawlings, creative director of the David Collins Studio. “The new Gate Suites will also take our timeless design to the next level.”
Being in close proximity to Rodeo Drive and the shops and boutiques on Robertson Avenue means you’ll need some extra room to lay out shopping bags, and the one and two-bedroom Gate Suites are large, ranging from 1,425 square feet to almost 2,000, complete with kitchens or kitchenettes, 53″ flat screen televisions and three terraces that provide spectacular views of Tinseltown. When you’re in the land of stars, you want to feel like a star, or at least be treated like one, and Gate Suites’ guests have one-way airport transportation at their disposal if needed, and the much-appreciated VIP in-suite check-in which allows you to breeze into the hotel and up to your suite.
The new construction of the Gate Suites will tempt you to stay inside your room, but remember, you are in the epicenter of the show business world, and there is so much to see and explore in a short radius from the hotel. Celebrities abound everywhere, including in the restaurants and bar at The London West Hollywood, all under the direction of Michelin-starred chef/TV star Gordon Ramsay. His signature restaurant, Gordon Ramsay at The London West Hollywood, was his very first on the West Coast. His Rooftop by Gordon Ramsay is a perfect place to soak in the sights of Hollywood and Beverly Hills, a serene and tranquil place to enjoy a glass of wine or cocktail as the sizzle sparkles below. And make sure you pack your bathing suit and spend some time enjoying the magical views at the rooftop pool, which is heated year-round, and has luxury cabanas and plush lounge chairs surrounding it that allow you to get as much or as little privacy as you desire.
The London West Hollywood is a cool place to be. It is cutting edge on all fronts, from technology to service to design, and its world-class location and brand-new floor of luxury suites make it a destination onto itself.
