W Hotels Worldwide, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., announced the completion of the $25 million renovation of W Los Angeles – West Beverly Hills, formerly known as W Los Angeles – Westwood. Nestled between the foothills of Beverly Hills and Bel-Air, while just minutes from Los Angeles’ Sunset Boulevard and the famed beaches of Santa Monica, the transformation, led by Dawson Design Associates, creates spaces where travelers can immerse themselves in a quintessential Los Angeles experience. The top-to-bottom renovation also includes a new destination restaurant, STK, through a partnership with The ONE Group which is scheduled to open this summer. STK will also provide an updated menu concept at WET®, the lushly landscaped ground-level pool featuring classic California-style cabanas.
Beneath an artistic canopy of floating back lit sculptures that seamlessly transition from day to night, guests are welcomed into the signature W Living Room (the W take on the staid hotel lobby) with vibrant pulsating lights that sync with the beat from the DJ. Located within a hidden alcove and adjacent to the Living Room Bar, the Oasis is the heart of the redesigned Living Room and features a stunning 12 foot water wall, reflecting ever-changing projections and further luring guests inside of the W experience.
Drawing inspiration from the iconic bungalows of Beverly Hills, W Los Angeles – West Beverly Hills has unveiled 297 newly re-imagined suites, including an Extreme WOW suite (the W brand’s take on the Presidential Suite) that comes equipped with an intimate, state-of-the-art screening room. Fresh and contemporary in décor while maintaining a bold and modern design, each suite is detailed with sleek sectional sofas and sophisticated lighting, along with louvered windows and filtered light, evoking the feeling of seclusion within a Beverly Hills garden retreat.
W Los Angeles – West Beverly Hills features refreshed event spaces that are the ideal destination for press junkets, weddings, conferences, meetings and other events. Guests and savvy locals have access to the signature BLISS Spa®. The 7,000 square foot tension-fighting spa features ten treatment rooms, movie-while-you-manicure nail stations, luxe men’s and women’s lounges, the Bliss Spa store, trademark touches like rhythm & blues tunes and the legendary brownie buffet. The hotel also provides the ultimate in insider access to guests, including Rendition – a new live music series taking place the last Thursday of every month at 8 p.m. in Living Room Bar.
